The interview was very relaxed and conversational. They definitely read through my file and knew a lot about me. Overall, I think I may have ''overprepared,'' if that can be done. There weren't any ethical questions or any polarizing questions. I think the interviewers just really wanted to get to know me and see if I would fit in the environment. Overall I think I did OK, but I left with some mixed feelings, as I was a little nervous and stuttered a few times." More from this Member | Report Response

No doubt they prepare their students to be excellent physicians. Beyond that, the atmospher was great, the students were awesome, faculty and admissions people were all nice.

The facilities are BRAND new, and everything looks awesome. I think the academic building was built in 2005, but don't quote me on that. I love the fact that they have such awesome technology, and want to prepare students before they go for clinicals. The simulation lab, where they have a huge mannequin that can respond to drugs, has ''blood,'' etc. was awesome, as was the surgical lab where they teach you how to put on surgical wear and how to do simple procedures before you go out for surgery. They really want their students to be prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

They're building a new beautiful building with a huge gym. The housing is affordable. The colors of the school are purple and gold. Their OMT is phenomenal and there are many research opportunities there. After finding out what DO school is all about, I wonder why anyone would ever want to go to MD school."

"Friendliness of current students" More from this Member | Report Response

"It is true that they are VERY friendly on this campus. They really make you feel welcome and take off the competetive between applicants. They also provide you with a free lunch-the food at the cafeteria is really good. They only charge ten dollars for parking a year, and the parking is like 10 feet away from the building. Reasonable tuition for a private school. Good wireless laptops included in tuition. Lots of affordable housing. I didn't find anything that I didn't like. I asked many students if there was one thing they could fix or change about the school, what would it be. A couple said the construction had been kind of a pain-but it will be completed in May, no one else had anything to complain about. The new building is awesome, the old facilites are very nice. Apparently the school has an unparalled OMM program. The workout facilities have a locked door that you can enter by swiping your ID card, and it has many treadmills each has its own cable TV and earphones! Spouses get free membership to the gym-and everyone lets in their boyfriends/girlfriends, without it being a problem. They spend a lot of time explaining their curriculum, student clubs, life in Des Moines-you aren't left feeling like "what is this school environment like?" I left feeling like I would be very comfortable in such a supportive environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Dean himself came and talked to us and answered questions for nearly an hour. The facilities are excellent. The school seems to provide truly excellent support/advising for its students.

"This school has an excellent OMM program, facility, and faculty. Overall, they seem to care about the students. Very informative and answered all questions. **Stay with a student if you can. Aside from saving $ on a hotel room, I could ask any and all questions without any b.s. Oh, and ask your "important questions" to more than one person to get different opinions. Also, the students get a laptop & pda (however, the technology fee of $1,050 is charged for all 4 years). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus has a great OMM program. The facilities are among the best. The people were very midwest, meaning polite and eager to talk and laugh with anyone who will listen. Some students came in and did a demonstration of OMM on a staff member. They mentioned that the second year students choose as a whole class what prep course for the COMLEX 1 boards they want and the university pays for it (600 dollars a head usually). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed to be extremely happy, unlike many schools I've been to. Everyone was laid back and not too stressed out. Also, they used to have a problem with paperwork during residency but that is fixed now because a new person is head of that department. overall it was awesome."

"everything! This school is amazing, admittedly not for the location, but because of the people. Right from the start, a professor who recognized that I was interviewing escorted me up to the admissions office! Everyone, admissions staff, students, faculty, grounds keepers, everyone was soooo friendly. Is this a midwest thing? The interview day was the most organized one I attended. Everything was set up to make us feel welcome and informed. I left feeling like I had made new friends! I also left telling myself that if I got in I'd cancel all my other interviews and go there. This school is definitely well organized with a fast turn around time. The people there really make the school run beautifully. Did I mention they invited all the interviewees to their halloween party?!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm from the Midwest, so I wasn't surprised at the "niceness" of the students. I was, however, surprised that so many had time to take us on tours, eat lunch with us, answer our questions, etc. In general, I loved the comments some of the students made, such as, "I've never regretted choosing DMU." and "I make priorities to enjoy activities outside of school." I was also very impressed by the demonstrations and tours that made me feel like my day was well spent and that they weren't just inviting me solely for an interview. It seemed that they were as interested in my learning about their school as they were in learning about me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seemed to be very technology-oriented. In particular, I was really impressed with the standardized performance assessment labs (SPAL) and Harvey demonstration.

