"The school is new, class 2011 will be the first class. They have the 3rd and 4th year clinicals already lined up." More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice everyone in the school is. They all tried to make you feel at home." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is beautiful, but most of all everyone that works there is so into the school, and so excited about it. It really impresses me when the faculty and staff love it so much. Low cost of living in a gorgeous area." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is so so nice and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice and enthusiastic everybody was, including the faculty. While LMU may be in a rural area, it is actually very beautiful. I loved the architecture of the buildings within the university which was a brick, southern type of style. I loved all the outdoor activities that the area offers and the fact that there is no crime (the police force is all of 1 person). I was impressed by how tech the school will be and how much technology that the faculty/university is incorporating into it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is going to be so awesome. It will have some of the best tech. and the best facilities offered to med students in the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"the Facility is going to be state of the art, probably the nicest in the country" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although the building is under construction, the presenation given showed that it would be state of the art with a lot of modern technology. They also realized that they had to plan for accomodations for their students (as the town is small), and are buiding medical student housing (one-two bedroom apartments). If you wish you can stay there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The plans for the new facility were first class. The faculty were enthusiastic and passionate about the school. The med school has great financial backing and they are committed to a hi-tech program." More from this Member | Report Response

"They have thought of everything including adding a lot of new housing for incoming students. Also, Jody went through everyones file with them to make sure they were complete." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of food delivery in surrounding area" More from this Member | Report Response

"the faculty seemed unapproachable" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"No negatives" More from this Member | Report Response

"There was nothing negative about this school unless you absolutely hate rural areas. The campus is gorgeous." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town amenities" More from this Member | Report Response

"The med students have to share space with other schools (nursing and PA), so we couldn't see all the facilities because they were in use. The school was much more expensive than I initially thought it would be based on the cursory info online." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers focused on questions which, even after the interview when there's no stress or pressure, I can't figure out if there was a right or wrong answer. I feel like the interview did not provide the admissions committee as accurate of a picture of me as I hoped they would have gotten; I feel like the interview did not really focus on my potential as a future physician or student. And for the questions about me, and not about my opinions, I wish there would have been at least some structure and less vagueness. I felt I was unable to discuss all the good things about me, and felt like the conversation tended to focus on my weaknesses (but perhaps this is their strategy- seeing how you react to stress and how you handle unideal situations!) Lastly, with regards to the actual campus, the SIM lab was small and didn't seem updated." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like they should've asked more informative questions during my interview. I felt like they didn't get to know 'me' as well as I would've liked." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the students giving the tour of campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The rural surroundings will be an adjustment" More from this Member | Report Response

"How rural the school is" More from this Member | Report Response

"Strictly location related: No liquor sold for an hours drive. Beer only in Harrogate and Middelsboro is completely DRY!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only thing (and it might be a dealbreaker for some like it was for me) is the location. It's physically beautiful, but culturally, there's not really much going on." More from this Member | Report Response

"The on campus "apartments" for medical students." More from this Member | Report Response

"HOW rural the location is." More from this Member | Report Response

"While location is beautiful and I think it will be a good place to learn, not so sure about job opportunities for my girlfriend." More from this Member | Report Response

"Housing, especially for married couples. There just aren't a lot of places to live, and certainly aren't a lot of places to eat. The pro is that there are no distractions; the bad news is as a medical student, you sometimes need distractions." More from this Member | Report Response

"The quality of student housing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab was a little small compared to some of the other schools I applied to, but with the construction of the new building, the lab is supposed to be much bigger." More from this Member | Report Response

"university apartments for the med students were ok, but were not outstanding like everything else" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is very rural. Despite what they say about it being a "good place to study" or whatever, its in the middle of nowhere and that would make it hard for me to visit my family." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location. Knoxville is gross (I had to fly in there), and Middlesboro, KY is hideous. The people all look the same (fat and white, sorry!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of hotels in the area" More from this Member | Report Response

"how very rural it is." More from this Member | Report Response

"No one seemed really excited about being a part of the school itself. They liked the technology, but nothing else." More from this Member | Report Response

