The students and faculty were very nice and eager to answer questions. Also, the interview is a partially closed file interview. So, the interviewers only have your employment/volunteer/extracurricular activities information and your essays. It really gives them a chance to get to know you. I thought that lunch was pretty good!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great library, anatomy lab, OMM lab (plus free OMM for students at the on-campus clinic), and new facilities. There is also an excellent lecture note service (professors have their notes delivered to students' mailboxes in advance of their lectures). I was further impressed with their ambulatory rotations and residency match sites. And best of all, your clinical experience begins during the first week of school. Another positive is that their response time is fairly quick. I was notified of my acceptance 2.5 weeks after my interview, and they had told us we would get our letters within 3 weeks. Lastly, I found the students to be very friendly and the school has a laid back, relaxed atmosphere that is more cooperative than competetive (i.e., pass/fail grading system)."

"The facilities are state-of-the-art. When you see the buildings and go inside them, it seems futuristic. I felt I was in the year 3000. The students are extremely happy to be there and are extremely friendly. The faculty there is very friendly as well. There is on-campus housing, which is extremely nice. The student lounges are awesome. There is 24-hour security for on-campus housing. The admissions office staff are so friendly and accomodating. The people in Glendale, AZ are friendly as well. There's a lot of stores in the area. Lecture notes are given to students beforehand, so you don't have to take notes. The curriculum is preceptor-based, which means every 2 weeks, you have patient encounters under a preceptor (physician) supervision. You will receive an excellent medical education and training here. It all depends if this school is for you. The school is so large, in terms of area...AZCOM can expand more if it wants to. Other specialties are taught here like PA. I like an environment that teaches other areas besides DO. It makes the environment fun, like undergrad. STudents help each other. So the learning environ is cooperative, not competitive. Each year, first year students are paired up with a second year (like a Big Brother, Big Sister program). I heard only good things resulting from this. During my interview experience, all AZCOM students said hi and wished us the best of luck. During lunch time, they were playing frisbee and had bean bag contests. Although the cost is expensive (almost $200,000 in 4 years), I can see that they use this money to take care of the student." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were really new and seemed well-equiped. I sat in on an anatomy lab; they had screens surrounding the room where the students could watch what the professor was teaching. The students actually rotate through lab days so you don't have the same group each time and can teach the new members as they come along. Students and staff seemed friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is really nice. I also am very excited about their rotations- more ambulatory than hospital based, basically because you follow a physician specializing in your rotation's emphasis (he/she is your preceptor). I think it would give a med student the opportunity to see private practice in more depth, since you would spend some of your time (though not all) out of the hospitals and in the office. I also like the idea of a one-on-one relationship with the preceptor, which I think would be more personal and allow for me to explore my interests in medicine more thoroughly.

"-I don't like broad, non specific questions because I don't know where to start and where to end. I'm very direct, and prefer to be allowed to answer in a direct way. -There was a young admissions counselor in the interview room who had no experience in basic sciences or a clinical setting. I have nothing negative to say about her as she was very friendly, but it was honestly very distracting to have some young, attractive woman in the room who knew nothing about what I am getting myself into. Please note that I am NOT a sexist in any way shape or form, nor do I have any qualms about being interviewed by a a female. (Mind you, every interview I've had involved a QUALIFIED female from either the basic sciences or clinical department.) I simply a) did not think that a third interviewer was even necessary b) could not relate to someone who doesn't understand what we as future medical students will be going through.

"We didn't learn anything about the school till the last 30 minutes of the day (which is when we spoke with a dean). Most of the us commented during the lunch that we really weren't presented with any information about the school. The tour guided didn't seem to know much. My favorite line was ''This is the clinic. It's where people come to be examined by the doctors.'' Oh really? So you go through 80% of the day not knowing anything. One can only hope the dean's presentation is truly spectacular. Luckily, the presentation was great. Afterwards I felt that I was properly informed on the potential of the school. This is why I can rate the opportunities present as some of the best I've seen.

"The fact that there will be a 100 student increase for next year (probably causing problems in anatomy lab). The fact that we didn't get to interact with students (probably because it was a Monday, exam day, but they still should have been there for lunch at least). Only 1 student came by to talk with us. The fact that the tour was given by an admissions person. The library was very small. Most of the campus is still undergoing construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lecture halls remind me of my cramped undergrad lecture halls (i.e. small wooden piece that folds over chair), itty bitty teeny tiny library, high tuition for the cramped lecture halls and tiny library, your 4 person group shares a cadaver with another group and you alternate days you work with it, the campus isn't completely wireless" More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty was not as friendly as some of the other interviews I have been on. The interviewers seemed to be trying to throw you off rather than getting to know your personality. Another concern I had was the 100 student increase that is going to be taking place next year. It sounded like they were taking steps to compensate for a larger class but from talking to other students, it seemed that 3rd and 4th year students are already struggling for good rotation spots."

The cafeteria at this school is very small and its only open from 7 to 2:30 everyday. There is wireless only in the library. One of the students said that the anatomy lab is not that great at all and it is pretty small so groups actually have to rotate on the cadavers. " More from this Member | Report Response

The wireless internet is restricted to only a few areas of campus, they don't record lectures, the class rooms and lecture hall don't look all that comfortable for the amount of time needed to be spent in them.

