Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

1 out of 10

What do you like most?

"I got accepted with a very low score. They accept anyone, and everyone gets off the waitlist since most people accepted to WCUCOM and somewhere else choose the somewhere else." Report Response

What do you like least?

"EVERYTHING ELSE. Attendance is required so you have barely any time outside of class to study, because of this there's not enough time for self-care, cooking, exercise, STUDYING, sleeping, etc. William Carey doesn't care-y about anything except how to bring the school more money at any chance they can get. They'll fail students based on a ONE question difference, just to make them pay extra tuition for a semester. Carey also does NOT get the same experience and opportunities as other medical schools. Also, they are very unfair and irrational when doing placements for rotations. Someone can have a wife and baby or a significant other or family living in a rotation cite city, but they'll choose to give it to someone with no connections to that city. They don't listen to the students opinions or desires or care about what the students ever have to say." Report Response

What are the facilities and clinics like (old/new, well maintained, etc.)?

"old, cheap equipment; we don't really get any real patient experience, unlike all other medical schools, we DON'T practice IV's, blood draws, or vaccinations on real humans, we practice on dolls." Report Response

How do students from this program do after graduation - are they adequately prepared for practice?

"99% go into primary care" Report Response

What are rotations like?

"ALL are in the middle of nowhere, they don't care about love because even if you have a fiance or a significant other or a wife and kids that live in a rotation site, they might put you somewhere else and put someone with ZERO connections in that spot instead. They are very unfair because they selfishly want to keep small rotation sites that NO ONE wants to go to so they'll put people there with no support and far from their loved ones, instead of adding more sites at a better place just so that they can keep the place as a rotation site, at the expense of the well-being and mental health of the students."

No Response

Any other information you want to share?

"William Carey's curriculum is set up in a horrible way. If you get accepted ANYWHERE ELSE, go there instead. Also, William Carey has no place for the students to study. There's a few small windowless rooms with tables, otherwise you can study in the lecture hall where classes are held or at home. The school library closes at 5pm, which doesn't help when class gets out at 2 or 3pm or later. Most students study at home or go to USM's library to study. There is also no student lounge and not enough parking." Report Response
