What impressed you positively?

"Just about everything. Loved the Harrell Center. STAN was cool. Faculty was nice. Students seemed excited and happy. Students also do amazingly well on Step 1's. They also seem to be on top of their game with most things such as having converted their histology class to looking at images on the computer instead of standing all day at a microscope with slides."

"Nothing really. Students said they have to work non-stop, but I think that is expected for just about any med school." Report Response

"They use standardized patients. Their curriculum seems very traditional and there is only a little bit of patient interaction in the first two years. It seems to work for their students though." Report Response

What are your general comments?