"the location is in the middle of nowhere but that could be a good thing for some people because of less distractions (it's also very beautiful)!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school hasn't released their board scores so no one but the Dean knows how the students that have taken COMLEX have done." More from this Member | Report Response

"Of course adjusting to not having everything at my fingertips would be rough, but the lack of distraction might help. Also, study areas are somewhat limited." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town is small but I am a local so I know there is a lot more to do than meets the eye. Dont let the rural setting discourage you." More from this Member | Report Response

"The distance the school is from the airport. 1.5 hours avg." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like more food options aside from subway...but I could live on it I guess. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. But, I could see how the location could be an issue for some. For me though, the location is great as I would rather live in a small town or rural area than a large city." More from this Member | Report Response

"It might be difficult for your spouse to get a job in the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wouldnt say the location impressed me negatively, but it does leave a little to be desired" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, the campus was beautiful and remarkably modern." More from this Member | Report Response

"surrounding area is poor. a lot of all you can eat buffet restaurants and fast food places. barely any healthy restaurants. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The only drawback for me was the location. There was little there to do for my wife and daughter. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It takes the whole day to get to the school. Not much cultural diversity with the student population." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of student center with fitness facility." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the very first question I was asked during my interview was if I went to the Oasis pizza party or not. Just seemed inappropriate since we were told several times that the party had no bearing on whether or not we get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. I interviewed on a cold, rainy day, so that wasn't too pleasant. But other than that I was thoroughly impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"absolutely nothing..... honestly" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a single thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing comes to mind." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, not much. I'd visited the school 2x before interviewing so I knew and loved a lot about the school. The lunch in the undergrad cafeteria was kind of bad, ha." More from this Member | Report Response

"The remoteness of the location is advantageous for a busy student without much tolerance for distraction. When the time comes around to take a break, unless you like the outdoors a lot, there is just not much to do. At the same time, this remoteness does promote a very tight (close) student body." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very little to do in Harrogate." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is low stress, but the interviewers seem to be in the dark about future developments of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"no job market for my significant other" More from this Member | Report Response

"location, and although the facilities were nice/new, they were very limited (for me). Everything is housed in one, medium-sized building. Also, I think there were only 4 (can't remember the exact number) cadavers for the entire class!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How it seemed like working so hard in undergraduate work outside of school (job, and volunteer work) was a downfall. I'm just motivated to achieve what I was not able to previously." More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy lab was VERY small (eight tanks for the entire class). Plastic models were utilized for study and students mentioned that it was advantageous to have fewer cadavers for testing. The students would rotate through the 8 or so tanks somehow." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location. I was prepared, so it was not a surprise. Sort of felt like one of my interviewers was launching a personal attack with some questions, but as he walked me back, he told me he'd tried to see how I responded to pressure, and that I'd done well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing! Some people were complaining about the area, but I grew up in a small, southern city, so it wasn't that shocking to me. Everything you could possibly need is 1 hour away in Knoxville with regards to shopping, entertainment, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all very rural but locals are very friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location is terrible and culturally dead if you're used to a more urban lifestyle" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really negatively impressed me. My only concern is that its a new school without an alumni network, and that the rotations haven't really been tested out yet. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Harrogate, TN is in the middle of nowhere so there is nothing to do for cultural activities (except maybe hiking in the Cumberland Gap State Park). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The University apartments- they are the size of a hotel room with no separation between the kitchen, bed and desk, also they are REALLY expensive...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lunch wasn't too impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not necessarily a part of the interview but the email sent out said there would be a meeting a pizza place the night before with some current students. I went to this but no current students showed up." More from this Member | Report Response

