What are your general comments?

"The school impressed me a great deal. I read another person saying the students were googling things and had no clue what they were doing. Reading that I was skeptical but sitting in on the PBL session, I felt the complete opposite. There were things the students did not know off the top of their head but each time, they knew where in the book to turn (and they had like 5 books in front of each of them). They would talk about a case discuss what was happening, why what was happening, and a possible next step and why they would do that next step. Then they would ''order'' a test and discuss the results is so much detail. Aside from that, all the students were very professional and respectful. They were also very disciplined and took their learning seriouslly. I was skeptical of PBL prior to this, but this session made me see how well trained the students become. I was also able to particiapte because I am knowedgeable about diabetes which they were talking about. With that said though, if you do decide on this school, you have to enjoy PBL. It is a different way of learning and it is not for everyone. So when you attend your interviews, I am sure you will get annoyed with how much they are talking about PBL learning, but the reason for that is because thats their style of teaching and they want you to make sure you can be successful in PBL. I did not feel they were trying to sell it to me. Rather they were trying to get me to understand what strengths you need to be successfull in a PBL program." Report Response
