What impressed you negatively?

"There are not enough cadavers for students to do their own dissections for every system. They tried to spin this as a strength, saying that med students just don't have time to do all their own dissections, so this is a time saver, since people only learn from looking, anyway. (Um....then why do dissections at all?) Several medical students we passed on the tour said "Don't come here! This school is terrible. lol." The only students we were allowed to interact with were first years, who couldn't speak to clinical rotations, their preparation for step, ease of access to faculty mentorship, or anything other than the 2 month old curriculum."
