What impressed you negatively?

"As compared to other schools, students didn't seem as close-knit. Also, students take their boards after the first year as opposed to after the second year unlike most other schools which could be a negative. Students do not have their own chairs in the operatories due to larger class size (130). Also, it was made clear that residency is not granted easily to out of state students which means higher tuition all four years." Report Response
