What impressed you positively?

"All of their hospitals were, literally, on campus. Also, I stayed with a student host and he had nothing but great things to say about the school. Above all, what was really impressive is that you can select which campus you want to attend. IUSM has 1 main campus is Indy, and 8 satellite campuses throughout the state. Each campus constructs their curriculum off the same format, but each campus have differences when teaching the material. In general, Indy campus is more problem-based learning, while South Bend is more group oriented (group base learning). " Report Response
