"I was very impressed with the facilities as well as the friendliness of the students. The area, though a good 20 mins from Atlanta, still has a lot of positives around it. I personally like the fact that the building is all-inclusive, and it doesn't matter to me that there's only vending on-campus because there are more than a handful of restaurants in the immediate area."

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day was disorganized. The tour was short and didn't show where medical student study and hang out. The welcome staff were unfriendly. They were not transparent about where their clinical rotations are held. They did not reveal any information about their board scores. When I inquired about research opportunities and support for students, they dismissed my questions with very general answers, "There are opportunities." "Of course there is support." However, no details." More from this Member | Report Response

"We were told that the writing assignment was going to guide our interview and my interviewer didn't ask me questions based off of it. Staff/student didn't seem to be passionate about the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's freezing in the anatomy lab!" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Did not get to talk to many students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cafeteria was tiny, the gym was tiny, the SIM room didn't have orthopedic simulations. Also, it has taken over three weeks to hear back a decision- they promised they'd send out decision letters in two weeks." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was not transparent about where its clinical rotation sites are." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide seemed very uninterested. Did not get to see that much of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ultra jaded professor interviewed me. Even though he was new, seemed to have a very glum view on the entire field at large. Bizarre. So being optimistic, I feel, almost hurt my chances." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school itself does not have a lot of individual study space." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was a bit short and we had a very spastic biomed student instead of a medical student giving us the tour, which I found a bit disappointing. Also, I wish my interviewer had other questions for me. He basically asked all of the questions on the sheet, and while I elaborated, I could only do so much because I added so much detail." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school doesn't talk much about the clinical education, a crucial factor in deciding about attending the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing negative" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school doesn't officially sponsor medical mission trips." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, to be honest!" More from this Member | Report Response

"1) Had biomedical students touring us around 2) Admissions staff were not dressed professionally (this is medical school people, not a trip to Walmart). 3) Large student to cadaver ratio 4) Per the student touring us, the tests all take place on the same day. 5) Interviewers did not seem genuinely interested in having me attend there. They seemed disinterested in the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Unable to sit in on a lecture or talk to current students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not being able to ask a current D.O. student specific questions, however, the BioMed student who lead the tour was well-informed and pleasant." More from this Member | Report Response

"the campus location / town" More from this Member | Report Response

"The building felt a little odd inside, like it used to be something other than a school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The poor of gym, bookstore, and cafeteria. If you going to spend you life studying at the school, you need release activities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really turned me off. Some people have commented about the fact the school is a converted warehouse, but that honestly doesn't bother me. I've already had the "big campus" experience and it's not the facility that makes you a good doc...it's the quality of the education and how much work you put in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not very much. On the tour, they told us that they may be knocking out the two existing larger classrooms and would be replacing them during the summer, though I'm not sure if that is a definite. The class sizes are being increased to 135(?) so they will definitely need larger classrooms if they want everyone to be able to fit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Food isn't served in the cafeteria, there are only vending machines. This isn't that bad though as there are plenty of places to eat right around campus. The tour guide said there has been talk about getting someone in to serve food and she said clubs are always having free food for everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing specially" More from this Member | Report Response

"Disjointed communication by main campus and GA" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is in an old warehouse, BUT it is very modern and airy inside. I would have liked to see more outside areas for studying, eating, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to wait a long time for my turn to interview. This was pretty much idle, nerve-racking time. There were some extenuating circumstances that led to the longer than normal delay though." More from this Member | Report Response

"so small" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer seemed a little awkward and seemed to end the interview abrubtly. It only lasted for about 15 minutes. I was prepared for at least 30 minutes and was hoping that the interviewer would ask more questions regarding my academic background." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student tourguides acted too much like salesmen. I don't think they were honest. There is no dress code, so the students looked really unprofessional. They did not look medical students. The school is basically in a converted warehouse. The division between the first and second year classrooms is one of those dividers that you find in a banquet hall that folds into the wall. The white coat ceremony is held in the OMM room after they move all the OMM tables out of the room. The library is tiny. The faculty member that interviewed me was border-line rude and definitely abrasive. There is not cafeteria, just a bunch of tables and chairs. We were informed that we would only have one interviewer instead of the normal two because all other faculty members were busy. How you do not have faculty members available to interview applicants when you know they are coming is beyond me. No financial aid information was provided in our interview bag. I was actually informed that financial aid information was not even discussed until orientation. I got the overall feeling that PCOM-GA is disorganized. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school doesn't really have a "campus" feel. And the diversity within the classes that were being held that day seemed minimal. The cafeteria was just a collection of tables and chairs, but they may have enough students with the opening of the pharmacy school to hire a company to provide food. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing to speak of" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, I'm pretty sold that this is where I want to be!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The college is basically a parking lot and one building. They don't have a campus as it's really an industrial park. I came from a school with a beautiful campus, so maybe that's why I thought it was a negative. However, that won't be an issue." More from this Member | Report Response

