    Hey guys,

    Is there a list somewhere of the schools that employ PBL? And also to what extent? I know there are some places that have lecture and PBL, and other schools where it's mostly PBL. Are there any schools where the curriculum is purely PBL?

    Thanks for your help.

    I would remove rochester. seems like they are far more lecture than pbl, although they do have it, it is supplementary.

    I know it's annoying that I'm always blabbing about Drexel, but I think it's important to distinguish that Drexel has one totally PBL curriculum and one curriculum that's mainly lecture-based. (Personally I really don't like PBL, so it's important to me at least :p)

    I think Cornell has one as well

    Rochester has more of an integrative/lecture style.

    Ugh, I didn't realize UCSF was PBL. Now I don't feel so bad about my rejection! :wink:
