What do you like least about this school?

"Everything, except the weather. After 3 years of school here I think it is safe to say that the education here is on par with a below average community college. Yeah, there are a couple good professors, but 80% of them are inept and cannot articulate the material in manner which is conducive to learning. Barry used to be known for its "clinical education", but even that is at risk now with the new clinical coordinator. She is unorganized, dictator-like, and irrational. In almost every one of our class meetings with her she will tell us one thing, and then does the exact opposite. Just thinking about her infuriates me because she knows how to sweet talk the dean into making him think she is doing a good job. In an attempt to make this review relatively short, I won't go into any specifics. You might think I'm just a grumpy student that got bad grades and am just here ranting. I wish that was the case. I'm a pretty mellow guy and in most cases I would care less about any drama going on with the faculty, but Barry has gotten out of control. I think its only fair to any potential students to know what they are getting into. Just to be clear, I don't want to throw everyone associated with Barry under the bus. There are some good faculty members, but they are few and far between. If you ask me, Barry is heading in the wrong direction, and fast. If you interview here they will try to make themselves look good by saying they have great pass rates for boards part one and for matching for residency. But don't be fooled, this is not because the school prepares us well, it's because we study on our own. Good luck to anyone researching the options for podiatry school. The field of podiatry is great and is growing fast with the increase prevalence of diabetes. Regardless of which school you attend, you have to put in a lot of time to make sure you know the material, so be prepared to give up a lot of your personal time." Report Response