"I can truly say that nothing negatively impressed me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The biggest thing was the small amount of housing available for the med school students, but more apartment buildings are being built that should be done by next August. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There was truly not a single negative." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel a little apprehensive about whether there will be enough study space." More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab was very small for the number of students they have" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I expected the area to be much more middle-of-nowhere-like. Although the area isn't exactly a bustling metropolis, there was a good amount of shopping, restaurants, and a movie theater. Dry county though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very very rural location." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location was a huge negative. The admissions staff also created a false low stress environment. The stress was actually pretty high. They tricked you into thinking they were laid back, but they were actually fairly picky." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no explination of the building -the main medical school building." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not really anything except maybe its a bit of a rural area but it is a stunningly beautiful area." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff seemed to pick ''favorites'' of the interviewees during the lunch at the cafeteria, which I thought was inappropriate and discouraging probably to the other applicants. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very small town. Grade school and I believe highschool on same campus. Not to happy eatting lunch with 11 yr olds. Dry county due to ultra religous area." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING AT ALL!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The flight cancellations and how far the campus is from the airport." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just that I would not be able to do the National Health Service Corps scholarship through LMU since they are still on provisional accreditation with AOA COCA" More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of delays flying into Knoxville. Therefore, had to drive to Harrogate late at night. But, that is nobody's fault." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wouldn't call it negative, but it would be nice if the school was about 30 minutes closer to Knoxville." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just how rural the town was- Middlesboro, KY is a dry county. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nabout arone, really. However, if you're not into a rural setting, this may not be for you, as it's just about as rural as it comes. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is VERY rural. Driving around that area could get very difficult. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer (a DO) was a bit curt." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area was a little desolate, but could be good for studying though" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. At first the area did, but then it kind of grows on you. There's tons of outdoor stuff to do and there's a national state park right next to you. It's good for me because I like nature. And there's LOTS of nature around you. Oh, the bad part was that the location is so far from the airport." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised by how rural the area is, coming from a large coastal city" More from this Member | Report Response

"The plan for Gross Anat. is for 7-9 students per cadavor, with 2 doing the cutting and them showing the others. The 2 people rotate for each session but.." More from this Member | Report Response

"There's a group student-led interview before the one-on-one actual prof-led interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known the schedule, like knowing that the interview was first thing in the morning. I also wish I had studied the school more beforehand, because without seeing the campus I was unable to ask my questions to the interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they had students asking you questions before your actual interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt pretty well prepared by the SDN feedback. It is very accurate." More from this Member | Report Response

"That everyone was so nice at this school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would hate the location. Also there are plenty of hotels/motels/bed and breakfasts to stay in besides the Holiday Inn.

"I was accepted and am attending this school over another very old, well established DO school.... wasnt expecting to like the school but was blown away when I visited!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Harrogate is rural... there is only 1 hotel and a few restaurants and a rundown mall. Not exactly a happening place, but I guess you don't have to worry about distractions when you're studying." More from this Member | Report Response

"You can take someone with you, just not to the actual interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a lot of contact with DCOM students and faculty prior to the interview. Many of the students are opened to questions and I would suggest looking them up. I felt very well prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back the interview truly would be. You can really relax and be yourself. There was absolutely no need to be nervous." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hotel I stayed at had a really bad smell for some reason. I even noticed the smell on my interview clothes after I left the hotel. Hopefully I'm the only one that could smell it on my clothes. Anyway, the hotel was ok, but the smell would be enough for me not to recommend it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"We did not have time to ask questions after the interview. You need to ask your questions before the interview. Last questions was: We are running out of time, so Is there anything else you want us to know?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to be so nervous. It was my first interview and I was super nervous. Just try to be calm and be yourself. I was fortunate to be accepted and I am glad that my nerves didnt blow it for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"How low-key it would be and the fact that they see the interview as a way to get to know you personally. Once they've extended you an interview you've already passed all the statistical requirements and they know academically you could suceed, now its all about personality... so be yourself and dont worry- itll go great!"

"That there would be a clinic built on campus in the near future as well as a new fitness center. Not sure I care about knowing it ahead of time, but it was awesome to learn while I was there. I also couldn't have imagined how much I would love the setting of the school. I love that area, but even my imagination had not done it justice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish I had known others' plans for travel, as car-pooling from airport would have been ideal. Also, there were several other interviews being conducted that day (13 total). The company was good, but if you're not expecting that, could be a little intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

Also, look in the forums to see who else is interviewing with you that day. Ya'll could split the rental car. I wish I had done that because we had 3 of us pretty much just following each other to and from the airport and the school. Could have saved money there and also had some company for the drive."

