What do you like least about this school?

"Hands down: Administration -The new clinical education director is extremely incompetent--focuses more on enforcing and creating rules rather than creating an environment for maximum learning and growth . Basic sciences dean is hard to work with. He is the type that takes pride in knowing he's a "hardass"-- Class of 2017 attained 100% pass rates before the clinical director came in. Why change something that is already working? Sadly, the administration does not have the well-being of the student in mind. This issue will haunt you throughout your 4 years at Barry."

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"When acute and extreme changes are deemed necessary, a gradual transition plan should be adopted, naturally. The clinical director has been trying from day 1 to make too many changes, too quickly. The administration was forced to step in and tone her down. There is clear miscommunication within the administration itself which undermines the entire foundation of the school. The dean of our school is always very respectful, and has our best interest at heart. That being said, he is also a pushover. If there is consistently a problem throughout all years with specific policies, shouldn't said policies be addressed? It is easier to avoid stepping on toes, but this comes with a dire cost--students well-being. Our clinical education director is extremely rude, and does not understand how to communicate properly. I No school is perfect, but Barry has taken multiple steps backwards with the addition clinical education director to the faculty." Report Response
