What impressed you positively?

"Video recorded lectures, in addition to podcasts, integrated systems curriculum was interesting, housing would be cheap, hospital directly tied to school building plus updated ER. Standardized patient rooms were all cool. Lots of pros to Shreveport, you just gotta go to see." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Facilities were good for what they were, but the " newly renovated" lecture halls really paled in comparison to other places, lack of study space (i.e. seemed like many students didn't stay on campus to study), parking sucks... students said you park a few blocks away and ride a shuttle to campus."

"That I could have pimped a bowtie like Dr. Kennedy." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Shreveport is nice. Very different approach to medical school. To me the biggest difference (that matters) between New Orleans and Shreveport is the curriculum (more traditional vs. systems-based) and which system you'd learn better in. Both have clinical simulations, Shreveport has the better recordings and such for learning, New Orleans has a newer facilities. How much time would you actually be able to party? Both have bars in the city, so Shreveport isn't devoid of a nightlife. Shreveport is cheaper as well. So, in the end, it's better just to see both and make the judgment for yourself. As far as interviews, it's pretty relaxing. Though they say they are closed file, I had a feeling like they may have read the file anyway, but portrayed that they haven't. The first interviewer I had tried to play bad guy and asked ethical questions that were made not to really have a good answer, but lightened up at the end and we talked about stuff. Dr. Kennedy just flipped through your file and asked a couple of questions. Last interviewer was relaxing and we just talked about all kinds of stuff, so that was enjoyable." Report Response
