What impressed you positively?

"I think this school is up and coming. The last Dean definitely made it a priority to make Brown a national powerhouse, and the new Dean has vouched the same. the faculty is so warm and caring, the matchlist is unbelievable, everybody at brown values the medcial student, and the clinical training is truly remarkable. once the new med school is built in the jewelry district, and once the merger between care new england and lifespan is complete, the new brown university medical center will rival those other new england medical centers of high eminence. i would be proud to be an alumni of this school" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"i think the plme program is what is holding alpert back. in no other university is the 8 year program so valued, and in no other place are there no gpa requirements for the program. this makes a lot of the students, in my opinion, no where near as prepared as the standard route applicants. although racially diverse, this maeks a very experientially undiverse student population. also applies to those linkage programs.
