What are your general comments?

"the med school is definitely on the rise. the MPH program is not in a separate school of public health, but is solid; the preventive medicine program was given an outstanding educational program of the year award in 2004. portland is awesome. i've read some posts that the admissions office is really disorganized and slow, but my experience was much to the contrary. they were always polite and helpful, and i got snail-mail updates on my application.
