"Like other people have said, everyone is very very nice. Roger Corbman is awesome. He's honest, straightforward, and does a great job at making you relax. As everyone says, its located in a new industrial park, and is technically a warehouse building. The inside is all brand new, and you don't even know you're inside of one. No compllaints at all about facilities. Great labs. That anatomy lab has a awesome ventilation system so you don't smell any fumes or anything. Students looked happy and were really nice and helpful. The Las Vegas community has accepted them well, all Vegas area hospitals are onboard for students to do rotations. Touro-NV is only the second medical school in the state, UN-Reno only puts out 50 students a year, so the area is MORE than happy to have Touro there. They also created several new residency spots in Vegas, that they couldn't have done with only UN-Reno there. They are a new school, but I think they are quickly going to grow into one of the most respected schools. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Mr. Corbman was very good at making the interview process a pleasant one. The students who joined in to give tours and answer questions were outgoing and eager to answer any questions we had. It seems for the most part, the students were happy with their choice. I thought it was also a good thing that a decision on your file was made no longer than 2 weeks." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has a very good reputation and awesome rotation sites. The Dean used to be the VP for TCOM. The people at TCOM say that Dr. Formen is the best that you can get, he strives for nothing but perfection. Everyone says that the building is a warehouse, this is not the case. Yes it looks like an office building but once inside it is totally MEDICAL SCHOOL BABY!! Very big inside and very state of the art. I think that in 10 years TOURO-Nevada will be one of the biggest Osteopathic schools in the nation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice everyone is to each other. They (including the professors) seem like a close group with open door access to the professors etc. They are an aggresive school with fantastic plans for the future. The demand for physicians is great in Las Vegas, and they are practically begging Touro for more medical students for rotations etc. Roger is great. He really wants you to be happy with you choice of medical school, no matter where it is. The dean is also great and willing to help. The facilities are a work in progress but given the fact that they have been open for only 1.5 years, things are actually pretty nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty and students are REALLY great at Touro. I noticed that the Dean personally knows each and every one of the students and will stop and talk to each of them as he walks through the campus. I also really like Mr. Corbman, the Admissions Director. He was very friendly to the interviewees and did his best to make us feel comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendly and outgoing staff, exam block was underway and many students and several faculty stopped by and talked to us. The Dean came in and really spent some time with the group of interviewees learning about our background, answering questions, etc. Roger Corbman is friendly, outgoing, funny, and really seems to enjoy helping and getting to know the applicants. Family-like atmosphere everywhere at the school. The school seems to operate smoothly for such a short time in business. New facilities: cadaver lab, lecture halls, omm lab all high-tech and brand new. Also, a gym and indoor basketball/volleyball court are nearly complete and will be really nice (Perhaps, the only non-school activity on campus) Most of all, VERY efficient decision by ADCOM. Application to Secondary Application = 2 weeks. Secondary submitted to interview offer = 2 days. Interview on Tuesday, ADCOM met on Thursday, Email of decision on Friday, Letter on Monday. The MD schools I applied at took MONTHS and MONTHS just to process primary, secondary, or make interview decision, let alone decide on Admit/Wait/Reject after interview.

"This school is amazing; absolutely everything during my experience impressed me, and it is now my top choice. The facilities are brand-new, the campus has wireless access and laptop plug-ins in the classrooms, the curriculum is a mixture of the basic sciences and a system based approach; the school also implements case-based and problem-based learning into the curriculum, as well as the OSCE labs (simulated patient assessment laboratories). There is no curve, so you are only competing with yourself in the end. There is a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon coming to practice at TUCOM-NV, so the students will be able to watch his surgeries via closed-circuit TV, and apparently, a number of international physcians will be expected to come as well. All the clinical rotations will also be in NV, and the college plans to open up an occupational therapy program as well as some other masters programs. Touro University is well known internationally and throughout the eastern United States. Henderson is also one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and is a great place to live - everything is clean, and it is a sound place to make a future for oneself given the shortage of doctors in NV. Most importantly, however, everyone was so chill I could not believe it!!!! I love the people.

Mr. Corbman is hilarious. There is a informal enviroment there, and it seems to work well. I personally LOVE the surrounding area, but then again, I grew up in the country.

