So, I've been reading that the U of A College of Medicine's is a complete joke, but I'm curious as to what you guys/girls think of the school, itself? If I don't get into one of my top 4 or 5 and I do end up getting accepted Arizona, I'd probably go there before anywhere else...

Opinions? Experiences?

Thanks ahead of time!

:cool:

I don't know anything about U of A College of Medicine, but I do think if you get into ANY US medical school, you should attend. From my perspective, it is better than going DO or to a medical school outside the country. Others will probably disagree, but that's my two cents. Good luck!

It is not the best medical school, but it isn't the worst either.

Positives:
-cost
-new curriculum is supposed to be better
-plenty of research opportunities (at both campuses)
-shiny new Phoenix campus (where you will get more personal attention)
-no snow
-CUPs clinic and other volunteer opportunities

Negatives:
-admissions process sucks
-grades (and PBL grading is REALLY subjective)
-no childcare
-new curriculum is still being honed
-faculty is unhappy
