What are your general comments?

"When I saw the school, i was not really impressed with the facilities. But the staff are nice. 35k+ tuition and fees. Very expensive school. Most applicants want to come here due to the location. I felt isolated in the island. They don't have any hospital on the island. So, i guess there won't be much clinical exposure during your first two years. Acceptance fee $2000 (due within two weeks) is a killer to me. So, I decided not to keep this school on my list after getting acceptance. Information about DO/MPH dual program was a little bit too much. I'm not interested. $12,000 for MPH. Their MPH program hasn't even yet accredited until 2009 (possibly). No other dual program other than MPH. I felt that there are not a lot of opportunities here." Report Response
