What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with the facilities here. The faculty seems very concerned with making PLFSOM a great place to get an education. The curriculum is very modern, and the dean of the curriculum has experience starting another med school from scratch--so he knows what he's doing. The current first years seem to be a quality bunch--very enthusiastic and down-to-earth. They are quite diverse in terms of background/age." Report Response
