Well I enjoyed this course and it really helped me to get prepared but you better be ready to learn some information. I had a pretty solid foundation on the subjects but this really helped to fill in the gaps and and learn so much more. The sections were organized well with a good flow but the individual lectures were lengthy and packed with information, they could use a little shortening, just to help take it all in. In taking this course I learned a astounding amount of information and I suggest it for everyone how wants to become an expert in premed.
I am considering a post Bachelors degree and this class has really inspired me to look at alternatives to getting into Med School. For the longest time I have been debating how and where I should go to school because I am not your typical med school student. I am a little older than the normal age people go into the field and I was not sure what kind of medicine I wanted to go into but this course has inspired me and lit the fires of motivation and helped me reach outside of the box by giving me options I never knew existed. Thanks Charles! You are pretty amazing and I appreciate you!
I found this class helpful I'm thinking about attending a caribean medical school and I couldn't find any good information on it. I liked the fair treatment instead of everybody telling me dont do it or that its awesome.
