What impressed you positively?

"The sense of comradery that exists and is encouraged amongst Drew students. And, being from southern california, I was very excited about the first two years being at UCLA med." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that you are forced to do your clinicals at Drew. The hospital has a very negative reputation in this state (not sure of others). Aside from the troubles its been having, the clinical training staff are not very highly regarded which is a HUGE concern since they would be the ones writing my LORs for residencies." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I'd already been accepted to a better med school so that I could have forgone the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My impressions of the school were mixed because I so badly want to stay in state for med school. If I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to practice general medicine in an underserved community full-time, this would be my dream school. However, after all that I've endured to attend med school, I wouldn't feel comfortable closing doors to the possibilities of pursuing competitive specialities. Great school for what I envision myself doing but could be a shot in the foot should my goals change." Report Response
