I felt relaxed and comfortable. The school is perfect for me, and I could really see myself as a student there which is important to me. The anatomy labs are state of the art, and the mock-clinic where they bring in patient actors really impressed me, as did the robotic S.T.A.N. " More from this Member | Report Response

PCOM is located strategically, with almost everything available around a 5-10 mile radius. " More from this Member | Report Response

"EVERYTHING!! The day before, my father and I walked quickly around the school, and I think we saw the *back* of the school (didn't really know where we were going), so I was kind of nervous that the school looked deserted (being a Sunday and all). However, when I arrived the next morning for my interview, the campus was so full of life! The facilities really are amazing-- you should see the anatomy lab! Who's ever heard of an anatomy lab on the sixth floor, containing an entire wall of windows that overlook the skyline of Philly???? I sat in on a class with the first years, and the teaching was amazing-- totally engaging; even though it was a lecture hall with 200+ students, people were raising their hands, asking questions! Also, Deb Erdner (assistant director of admissions) is so incredibly kind and caring; I cannot tell you how much she put me at ease. Also, it was amazing that a second year student sat with us interviewees for the ENTIRE time we were waiting, making sure we weren't nervous! Everyone *is* so nice there; it truly is not a cliche.

"The facilities--WOW! Everything is immaculate. The anatomy lab is bright and well-ventilated and has a beautiful view of the Philly skyline. The new student activity center is gorgeous; the 76ers practice there. The faculty, staff, and students have to be just about the friendliest people on the planet. All day, students were constantly coming up to the interviewees wishing us good luck and asking if we had any questions. One actually took about 45 minutes out of his class time to talk to us about PCOM. While the student body is relatively large, it feels like a big family and the students seem supportive of one another. The curriculum is totally integrated, meaning that everything you learn has a broader context. There is A LOT of research going on. The 6 core hospital they're affiliated with have a total of over 1,000 combined beds. They just bought a new robotic patient simulator, which very few med schools--MD or DO--have. You see patients as early as your first trimester. The scribe service is reputed to be very good. The lecture halls are big and can get crowded, but are chock full of hi-tech gadgets--very impressive. To top it all off, even the food in the cafeteria is great! Over half of PCOM grads now specialize, and many go on to do very high-profile residencies. There are a ton of student organizations; I saw signs advertising the upcoming student SKI TRIP sponsored by the ski/snowboard club." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had high expectations because posters on the pre-osteo forum seem to think it's a good school, but their didn't really seem to be anything amazing about it. The students and faculty told me on multiple occations that it was the best DO school and their grads are immune from any DO bias. They ripped on allopathic schools alot and talked about how they had a better reputation than the city's allopathic schools. One student told me how he gets a better education than Penn students, which made me want to roll my eyes. The school wasn't that bad, but everyone I met was pumping it up and selling it like they were brainwashed and insecure about thier mediocre school. For all their bragging and putdowns, they don't have their own teaching hospital!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was generally not impressed. It just seemed like one of those new schools that shot up in the last few years that give DO schools a bad name. I don't think anyone would go here if they had a choice. The school is just a big, ugly, one-story warehouse so there really is no campus to speak of. The students were nice, but they didn't seem enthusiastic or happy. The few I talked to also didn't seem very smart honestly. The school couldn't tell us much about the rotating sites for 3rd and 4th year. Sounds like they don't have much lined up and their students will be on their own to set up rotations. Yuck. I will go here if I don't get in anywhere else, but I hope I don't have to." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot. The interviewers were not very friendly, sitting in the ''fishbowl'' for 3 hours" More from this Member | Report Response

"The wearhouse look of the building...but at least it's colorful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the financial aid lady did not provide any information, but I later learned that everything is online" More from this Member | Report Response

"During the interview my interviewers just sat with their heads down writing notes. There was no conversation and it was hard to judge how they felt about me, but I got an acceptance two weeks later so they must have liked me! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The smaller recreation area. Don't get me wrong, the building itself if quite large, but as far as machines and free weights, I think it could get crowded pretty quickly. Everything else about PCOM was great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The financial aid lady was unkempt and not very helpful, she didn't have time to put any thing together for our packets." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is located in an old warehouse near the busy city of Atlanta. I also experienced a lot of complications with communication with the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"my interview was afteran exam date, so the place was empty! It was hard to tell what the school really felt like when there was no one in it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Campus is pretty small. One building. Library is tiny. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much except the class is large, but it does not come across as such." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't get to see the anatomy lab or STAN. They say that the anatomy lab is huge with a large window overlooking the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"They're still not as " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is a converted warehouse, it just gave a bad first impression, but it does make up for it on the inside! No scholarships available as of yet. Because they are so new, no board rates nor major clinical involvement in first two years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that everyone was told it was going to be a conversational interview and it was nothing like a conversation at all! It was question, on question, and the faces of the interviewers were cold and stern. I couldn't tell if I should talk more or less. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Large class size? " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too much...just didn't like the question about what other schools have I applied to." More from this Member | Report Response

