What impressed you negatively?

"The remoteness of the location is advantageous for a busy student without much tolerance for distraction. When the time comes around to take a break, unless you like the outdoors a lot, there is just not much to do. At the same time, this remoteness does promote a very tight (close) student body."

"A great school, but the location is not for everybody. The curriculum is a great balance of integrated and subject-based. The facilities are the best I could imagine for a clinically-focused school.
