The school I know with the reputation of having the unhappiest students is great in all these aspects. Unless you are advocating ignoring happyness, I'd say to focus on the happyness of the studnets .Originally posted by meanderson
I'd focus more on location, finances, reputation, etc.
Gee, which school is that?Originally posted by Jalby

I couldn't disagree more. Yes, you have to learn the same information during the first two years at pretty much any school you choose (hence they may use similar review books or whatever) but the matter in which it is presented to you can significantly affect the ease with which you learn it and just how happy you are with your first two years of medical school. I think finding a match between a school's curriculum and your own learning style is going to make you a happier medical student, and therefore a more successful one.Originally posted by meanderson
I wouldn't let the cirriculum the first two years play a large role in my decision. The first two years are the first two years.
Drew's first two year's at UCLA, and UCLA's P/F...so I guess you're going to Case Western huh, Ohio boy?Originally posted by exmike
h/p/f for me please. anything more is essentially ABCF, anything less is pure pass fail.
ABCF = too much competition
P/F = too little motivation
