Hi. I am curious to know what some of your thoughts are on USC? Also, do they accept people over the age of 30? Thanks.

Not too worry peterpan; in fact; I was 31 when I got in. As far as the curriculum, as you might know is PBL which means there are no classes, only clinical cases. The curriculum gives you the freedom of spending more time with your significant other, of course if you indeed have wife and children. However, starting 2nd year is hell, brutally, you have cases, sim lab, clinic, boards...It's hell believe me. Good luck to you...

how come they make 1st year so easy compared to the 2nd year? What is the rationale behind that move? Also, can you give me more info on how you're graded? Do they rank students? Is it mostly group learning? So you have to work well in a team?
