What impressed you positively?

"LA county hospital is amazing, the ER is a stop on the student tour. Utter chaos, there's nothing you won't see after rotations in there. there's a very collegial atmosphere, the students are friendly and cooperative rather than competitive. the new curriculum is great. the faculty is very approachable, and the administration gives a ton of attention to the students. people here feel spoiled, they're treated so well."