"The only negative thing with respect to my visit was that I was interviewed last (even though I was not scheduled last) and the student giving the tour started it before I was done interviewing. So, I ran to catch-up and missed over half of the tour. What I did see was extremely nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing - visiting the school actually dispelled most of the doubts I'd had coming into the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"One student said the classrooms are overcrowded and it is not worth the money" More from this Member | Report Response

"bookstore is open, but not fully stocked yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day wasn't planned out at all... No breakfast even though the email said that there would be one. Nothing to do while waiting except talk to a current student... Wished there was more of a 'campus' feel to it... " More from this Member | Report Response

"none" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers was quite negative and hostile regarding my aspirations to do research as well as clinical medicine. I sat in on a lecture which was very difficult to follow because the room was huge, crowded with students, and noisy. The anatomy lab had a strong odor to it that I could smell down the hall as we approached it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was a little surprised at the size fo the gym. I figured it would be more accomidating with a class size and all..." More from this Member | Report Response

"No negative impressions. I would just say prepare yourself that you may not be interviewed at your assigned time. When it comes to interviews, obviously some will be longer/shorter than others. I was just prepared to go in around my assigned time. However, I went in about 45 minutes before that time, other about 45 minutes after their time. Be prepared that they may change the interview schedule. It really isn't a negative impression, just some information you may find helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I was suppose to interview at 10 am and the interviews ran late. I finally interviewed at 11 ish. I overheard there are parking issues at time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing too negative- lighting within the building is sort of low and dark." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of organized research opportunities they had... This is growing though and the students who go there can really influence this." More from this Member | Report Response

"After arriving, we were offered a very light breakfast and then shown to the lobby of the admissions office, which was to be our home for the next 5 hours or so. Finally, everyone finished interviewing and then we waited another half hour for a student to show up for a tour. Bottom line = 5.5 hours spent on campus - 25 min. interview - 15 minute tour = lots of wasted time. No presentations,no financial aid info, no lunch with students - it was like we were being ignored. Finally, to cap the day the admissions officer told us that while a decision on our status would be made immediately, we could expect a letter in 4-6 weeks, completely contradicting the interviewer who had just told us to expect a letter within two weeks. The administration just did not do a good job of selling the school or of making me feel valued as a potential student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Philly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"no." More from this Member | Report Response

"Class size. I didn't think it would be such an issue, but when you compare a large Osteopathy school with a medium sized or even large Allopathy school the one on one face time with instructors is much better at an Allopathy school." More from this Member | Report Response

"PCOM provides you with breakfast and that was the worst...not the food but the time. I would say that comparing PCOM with schools who provide lunch, the lunch is much more relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process seemed very disorganized at times. After breakfast, there was a lot of down time as individuals interviewed. The admissions staff did not offer the chance for us to go and sit in on lectures." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"The interview was AWFUL! Even if i get into the school i don't want to go! My mcat/gpa are ABOVE the school's average yet the interviewer told me that my academic profile is not strong and instead of going to the peace corps as backup i should just improve my grades. He was quite negative and discouraging!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't thrilled with the wait. My interview was scheduled for 11:30 which was the last time slot, but they ran late and I didn't go in until almost 12. But, I kept calm by socializing with the other interviewers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Haha can't think of anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Long waiting time between interviewing and tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traveling to the school was expensive for a 20 min. interview. Also, it seems that the admissions staff are all new to the state so they didn't know that much. In fact, when I had my interview, the tour guide wasn't the one in charge of admissions, she was a sub." More from this Member | Report Response

"the wait for the interview was tough, as there were no classes, I didn't realize it untill afterwards, but it felt as if the interview was much longer than in actually was." More from this Member | Report Response

