What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I absolutely loved it here. The students were all very happy and helpful. They've put a lot into making the school the best it can be, and it really shows. They actively try to fix problems and concerns and are doing a great job. They have awesome board pass rates. The professors are accessible and they integrate both lecture and PBL into the curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only thing I can think of is that starting with the class of 2015, you have to pick where you want to do your 3rd and 4th year rotations at the time that you are accepted. This doesn't bother me, but I feel like I'm not equipped to make a decision at this time because I don't know anything about any of the programs/hospitals, etc. I'm hoping they'll provide more information if I'm accepted before I have to decide. But other than that, I have no complaints about the school." Report Response