"The DO students and the PA students really support and help eachother like a close team, which I feel is really important. The faculty are all personable,extremely intelligent, and show sincere concern for all of the student body. Also, part of my family is Jewish so I felt familiar and comfortable around everything, and everyone has major respect for aspects of Jewish culture. The diversity of the student body is great. There is a definite social life outside of the school, which is always a good thing because every med student needs to occasionally unwind and have a beer(or 10) :)The new ortho surgery center is going to be FANTASTIC.

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview itself was more like a rapid-fire session of questions. I went into the interview thinking it would be very conversational, but it was not at all. Both of the people who interviewed me also seemed very disinterested in being there. Also, they must really hate windows because there are literally none except for at the main entrance." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayyyyy too much. The school is essentially a renovated warehouse. The anatomy lab is outdated and only has old projectors to view the lecturer from. There are almost no windows at all, so you are stuck inside what sort of seemed like a prison all day, every day you are there for class. Cafeteria was laughable. OMM lab also was outdated, with only projectors to watch the lecturer from. The library was legitimately the size of a large storage closet. The student who gave us our "campus tour" was an M1 (the interview was in September...) and only had one answer for the 8-10 questions i asked him (not necessarily his fault, but someone more knowledgeable about the school who had been there for more than a month should have been giving the tour.) Also, the interview was only 20 minutes. I flew across the country, spent X hundred dollars, to sit down and talk with two people for 20 minutes. What a joke. During lunch when speaking with the student panel, every single one of them said they chose the school because of its "location", that was the most positive thing any of them said about it. Also, lastly, if you're still reading, if accepted to the school you have only 2 weeks to send in your $2,000 deposit. That's absurd. What I got from that and the rest of the day in general was that they know that is no one's first choice (unless maybe you're from Vegas area), so they trap you by giving you almost no time to make a decision about sending them a ton of money that you will not get back if you decide to go somewhere else later."

They only really asked me about my grades and MCAT scores which are 2 things that I can only explain so much. In my answers, I would bring up my volunteer/clinical experiences in hopes that they would start asking about that, but it didn't happen. I also felt as if one of my interviewers didn't really want to be there...I was just really put off by that. I just got frustrated because I traveled a long way and didn't need to be explaining my grades the entire time....that was something that they had on file already. It would have been more beneficial for everyone if they had asked me more about myself and my experiences because that can mean more than grades in the long run."

The two faculty that interviewed me did not ask any questions but just lectured about how medical school is difficult and how they expect their students to have gotten X grades in Y classes.

TUCOM-CA at least tells you high, medium, low. Forget about traveling for your rotations - a whole year of them are ALL in Nevada. Too bad if there's something interesting you want to do elsewhere. Their budget is based off of the NY school - which does not have a medical school as part of it. That just seems...stupid. One of the interviewers suggested taking a master's program and reapplying....I already had multiple acceptances - clearly, this won't be happening. Seriously, why is this school inviting people to interview if they haven't accepted our stats? Mine are actually pretty decent. Their research opportunities weren't very good at all.

Given the fact that we'd all flown in from various places and were under time constraints to learn about the school, who CARES how much this guy parties? Every student he met in the hall, he'd ask if they were going to come partying with him and his friends. It was irritating and unprofessional. He was pretty knowledgeable about the school, but you had to pin him down to get much more than superficial info from him. The building is in a warehouse, next to an auto mall. "Las Vegas" per se (primarily the center of town and "The Strip") is a good 1/2 hour away, so calling it the "Las Vegas" campus is misleading.

However, the lecture was postponed. We were unaware of the weight of the situation when we walked into the class, but by the dean's tone, I can only assume he was reprimanding those involved with the accusations posted on 2/1/05.

