What impressed you positively?

"Faculty, Students, Facilities (Brand New!). The class size was small. The instruction was superb. The curriculum is set up by two very very smart MD's that specialize in curriculum development and is designed to produce favorable results. The school's philosophy was to make med school fun because it's hard either way... they don't want med school to be a miserable experience. The students actually seemd happy (unlike at other schools). Everyone knows each other... from the security guards to the profs to all of the students!" Report Response
