What impressed you positively?

"we toured the clinic well before lunch and the place was hopping. there were tons of patients, enough to fill the 3 waiting rooms through which we passed. the faculty seemed very devoted to excellence, but they were not distanced from the students. almost everyone gets residency after 12 months, when asked about drop-out rates and such numerous people independently of each other said essentially unless you decide to drop out, you will have to actively work very hard to not graduate." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the clinic seemed old and dungy. low celings, boring walls, oddly placed lockers. i can also see how people would get the notion that the peolpe here are operate on the assumption that they are better than other schools. i however got no such impression. it seemed to me like they demand alot, but are willing to do all it takes to help you accomplish and achieve it. this is my idea of a good, strong education system. others may disagree." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"i did quite a bit of research, so i was pretty prepared. my interview was, however, very professional but not in a way to back me into a corner (as i've read they've been for other students). i went in feeling very stressed, and i walked out wondering why my experience was so different from others'." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"great place. don't go here if you're not willing to get your butt kicked for 2 years. it seems like you'll bennefit grately from it if you can, however. my general impression is that the clinical years here are not as difficult as the academic, but i doubt they are defficient clinically. the actual walls are just old."