"The program, although connected with the Philadelphia campus is brand new. They only have (I think) 8 faculty right now. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This campus is brand new, so the program is still in a state of flux." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have visited PCOM on three different occasions and always left with the same impression: it just isn't the school for me. To begin, their admissions department is obviously in transition because most of the staff lack basic information about the school and possess little understanding of what sets PCOM apart from other institutions. Overall, they are unfriendly and seem to have a chip on their shoulders. I was not impressed by their director of admissions. She stated that she really wanted to cancel our interviews that day because she had so much going on in her life, but decided not to for some reason. Very unprofessional. In addition, our tourguides seemed more interested in conveying how cool they were instead of providing a quality and comprehensive tour of their school. They didn't take us to the library, anatomy lab, or many of the other buildings on campus. They were first year students and didn't know how to get to half of the places on campus and seemed to think that their ability to get lost was somehow funny. They seemed more interested in telling us how often their class goes out to bars together and how the 76ers practice in their school's gym. Finally, PCOM makes interviewers pay $5 for parking in their lot on interview day. If they really wanted to make a positive impression on prospects, they should consider providing a voucher for parking. I traveled from across the country to come to PCOM for the interview. The least they could do was provide a lousy parking pass." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing major, they just didn't provide a packet with information regarding the school, financial aid, etc. I wonder if they forgot about it that day?" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was not well organized, even after my interview I wasn't really sure when I was allowed to leave. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The time we had to wait between breakfast and our interviews. Bring something to read or talk to people." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was not much - this school really surprised me. Perhaps the large class size (250-270 students)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing persay, but having no board scores or match lists to look at is kind of scary and tuition is 34K a year" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wait for interview after breakfast was cumbersome. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Since there are so many MS1, (during my interview, I was told that there are 270-something MS1) the average number of students per cadaver is 5 or 6. One student explained that unless you want to cut, it isn’t a problem. But, in my opinion, I want to make the most of my education and cutting is as important as any other skill learned during medical school. Also, I was disappointed that PCOM has not integrated STAN (look it up on the website) into the program yet. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much..." More from this Member | Report Response

"How long we had to wait. I was supposed to have my interview at 11, but wasnt called in till 12:45. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The long wait between breakfast and the actual interview (~2.5hrs), the lack of funding for the DO/PhD route, and the clinical rotations available for 3rd/4th year students needs improvement. But they were honest about it..... " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, aside from the fact it was pouring rain." More from this Member | Report Response

"No info on the school, area, financial aid, interviews ran very late, so I had to miss the tour, students were on spring break so no one was around to talk to or visit a class." More from this Member | Report Response

"The odor in the anatomy lab was a bit pungent, though the student tour guide said one gets used to it after a while. Maybe the filter system is not all that state of the art. I did not get to meet any faculty members, partly due to the fact that I could not attend the breakfast." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well...it's a brand new school- so no current students to hit with questions, no definate teaching hospitals established. no tour of the school- facility is under construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"For anyone interested in stats: GPA 3.72, MCAT 29P with some volunteer experience and lots of research experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"They really do need to find some way for you to spend your time between interviews- there's a lot of waiting around. It was ok though, because the people in my group were cool. To be fair- there were no classes going on that day since the 1st years had a day off and the 2nd years had exams." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost of going here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The new facilities are not done being built. I was not able to go inside the new building and take a tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing in particular" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions office seemed unable to handle the large number of interviewees present. Interviews ran short and were felt by many to be relatively non-probing and uninteresting. My interviewers were brief and didn't seem prepared. When I asked questions about the school, they left them largely unanswered. The tour was led by two students, who immediately claimed that they loved PCOM so much they couldn't think of anything they would want different..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I already knew this, but the cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too organized. There were four of us, and after breakfast we just sat there while each of us was interviewed individually. The other three were cool, so it was all good." More from this Member | Report Response

"No financial aid presentation, no presentation of anything at all - just a brief interview and student tour. MSII student told us he lied, saying he wanted to go into primary care, just because he thought thats what the ADCOM wanted to hear. Also was told they'd let me know of their decision in "a few weeks" whereas KCOM informed me within 5 days. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the students who gave the tour were less than energetic, but from what i saw, this was the exception" More from this Member | Report Response

"nada" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guides didn't seem to have experience giving tours together before and read off a sheet of paper as to where to take us etc. But tons of students came into the admissions office all morning long to talk to us and that was so helpful. You really get the best feel for a school in talking to students I think." More from this Member | Report Response

"The amount of time students had to wait between breakfast and interviewing negatively impressed me. I was lucky to be one of the first candidates to interview. But, the other students were just sitting for hours and getting more nervous by the minute. After my interview, I had 2 hours of free time before the student tour began at noon. They said we were free to sit in on first and second year classes, but we didn't see any open seats and also didn't want to interrupt the class by trying to find an open seat." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hmm nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"Class size is HUGE and cost is high but I think that its well worth it for the quality of eduacation that you get and the amazing networking system that yo will build being that it is one of the first DO schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The majority of the day was spent just sitting around and waiting for interviews. I was the first to be interviewed, so from 9:45-12:00 I just sat around talking to other interviewees, unfortunately the interview was during Spring Break so we couldn't attend any lectures. It would've been helpful to get more information about financial aid and other stuff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything about the place. The wait was too long, the students were not too friendly, and they just don't seem like serious medical students. The faculty were very unprofessional and quite frankly, looked very mean and acted like they were something bigger than what they are- just people. " More from this Member | Report Response