I'm a little concerned with the small amount of technology the school has - no laptops in class, etc. However, their board scores are reallllly good, so I suppose it doesn't matter.

"The interview was horrible. From hello is was one ethical question after another. The DO was doing everything in his power to get me to break, but I didn't (yea baby). If you are going to discuss ethical questions such as abortion, death penalty etc, then lets talk about it, don't give me some huge controversial topic and only give me a minute to respond (WTF). Give me a break. The whole thing was rushed and they seemed more interested with the clock than they were with me. I left feeling that they knew nothing about me as a person, and that was lame. The questions were difficult but I just answered them as honestly as possible and think I did just fine. The anatomy lab was not as nice as it could be and the OMM lab is huge (TV’s don't cover the whole area, if you were in the corner things could be interesting), besides our student tour guide didn't have a key to let us in to check it out, so maybe it was better than what I could see through a 4"x20" slit!! The cafeteria wasn't very good at all, horrible food. The work out facility is small. Our student guide was a first-year student (there for only a few weeks) and knew almost nothing about the school. The campus is NOT wireless and didn't seem as technologically advanced as other schools I have visited prior. The dean bragged about how the school did vs. MD schools even though his own 2 sons attended MD schools (why not DO?? Why not AZCOM???). It makes the decision even more difficult for those who are deciding between an MD or DO. It was only 105 when I was there and was told it was a "cooler day". WOW!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"I am very interested in the DO philosophy and was dissappointed that they don't really consider themselves much different than MD schools except for maybe the OMM work. I expected that a DO school would believe in their own philosophy more so than what was demonstrated to me during the interview day. If you don't really care about DO or MD but really want to go to medical school, then this school would be great for you. I also heard a lot of swearing amoung the students and if you're a conservative, religiously-minded person like myself, then this might not be the greatest atmosphere for you since immodesty seems to be the norm and not the exception. I also wanted to bring my wife to the interview day (everything except for the actual interview), which some schools really encourage candidates to do (like Kirksville), but they discouraged me. If I decide to go there, it will take a lot of convincing for my wife since they gave her the shaft. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No gym. No computers needed, which I like because I'm not a computer geek, but it was wierd because every other school makes you get a laptop. I didn't really like the curriculum setup but hey who am I to say anything their numbers speak for themselves. the cadaver lab smelled bad. It was not very nice at all. It was the worse one and the most crowded out of any school I went to. The heat would suck in the summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was asked some offensive and hostile questions during my interview. At one point, the med student asked if I was appling to Do school becasue I thougt it was easy. The DO who was on the interview panel asked if she thought people would listen to me as a doctor becasue I'm overweight. When I told her that I'm currently on a swimming schollarship, she said she didn't beleive me. Nothing like being called a lier in an interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

First of all, it's in Phoenix, to top it off it's in Glendale. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather was really hot. I will echo others sentiments on the third and fourth year rotations; shady is the appropriate word. The school was trying hard to sell us on the benefits of its preceptorship. The lady in charge of setting up the rotations sounded as if she was compensating for lacking "normal" rotations like most other schools have. It sounded very unstructured and disorganized. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost to attend this school much like any private school is astronomical. I am not sure how I feel about the openess of the clinical years, I think I would prefer something more structured. Also, we were told that the interview would be closed file and that the nterviewers would not have our grades or anything. Hence, I was a little suprised when one of them looked at a sheet w my scores on them and asked me about an MCAT score. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much! The financial aid presentation is a waste of an hour. The tour was less than spectacular as well. I can walk around the entire campus on my own time. I can figure out what a class room looks like. The tour guide didn't provide inside information about the school unless propped. The interview process was long. The actual interview was only 30 minutes but you wait around a lot and waste 2 hours with the financial aid presentation and the tour. The clinical years are clearly a disadvantage of the school despite the rhetoric they provide about the preceptorship. And the clinical director did get defensive when explaining the rotations. If you want to do hospital based rotations, you won't be able to do them in AZ during your third year. You are required to do 5 of your 11 rotations in of the assigned preceptor rotations spots in AZ. You can do up to 6 hospital based (traditional/non-preceptor based) rotations during your third year, but these are located out of state for the most part. Fourth year is awesome. You can hospital and preceptor based rotations locally without a problem. " More from this Member | Report Response

I believe they are currently building a cafeteria, however, and it will be opening in the Spring of 2004." More from this Member | Report Response

Needless to say, upon completion of the tour I sat for 2.5 hours waiting for my interview slot to come up. They should have had a presentation by the faculty on how the curriculum and rotations are set up. In addition, I really wasn't that impressed with the facilities. The library is about medium size compared to some of the other schools I visited. The anatomy lab was also a bit cramped considering at each table there will be three or more people.

The weather is hot, but what do you expect? During 3rd & 4th year, might not be able to be near AZCOM. You might have to go to other cities in AZ or other states.

"Compared to some of my other interviews, the students didn't seem as unified/feel undying love for their school.