"It's a decent school and is very welcoming overall. It was very thorough in its planning of interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"This campus is definitely unique; it's a small-community-feel, but actually one of the largest classes offered for medical school. The area is extremely rural, and they focus a lot on that area of medicine. At the end of the day, I feel like my interview did not reflect me well as a potential medical student/professional, but the campus was nice. Lastly, something I thought was a little different was that at LMU-DCOM, you do not receive your white coat until your second year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The LMU community have a great energy and it allows for a low stress day" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a fun interview day. Very low key, no need to stress. I would even argue there's no need to prepare, as long as you know why you're there (which you should obviously). My advice is don't be stressed, don't worry about preparation and actually go out and enjoy the surrounding area and campus day before your interview. I barely prepared and feel that I crushed the interview. Good luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dont be intimidated by the rural setting! If you've lived in metropolitan areas your whole life, look at it is a way to learn about a new population and lifestyle. Also Knoxville isn't far if you do find yourself craving the city life." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was really relaxed and stress free. Bob (the tour guide) was just great. He not only gave us a wonderful tour but was a pleasure to talk with. I had the pleasure of being able to speak with him after all of the other applicants were dropped off, and he is just a wonderfully nice and helpful person. I am a nontrad and would much prefer to live in a small town; so I just loved the area and will go to DCOM if accepted. However, I could see the location being an issue for some students, as there really is not much around the school. But, if you don't feel the lack of city life will bother you then I would highly recommend at least visiting the school. On a side note--the interviews are actually only 30 minutes. Mine just ran a tad long. " More from this Member | Report Response

"After a week I got the call from Dr. Stowers that I got accepted, and this is where I am going. I am very excited. if you get an interview, go because there are a lot of info you do not find it on their website or SDN (international rotation sites, future hospital building, own laptop, how faculty works together with students, many faculty include previous deans in other schools (eX:rocky vista), school has a lot of money,due to lot of money great opportunities for students,open to your ideas if you want to do something they help you do it, Kaplan course before the Boards,mission trips, REM, and many more). It might be rural, but cheap to live here,great view, and no traffic. Great experience. I believe this school has a great future, and it easily could be among the most popular schools in a couple of years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bob the tour guide lived up to his SDN reputation. He says he's only been in the area since 2003 or so but he knew everything about the area, and every student we encountered, he knew by name. Thanks for the Pinnacle tour, Bob - I know you'll read this eventually." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great day. They had two interviewers per interview and each panel interviewed three people. After the interview, we were all discussing it and we pretty much all had different questions. Some were asked only about stuff from their file others of us were only asked personality type questions. Either way, we all were made to feel very comfortable and it was a great day."

"I really like DCOM and feel like I will fit right in. The faculty and current students are welcoming, and happy to answer questions. If you are yourself, you should have an easy time of the interview, and be accepted quickly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Gosh, I had an amazing time at DCOM. I'm absolutely in love. Go in, be yourself and don't worry about impressing anyone. They want to turn you from a bunch of numbers and letters on paper into a real person. Do that. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day went really well. Bob, the tour guide, was really cool and his wife makes great pumpkin bread as well!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really like this school's mission, faculty, and facilities. I really hope I get in. My advice for anyone about to interview is to be honest and upfront about what you want. The interviewers will guide the interview to uncover your desires anyway, so you might as well tell them first. Guess I should comment here that in general interviews are scheduled for 30 minutes, but that I interviewed for about 60 minutes due to the cancellation of another applicant. I hope I didn't talk their ears off too much." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great school, but the location is not for everybody. The curriculum is a great balance of integrated and subject-based. The facilities are the best I could imagine for a clinically-focused school. Everybody I met was very excited to be there and very happy with their choice of schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"After seeing and experiencing DCOM at my interview, this school has become my top choice! The location is about as rural as it comes, but the mountainous setting, top notch facility and extremely enthusiastic and dedicated faculty and students have sold me on this school. Also, you should go to Oasis for pizza with the students the night before your interview. It was very relaxed, very helpful and Dr. Stowers (Dean of the medical school) stopped by to say hello, which was very cool!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great School.... Always willing to answer questions... if you interview you are accepted or waitlisted no rejections" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ranked the BEST amongst all the other schools. LMU spared no expense to get great faculty from other Medical Schools as well as making sure that their students are well taken care of." More from this Member | Report Response

