"Nothing, everything was exactly as I had expected." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would have lunch with students, and tour the hospital with one of the students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone has heard the negative publicity about the hospital MLK/Drew, but the truth is that it is not all bad (and is defintely being work on professionally through a consulting company). Some of the residency programs have been unaccredited, but they do not affect Drew students. For example instead of having a surgery clerkship at MLK/Drew, you would go to Harbor-UCLA (another county hosptial affiliated with UCLA). UCLA and Drew are very much connected, and so your resources are just as good as a Geffen Student (if not more). The required research project is not just an essay, but a very involved project. I learned a great deal during my interview and I was really impressed with every aspect of Drew/UCLA." Report Response