Admissions director really emphasized that each of us should find our match and not force going to any one school--that's great--HOWEVER they require you put down a $2000 deposit two weeks after being accepted...kind of hard to find the right match with that kind of requirement. Also, the interviewer poked fun at me for taking physical education classes in my undergrad for credit (one). It was not only was required by my major but, also a good stress relief and something I will continue to use my whole life to stay healthy and fit and live the osteopathic principle of "wellness". I was a bit offended." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's more of a personal point, but just the lack (through no fault of their own) of confirmed clinical facilities, and some program development issues. I'm sure it will all be resolved and you will get a great medical education, but for me, (especially for the cost) I would prefer more solid program plans." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cold weather." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is new and it is in an area that is currently under heavy construction. There were no definite plans for rotations yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was really chill. Just be yourself and relax! If you've prepped ahead of time you will do fine!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Get there early so you can nab some visitor parking right by the door :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"the student tour leader has a vote on the admissions committee" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing that wasn't already mentioned earlier" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be given a folder full of information and I did not need to bring my own. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the Dean of Admissions, Roger Corbman, had retired. From reading all the SDN feedback, I was really looking forward to meeting him!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really..." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I should probably have eaten breakfast before I got there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the visitor parking isn't for students interviewing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I saw this on here before but didn't take it seriously: eat a big breakfast because you will be very very hungry by lunch time or even your interview! And being hungry is a major distraction, at least for me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It only takes 15 minutes to get to the school from the Strip, my hotel told me to plan for an hour trip (one way)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, SDN covers everything pretty well." More from this Member | Report Response

"How draining the 5 hour drive would be" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you don't rent a car when you go on your interview, it is really hard to get one out to the school to take you to the airport. Although this was one of the first issues addressed for the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they have you there from 8 a.m. until about 2 p.m. and you have lunch at about 1:30p.m., I was so hungry, I thought I was digesting my own organs! Have a big breakfast!" More from this Member | Report Response

"how amazing the school would be! they have an amazing anatomy lab and a large mock physical exam room with patient actors, very impressive!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They interview around 550 students and accept only 135 students. So if you get interviewed you have a 25% chance of acceptance. Their waitlist is around 180 students long & they accept around 60 off the list. " More from this Member | Report Response

"not much, as I relaxed, I began to realize I wanted to be honest with the interviewers and myself, and ended up asking a lot more questions about the school than time alloted. They run a bit disorganized, but I think that a lot of the students thrive in that situation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was way better than I thought it would be. It is not a costco building!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview started at 9 AM, by the time lunch came around at 1 PM I was starving. Get a good breakfast in you so you have plenty of energy and patience to sit through the presentations, tour, and interview sessions." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school is a warehouse. " More from this Member | Report Response

"there is a physician shortage in the area of Las Vegas, which is a big positive for attending Touro" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have so much opportunity opening up in the Las Vegas area with clinical rotations and residency locations. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the admissions team invites almost half of the people who applied to an interview. Therefore, making it ''all the way'' to the interview process doesn't mean you have a great chance getting selected -- only about 3/10 students that interview will get an acceptance" More from this Member | Report Response

"that Vegas is so damn hot!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab was average in my opinion. It didnt look as amazing as the TUN live website made it appear. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The library is very nontraditional - almost everything is available only online. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish I would have had other schools to compare to...this was my first interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the Las Vegas Airport is the craziest/busiest airport ever and if you don't want to miss your flight you better get there at least a few hours in advance, even on a Monday. Also, never trust an airport shuttle guy when he says he'll have you there in 10 minutes, its more like an hour. Lastly, that Nevada is 46th in the nation for physician to patient ratio and that they really want you to practice in Nevada after school." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cab companies in Vegas are always late (some are nice...I left my cell phone in a cab and the guy brought it over)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school was all in one building and eveyone is very close together, this is different than the traditional multi-level medical school with a hospital next door that I have visited." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. No major surprises." More from this Member | Report Response

"DO NOT EVER take a cab to your interview. I sheduled my cab an hour before my interview and it never showed. Do whatever else you can, nut NEVER take a cab." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think I was well prepared...too much time on SDN :) However, I was surprised by the disparity between the comments about the school's wharehouse-like feel and what I experienced. The facilities are great and have a completely medschool feel." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was not as 'easy' as people on SDN had stated. I got a ride back to my hotel with two other interviewees, and they were also grilled during their interviews on the weakest parts of their applications. Also, the school highly recommends taking a course in biochemistry, anatomy, or molecular biology (which is pretty standard I guess), but it almost seemed like a requirement. So try to get a couple of those out of the way if attendng there! " More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have any expectations ahead of time. After leaving, I was very impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Where the School was located" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just relax and be yourself! Absolutely no stress. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, the school is great. Henderson is brown though, but I guess I will get used to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is an old warehouse made into a medical schohol" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I disliked the school so much that there was no point going. Seriously, if I knew of a good way to leave midway thru the day, I would have." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the building didn't look like a UPS building looked like a normal building, but what do you expect when you read about it from the craziness on SDN" More from this Member | Report Response