"not a thing" More from this Member | Report Response

"waiting 3.5 hours for my interview in one room, but students did come in to chat" More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the class (I didnt realize that all 250 students have class together ALL day). I felt like wallpaper all day because my interview was near the end and they switched the person who they orginally announced would be my interviewer. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It had that high school/fraternity atmosphere going on. I looked up the stats for students going here and the MCAT scores and GPA were pretty low. ALso, the pass rate on boards is below what I consider to be acceptable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview itself- the director of admissions was one of the interviewers and was not at all friendly towards me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewers were very cold. As others posted, I did not feel that the interviewers cared about getting to know me. It was just ask the standard questions and then get out." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were not friendly in the least bit. When it was my turn to ask questions I asked "what percentage of 4th years get into their 1st choice for residency." The Director of Admissions looked at me and just replied "that is a really bad question." I take that to mean that she either did not know the answer or did not want to answer. Regardless, there is no such thing as a bad question. There was no need for her to be rude. Also, we were told that the members on the panel had spent a great deal of time reviewing our apps before the interview. Maybe they forgot to do that with mine cause they were asking me basic questions that were clearly answered in my secondary. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was one of the last ppl to go and we had to wait around for like 2 hrs.!! THen when I got to the interview, I felt like they were rushing me.

"The school was not as diverse as I had imagined." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student giving the tour short changed us. I had toured the campus before and we saw only 1/4 of what PCOM had to offer. This didn't hurt me because I knew what else they had. Be aware of this because they really have a lot of great facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just waiting in a room while the other students were being interviewed. They really did not have anything for us to do while we waited. But a few students came in and spoke to us about the school, so that helped. Also, I felt that the interviewers asked questions so quickly that I was unable to say as much as I would have liked." More from this Member | Report Response

"Of course, what everyone else complains about-- the wait till interview time. Also, the cafeteria is really nice, but it's so small, and I was disappointed that there was no salad bar.

"interview day agenda" More from this Member | Report Response

"Unsafe location, uptight fellow applicants, students making negative comments about the college president, large class size, clearly expressed preference for Penn State students, tour guides seemed clueless and unhappy, one student told me he chose PCOM because of the near 60-40 female-male student body ratio - is this why you pick a medical school?????"

"The campus was small - but who cares - downtown Phili is 15 min. away." More from this Member | Report Response

"We did a lot of sitting around waiting for the rest of the group to interview (there were 12 of us). Our tour was given by a student that was asked to do it at the last minute (not that organized). The interview is supposed to be open file, but they didn't really know anything about me - they asked me questions that were answered in my essays. " More from this Member | Report Response

If you are afraid of diversity, then PCOM is probably not the place for you.

"my southern accent was more noticeable than i anticipated " More from this Member | Report Response

"The class size. That really surprised me. I thought it would be bigger. By this time, I already had my acceptance to KCUMB. But they got some competition after that interview. In the end, it was a very difficult decision. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I prepared by researching PCOM's website, the Philadelphia area, the cultural climate and the nearby MD schools" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Everyone is really nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"What the election candidates had planned for the future of healthcare" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really surprised me. Pretty standard medical school. Everything was top-notch and brand-new. Nothing I saw would have kept me from applying if I had known beforehand, if that's what this question is asking." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is not really in the heart of Philadelphia and is more on the outskirts. Area around the school seemed cramped and dismal." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic is TERRIBLE around there. It took me 25 minutes to go the last 3/4 of a mile in my car. Leave an insane amount of time to get there." More from this Member | Report Response

"To bring small change for my parents parking. They paid the machine with a $10 bill (the cost was only a dollar or so) and received the change in all quarters. A little annoying, but the machines could have just been low on cash that day or something.." More from this Member | Report Response

"A meeting took place during the interview process so some students were finished with interviews and could leave after the tour of the facility." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there are a ton of people from my undergrad who attend PCOM." More from this Member | Report Response

"Integrated Curriculum. You learn one system at a time." More from this Member | Report Response

"That although the class size is huge, the students seem very close and friendly with each other. It seems to be a noncompetitve environment--which seems pretty amazing considering it is medical school. This is all very good in my opinion." More from this Member | Report Response

"That my file had not reached the campus due to a snowstorm at the Philadelphia Campus. They were very accomodating and made sure that I was still able to go through with my interview (this is why is was closed file for me)." More from this Member | Report Response

"While the facility is rather nice inside, the "campus" is really just a parking lot and a building - there's no where to sit outside at all. Feel like taking a walk between classes? - forget it. Traffic in Atlanta is really, REALLY BAD. PCOM-GA's mission is to train docs to serve in the south, and they are serious about it. When people found out I was from a northern state, they looked at me like I was from another planet. Be prepared to defend why you want to move to/practice in the south."