"That you didn't know when (in what order) you were going to interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions office is very unorganized. Interviews times given didnt reflect the time you were interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't ask me about my grades." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of food service, small gym" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I didn't know if I would like the campus since it's not like most others but I did. No parking or traffic problems." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much of a campus or surrounding area but the building is great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I guess... the fact that it has no campus. I come from a very large university so it was strange at first but I'm sure I'll get used to it." More from this Member | Report Response

""Warehouse" feel." More from this Member | Report Response

"No windows in the school, skylighting, but no windows" More from this Member | Report Response

"the campus is really a corporate warehouse. no outside hang-out area (although they do have room)" More from this Member | Report Response

"In a warehouse. Doesn't really matter as long as you're going to be properly trained to be a physician but they don't have a true campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"It really is just a building. Nowhere outside to sit or hang out." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there were going to be ethical questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the writing assignment was actually pretty long given you only get 30 minutes. Everyone said it was just "general questions," but they were actually questions that require a good bit of thought." More from this Member | Report Response

"It would be a one-on-one, blind interview" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"I wish I knew that my interview would be mostly ethics questions, but pretty laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"In the beginning, they sit you down at a computer and have you write responses to mini prompts, which are then used in your interview. Also, when trying to think about potential answers to potential questions, I didn't know at the time it was closed-file, and the interviewer had never seen my file before. They didn't even know my major, hobbies, activities, etc. except those I talked about in my earlier written prompt. ALSO, the interview process lasted until about 4:00, when they told us it would be done by 2:00; a lot of people had to be rushed because they had flights for 4:00 or soon after." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is closed file." More from this Member | Report Response

"That we didn't have to do the writing portion due to an exam that day." More from this Member | Report Response

"The class was already full when I interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"That this schools has really a great reputation, and that the building was not that bad as told here by others." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would be a one-to-one interview as opposed to two-on-one." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing - the website is incedibly helpful and informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the road names had changed. My GPS, and myself by extension, could not find the right road." More from this Member | Report Response

"They were going to ask about the amount of school I applied to! I stated the reason I really wanted to go to GA-PCOM, but it could of been better if I had a reasonable plan of answering the question." More from this Member | Report Response

"I pretty well prepped...I'm just lucky I was in a position where I could afford to fly out on relatively short notice (one week between notification of interview invite and assigned date of interview)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nada." More from this Member | Report Response

"That GA-PCOM has good research opportunities - a big plus in my book." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was this low stress and short." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"May have to wait for interview even if you are scheduled for a specific time." More from this Member | Report Response

"How low stress the interview was going to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"Rumor that an invite to GA-PCOM for interview will most likely prevent you from getting an interview at Phillie PCOM (not confirmed, just talked about amongst interviewees)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview times are not exact, but my group was small and it wasn't really a problem for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"That although you may get, say a 1:00pm interview spot, you may go later, at 2pm, or 3pm." More from this Member | Report Response

"How the short the interview would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"That if your MCAT is <25, do not even bother even coming to the interview because you will not be accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The rotations of 3rd and 4th year students are on a match program with different tracts in surrounding states. You get matched with a particular rotation and will have to make arrangements to relocate if necessary. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Who was going to interview me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's only one building, but honestly, after going to a university with a HUGE campus, this is a nice change!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. SDN interview feedback and forums prepared me for everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the campus is in an industrial park." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish I had known to prepare for a short interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrive at 11:45, tour until 12:30, sandwiches for lunch, then interviews. Be prepared to wait for your interview...mine started three hours late." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the interview would be finished earlier than they had told me" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview time might be later than what e-mail says. Don't plan on getting out an hour after that time-I left an hour and twenty later than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had brought a book. LOTS of sitting around and waiting." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's two interviewers at the same time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good school, good campus, good students, good professors" More from this Member | Report Response

"School's facilities seem nice, staff subpar" More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the interview day. Interviews took place last, so by the time I was called in, most of my nerves had settled." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed this school; it exceeded my expectations." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great staff, interview was very conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was an okay school, nothing super special, BUT I would be happy to go here. The location is nice, although expensive, and the small class size is very nice. Everyone was friendly, and I could see most people being happy there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Impressive school overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, I wasn't impressed by the way the interview day was conducted. Entire group of 32 students sat around for 45 minutes after the scheduled start time. Lots of the staff were standing around joking with each other, delaying almost everything on the itinerary. There is a writing portion. Don't stress out...the questions are indeed used later in your interview. For example, they may ask you to elaborate. Be thinking about those questions throughout the day. Hopefully they will ask you to expand on these questions, lest they drill you with ethics questions. No dress code for students is pretty much the coolest thing about this place imo. We all go through so much in this process, and professionalism is very much expected of us. However, PCOM-GA seemed to set a double standard in this regard. I would still go here, I do believe they prepare competent physicians. It was really the intangibles that PCOM-GA was lacking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with great people." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like this whole interview was just a formality. I was told that the earlier you're interviewed, the more likely you are to get in, and they get choosier as the year closes (pretty much filled by Christmas) and a lot of wait lists during the spring semester." More from this Member | Report Response

