12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • Different system took some getting used to. USMLE material covered, but not in same format (ie no MCQ tests). Some subjective issues and some luck involved in grades. Language. Freaking cold and far from home.
  • They do not really tell you what you have to learn for a test, so you will always learn the wrong stuff and then it is for about 90% of the students just about cheating, learning of old tests (tests don't change, questions in most subjects are 100% the same) or being a good looking woman (will help for different exams a lot, like in Physics) in order to pass.
  • Individual departments don't coordinate AT ALL. Lack of information about what is going on (be it in a class or in administratively) for students, you must rely on word of mouth and a bit of luck to get by. A lot is assumed by the teachers, the don't explain things thoroughly yet expect you to know exactly what to do and how to do it (my Microbiology practical comes to mind). No handholding; you have to be detremined, resourceful, and resilient (Americans beware).

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • Given the choice to attend a better name school or Charles, I personally now would pick Charles. I obtained everything I wanted and more. But, this school is certainly only a fit for the right student. Self motivated. Patient. Open minded. Independant, organized hard worker. If you can adjust, it can be a wonderful time. If you don't adjust, you will hate it.
  • Overall I love my school, warts and all. I'm proud to study here & I'll be even prouder when I graduate & have my CU 1st Faculty diploma.