"That the breakfast was continental" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be so discouraged by the interviewer and that he would basically made it look like it was a waste of time that I was applying.

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

"I was not shocked by anything. I had learned a great deal from speaking with friends I know who attend. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, felt prepared" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, prior research was helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known that only breakfast was included (not lunch). Breakfast was held in the cafeteria, and the applicants had a wide range of breakfast foods to munch on. Also, there was a 15 minute break between each interview (Luckily we only had 6 people interviewing). Also, many of the students that interviewed already knew current students from undergrad (can be seen as a positive or a negative). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The wait time for the interviews is very long (three hours) and nerve-racking. It's best to converse with the other interviewees and relax." More from this Member | Report Response

"Im a biomed, so I pretty much knew everything to expect. You didnt have to attend the breakfast they provide for you, but Im glad I went. I think it looks bad to show up right before your interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I knew this from this site and the CD-ROM but everyone does refer to the school as P C O M, and not P-COM. Also, the cab ride from the Amtrak 30th St Sta costs about $11 only if there's NO traffic; really, it's more like $15-20." More from this Member | Report Response

"That all of the prospective students would be in a room together throughout the 3 hr interview process. There were 12 of us being interviewed and there were two groups of interviewers.

What are your general comments?

"The interview day here was honestly a great experience. I never felt anxious except at the start of the interview and that went away immediately. The people (students, staff, DOs) were extremely nice, and the day wasn't overly long, although I wish there was a formal presentation at some point and also a chance to ask questions to the financial aid staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great campus, great environment" More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring copies of your personal statement to hand out. If you are confident that your personal statement will stand-out, then offer to leave it with your interviewers. Also, ask for their business cards so you can follow up with them. This has become commonplace, so it won't make or break their opinion of you. It is more of a courtesy that shows you have done your research and know that this is kind of an unspoken "must" for interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff are friendly, wonderful people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just relax and have fun - because they are just trying to get to know you better!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"don't pronounce the school Peeee-COM prounounce each letter seperately PEE-SEE-O-EM. Apparently the old heads get upset when you make it sound like all the other osteopathic schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Really great first interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was extremely impressed by the school, especially the interviewers. I definitely hope to get good news from PCOM soon!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the process was very clear cut and simple. Having had an afternoon interview, I think that might have been slightly advantageous to the morning interviews who did not have the chance to go on the tour FIRST. Going on the tour before the interview was nice because it gave you a chance to loosen up, ask questions and get excited (rather than nervous!) about the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"PCOM is great. Hoping for good news." More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview is very individually focused, no hard-hitting health care questions or science problems here." More from this Member | Report Response

"PCOM seems like a great place to go for medical school. Current students have nothing but good things to say about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Top choice school from day one. So glad I was accepted on October 9!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ehh, PCOM has a good reputation and produces good doctors...but, I just wasn't feeling it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Best interview atmosphere yet! I thought the open filed interview would be much more difficult, but it was nice that they take the time to really do their research on you!" More from this Member | Report Response

"PCOM is a great school. I thought the school had a commuter vibe to it though, philly seems great though, not sure how I feel about the loss of their hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just go in and be yourself- smile, and just have a nice conversation. I had no odd questions- mostly all just off of my application. I never got any health care/ why do you want to be a doctor questions. Day starts at 8am- meet for breakfast with staff/a student. Then interviews go from 9am- 11:30/12. My interview was at 9am, but I didn't go in until 9:20. There was 3 interviewers, they're going paperless so they typed notes onto a laptop. Afterwards I had free time to kill until 12 when the campus tour was given. I sat in on OMSII classes for a couple of hours, then took a tour which lasted until about 1:15." More from this Member | Report Response

"I ended up getting accepted, which I am extremely grateful for because I have a low GPA and interviewed late in the cycle. I actually got a "delayed decision" letter first (ouch!) but then the acceptance followed a few weeks later. During those few weeks I did some more shadowing and had another D.O. letter of rec forwarded in, and I think going that extra mile might have tipped it in my favor because I've since learned that almost everyone else with those letters ended up on the waitlist. Phew." More from this Member | Report Response

