"The new program is really great at training you to be a doctor who learns on their feet and critically thinks. I appreciate how fast we get into clinical experiences and the research opportunities I have. With that said, this school does a lot to market as one for underrepresented students. Turns out, the class cohorts are way less diverse than what they advertise, so please don't get blindsided by this. You also need to be careful about anything public you say (even when not representing UM) as admin retaliates against that."
"Such a disaster, please avoid if you have any sense at all. You have very little time to study for step 1 (<4 weeks), very little elective time in third year (with no ability to do aways), no assistance with research. The people who will be writing your letters of recommendation are generally poor English speakers. In short, if there is a way to screw you over, this school will try to do it. You can even get written up for being sick (and yes it will go in your dean's letter as some vague mention of "unprofessionalism"). Can't make this stuff up."
"While the quality of education in the first two years is less than perfect, this school more than makes up for it on the wards. Students here receive excellent exposure to a variety of cases and play integral roles on their teams during 3rd and 4th year rotations. From what I hear, this fact is very evident to residency program directors throughout the country."
