"One the greatest influences on my decision to attend the Carver College of Medicine was the warm and supportive atmosphere created by the faculty and students. Questions and open discussion were encouraged throughout the interview process, and I felt like I was receiving an honest representation of what life is like at the college."

"I chose to attend CCOM (over an in-state, California school, I might add) for the opportunity to do an artistic project through the Humanities Distinction Track, the opportunity to learn from physicians and a varied patient population at the top medical facility in the entire state, and the kindness of just about everyone I met (and continue to meet)."