"a lot of people think PCOM is the "best D.O. school" bc it's in phili and has been around forever, but this couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I got accepted. Very thankful for my acceptance because I interviewed late and only very, very few of us got accepted...most others got waitlisted or rejected. APPLY EARLY!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They like to hear P.C.O.M. (each individual letter) as opposed to PCOM (pee-com) and if they ask you "what is osteopathy" try not to use the word "holistic"." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the medical interviewers couldnt attend...I hope everything was okay for them. I was VERY concerned post-interview if I convinced n=1 enough! -At the Hilton (no free wifi =(), you literally park RIGHT next to PCOM. I was < 50 feet from the driveway =) and ditched my bags before my interview. I grabbed a light breakfast (free) when they open @ 6:30-6:45. The restaurant got busy when I was there and some ppl couldnt find a seat ~7am. They have a coat room when they take you back into "the fishbowl". -Chat it up while your waiting and de-stress...who cares if it takes 2 hours of killing time to get accepted to medical school?" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was like a conversation. Relax and be yourself" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you get a chance, apply to the school! You will be impressed with the facility, the people, and how at ease the interview is. RVU is stellar!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not sure about this school, but visiting really opened my eyes to what a great place it is! The curriculum seems great and there seems to be a greater sense of pride at PCOM than other osteopathic schools I have interviewed at. If out of state, stay at the Hilton as the Crowne Plaza is 3/4 mile, which isn't that bad, but walking in bad weather and a suit, I would have rather stay at the Hilton which is right by the campus. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a great experience, PCOM is a wonderful school. The students have a lot of pride and they were very friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Organize the interview day better!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the company of my fellow interviewees. They were incredibly qualified and likable. The interview process was framed as "non-stressful" by the admissions staff and I felt it wasn't for show. They did their homework on us before we arrived, it was apparent. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I <3 PCOM!!! One interviewer was really nice, the other was very stern and you couldn't read that person at all. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was very impressed with PCOM. The students and faculty create a family atmosphere. Unlike atleast one school in the area, PCOM does cadaver dissection, not prosection. The technology is fantastic." More from this Member | Report Response

"got there at 8ish and sat around and talked to other interviewees. talked to buffie about random things including financial aid. some students stopped by to talk. interviewed. watched an IV lab. student tour of the facilities during which learned everything imaginable about attending school there. left around noon" More from this Member | Report Response

"Typical interview experience. A little tougher than I expected, but not that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a waste of time. They did not want to know who I was. They only wanted to criticize my application. I'm better off not attending medical school there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive day. The interview was like a conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought I had a nice interview. The questions were direct and I felt I answered them well. I thought the school is very proud of itself and rightfully so. I got a good feeling on campus and truly felt like the rumours about the school being a ''family'' were true." More from this Member | Report Response

"Fairly conventional with the basic questions you would expect." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I showed up about an hour early for my interview. There were about 9 other interviewees in the fishbowl when I arrived. A discussion was held on financial aid information and then we just chatted until it was time for us to interview. The students, faculty and other candidates were all extremely nice. The only stress of the interview was how nervous I was to do well. Then we took a tour and had a nice lunch. Thats it!!! Nice school, nice people. I've heard it was located in the suburbs but it gave me the impression of a compact busy little city.....not suburban. But, I am from a very small town in the south." More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience at the interview was great. Food and drinks were provided in the interview area. I was nervous at first because of the high stakes of the day and didnt talk much until the interview. After the 15 minutes of chatting with a D.O. and a PhD, I was much more comfortable and the day was a lot less stressful. We finished all four interviews in an hour then went and sat in on a PCS class where they were discussing some interesting topics! (genital exams) We toured the facilities, talked with a student and then wrapped up. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great day. They two other gentlemen there for the interview were great. The PCS class we sat in on was a wonderful experience. I was very excited while I watched the students learn what I will be learning soon. The interviewers were very funny. I know they will have the theme to Underdog stuck in their heads for a while. I enjoyed the facilities. Just a wonderful experience overall. Great school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall my experience was postive, I would accept an a seat in the 2008 class in a heartbeat. Personally I am not happy with my responses though, I could have been more concise." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed in February, and chose this school over about a dozen other acceptances across the country. I am now in my first year. PCOM truly shines and Philadelphia is a major medical hub with outstanding hospitals. We share clerkships with local MD schools, including UPenn, Drexel, Temple and Jefferson. I made the right decision by choosing PCOM. The interview was stressful, although it was stressful not because the admissions team was intimidating, but because I wanted to be accepted. My best advice is to relax, know why you want to go through the rigors of becoming a doctor, know who you are, and BE NICE! As a current student, I have never heard one of the students complain about their choice. Also, when interviewing, be prepared to possibly wait for quite some time in the ''fishbowl.'' That wait can be an hour or two, and the stress levels may rise. My best advice with this is to speak with other interviewees while you wait. It makes the time go faster, and by the time you are called, you will be in more of a ''conversational'' mode, as opposed to facilitating a rapid (or drawn out) fire-and-answer session. My best interviews where conversational in nature. Most schools just want to find out who you are, and if you have the drive to work harder than you ever had in your life.