"The students and staff are SUPER nice. Everyone was genuinely interested in me as a person. Many (at least 15) students came up to me and chatted about the school and told me how laid back and non-competitive it is. The facilities are great and getting better. Great anatomy lab! Awesome OMM program. Campus small and everything close by. There were no snobby academic types anywhere!!!! Cool folks" More from this Member | Report Response

Everyone in the Admissions department was terrific. You came away feeling like they would do everything in their power to make sure that you suceeded. They actually bring in companies to help you study for your boards at the end of the second year. The all course of study is student geared." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was well-planned...if a bit redundant. I really didn't need to have researched the school, b/c they went over everything I could have wanted to know throughout the course of the day.

"The Chairman of the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine department gave us a quick brief on the many uses of OMT, very impressive! Stated that MD schools are starting to teach OMT to its students, under the course name of "Bio-Mechanics". Des Moines is a very nice city, extremely clean and progressive, definitely not "Hickville, USA". Would be a great city to raise a family. To choose between UHS-COM and DMU would be difficult. Both boast a 96% COMLEX Part 1 pass rate." More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendly atmosphere and the fact that every student I had contact with (not just those scheduled by the school to meet with us)loved the school. It was very common for students to just stop by and start a conversation with any of the interviewees. I was also impressed by everyone's enthusiasm for the OMM program. The Standardized Performance Assessment Labs were impressive as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't feel like the school had tried to recruit us as students as much as other schools had, although they are a great school so maybe they just don't think they need to. The student body was huge, at least it felt big." More from this Member | Report Response

"They stoic and stern interview where each member of the panel asked fair but difficult questions and then continued to ask "and if that doesnt" work to each question with no emotional feedback from them.

"Nothing, I have nothing negative to say. This is the nicest campus and facilities out of any school I have been to, MD/DO" More from this Member | Report Response

"Its in Iowa. I'm not sure if the rotations are setup well. I think thats why they have invested in the simulation labs because the students have limited real world exposure in Des Moines. They are planning to make 3rd years stick around in Iowa so I really have doubts about the rotations. " More from this Member | Report Response

"difficulty of obtaining competitive residency as d.o." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was the first snow of the year, which made driving conditions extremely not favorable! Also, the 5 to 1 cadaver to student ratio seemed a bit large, but they do say it cuts down on the amount of work per person." More from this Member | Report Response

"The financial aid representative was a bit crabby. Borrowing money is already stressful enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't love cities, so Des Moines is a little big for me. The campus itself is in a very residential area of the city, so it isn't that big of a drawback. I'm pretty much guarenteed to end up in a big city for med school anyway." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty much nothing, the day went kinda long so i was kinda tired by interview time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students I talked to didn't seem very academically serious. I was a bit suprised by this because of all the good stuff the pre-osteos say on SDN. It seemed like everyone (even the faculty) I talked to had an inferiority complex. This is the first DO school I interviewed at, so maybe this is a DO thing in general and not specific to DMU. The students called MDs "Manipulation Deprived" and they all said they got into the University of Iowa but decided on DMU (despite the tens of thousands in extra tuition). I just had a hard time of taking these students seriously. I thought that all I wanted in a school was somewhere where I could become a doctor. Today, I decided that I also want to go to a school with students and faculty who are happy to be at their school and don't have a chip on their shoulder." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish it had been decent weather so I could have walked around outside. Really the only negative and the ONLY reason that would keep me from coming to this school is that its in Iowa.

