    THE GOOD ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY

    For the Prestige, and the good education of an Ivy League institution as well as higher chances of getting into a good medical school later on in life. They also gave me a fairly good financial aid package.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It's pretty rigorous and I think challenging. In one way I am glad I chose to attend this school but my mental health has not improved. Additionally, I like the open curriculum because it allows me to take classes that I'm actually interested in.