"I already knew, but the real cost of ~59,000 a year is serious debt. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my second time there so I knew what to expect." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I've been to the Vegas area many, many times before." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Touro-Mare Island has been sending 3rd and 4th year students to Las Vegas for rotations, thus there are already rotations in place for Touro-Nevada also." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would really enjoy the school and the faculty. I must admitt it, it wasn't at the top of my list but after the interview etc, I would definately consider it as a top choice. It really shocked me that this new school has developed this much so quickly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I knew the class was nearly full, but wish I had known that they already had 150 people on the waitlist. As already mentioned in other feedback, the school can be difficult to find. If I had not driven around the night before to locate it, then I would have been late like a couple of other interviewees. Vegas offers a lot, but the area around the school doesn't really seem to offer much. No food on campus, but a sandwhich was provided at the end of the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The roster for next year is already full. In fact, 115 students have been admitted and made deposits for 108 spots. Also, 150+ are already on the waiting list. Why did I pay for an airline ticket and hotel? Furthermore, 8 more applicants are scheduled for next week, if one of you reads this before Tuesday I suggest changing your ticket and cnacelling you reservations as soon as possible. The trip will be pointless. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How difficult it is to get to the campus by taxi. They don't know where the school is yet because it is new." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school requires a $2,000 deposit within two weeks if you are accepted to their program" More from this Member | Report Response

"No surprises. Everything was even better than expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviews were a 2 on 1 deal. It was a little intimidating for me at first because I was used to 1 on 1 interviews. EVERYONE is rating you right down to the secretary--the admissions director told us that!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school-day seemed like another day of going to the office. Study rooms aren't sufficient to accomodate the current class, much less 2 classes at a time. They want to put PA's, optomitrists, and RN's in the same building, but pray tell where they all should park? Where the campus is, even though it's called "Las Vegas." How polluted the air was there, as the plane descended through a dense haze of tan/rust colored smog, I wondered how the asthmatics in LV were doing." More from this Member | Report Response

"That you could stay with a student" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was invited to interview Nov. 29th originally, but my notice was lost in the USPS mail (how reliable they are), but fortunately, I called in January and got an interview set up. There are 78 deposits in right now, and up to 108 (can be pushed to 120) will be accepted. I wish I would've had my interview back in December so I wouldn't have been interviewing for so few spots left. I really want to get into this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"What? They're somehow affiliated with the Jewish religion? Guess I shoulda picked that up somewhere along the way, not that it matters with me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt well informed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the students hosts are so receptive to applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"That some of the students seem really immature, particularly the guys. Also, the school is 75% male." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to stay to Sunset Station, because you can't help but gamble." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have much time to prepare for the meeting however, No Surprises! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The Fact that you have to send a $2000 deposit 2 weeks after your acceptance, but the cool thing is that they will work with you. (TO AN EXTENT, not 6 months, but a couple weeks)" More from this Member | Report Response

"You can stay with one of the students for the visit...might be easier than getting a hotel" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish i knew not to stay at the Holiday Inn express...if you are relying on a taxi, prepare to arrive late to the interview...not only were they late in picking me up (i called them 40 mins. ahead of time by the way)...but when they got to my hotel, they didn't even know where touro was!!! i arrived very aggrevated and flustered and I was the "late one" the entire day...the people at the school understood though, but it doesn't exactly make you look good. after such an aweful day, i ended up getting expected (they put me through the most hell out of any of the other interviewees). i'm still debating whether or not to go there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known that you could stay with a student. I would have liked to have experienced the student life at this school outside of classroom hours. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have known not to play blackjack because I helped pay for a new casino." More from this Member | Report Response

"If I had known that my interview date was the beginning of the exam block, I would've scheduled it on a different date. I wanted to sit in on one of the lectures." More from this Member | Report Response

