"I currently attend the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. I am working on a combined degree, both an MD as well as an MPH, or a Masters in Public Health. Overall, I have been very satisfied in the level of my education. UNC School of Medicine has recently changed the curriculum, and I am part of the first class to go through such a curriculum change. The curriculum focuses on allowing students to have more time devoted to 3rd and 4th year of medical school, traditionally the time where you work in the hospital on rotations. The curriculum shortens the first two years of medical school into about 18 months, and you take the first board exam (Step1) a bit earlier, so that you can jump into rotations earlier. This allows you more time during your 4th year of medical school to explore career options or do research. Although the curriculum change did have some bumps in the road (from being the first year with this new curriculum), I am currently between my third and fourth years of medical school and I can honestly say that I love the extra time afforded to us to work in the fields in which we hope to match. UNC offers multiple combined degree programs as well, and with a nationally ranked school of public health right next door, I am taking advantage of this opportunity to get a combined advanced degree. Overall, I think that the curriculum change was a positive one for UNC School of Medicine, and I am hopeful that as the kinks are worked out the transition will be smooth."

"I really love it here at UNCSOM. I think we have a lot of great things as an institution, and we are making strides to increase diversity. As far a transportation, the bus system is great but the parking situation is difficult and there is always construction going on but that and the cost of living are very much Chapel Hill. While there are some really affordable places around Chapel Hill is a college town and I think so places take advantage of that and the cheaper places usually are always occupied. But with that said housing is easy to come by, just be ok to pay for living with some amenities. Coming here for medical school was one of the best decisions I've ever made."

"You cannot find a better deal for an MD than UNC-Chapel Hill. The quality of education combined with the affordable tuition (one of the lowest in the country!) made my decision to enroll a no-brainer. I am now in my last year of school, and I feel blessed every day to have received my medical education at UNC."

"UNC is a fantastic place to learn to be a physician. The administration is constantly looking for students to input from student on how to make our experience better. The classes are hard, as they are at any medical school, but the other students and the faculty make it an overall enjoyable experience."

"I really think that I could not have made a better decision in picking my graduate program. The quality of life for a student is actually pretty great which was a top priority of mine as well as diversity and UNC-CH delivered pretty well on both aspects. The cost of attendance is very affordable for a medical school level."
