What are your general comments?

"I will like to comment on the above post. I do not attend the school but have attended an interview in the past and know people affiliated with the school. The USMLE 1 pass rate is not 70% but rather 66-67%, which is far below the national average of 92%. That is a primary reason why I didn't attend Howard. In addition, their new curriculum has many problems and is not well organized. In fact, in some cases, they have to scale grades so that people can pass exams if not many people would fail. The school tends to admit students that have problems getting in somewhere else and there is a high level of discontent among students of the school. In fact, when I interviewed, many of the students warned and pesuaded me not to come to Howard if I can do better. I found that disheartening since there seems to be many people telling me the same thing. However, when I asked my friends, they told me the same. Thankfully, I got accepted somewhere else where I am happy. In addition, the neighborhood of the school is bad and not safe especially at nights. Many people get mugged, cars are stolen, and students attacked. I did not know all this before, so anyone considering this school, think twice about applying. If you have anymore questions, look at the Howard medical school website and their response to an article written by the Hartford Courant. In addition, you can pull up info about that article but putting in "Four That Flunk" in Yahoo or MSN search." Report Response