"The school, students, and curriculum are amazing. The facilities are world class. However, I don't like the fact that i may have to travel to another state or city to do clinical rotations. I still have appehensions about being discriminated as a DO when it comes to residencies." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview group I was placed in was very aggressive. I disliked how one of the interviewers thought he had a license to badger me with various ethnic questions because he was Indian too. Most of the questions asked were designed to probe for weakness rather than learn about any of my positive characteristics. In addition to being high-pressured, the interviewers were rude. There were a few instances of inappropriate laughter. One interviewer made unnecessary comments such as "typical" and "unremarkable" to describe my accomplishments. I have not idea why they felt the need to ask if I was ever bullied as a kid. The interview left me feeling uncomfortable and insulted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview. The whole day was very relaxed with everyone saying how low-stress the interview is. However, my interview seemed like an interrogation, where they asked a question, I answered and then there was an awkward silence.

"The interview was with 4 people around a fairly large table so it was very 'cold' and uninviting. The interviewers also did not segway their questions at all so it felt choppy. The 'observing' student interviewer who was not supposed to ask questions actually asked questions, which wasn't bad (one of the more enjoyable questions), but just be aware that that may happen.

I kept thinking to myself...jeeze I hope not, as applying med student, having got through some tough undergrad courses/ the MCAT...I think I know how to study by now! Also listening to admissions department try and defend class sizes of 215 DO's plus sharing some class's w/ PT's, PA's, etc. I can deal with these class sizes, but it isn't a positive."

"The presentation about student activities were given by the director of student services. I felt that she only gave the positive aspects of student life and not a holisitic appraisal. Plus don't expect much in down town Des Moines--though there are lots of buildings, apparently night life is not as exciting (and this was on a Friday night when I went exploring!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I can't think of a thing. The two drawbacks to the program include the lack of clinical experience in years 1 & 2 and the utilization of almost exclusively lecture/lab teaching methods. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Three on one interview is kinda intimidating. Minimal amount of things to do in the city Orientation went on longer than expected, I barely had time to eat before rushed into my interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing in particular. I'm from the midwest so living in Des Moines doesn't bother me. If you're from LA and love warm weather, this isn't the place for you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing big. Students do generally have to relocate for clinical years, but I already knew that. I haven't actually been to Des Moines yet because the interview was in Portland, so I can't comment on that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location." More from this Member | Report Response

"The length of the day, I wasn't done until after 3pm. I was too tired by the time of my interview, and felt that I did poorly because of this. A morning interview would have been helpful. Also, would have liked to see the anatomy labs, but apparently we weren't "allowed" because we weren't students. I didn't get to meet the dean or president whom I hear so much about." More from this Member | Report Response

"for clinicals, some students will have to leave the Des Moines area." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, it was great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly... not a dang thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview. It was more like a trial. A dark room with a single light above my chair would have almost been a warmer experience. Dry question asked, question answered. Followed by three stoney faces staring back at me and 20-30 seconds of silence. Every question. Absolutely out of sync with the rest of the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"How rude the interviewers were. They were very cold and never smiled. Dr. Crisp told me that I have just floated through life and that everything that has happened to me has just flowed and fallen in line for me; she then said it seems that I have never had any difficulties in life. Before she could further her insults I corrected her and asked her how she knew that? I then continued by telling here that she was dead wrong in her assumptions. She knew nothing about the struggles in my life. I have had plenty and explained a few so she could get the picture. I guess she doesn't know that ASSumption makes you... well look like just that, an ASS. They also acted throughout the interview as if I couldn't handle going to school there. Interesting because they invited me to their campus I didn't invite myself. Finally they asked if I had any questions (which I had plenty all printed out) so I started asking them questions. The Student couldn't answer a basic question that I had asked her so I saved her the embarrassment and moved on. I asked one more and then all of a sudden before I could finish Dr. Crisp cut me off and told me my time was up. They didn't even let me ask all of my very relevant questions!!! Dr. Crispy critter don't ask me if I have questions when you really don't care if I have any! I hate fake people." More from this Member | Report Response

