What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How isolated the classes in the medical school seem to be from each other. M1s and 2s seem to know each other pretty well, but that cohesion seemed to be lost as 2nd years become 3rd years. For me, it seemed like opportunities for mentoring between upperclassmen and underclassmen are really lost." Report Response