"This was my first interview so I was extremely nervous. This is probably the best interview I WILL EVER HAVE! Why? they really go out of their way to calm you down. My interview didn't last more than 5 minutes. There were 4 other people in my group..their interview lasted for half an hour each. I was the last one to be interviewed. As soon as I walked in, they told me I was an impressive candidate and asked whether I had any questions or not. I didn't get any questions from them. I asked them for a recommendation of a good anatomy book to look over to prep me for gross anatomy, and the interviewer (neuroscience prof)made me follow him to his office and gave me 3 books for free..as a gift!!!! This only happens in movies...It was very surreal. I felt like they really wanted me there. Financial aid lady is hilarious. well good luck to everyone and if you have any other question..feel free to PM me: Madhoshi. " More from this Member | Report Response

"we had breakfast with an enthusiastic OMM faculty member who pretty much covered most questions that we had. This was followed by waiting about for a couple of hours in the admissions office with the other candidates. It went by pretty quickly since everyone was friendly. The interview itself was laid back and friendly, however I was visibly stressed...really for no reason. I was asked a couple of tough questions about health care but I guess that that is fair game. The other interviewees said that they hadn't gotten any tough questions. My advice, trite but true, is really to just be yourself. " More from this Member | Report Response

"first off, I wore a nice black suit and short black heals. I wanted to note that because I had no idea what to wear and had to ask a bunch of different people. I was personally very nervous, but they interviewers were great and very nice. Really the school is the whole package, the students are a family and the faculty want you to survive and be successful :) it is a place that I look forward to attending. I answered the questions to the best of my ability, and I had tons of questions for them which I believe they liked." More from this Member | Report Response

This dragged on forever. The actual interview was laid back and conversational and was not intimidating nor were there any strange questions. At noon we were given a tour of the building in which classes are held and the neighboring building that houses the basketball court where the sixers practice and a small workout facility in the basement. Afterwards we were released by 1230 PM. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day began with breakfast in a room of the admissions office with a student. Immediately after breakfast, interviews began. Those of us waiting to be interviewed sat in a group in another part of the admissions office. Interviews were two interviewers on one interviewee and lasted 30 minutes (I found the interview unintimidating- the interviewers clearly just wanted to get to know me as a person and answer my questions about the school, which they did openly and honestly). With about 6 candidates, it took 3 hours (those of waiting were given the freedon to roam around the building as long as we came back on time for the interview). During the interview period, those of us waiting were given a too casual and unhelpful explanation of financial aid by the financial aid woman. After interviews were finished, we were given a casual tour by a student and set free. Admissions decisions (a yes for me) were mailed out within 2 weeks." More from this Member | Report Response

All of the canidates sat in the Financial Aid/Admissions office while each was called in for the 30 min. interview. The five of us got along great and chatted about each others experiences.

"Honestly-a waste of a day. The best part was that on my way out of town, I was able to grab a cheesesteak sandwich. I've already gotten into other MD and DO schools, so I just wanted to see PCOM, which other SDN'ers described as ''exclusive''. I'll let you be the judge of that when you have conversations with their students. Then there was the ''fishbowl'' experience. After breakfast with the dean of students (one of the bright spots), we all sat in a big room for about 3 hours while everyone interviewed. I think the entire time, about 3 medical students stopped by to let us know how great PCOM is. There were no activities during this time, and the chairs are all around the perimeter of a fairly large room, so you nearly need to yell to speak to other students. If I do end up going DO, I'm headed up to UNECOM, they're only 2K more per year, they are a heck of a lot friendlier, and the location is one to drool over. Speaking of drooling, that cheesesteak sure was good." More from this Member | Report Response

"We arrived at the school at 8:15 AM and went to the canteen area (where food is catered in for about 2 hours everyday). Talked with the financial aid lady, and two professors (one was an interviewer). There was no real informational presentation but we were allowed to ask the staff questions during breakfast. Interviews were two staff on one student. They were very laid back and the interviewers constantly promoted the school. They seem to already know if they are going to accept you. I really didn't have many questions, and those I did have, I had to interupt the interviewers to answer them. A student was in the ''fish bowl'' to answer questions while interviews were in progress. After about half of the potential students interviewed, we went on a tour of the school. The students seemed to enjoy the school. The tour was given by a student and the financial aid lady, but the student seemed to know a lot more about the school than financial aid.

They wanted to move my interview from 1:30pm to 12pm--impossible b/c I was already in route & was too far away. Then they tried to RESCHEDULE it! I declined that 'offer' and said I would get there when I could. There was nothing to eat/snack on as promised in the email. I signed in at 1230; was called to interview at 1240 and had to wait 20 mins on my other interview (there are two per interview) to finish leisurely chatting with a student. I finally entered the interview room around 1pm (let me remind you that they wanted me to interview at 12; what happened??). The interview went ok. After, we had a campus tour and were free to go.