"I accidently ended up in a bar in downtown which was full of drag queens... didnt really negatively impress me but it was a little bit strange. Not quite what I was expecting. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a single thing...you will be surprised if you have the "corn-fields" conception of Iowa. I am going to miss it when I return to MA tomorrow! Well, the DO students do take preclinical classes with the DPMs...but no biggie." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't talk about finances as much as I would have liked." More from this Member | Report Response

"Des Moines is a smaller metropolis, it is up and coming and there are areas of the city that are more up to date than others, but it is still a small city." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area itself. I was not expecting anything like NY or LA but from what I saw there was not enough to offer a life outside of school. I feel that distractions are necessary to help balance studying and maintaining one's sanity. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no tour. We saw none of the school's facilities. But we were constantly told how awesome everything was. Well, if everything is so good then why wasn't it shown to us?" More from this Member | Report Response

"That you may have to travel for your rotations (I have a wife and baby and leaving for weeks at a time does not sound too good)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of MS3 and MS4 students present. The morning Student Services information session dragged on and on and ooon! " More from this Member | Report Response

"It seemed like they were trying to 'sell' the school and Des Moines. Also, what happened to the Director of Admissions I've been talking to for a year. Are they trying to hide something? It was hush hush" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, except some of the other interviewees in our group were gunners... they looked down at everyone else and even the school, just because they thought they were better (heavens knows why some ugly people have to make themselves even uglier by their personalities). Other than that no, nothing about DMU was bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinical staff doesn't seem to be involved in too much research." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is not a school without its weaknesses (the anatomy lab was decent but not on the level of some of the newer labs in the country) and the lecture halls left a little to be desired. 200 students seems a TOO LARGE for my comfort but it might not be so bad. The students repeatedly mentioned that they thought it wasn't a big deal at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Its in Iowa" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Well, the morning is pretty long. At first I thought it would be better tohave the interviews out of the way first, but they provide a lot of info that is useful to you for the interview, such as "why DMU" and "what do you look for in a medical school" and "how do you think you would like life in Des Moines."

"Morning presentations went way over time and people repeated what others had said; they ended up cancelling a couple of presentations that would have been more useful. Would have been good to have more time with students without staff/faculty present. Class is very large. 3rd-year rotations are all over the place." More from this Member | Report Response

"Weather, Very cold and old snow. You don't know where your rotations will be until your send year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction (but it is for the greater good of the campus). The 1st year class is a big multi-purpose room. As for 3rd and 4th years, it seems a bit disorganized. But, I hear it's loads better than what it was a few years back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction and disconnected facilities. Lack of breaks during the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Des Moines, but also the fact that most students have to leave Iowa and go all over the country for 3rd and 4th year training. There are also virtually no clinical facilities that students can go through in their first two years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Des Moines is more of a suburb than a city. There doesn't seem to be much of a night life (not that I'll have time for one) in the city. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction was a little bit annoying, as was the large lecture hall and limited cafeteria. However, there will be a new auditorium when the construction is done after my first year, so that's not too bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition cost, new buildings won't be ready for use when I arrive, unknown aspect of clinical rotations (after 2nd year)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Des Moines is a very small city. Also, the setup for clinical rotations and electives seemed confusing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everybody being too happy, it almost creeped me out. The construction sucks, also!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Traveling clerkships during the third year. If you are willing and able to travel (i.e. single w/ no kids) the clinical years will be AWESOME. You can do anywhere from 6 months up to two years away in places like Texas, Michigan, Ohio, and Florida. For me (wife and kid) being seperated from my family is not an option. There are 6 months during the third year that are up in the air, meaning you MAY have to travel. You have a very good chance of not traveling if you wish, but no guarantees for those six months. The rest of your clinical time can all be done at DMU. Many of the students want to travel so the Des Moines slots are not that hard to come by really. Again, if I were singe the traveling would be a positive instead of a negative " More from this Member | Report Response