" DCOM was my first interview and I was really impressed at the time, because of the excellent facilities. After seeing other schools, I really feel like it will be a good school in the future, but they have a lot of growing to do." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pretty nervous for the interview because it was my first one, but all of the staff and faculty are really friendly, and for the most part the interview itself is pretty low-stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall great. Liked the med school, the people, and the opportunities they are lining up. Good lunch, too! I liked it that they gave us a tour of the on-campus housing also instead of just talking about it. The tablets they provide are great (I have friends at other schools that use them). I really hope I get accepted. I can see myself doing well there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was very laid back and welcoming. My interviewers were very nice and I could tell that they just wanted to get to know me, not grill me about my GPA, MCAT or EC's. The school is amazing . . . everything is brand new and state of the art. " More from this Member | Report Response

"great experience this is my number choice after my positive interview experience...by the way the technology kinda kicks every other med school's ass!" More from this Member | Report Response

"i honestly did not feel that it was a ''relaxed'' interview. the one interviewer started the interview out negatively by implying that i was involved in ''too many'' extracurriculars during college. it did not feel like a conversation as my other interviews have felt; it seemed as though i was speaking to a brick wall. they gave no facial or verbal feedback and rarely asked any follow-up questions. obviously, this made the interview even more stressful. also, know i am not alone. i talked with 2 of the other interviewees that day as we toured the campus and they told me they also had a negative interview experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"It really was an enjoyable day. You have nothing to be nervous about at all. Everyone is very friendly. I stayed at the holiday inn express, and the school sent a shuttle to pick up all the intervewees staying there, they also dropped us back off after the interview. The day starts out with an admissions presentation, then you learn about the cirriculum, rotations and financial aid. You then go in for your interview, have a building and grounds tour, eat lunch and go home. It was very laid back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers/students kept saying how laid back the interview was and for the most part it was but I got tripped up some of the questions. I think it was mostly my nerves though. This was my first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview ever, so I was EXTREMELY nervous before. But I recommend going to the pizza dinner the night before (RSVP just to make sure students will show up), and then dont be afraid to ask questions. The campus was absolutely breathtaking, Bob the shuttle driver is the nicest guy, everyone else is really friendly. I was impressed with everything- the anatomy labs, OPP labs,their willingness to help with financial aid etc... I really hope I am accepted because if so, I will probably go there! Best of luck to y'all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interviewers were polite and laid back. My interview performance was shaky but I still got accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very pleased with the school. If accepted I will probably cancel my other interviews. I love the technology and the fact that you get a laptop which you do everything on. My only complaint is the pizza thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a rough time getting down to the campus. The story is rediculously long and detailed so I won't get into that. After arriving at the campus all of negativity melted away. The interviewers were great and tried their best to make you feel comfortable. The interview is conversational and not a grilling. I thought the 2 on 1 interview style would be stressful, but it wasn't. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Laid back, just like everyone says. I really cant say enough how impressed I was by the faculty and the facilities. Just relax and be yourself and you should be fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"The trip started out with some of the DCOM students meeting at a pizza place near the school. It was an informal, non-required part, but it was very helpful. If they're still doing that when you interview, you should definitely take part. Afterward I went back to the room to prepare. I was extremely nervous the day of the interview (it was my first and it is my top school choice), but like everyone has said all along, there was really no reason to be nervous. My interviewers were awesome. They really just wanted to get to know me better. The questions were straightforward and lead to a great conversation. Just relax, be yourself, and answer the questions honestly." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very laid back and conversational. The interviewers were personable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a relaxing experience. My interviewers were really nice and informative. Definitely ask them questions and show interest in the computer notetaking system! One of my interviewers showed me the website he was making for his class and explained what the notes available online would be like." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview was great. I was impressed with the school, except for the anatomy lab. They are really doing their best to put out top of the line doctors. The school has top of the line everything. Debusk put a lot of money into his school to make it happen." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day began with a number of presentations from different faculty members. After about an hour, interviews began, with two panels for 7 interviewees, so two people went at a time. We had a campus tour which included the apts. that are being renovated from a building that used to be a hotel, and skipped lunch because it was a holiday. Overall, a fairly stress-free day! The interviewers definitely wanted to put us at ease and make the experience as comforatble as possible." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very polite from the first hello to saying goodbye. The staff is fantastic and the facility is going to be top notch. I was extremely excited about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers created a false sense of security. They make you think it is laid back, but actually they are really picky. Be on guard for the interview. Be ready. I do not want to scare you because it is low key, but when it comes to judging you, they are like Simon Cowell on a bad day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed. The interviewers did not ask questions that could have been answered by reading my file!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Out of all of my interviews this was the most impressive and amazingly its a brand new program. Overall, the experience was nothing but great. The admissions staff were all helpful, enthusiastic, organized, and supportive. I really liked all of the faculty I met that day. Definately a school to look into for future applicants."

