What are your general comments?

"Despite how everyone says the campus is small, the neighborhood is not safe, and there's a train that passes behind the campus ALL the time (yes, our projector was shaking when the train went by and the faculty member was assuring us it was not an earthquake!), I still really LOVED the school. Their unique PBL learning is a wonderful thing (not for everybody, though), and I feel like this school really wants to get to know who you are. They are not out to trick you or make you look stupid. This school is also in a great location because 45 minutes to and hour in any direction will get you to so many different places (deserts, forests, the beach, etc) where you can do large animal, small animal, farm, marine, zoo, wildlife. They have so many resources! Also you get a lot of clinical experience in your first two years, unlike most other schools." Report Response
