What impressed you negatively?

"The school doesn't offer any student housing, and although it is in a city, it is recommended that you have a car. They also recently transitioned to an organ-based curiculum this year, which is great, BUT it sounds like the professors haven't fully adapted and they are still working out the kinks."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewers were all extremely different - one was a very senior faculty member, one an attending physician, and one a first year resident. Each required a slightly different demeanor/interviewing style." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"MUSC seems like a great school in a great city! Charleston itself is absolutely lovely and has so much to offer. MUSC is in the downtown area and is easily accessible. The campus is combined with the hospital campus, so it is easy to go from classes to clinicals and the library. Though there are many historical buildings, it seems like they are also working to renovate the campus. Overall it seems like a great school!" Report Response
