What impressed you positively?

"the curriculum is really great. P/F grading in yr 1&2, but the class averages still remain high. kids are smart and yet social. it incorporates small group learning and students dont spend a lot of time in lecture. hospital facilities are hotel-like & moving towards paperless records. they are building new research facilities and a new first year lecture hall."

"the school was impressive, but at the end of the day i didnt feel that it'd match well with me. i still think its a great place. all the students i met were happy w/the school. " Report Response