"Not much about the ciruculum" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not feel like I was given enough opportunities to talk with current students throughout the day. The staff did not seem to be connected with the students. You have to go off campus to use an exercise facility which seems strange when the osteopathic philosophy is supposed to promote wellness." More from this Member | Report Response

"I realized that this school is really expensive and that nobody is here by choice. Meaning, it seems that EVERYONE here is here because this is the ONLY place they got in. I got in other schools, and I think I was the only one (especially the only one who got in an MD program). This place is really expensive for what it is." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff seemed out of touch with students. Its is VERY hot. They didn't do any sort of presentation about the curriculum or how the school is set-up." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location seems to be not have any social spots to hang out." More from this Member | Report Response

"1) If you rent a car, go with their discount....Enterprise didn't appear to be open so I went with National when I got to the airport. $257 for a 3 day rental of smallest class!! Still worth the cost...best way to get a feel for the area is driving out and checking out the locals. 2) They had more student interaction than other reviewers had said. 2 students gave the tour and a 3rd stopped in during our wait. A 4th sat with us at lunch. Mostly OMSI and 1 OMSII I think. That was better than PCOM, NSUCOM, LECOM-Erie, and LECOM-Brad. Less than DMU." More from this Member | Report Response

"AZCOM is going to increase the class size by roughly 100 people next year (yikes!). Also, that you get driven around in a golf cart during the tour (so don't worry too much about your feet hurting)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It would have been nice to know the type of interview I was about to receive but I believe that your interview experience is something difficult to predict since a lot of it really just depends on who you happen to interview with that day and the kind of personality and attitude they have.

"They say it is closed file, but they have everything from your application except for your MCAT scores and your GPA. For the guys, if you have a light colored suit, wear it.

"On the school website, they mention problem based learning in their curriculum. When I asked about it during my interview, they didn't know what I was talking about. They don't really use PBL in their curriculum--they really meant discussion groups in some of their classes." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school leaves alot to be desired. (clinical rotations and preceptorships). The school was really trying to sell us on the benefits of their preceptorships. Someone in charge of setting up the rotations/preceptorships sounded as if they knew the school was weak in this area. The reps persuasion was very counterproductive as I and others saw through it."

"How poor the rotations are. I wouldn't have wasted my time or money." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is really far from the city of Phoenix. It is in Glendale which is homely suburb in the Northwest corner of the city. The location isn't bad but when I think of Phoenix, I'm thinking of a large city. And the location reminded me of a nice suburb in a small town or city in a state like Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma or Nebraska." More from this Member | Report Response

"How drawn to the school I would be. I am fro mthe east coast and did not think the west coast would appeal to me. After visiting the school it is one of my top choices." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinical training is very unique here at AZCOM. In addition to traditional training at hospitals, you deal at least 50% of your rotations with a clinical preceptor in a more outpatient based setting. This is a chance to get a lot of one-on-one training. You also have a test every Monday, which can be a bit tedious." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition increases 3-6% every year while enrolled. In mid-October the temperature was still in the mid-nineties. " More from this Member | Report Response

"In mid October it can still reach 100. I also wish I had know my flight would take six hours. In addition I wish I would have known I'd miss my connecting flight to Phoenix in the first place so I wouldn't have to sprint all the way accross Newark's airport only to be told I'll be put on the next flight 2 hours later (but I did get a free meal out of it)."

"Almost every week, there is something happening during lunch time, such as osteopathic week where food is served at a very cheap price, students are so close to each other, students are not restricted to a dress code (shorts!). so much candy (m & m) on tables in the waiting room in the admissions office, OMM & anatomy labs had i think so much 42 inch flat screen tvs (unbelievable!) students are given id cards to enter rooms" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm concerned about the ambulatory based preceptorship model of clinical rotations... would I get much of a hospital rotation? They said you can get one but it was very vague. There is also a large focus on family medicine when you look at the 3rd year of rotations and that is not my focus. So I'm worried this would affect the type of residency I match into." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Pheonix has two sets of numbered streets (avenues and streets). So there is a 51rst AVE and a 51rst ST. I learned this the hard way when my shuttle (at midnight due to flight delays) took me to the wrong (and way more expensive) Best Western on 51rst St, which was an hour and a half from the school. Yikes!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the airport was 30-40 minutes away but it was quite easy to get around phoenix. There is no grass and no trees but the scenery is awesome. Lots of mountains around and its a great town for culture and sports. It was mid october and the temp on our interview day was 96 degrees. WOW. Also, they interviewed 18 people on my day which seemed like a lot compared to the other schools but it was neat to meet so many people in the same boat. OH!!! The biggest thing I can add is that the interviews were really short. 30 minutes and they keep to this quite closely. I had a very quick interview and I wished it was longer. I think they got a good idea of me but I still had a little doubt in it. I was the last of 6 interviews for them that day so they seemed a little tired." More from this Member | Report Response

"Probably the biggest thing was that the head of admissions told us that they ACCEPT 300-350 students out of 500 interviews to fill 140 spots (they just play the numbers). If you have an interview, your chances are better than originally thought! Also, the Glendale area is beautiful!