"see above" More from this Member | Report Response

"That when the acceptances come out, you have 2 weeks to reply with $2000. It makes it hard for me to consider TUCOM-NV since I can save mucho dinero by staying in state (although I won't find out until 2/1/05)" More from this Member | Report Response

"i knew it before hand, but you don't really understand until you get there how nice and welcoming the faculty and students are. the student host i stayed with was so nice, and was so eager to meet all the interviewees and hang out with us and answer any questions. i have been to other interviews where i met a few students but didn't really get a feel of them. at this interview, the students hung out with us during the breaks and were really nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the person interviewing me was not a practicing physician, she just graduated ." More from this Member | Report Response

"We could stay with the students... There is CHW in Nevada." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school only gives you two weeks to decide if you want to attend after acceptance letters are mailed out. I would have scheduled my interview latter in the season." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview format is not a panel like at TUCOM-MI, but rather is a two on one." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got waitlisted, which i was actually thrilled to hear because of their B.S. deposit time/amount. What's sad is if i got accepted literally anywhere else, i wouldn't go there. And if i only got accepted there, I'd go knowing I was going to transfer after year 1." More from this Member | Report Response

"TOURO NEVADA IS A GREAT SCHOOL. IF ACCEPTED, I WOULD SERIOUSLY CONSIDER GOING THERE" More from this Member | Report Response

"great school, great location, sub-par facilities but curriculum seems successful and they are focused on serving community" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like I was drilled at the interview. It wasn't overly stressful, but they definitely address any weaknesses in your application you may have, so prepare for that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great city. Give it a chance." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a stress interview! I was put on the defensive right off the bat and did not get many softball questions, be prepared for some pressure and be ready to advocate for your strong points. KNOW YOUR APP" More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty, staff, and students all seem very happy to be there. The faculty spends a lot of time focusing on the students and supporting them in anyway that they can. Seems like a great program!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoyable experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"It seems like a perfectly good school, I really like their exam system (block style, similar to the boards), and they have a good match list with a lot going into specialties. I didn't like the campus/building much but that is relatively low on my list of priorities and I'm told it grows on you. The interview itself was a little odd, but everyone was consistently friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school exceeded my expectations, and more. The students seem really tight knit and the faculty was super supportive (they have an open door policy). I could definitely see myself here and hope I get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"great schoool. they did a lot... I was impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with lots of potential, and they make sure you know about it. Not just promoting Osteo Med but how they help the community thru the sciences. Make sure you have time to visit the Strip afterwards - it's a great feeling once interviews are over." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school was not my cup of tea - but it may be yours. I found it overpriced for no reason - there are no scholarships, no extra degrees offered and no international rotations. Plus they make you buy a Dell ( I am an apple user). Plus I personally am not a big fan of Vegas - without casinos, there would be nothing there." More from this Member | Report Response

"very laid-back interview atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very VERY skeptical in coming here for interview. I was very close to declining their offer, but I am so glad I went. A very positive impression for this school. I would very much love to attend this school now" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school after going on the interview. I was not too interested before but afterwards I wanted to go here. Good residency placement and good labs and facilities. Pretty happy students and a good testing schedule. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Really liked the school and the people, but not sure about the location. It was HOTTTTT!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"If I wound up going here, I'd be okay with it. Better options out there, though, at least for me. Still, the interview gave me an excuse to hang out in Vegas for the weekend." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is really relaxed--though I personally was a bit stressed because I was ill--and even though I did not know the answer to some of the questions that they asked me, I was honest, and I got in despite everything!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was short...much shorter than the other applicants which made me nervous. One of the interviewers was either non-responsive or frowning for most of the interview which made me extremely stressed. I was hoping it would have been more relaxed. I thought I did terrible, but I was accepted, so maybe I am a bad judge of my own performance. I would suggest this: if the interviewer seems very formal, answer very formally. Do not try to lighten the situation (which is a bad habit I have). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Looks like there are really good professors that are enthusiastic about your education. The students seem very positive about the school as well. I thought I did horribly during my interview, but I got accepted, so don't stress!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I LOOOOOVVVVEEEEEE touro!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was quite impressed with the school before interviewing here, and even moreso after interviewing here. I loved the entire day and hope I am accepted here soon!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very excited to attend here. TUCOM NV 2013!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They placed a lot of emphasis on biochemistry and having taken sciences courses. During the interview they asked me how I did in biochem and were impressed that I had a lot of science hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are very friendly and seemed well composed for medical students. The blocked schedules create an environment where you are studying extra hard temporarily, but can somehwhat relax after big tests." More from this Member | Report Response

