"Random scheduling. Some days you have class starting at 9, othertimes it's 8, 10, 11. Sometimes, it's mandatory and other times it's scheduled for online lectures. The online lectures vary in quality - can be very well done or very poorly executed and you end up having to use the powerpoint/objectives and finding your own resources to learn it yourself (google, textbooks, etc)." | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"The school itself is pretty small; testing center opened in 2015 is 0.5-0.6 miles from the actual campus so getting to tests the day of - you have to drive over and just park on nearby residential neighborhoods. It's a hassle compared to the old system: where tests are held on campus, you bring your own laptops into the lecture room and take the proctored exam (you have much more time before/after to study on campus or prepare for class after exams)." | Report Response

"Excellent professors and top notch education. People come in with lower scores compared to national, but board scores are often 1 SD above national mean." | Report Response

"Not very strong in the pre-clinical years, but very highly regarded in the clinical years. Chair of Surgery is also president of ACS (LD Britt). Lots of pull there." | Report Response
