What do you like least about this school?

"third year grading system is problematic. The school operates on a 20% honors, 30% High Pass and 50% pass and the grades are almost entirely based on evaluations (some clerkships consider SHELF to be worth 20% but all require passing this exam). Since evaluations are highly subjective and entirely dependent on who is evaluating you, the grading system is neither accurate nor precise which means that you can get unlucky even if you are attractive and charming. You may find that comparable institutions (Brown, Boston, Dartmouth, Tufts, etc) do much better in the match." Report Response