"OMM fellows who told us they skipped lecture to study...it just seemed like a bit much to start thinking about skipping lecture when I haven't been accepted to medical school yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"The old buildings. But they are being torn down now." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. Old buildings were being torn down, so that's good. The cafeteria was pretty lame, I think it was a make-shift cafeteria though so hopefully that will be moved. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"A number of things. The student giving my tour talked 100 mph and very softly. It was extremely annoying. Also, the school is undergoing some major renovations. Perhaps in 2 to 3 years it will be a nicer place to go, but not during the time I'd be there. Then, of course, there is the fact that you have to travel around during your 3rd and 4th years for clinicals. Maybe not too hard if you're a swinging single, but I'm not. Another thing was the cost. Estimated budget for year one was $43K! I've already been accepted at another school where the budget was just 29K. Unless you're independantly wealthy or going the military route, a 14K differance will make you blink. Finally, and most importantly, while I was relaxing before my interview a current student (a senior) approached me and vehemently advised me not to go to this school if I had other options. He said they have had big administrative problems over the years and haven't had a permanent dean for quite a while. The clinical dept. (in charge of 3rd and 4th years) was especially disorganized in his opinion. Sorry, but when a senior at the school pleafully tells you to go elsewhere, that's a big red flag!"

"cold temperature and one must move in the 3rd and 4th year" More from this Member | Report Response

"The upper level students who I saw in the library were advising me that the 3rd and 4th years of medical school were a joke. They said that the people in charge of rotations are lazy, irresponsible, and difficult to contact. Several students said thay had paperwork that was lost while they were doing rotations away from Des Moines and the university blames students for the mistakes of the clinical affairs staff. One third year student told me that the staff sends threatening e-mails that threaten to suspend students if they are even a little bit late submitting paperwork. Students also said that the fact that the school has no strong affiliation with a hospital, like allopathic schools do, is a disadvantage as students are left to train in mediocre small facilities."

"I can't think of anything. The older, run-down building is being torn down and a new one built within the year, which will provide a new cafeteria and fitness center (and other things), so I had absolutely no complaints. Great place!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The auditorium for first-year students -- small table-tops attached to individual seats lined up; three overhead screens are strategically (?) placed around the room so everyone is, theoretically, able to see info presented on the screen. Also, there's a 'stinky' auditorium that's also used for first-years with poor ventilation/ circulation - small table tops; seats are attached not free standing as in the other auditorium. Second-years sit in auditoriums/lecture halls that have stadium seating and TV-monitors (though, from what I was told, the TV monitors are used rather infrequently).

"They do provide you with portfolios, so don't bring your own. They have a closet they allow you to use to store all of your stuff during the day. I should have rented a car. I stayed at a hotel near the airport so it was difficult to travel to downtown. I did make it to downtown though and went to the farmers market. I highly suggest exploring downtown if you are not familiar with the area. The Heartland Inn was alright. They provide transportation to the school, free wireless, and discount for interviewees. the facilities aren't that nice and its far from school and downtown (10-15 min driving). But it is $60/night.

"nothing really, i was fairly well prepared for this interview. i would suggest really reading up on the school just to become more familiar with its practices." More from this Member | Report Response

"All day, everyone kept saying how the interview would be very laid-back and low-key. They emphasized how little stress was involved and that admissions committee just wanted to get to know you. Then I got into my interview and they asked some pretty pointed questions. I didn't feel like I needed a blindfold and a cigarette or anything, but don't be lulled into a false sense of security. Interviewers had reviewed my file well and didn't avoid tough questions about my weak areas." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was mainly me talking, and not always conversational" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known how laid back the who interview would be. I was really nervous, but I turned out to be very laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"The final decision of acceptance or rejection is by the dean of admissions, which I never met. I felt that this may be a bit unfair." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had rented a car. My motel was close to the airport, but there was absolutely nothing to do around there. I had to walk about a half mile to eat supper (even though the info DMU sent said there were several restaurants within walking distance)." More from this Member | Report Response

"How low stress the day was going to be. Just relax and be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"No real surprises." More from this Member | Report Response

"No attendence policies and no dress codes. Also, a really short winter break." More from this Member | Report Response

