What are your general comments?

"Everyone at USC is REALLY into USC. The students really seem to like it, the faculty I spoke to were really enthusiastic. Also the interviews were really laid back which was nice. If you are into primary care or emergency medicine or surgery, this is an awesome place because of all the crazy things you see at County Hospital. It should be pretty sweet when the new hospital is up and running. That said, the school is in a crappy area and students live all over the place so there isnt a really cohesive student body or student life." Report Response