"Arrived early morning and listing to the same type of presentations most medicals go through ie. financial aid, years 1-4, rotations, and talking up school. They grabbed us one by one to go and interview with two interviewers. My interviewers were very negative, well actually only one was because the other one sat there and gave little to the interview. I felt like they already made a judgment before I even got there in which case they could have sent me a letter and save me money and time. After all this we were taking to eat lunch in the cafeteria which is also used by the grade schoolers since the area is so small they include the grade school on LMU campus. Then they took us on a tour of the campus and then up to a point in the mountains that overlooked the school and town. It was very beautiful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was amazing. This school is my first choice and was before I even came up here to interview. I have heard NOTHING but great things about this school and it was absolutely EVERYTHING I could possibly want out of a medical school! I would be thrilled to be accepted here and be a part of the first graduating class!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Our interview day was shortened because it was the Friday before Christmas and the undergrads were already on break (thus, no lunch). For that reason, the day was pretty short and sweet. I was impressed that Dr. Stowers spent so much time with us, and I loved the fact that the faculty came in and chatted with us during ''waiting'' times. This was a truly unique experience that I loved as we got to further discuss the school with them and what their vision is for the school. The interview itself was very relaxed and conversational. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"They put all the interviewee's in the same room. Then, they gave us information about the school, curriculum, and showed us the layout of the school. They took us in individually for the interviews. It was very relaxed. The cadre talked with us casually while we were waiting for everyone to finish. We went on a tour of the campus (in a van) and then to the top of a mountain. Came back and said goodbye!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Informative talks from various faculty and staff, then interviews (30 mins each) Lots of opportunity to chat with folks, ask questions, and see campus and community. Very informative day." More from this Member | Report Response

