"The students were definitely less down to earth than other TX schools. They seemed a lot less concerned about treating patients in need (poor ppl, etc), more concerned with their own interests career-wise, and one talked about making inapropriate jokes with her cadaver--such a turnoff. The overview of school seemed really stilted--stuffy--and almost political trying to make other schools look bad in comparison." Report Response
