What impressed you positively?

"I really expected to love Vanderbilt based on all the good things I've heard about it, but nothing about the school really impressed me. I've filled out a bunch of these already (seven) and this is the only one I'm giving a negative impression to. Everyone was nice during the day, but a lot of the med students giving us tours were bent up on criticizing other schools. It gave the impression that they were insecure about the quality of their school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students spend so much of their time in lecture, few small-groups, even though the med school is integrated with the rest of campus, the whole school just didn't seem lively at all. All the first year classes are in one lecture hall and the lecture I attended was a lot worse than ones I've been to at other schools. " Report Response
