What are your general comments?

"UCSF is awesome. The opportunities for clinical work, policy, and basic science research are built into their curriculum and the curriculum is constantly evolving if there is something you want to do. It was a much more mellow atmosphere than I had expected, though it does seem like people work very hard. It felt much more like a university campus than I had expected and that was a nice surprise. I can really see why it is the top pharmacy school in the nation." Report Response
