What are your general comments?

"This was the worst interview ive been on yet. The school totally sux, the tour was 3 seconds long (i didnt care cuz i wanted to leave). They didnt show us anything. Theres no gym, you can get a ''discout'' to the YMCA next door. I got grilled in the interview about why i think i could handle PBL which annoying bc they had no reason to assume i couldnt. They didnt ask anything outside of PBL related questions. Didnt even ask why i wanna be a doc? I thought that was standard. Anyways, the interview was just plain annoying. What really turned me off was the 2 hour PBL session. The students seeemed so lost, i got the feeling they ahd no idea what they were studying or anything. The ''facilitator'' was not helpful in the least. When the students asked questions, he wouldnt answer them. It was unreal. Like goin to medschool and given absolutley nothing but the books. They actually sit there googling things!!! They also spend like 10 minutes looking up a word they never seen before. The whole experience was mind-boggling. Personally PBL looked cool at first but i dont think it prepares you for the boards at all. One of the students actually told me that their first year, there class had the lowest pass rate in the nation. They claim they got the highest in the country last year, but im just not impressed with that. Im not willing to take that risk. I wish i knew what i was gettin myself into, i coulda saved a lot of money, i wouldnt go to this school if it were my only option. " Report Response