"Taking pictures of everyone for school IDs on interview day is very inefficient. I would recommend waiting until orientation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most relaxing interview day ever. My best advice is to not stress out over your preparing for your interview. Instead of rehearsing, just spend a few minutes thinking about typical questions and your answers. The staff will make sure you are well prepared for your interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think I'll matriculate here. OMG, I'll be a doctor!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved this school even more after the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the time spent at PCOM-Ga. As soon as I walked in and was greeted by smiling faces and supportive staff, I knew that it was exactly where I wanted to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school seems excellent and seems to truly care about its students and their success. There was evidence that the staff, faculty and students care deeply about their studies and each other and genuinely want each other to be successful and happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is expanding, which could be viewed as a positive or a negative. Right now, they seem a little cramped for space. However, they are building more facilities and seem responsive to the students' needs." More from this Member | Report Response

"GA-PCOM is a fantastic school! The interviews are typically held on Mon. and Tues. with 10 or > interviewee. Just be friendly to everyone around you, smile, and show them who you are and why you deserve to be accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is the lowest stress interview I had. The only formal questions I was asked where why medicine/why D.O. The rest was purely conversational. The students and faculty are so friendly. The students seemed genuinely happy to be there. I feel that in the next couple of years, GA-PCOM will emerge as one of the top D.O. programs in the U.S." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school. The professors I interviewed with completely sold the school to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had good time during the interview. They didn't even ask why I want to go for DO, but I answered it anyway. I heard some interviewers ask tough questions just to see how you handle the stress, but that did not happen with me. Overall I prepared well and the interview was very laid back, I did not even feel like it's interview. But that's just me. Generally speaking our group had good day during the interview and school tour etc. People were friendly, the school was attractive." More from this Member | Report Response

"A school I feel I will do well at. Not my first choice, but certainly not my last. I am very excited." More from this Member | Report Response

"what a great school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a very positive experience and feel better because of it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Thought everything went very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The pictures on the school's website don't do the place justice, simply because it is so open and expansive that getting a good photo would be difficult. The facilities are amazing and felt very alive with students meeting in groups, studying in the library and working out in the gym together. I got a real sense of the community atmosphere while visiting the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"enjoyable!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I left the interview unable to gauge how well I did. I feel that I'm a very competitive applicant, but the interviewer shook my confidence a little bit by ending the interview so abrubtly. However, I received a call from Trena 9 days after my interview stating that I had been accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ga-PCOM impressed me a lot because the students really take pride in their school. I enjoyed being there and this school is tied for my top choice for med school" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer actually ended my interview early because he could not get off of my MCAT score. I was not treated respectfully in the interview. I got a weird feeling about this place overall. It didn't feel like a medical school to me. It definitely was not the right place for me. My experience is only one experience of many. Maybe others have had and will have a better experience than I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is a really nice school. The students and faculty were both friendly. Take something with you to read while you wait to interview. I was last in a group of 7, so it was nice to have something to do while waiting. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed on a Tuesday and received an e-mail the next day that I had been accepted. The fast response surprised and impressed me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really loved the school! Everyone is really friendly, the facility is nice and it seems like a great fit for me! Hopefully I get in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great location, great people. Make sure you say Georgia P-C-O-M (all spelled out) instead of PCOM (pee-com)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went well. They said tht we should know between 2-4 weeks after the interview date whether we got in or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"School was great, people made you feel very comfortable and overall the experience was very low-stress and enjoyable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school. This interview helped solidify GA-PCOM for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview is laid back. Just go over your applications, essays, etc, and BE HONEST!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I would be really happy if accepted. Its a small school, good community dynamics, seems easy to get to know professors, and state of the art technology is a good thing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Get ready to defend any C's or a bad MCAT. I heard that from several of my co-interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great interview experience at Ga-PCOM and the admissions committee as well as professors seem really down to earth and willing to help you. Ga-PCOM made me feel like I was at home!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They meet twice a month to review files and you can find out within 2 weeks after they meet if you get in or not. Apply as early as possible. They told us that the people who apply early and get interviews in fall usually get the spots while spring interviewees are mostly for the waitlist." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice school. I wish they would have had more administration speak about the school, financial aid, ect. " More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"It would be VERY nice if, in addition to the snail mail decision letter, Banner updates could be made frequently." More from this Member | Report Response

"The wording of the emails sent out by the admissions staff is truly unlike anything I've ever seen from a professional institution. Abrasive language and disclaimers stating that the staff won't entertain phone calls regarding receipt of materials is simply baffling, given the fact that PCOM-GA requires a more than standard fee for processing the secondary application submission. That said, I was impressed by location of the facilities and the friendliness of the students. A net-positive impression. But I do think they could drastically improve their appeal with minimal effort." More from this Member | Report Response

"There should be multiple students giving the tours to smaller groups of interviewees. The school itself is rather echo-ey, so it was very difficult to hear." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish they would call or email your acceptance instead of using snail mail as your FIRST notification. Apparently in-state students receive their letters later? I received mine a week after I saw on SDN that other students got accepted. I just wanted to know!! :p" More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep up the great work!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only thing I can think of is for them to update the interview invitation emails.
