Am interested in the experiences of US students currently studying medicine in Germany.

What was your path to the German medical school?
Did you have to attend a studienkolleg or were you admitted directly?
What determined your choice of school?
Many of the schools have large class sizes compared to the US- did that impact your education?
What was the hardest part of your studies (language, culture, etc)?

Any advice or insights?
