    Life on DR


    Someone please comment on what it is like to live and study on DR. What is the cost of living? Rent? Food? Safety? Do we need a car? What type of transportation available for med students?

    What is it like for a family?

    What are the clinicals like? Do you have to do them all on DR?

    Hopefully there is someone who is willing to shed some info.

    Thanks in advance.
