    Hello,

    Just wanted to mention that Mike Smith is an MS1 at CWRU. I've got a link to his web-page in my Links page under the category "Specific Aspects of Medical Admissions" (shameless plug!).

    I just got back from Case about 3 weeks ago! It was wonderful! It's very technologically advanced, and the students are very friendly. I recommend Case to everyone with a friendly attitude!

    Tey even assign you to a pregnant woman or geriatric person (your choice), and you follow their case for your 2 classroom years! Talk about clinical right off the bat!

    And, even better, their class schedule has free afternoons to take extracurriculars, study, and have fun! When you frist show up, you get a laptop with the first two year curriculum on it. Very groovy!

    I'm praying that I will get into their MSTP!
