What impressed you positively?

"Students are genuinely happy and well-rounded. The school encourages students to have a life outside of medical school; supportive of families. (They even have a lactation room where you can nurse and watch lectures/ communicate with the instructor in privacy. Also, if you are sick and don't want to cough all over everyone you can use that too.) State of the art facilities & technology! There are huge windows and lots of light everywhere; even in the middle of a snow storm. Teachers/ faculty really care about the students and work hard to prepare students - they organize mandatory shadowing opportunities in the first year! " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
