What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The school was pitched as having a lot of "students teaching students" and new diversity programs were given more attention over traditional medical education. The former left me worried I wouldn't have good instruction (how can all students be good teachers?) and the latter worried me that the school was too political and optics-conscious at the expense of substance."
