What impressed you positively?

"All the faculty is excited about the university. Many left well established jobs and careers to be a part of this and are really great at showing how much they believe in the mission of the school. The fact they have more faculty than students is major b/c you will spend 4 years without any competition and you will get a lot more attention. The professors will be like your friends b/c of how few members there are, and everyone will get a chance to start their own club or be officers and establish everything that they can think of because the school is waiting to be developed in that sense. In the library section everyone gets their own cubicle and when rotation time comes around (and they do have some great affiliations already, including working closely with UMMSM) you will have a lot of experience coming your way b/c you won't have to fight and share with another 150 med students in your class." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Wish the facilities were finished. Right now it's in the top floor of the Health Life Sciences II Building and much of the school is kind of spread out b/c they're taking up available space. But that's to be expected being a new school in a big university. " Report Response
