What impressed you positively?

"ALL of the students seemed to genuinely love Jeff and have an INCREDIBLE work/life balance. Every single person said that they have a life outside of school and go out on the weekends or do whatever it is that they like. Honestly, if nothing else, the mindset that everyone has about balance could convince me to go here. YOU GET THE WEEK BEFORE EXAMS OFF!!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only negative I perceived was that the library (and potentially more of the spaces on campus?) are shared with OT/pharm/nursing etc students....this could just be me, but I liked at other schools that there was space for only med students and no one else. Also, class size is one of the biggest (275)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The tour takes you outside so be prepared. It was a bit rainy during ours and it didn't make a huge difference, but having an umbrella would have been nice." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Honestly, I have interviews at schools that are "ranked higher" than Jeff, but the student's attitudes + work/life balance + the exam schedule thing very well could convince me to go here." Report Response
