What are your general comments?

"Definitely a good school with great faculty. I like PBL a lot and think Western students are going to make really great Vets but it is weird that there is not much lecture material. The area of Pomano is not the "ghetto" that many people say in the feedback. Its a city.. every city has it's seedy areas.. the school is perfectly safe and there is a lot of stores, restaurants, theaters and other places to go in the area. The weather is amazing. I can't imagine feeling depressed/ unhappy during the winter when the weather is sunny and warm." Report Response
