I'm applying to med school and I'm looking for a school that is not very competitive. I know there's NO such thing as an easy med school and indeed all of them are hard. But it is also true some schools are extremely hard and competitive than others. For instance, in some med schools there's a keen competition among the students and everyone is on their own. They believe " in real world you are on your own" In addition, In these schools if a student fails two classes in two years they kick him out. And I want to avoid these type of schools. On the other hand, in other schools everyone works as a team and help each other to learn. On contrary, they believe " in real world you work as a team with other members of the health team " and the best way to learn is to teach someone else. Although the instructors make sure that the students know what they need to know and they not gonna pass anyone unless the student knows those things that he's required to know. But at the same time the instructors not gonna make the students to learn everything because they believe it would be overwhelming and counter productive. Nor they make the test extremely hard. In addition, they pass out hand outs, provide their old tests, and most of the tests are based on their notes.