"Roger Corbman, Dean of Admissions is fantastic. Has a genuine interest in helping you decide what school will be a good fit. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Do not think that you have to stay in Henderson. Save some money and get a deal at one of the many hotels in Vegas. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Really the only disadvantages to the school is its newness and the desert region. I don't like Vegas..." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is a new school, but I really like the way that they are doing things, especially with the expansion. They seem to listen to what the students want. I thought Roger was great, and he is willing to work with you to find the best school for you, even if it isn't Touro." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's an upcoming school. There are lots of opportunities for growth and expansion. They want serious, dedicated students since they are close to the Vegas strip so makes sense that they want to let their students know everything up front. I think it's a good school. Basically here's the layout of interview: Enter building, sign in and wait for Roger to get you. (Roger is really an awesome guy!). Walk to interview room w/ Roger pointing out some areas. Talk about the school. Financial aid talk. Dean comes in to talk about school's mission. He asks you who you are and where you're from. Resume talk w/ Roger as needed. Interviews start. Half the group gets interviewed and half go on tour for an hr. Then switch groups and when everyone gets back, there's a kosher lunch--sandwiches. You will know your interview order/time in the folder they give you. It's all outlined. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students there were very nice. If it weren't for the students, I would have had a crappy time, but overall not impressed with the school or the interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"I hope to see everyone in the fall!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great place and it would be a great change of scenery for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school is awesome. Some people complain about the appearance of this 'Costco-looking' building. I was able to see past the plain exterior and see how great the facilities were inside. I have been accepted here and it is in my top 3." More from this Member | Report Response

"loved it! " More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT SCHOOL and STRESS-FREE Interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"great impression, generally a low key day, would love to go there" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a great school. It is one big building, but they are adding another building before the next entering class starts. They are also trying to start a veterinary program, and the nursing students, as well as PA students are in the same building with DO students. The curriculum is split into two semesters: 3 blocks/semester. Each block is 6 weeks long. OMM meets once a week on Tuesday for a 2 hour lab and 1 hour lecture - the class is split with about 65 students and 8 professors during OMM lab. Exams are held for 1 week after the 6th week - anywhere from 6-9 exams. Overall, a great school and a great place to live. Housing is pretty cheap, too." More from this Member | Report Response

"They make sure the entire process is laid back and stress free. This school has a lot going for it even though it's a new campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was the best interview session I've ever had. Both interviewers were genuine, polite, and asked challenging questions. They wrote copious notes about my responses during the answer period. They had definitely read my file." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was very pleasant and not as stressful as i had thought. roger corbman was extremely friendly as well as my interviewers and students who gave the tour of the school. it started at 9am and ended at 130pm. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a very positive experience! The interview was very relaxed and non-threatening. My interviewers were kind and laid back. The faculty and staff are very welcoming and comforting and the current students are enthusiastic. The campus is small and the facilities are nice. I found out that I was accepted the next day and am excited about attending." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my interview day, but was sad that Roger wasn't there. The students were awesome, especially our tour guide. The facilities are nice (HUGE anatomy lab) with only 4 to a cadaver. All in all, a nice institution." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great experience, find a cheap room on hotwire.com, rent a car and stay for an extra day and have some fun! The interview day was relaxed and fun - due to Roger Corbman (director of admissions). Interviewes were polite, seemed engaged, took notes and were generally nice folks. I did find it odd that I interviewed with a faculty member and the Director of Financial Aid..." More from this Member | Report Response

"All and all, it was a pretty straightforward day. You show up and go through the usual stuff about the school and all of the things that they offer. The tour was pretty standard, but the students are very proud and enthusiastic about their school. My two interviewers were pretty benign, and nothing really came out of left field with them. In general, the school was much more impressive than I thought and I left there feeling very excited about the opportunity to attend!" More from this Member | Report Response

