What are your general comments?

"Quinnipiac seems like a great school - because they do not conduct their own research, the faculty are devoted 100% to the students and ensuring their success. The class sizes are small and tight-knit, and it seems that there is no stressful competition between students. The curriculum is organ-based, which many medical schools are transitioning to, and unlike some other schools they seem to be well transitioned to this curriculum. The students seem completely happy with the school- they really didn't have anything negative to say. The only negative I can see is the commuter campus aspect- there is no student housing, although they do help you to find people to live with and suggest housing options. And because they are not associated with just one hospital, you will have to drive to your clinical sites." Report Response
