What impressed you negatively?

"Quite a lot. The school's location, although far from rural (more like rich suburban- Think sprawling estates), the location is abysmal. There is really NOTHING to do around campus. When asked what they do for fun, the tour guide simply pretended to sip on an imaginary flask and said ''we drink alot''. The atmosphere of the school felt alot like highschool, and the dorms were cramped,and at $660, way overpriced for what you get. Most student there seemed to pretty much have gone there reluctantly due to a lack of acceptances, and the overall feel was that they are overworked and are unhappy. Clinical experience, as I was told, is a function of ''the student's ability and drive to multitask and take it on''. Don't expect to be pushed to become a competent clinician here.

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Admissions building is a bit hard to find. Sunshine Cottage road, unfortunately, does not define a building. It also doesn't help that the building does not contain (or at least I didn't see) a bold sign declaring it's purpose. All of people interviewing that day either 1)were on their first and only interview, 2)were not accepted elsewhere, 3)were reapplicants. " Report Response

"I gave this school a fair shot, I honestly did, but just can't imagine myself there for the next four years. Unless you have not been accepted elsewhere, or they make you an increadible offer you cannot refuse, steer clear of this school. " Report Response
