"The sophmores were out for the day and the freshman had tests, so I did get to ask them many questions. The campus is pretty small and we did not get to see the hospital facilities they had. We got a rough tour to know everything is at. They are working on having access to Vanderbilt's gym and the library. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a laid back day. The faculty and the students are friendly and helpful. They are focused on primary care and not research so they will not have great facilities. They are a small school located in the ghetto area of Nashville. Nashville is all about country music- and if you dont like that and want more cosmopolitan place, then you may need to go somewhere else. We had many interviewees from California for some reason. Its not a bad school. I actually liked it. The good thing is that you hear back from them soon, unlike other schools. Its all about finding the best fit between the student and the school. I would not mind coming for med school here! " Report Response
