What are your general comments?

"Very well done. Dr. Winn's opening speech was lively, humorous, and educational. The day was long, but it was always interesting to listen to the speakers, med students, residents. The med students in my tour group chose CU out of other acceptance offers. They had no negative comments or weaknesses to offer regarding the program (despite the fact we all kept asking them!). They're building a new workout facility to be opened next year. A great example of how student feedback is taken seriously by the school." Report Response