We all got a biochem question in ATP which schocked the hell out of us! They pretty much got their minds set on whether they want you there or not and I was told at the end that they wanted me there and was accepted! the school is great and has so much potential, being that it's gonna be the same as going to PCOM-philadelphia, but it is too young as of now.

During the time others are interviewing, we could walk around, sit-in on a class, or just chat with fellow students. It was great just talking and getting the jitters out. PCOM students were friendly and stopped in. The tour was ok but the guides were busy saying hi to friends who passed by and had private jokes that made no sense to anyone else.

When PCOM interviewed me, I was excited and thoroughly pleased by everything I saw and heard on the day of the interview. Everyone was a community, even with those being interviewed. It as as if we were welcomed into the PCOM spirit. I felt excellent about the interview; I was told my file showed nothing but positive things and hard work and dedication. So, I could not wait for the decision. I was disappointed when wait-listed, but then considered how late I had applied (hence a March interview).

Class size; emphasis on social interaction with other students (yes the instructors nearly tell you you have to interact with your class); small facilities for such a large class; and sheer cost all detract from this college in my new view. On the plus side the students seemed to be friendly, down to earth, good people. The facilities that they have are top of the line.

"Yes, you finally got asked away from the awkward "fishbowl" which is the PCOM waiting room. It can be a very relaxing interview experience if you know your file and you know yourself. It starting by talking about nothing for about five minutes then they commenced with questions, initially asking me about my references. I had three very good letters that were from PCOM alums. If you are really interested in a school I believe this is the best way to help your chances outside of grades and MCATs. They also asked some generic questions like what do you like to do for fun, which I always feel foolish answering. Life is fun. I live. Anything can be fun. Eventually I was able to discuss a DUI, which I unfortunately received during undergrad. It was a great learning experience though and taught me a million different life lessons that I was able to discuss and use to my advantage during the interview. Ultimately, if you are in a similar situation, being truthful and not making excuses for yourself is the best way to conduct yourself.

I only applied to a few schools and got accepted at UNECOM, waitlisted at CCOM and accepted into PCOM so that's where I'm heading. PCOM postmarked my acceptance letter the day of my interview which was great b/c then I didn't have to put a deposit in to UNECOM while waiting to hear back.

"The interview experience was calm. It was my first interview and I was the first to go. Even though there were three interviewers, it was a laid back environment. The admissions counselor continually informs you that this is their opportunity to meet you and not attack you. I really look forward to hearing back from this school. This and UMDNJ are my top choices. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Well the day started off bright and early 8am. Dr. Nichols and a 2nd year took us (11 other people being interviewed) to have breakfast. We all sat down and ate. Dr. Nichols talked about osteopathic medicine and the 2nd year told us the ends & outs of surviving the 1st year. After that we all went down to the "fishbowl" and waited for our interview. Unlike most other posts..our interviews went by quick. PCOM had three sets of interview committees. All interviews were done around 11. After a few of us finished interviewing, we went to a 2nd year lecture. GREAT! Can't Wait! Then a little tour..and the day is over! " More from this Member | Report Response

"You go to breakfast in the morning with the other interviewees. I ate with the student guide and one of the doctors who interviewed us. Then I have to wait around for a few hours because my interview wasn't until 11:30. After I met with my cousin and he showed me around the school. The interview is very laid back, but make sure you know the osteopathic philosphy inside and out, my interviewer was very interested in this." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was great. VERY relaxed, yet thorough. I met with a D.O. and a PhD (both on staff). They questioned me about my application, grades, MCAT, etc. I will note the importance of updating your file. The MCAT scores they saw were lower than the ones I received in October. If I had not had my file updated, I doubt I would've been accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"It began with a tour of the facilities, with a 2nd year student. Next we had lunch and then the interviews started. There were two of us there, and the other guy went first. He was in for about an hour. Then it was my turn. We talked about me for about thirty minutes. Then we talked about DOs, residencies and how to pay for school for about thirty minutes."

"The day began with breakfast in the school's cafeteria. I was lead to the cafeteria by an obviously angry admissions staffer. The interview group had lunch with an obnoxious student (who ripped on every other medical school I applied to) and a professor from the school who was more interested in chatting with the obnoxious student about how cool the first year class was when compared to other classes at PCOM. Following breakfast, we returned to the admissions office for the interview. We were ignored by the admissions staff, but a few students did drop by to say hello. Following the interview, we were lead on a tour by a group of first year students who apparently lifted their personalities from drunken "Real World" characters.

"The interview itself was pretty laid back and calm, although I was a nervous wreck being the first one called in for the interview. I think I stumbled over my words when trying to explain my understanding of the osteopathic philosophy... make sure you know it inside and out, why you want to go into the profession and such. I left the interview feeling horrible about my chances. However, I got the accept
