Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone is SO NICE!!! The faculty and administration seem to truly care about the students, and the atmosphere is very welcoming and supportive. The facilities are BEAUTIFUL- the study carrels, lecture halls, lounges, penthouse, gym, even the anatomy lab are all extremely nice. The students have so much support and opportunities to pursue outside interests via 4 selective courses first year and other extracurricular activities. Children's Hospital and Barnes Jewish area also fantastic hospitals, and I love that Wash U does not have to share those hospitals with other medical schools- so Wash U students are given full attention during third and fourth year. Finally, I love that the grading is pass/fail first year, which is a great way to allow students to adjust to the rigors of medical school and eliminates any competitiveness. But the honors/high pass/pass/fail system 2nd year gives residency directors an additional way to evaluate applicants going in to competitive specialties." Report Response