"After I drove into Harrogate I found my hotel in KY. Everyone smokes everywhere, which is amoung many culture shocks there are to experience. The new school building is the largest building and one of the only large buildings in the area which makes it easy to find. The staff was nice and informative and very exited about their new school. The interviews are a bit informal and it was a bit difficult to grasp what they wanted to know from you. I think that because there have been so many applicants because there is no secondary application fee the admissions staff is being very picky at this point. Eating lunch with the admission staff was nice. The area would be a huge culture shock to move to if you are not from that area. For that reason I am not putting this school high on my list. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a pleasant day. Everyone is very enthusiastic about the school. It appears that this will be an excellent school to be part of--though it is VERY rural (the school and Dollar General store are the downtown) and not that easy to reach. If it wasn't so hard to get to, I'd definitely put it towards the top of my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful. The only school I applied to, and am happy I did!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed it very much. Again the interviewers were extremely interested in what I had to say, and were very well mannered." More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall experience was wonderful. My ratings are lower than the average, but this is simply because I do not believe in absolute perfection. Funny, because I strive for it. :) The local area of Harrogate is immensely beautiful. The building needs work. The faculty is very friendly. Jody, Dr. Stowers, Mr. Carney, and Dr. Kiick each had a genuine interest in making us feel extremely welcome." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty was absolutely down to earth. Interview is stressful only if you freak out like I do! Overall, low stress but prepare for it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview itself was too brief, but the interaction with the staff throughout the day was nice. Everyone seemed to be genuinely excited about the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very enjoyable. The faculty that were present were welcoming and were all very enthusiastic about the new DO program. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Like I said, everyone there is soooo enthusiastic. The faculty are some of the best around and they actually seem very excited to pass on their knowledge to the their first class. The new school will have all the newest and latest technology. I would recommend everyone to check this place out." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was a little apprehensive about the school given its newness and its rural setting, but the school just blew me away! Everyone was super nice, including the fellow interviewees. I was impressed by the faculty & their work experience, how excited they are about the school. The area has everything you could need (but not everything you might want). However Knoxville is a big city about an hour away that's got everything (big mall, Target, Starbucks, major restaurants). The history of the area is really interesting as well, and the city of Cumberland Gap is quite a throwback to another time. Lots of hiking trails, outdoor activities in the nat'l park which is great. The interview was really relaxed, they were really friendly and were glad to answer my questions about residency, accredidation, etc. Ad long as you prepare for the questions you see listed here, you'll do OK!"

"First was a presentation about the school by various faculty. Then a financial aid presentation, interviews, lunch, and a little tour around town. Everyone is so welcoming." More from this Member | Report Response

"We all had arrived by 8:45am and sat in a conference room. We heard from Dr. Leo and some other faculty about how the school was going to look, the curriculum, ect. The interviews were very laid back, I would even call them fun. It was basically like a quick chat about your life. Then we had lunch in the cafeteria, which was good. Then a quick tour around the Cumberland area. Then filled out a survey and that was it. We didn't get the financial aid presentation but that's alright. I am sure if we end up going to school there that they will be plenty helpful with any student aid questions we have. " More from this Member | Report Response

"First thing I noticed when I stepped out of the airport was how clean the air is! The drive from the airport to the school was longer than I expected it to be but luckly I got a triptix from AAA so I had no problems. I truly enjoyed the area which is so beautiful especially since when I went, the trees were turning. The interview itself went great. The other students and I had a great time and we all talked to each other throughout the day as if we had known each other for years. The faculty and admissions staff were so enthusiastic about the area and the school. The medical school itself is going to be amazing with its use of extensive technology. The faculty made a point to mention that they were trying to add any and all technology possible. Once complete, it will be one of the most state of the art facilities in the country. Once the interviews were complete the students and the faculty went to the cafeteria to eat lunch together which was great because it allowed you to get to know each other better. Overall, I loved the charm of the area and I know that it will become an excellent school." More from this Member | Report Response

"We arrived before 9am. Everybody interviewing was introduced to a few faculty who went over the school's info, i.e. accreditation, the new building, curriculum, 3rd and 4th year rotations. After this we were called in one by one to interview with two faculty. The interview was held in a more conversational way which made it very comfortable! The day ended with a tour around campus, lunch at the cafe, and a tour around the Cumberland Gap area." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started at about 8:45AM in the LMU library. We were given a presentation by the assistan dean of admissions and then the dean talked to us. He seemed like a great guy. Following that we were given a presentation on the preclical curriculum. I liked that it was system's based as it helps teach the curriculum more effectively. They will also have patient actors and simulators to help teach the students to interact with patients. After that we were given a presentation on the 3rd and 4th year. They said most of the hospitals were within a 60 mile radius. In your fourth year you also have an option to go to other sites during your electives. After that the interviews started. We waited in the room and interacted with the other applicants until they called us for our interview. The interview was 30 minutes and it was 2 interviewers to one applicant. They had their set questions, but my interviewers made it conversational too. I got 2 ethical questions/ scenarios as well. They said that they were also going to take notes which was okay. Overall, my interviewers were very friendly and awesome. At around 12:00 we took a tour of the lmu campus and town in a van and then ate lunch. Then we did a survey of our experience at the interview. The day ended around 2PM" More from this Member | Report Response