"At first I was turned off by the location, Des Moines is a 3 hour flight from my hometown. Once you get there, however, you will fall in love with the school. If I get accepted here, I am going to cancel the rest of my interviews. Hands down, I felt like I belonged in DMU. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That they were arrogant D.O. Nazi's. I had already been accepted to 5 other D.O. schools (everywhere I applied) and I gave them the same answer if they asked about applying both ways. They all seemed to say that I had a good reason, but DMU didn't seem to like it. I could have saved the money and turned down their interview. Definitely not anywhere near the top of my list now. Almost gave me a bad enough taste to take the MD acceptance and forget the whole DO thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was done by a group (one student, one physician and one professor at the school)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Everything was pretty well predicted." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the heels on loafers you bought for $2 tend to come loose and cause you to fall when walking to the interview room. Oh well, it started the conversation rolling at least. Look into the chronic pain elective...really sounds like an invaluable experience I would be honored to take part in. Also impressed with the surgery course and Harvey/SBLs. Very well done curriculum here at DMUCOM." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there was construction trying to get to the school from my hotel, luckily I left early enough to make it on time, but I had to find my way taking side streets to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would not have bother to come if I knew there would be no tour ahead of time. What is the point of going to a medical school interview if you don't even get to see the labs or classrooms?" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I'd known that we would not be doing a lot of walking outside as I wore pants but carried a skirt to change before the interview. I would have been better off just wearing the skirt." More from this Member | Report Response

"Turnover in administration is high - several deans in the past few years as well as admissions...WHY????" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Everyone had been so open with me the whole process that I pretty much was spoiled with information." More from this Member | Report Response

"Des Moines isn't as rural of a place as one might imagine. It's not a huge city with lots of distractions, but at the same time, there are things to do to get away from the med school frame of mind. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. While the interview was very casual, I think preparing for a more intense experience allowed me to really own the interview and know what I wanted to bring up. Being yourself and coming across as compassionate is key I think." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most peoples' 3rd and 4th year rotations are off-site." More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice they are-and how they make the interview very unstressful, even though its three on one. They don't just stare at you, they talk to each other-when I said I didn't know the answer of understand question-they talked about it in detail and gave some options to choose from. If you do happen to have four interviewers, as I did, be aware that the fourth one is just there to observe for training purposes and makes no judgements and asks no questions. Also, you don't have to wear a black or blue suit. I wore something flowing and flowery and they said "oh we are so glad your not wearing black or blue-we're sick of black and blue- you look very nice."" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt prepared going in to the interview. After having browsed the school's website, nothing was shocking to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"That nontraditional applicants may be scrutinized more rigorously than others, and that a negative decision had apparently been reached before the interview even began. I spent the entire interview defending myself, even though I had a GPA which met their average, an MCAT which exceeded it, and good extracurriculars." More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of Des Moines almost 450,000." More from this Member | Report Response

"How good the school is; knew that their OMM program had a good reputation, but it seems that they are working hard to make the whole school that good. They have a lot of financial aid available." More from this Member | Report Response

"none bc I did lots of research" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had thoroughly researched the school, so I didn't discover anything new, really. The interview day just clarified some things I had questions about. You will get the most out of the day if you come prepared to ask things. They have the financial aid person, student services person, OMM fellows, a biochem professor, Admssions rep, and of course Dr. Teitelbaum (dean of the college) speak with you, and then there is the tour with the students (and lunch), so there are tons of opportunities to ask questions, and from many different perspectives."

What are your general comments?

"This was a great experience and I left the interview/school in such a great mood. I feel like DMU cares about you as a potential student rather than most schools only caring after you are accepted and are paying them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school overall, probably the best DO school when you factor in facilities, atmosphere, student body, cost of living, and match results" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was an open file. However I felt the questions were very generalized which didn't allow for a productive discussion of myself and their school. DMU was my 6th interview this cycle and I had high expectations for the school. Though leaving the interview I was displeased with the environment and experience. All in all, the school is amazing and maybe I was unlucky with the interviewers I received." More from this Member | Report Response