"i had one interviewer who was just so sweet and soft-spoken. the other one scared the sh*t out of me. it was not the most laid-back interview. but don't go out of your way to prep. like someone else mentioned, it was open file but it sure didn't feel that way. i actually brought up a failed class on my transcript that they should have asked me about if they had even looked that hard (yes, i realize that was a dumb thing to do, i was trying to emphasize a point and that info kind of vomited itself up). but i did get the impression that they are a very very serious school. outside of the actual interview, roger is awesome and so very thorough. i can see where someone could have said he gives them a car-salesman vibe, but you know what i'd rather see that than an unfriendly, tight-lipped person. there's great opportunity in nv. heard back from the office like four days afterwards. that in itself earns bonus points."

Roger Corbman is as advertised. He is a very funny man that repeats himself but, makes you feel at home and at ease. The day went very fast and before you knew it you were out the door heading back home. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, the day was quite pleasant. The head of admissions Roger Corbman is a character -- always smiling and making jokes to help put the interviewees at ease. The dean of the school was transplated from UNTHSC to come to Touro, and he's very upbeat about the program as well. The day was well-organized and ran smoothly -- even the boxed lunches were decent. If you have in mind a medical school that has a campus - then Touro is NOT the place for you though - its just one building. Also, because Nevada is almost in last place in the 50 students for doctor/patient ratio the school REALLY wants you to graduate and then practice there as well, aka stay in Nevada. The interview itself was extremely relaxed.... but again, other people had really difficult questions - so it could be either. Also, one of the interviewers made a strong mention about how well physicians are paid in the area -- so if you like money..... then attending school at Touro is the way to go ;)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Roger Corbman is awesome. I wish all schools had an admissions director like him. I would go to Touro just because of him. The school seemed very small, kind of like a high school. Its in a big warehouse right next to a car dealer. I think I would prefer a bit more of a traditional academic setting. The students were enthusiastic for the most part. They talked very highly about all of their instructors, especially the OMM program. I was impressed with the OMM professors and facilities. All of the students were unhappy about the new 80% required attendance policy, however. There were about 10 applicants on our interview day. Two recommendations gleaned from observing my fellow interviewees: 1 - don't bring your significant other to your interview, even if Roger says its okay, that's just weird 2 - make sure you have a suit and that it actually fits properly. Getting your pants hemmed to the actual length of your legs is not very expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"THe school is a good school if you like a small setting and not the big university life like you'd see at des moines. THe faculty and the staff are more than helpful and they have a open door policy. The facitlities are top notch as its a new school. They obviously lack the social life aspect as the school is in the middle of nowhere but you'll find ways to entertain yourself. Roger corbman is very helpful and funny. he'll be your go to guy at the school. be nice to him if you get an interview. the guy has a lot of weight. All in all the interview is very relaxed. they'll grill you on your grades if you have a lot of C's. but its very laid back and relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty good. Everyone talks about Roger Corbman, and he is really nice and breaks the ice well. Very good at his job of getting the interviewees to relax. However the Dean, Dr. Forman, is great as well. He is very open about the school and everything going on. He sells the school on its mission and goals, and he does not sell himself. I think going to school under a Dean like him will be something all the students at Touro look back upon and realize how lucky they were. Regarding the actual interview, so conversational I had a hard time remembering what questions I was asked. I was chatting with the female interviewer on the way to the room, and we walked in already in a discussion completely unrelated to medicine. Very laid back & friendly. Other school should take notes. If you want to find out about the prospective students, get them to open up by talking about other interests, then sneak the semi-masked medical related question in there unexpectedly. You'll avoid those cookie-cutter answers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I think it was a very good experience. I think Roger Corbman is hilarious and was incredibly amiable to each of us, his goal was mainly to calm our nerves. The dean was also incredibly honest and upfront about the challenges that the school might confront from time to time because it is still relatively new. However, it was apparent that a lot of growth has occurred over just these past years. It's also very apparent that the faculty here try their best to assist their students as much as possible, starting w. an ''open door policy.'' Overall, the school has amazing facilities (check out their anatomy lab), great faculty, and suburban feel surrounding the university. I predict and really believe that this school and its graduates will eventually make a very positive impact on the community of nevada, opening doors for their students all over Nevada and exposing them to very interesting cases and possibly rotations. Everyone including the interviewers try their best to emphasize a very conversational setting. I can definitely vouche and say that they did a successful job accomplishing their goal.

