What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum fits my background well. The anatomy lab was state of the art-each station has a computer over the cadaver which the student can look up how to perform any dissection he/she needs. Also, the 3 students to 1 cadaver ratio is the best I've seen in places I've interviewed. A small school feel was nice. On campus housing and adjacent apt (called Woodlands) make living close to/on campus easy. Great match list. Great step 1 preparation according to a friend of mine who is a graduate of RFU. Current students appear to love the school. Friendly professors. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
