However as a medical student, this won't effect you too much." | Report Response

"I felt like UB was what you made of it. I did well on my boards, got research experiences that I wanted, and went to an excellent residency in my chosen field. It is not a high-pressure place, so self-motivation is important if you're at UB. Also, the school leaders are very approachable and a great resource." | Report Response
