Charleston (WV) Gazette editorial
All three of West Virginia’s taxpayer-supported medical schools drew low grades because they let pharmaceutical agents woo doctor trainees and interns, to persuade the future physicians to prescribe high-cost drug brands touted by the agents.
Both West Virginia University and Marshall University got “F” rankings in a study by the American Medical Student Association. The West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine at Lewisburg got a “D.”

And, if I were a betting man, totally inaccurate.
