What impressed you negatively?

"Dr. Haight is nice but he has a very diplomatic way at answering/avoiding questions. It seems like the school is very secretive about its clinical 3rd and 4th years which are the MOST IMPORTANT years of med school. I don't really care about its campus, but I needed answers on its rotations and board scores but were not answered. The school also has no real tangible plans for the future that they could show us. Students also seemed secretive and protective of what they know very little of what their school is up to." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they'd be so secretive about 3rd and 4th year curriculum, when those normally are what schools are proud of and eager to elborate to attract students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I'm quite disappointed by the school. It seems like the school is full of students that need to be in the bay area more so than caring about their clinical rotations and board scores. To be fair, I know it is only a personal feeling but the admin definitely did not help to improve that feeling by avoiding talking much about those topics." Report Response
