What are your general comments?

"Unlike previous comments, we were taken to the clinics in the morning and they were packed - no lack of patients at all. Also, Dr. T was very welcoming although clear about the type of student UCONN is looking for. The students there seemed happy, but all warned that first year is very difficult. But its P/F so it takes out a lot of competition. Once a week they have a 4 hour PBL (problem based learning) session, which works for some and not others. The interviewers were not the friendliest people in the world, but they were very nice. Overall I was impressed and it moved from low on my list to high." Report Response