"It was my first interview so I was reaaaaaally nervous! I think it went well but I won't know until Friday. They do an excellent job of making you feel at ease and by the time your interview rolls around you're ready to ''have a conversation''.

He emphasized that the interview was meant to be a conversation and to just be yourself. The Students seemed to really like the school and the faculty seemed very nice and acommadating. However, they REALLY want students who will stay in the area after med school. Once they found out I was from the east coast they grilled me about the reasons I wanted to attend Touro."

"In the morning, tensions were high; students bunched up in groups and we were trying to get a feel for each other. Eventually, the tension eased up once Roger Corbman introduced himself and led us to the admissions office. We were informed about Touro University and its roots of Touro College. The dean also spent about 1 hour with us and really displayed how much he cared about teaching and advancing the experience of the students. Thereafter, some people were led to individual interviews while others met with current OMS students. After, we were led on a tour and finally had lunch with our colleagues. Overall, if you like the hustle and bustle and antagonistic nature of Pre-med lifestyle where it is ''kill or be killed,'' this is definitely not the school for you. However, if you like a place where the staff as well as your peers will push you to your limit and help you along the way, then definitely this is a place for you."

"The school was very unprofessional. (While the director of admissions was being redundant about useless points, one of the students at the school was making funny gestures behind him).

But I did learn a lot about the school and I can use that to compare with other schools. Roger Corbman is a great person as you guys know, very on top of things, cordial and friendly. I was told by another school that you have to setup your clinical rotation years so its entirely up to you. If its true, take that as you will, I personally feel its a negative."

"The interview was pretty laid back, mostly conversation except for one of my interviews, who just seemed skeptical the whole time. They stress continually that biochem and anatomy are hard for most first years, and even though I've had them both and teach anatomy on cadavers to undergrads, my interviewer still seemed skeptical that I was prepared enough. Henderson has no seasons, except for hot and really hot. If you want a campus like feel, and have statistics of a longstanding institution, this is not the place. But everyone is great there and it would be an excellent education. They do contradict themselves in that they want you to pick the right school even if its not them, yet they only give you two weeks to decide and put down $2000 if you're offered a spot. Also, if you get put on the wait list and you don't have strong MCAT scores, then forget it - last year they ranked the wait list by MCAT scores." More from this Member | Report Response

"They asked me the usual: Why doc? Why DO? Why our school? It seemed like they were talking to me most of the time. It was laid back. Someone knocked, the phone rang, and the fax machine went off.

For the record, they were feeling really back about all of this, and hence they didn't grill me with any ethics or health-care policy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall experience was good. I was really nervous and left with a really mixed impression of the school.

"This was my first interview (I applied late), so I was really nervous. But the first thing that happened when I got to the school was I met other interviewees who were waiting in the lobby. I was joking with them about the SDN posting that said the surrounding area goes "Toyota Dealer, Honda Dealer...med school", and just as I finished saying that, Roger Corbman came out and (I think) heard me! Anyway, we met in a small room and were given a presentation on the school, and introduced ourselves. My interview was supposed to be at 9:30 AM, but didn't happen until 11:30 AM, which threw me off a bit. I was REEALLY nervous for the interview (again it was my first one). The two faculty that interviewed me were obviously highly intelligent and intensely serious. They definitely made me feel like I was not going to get in, but I did! I got the feeling the interview experience was so intense because it was late March, and they were accepting most people by that point, but wanted interviewees to feel lucky if they did get accepted. But I'm mistrustful by nature :o). Overall, the school was really impressive. It's curriculum is solid, the faculty are knowledgable, and the students seemed great. The student who gave us a tour of the campus was the nicest guy. I did get into the school, and am happily accepting their offer even though I was accepted elsewhere too.

The reason it was 40 minutes long is that the interviewer and I were getting along very well, and just ended up talking that long. At the end, he was even telling me Vegas would be an excellent area for my father and sister to move their practices and how we should look into investing in a condo. At the end of the interview, he told me I interviewed very well and he hoped to see me there next fall. And just as a note, I'm by no means an exemplary candidate as far as stats go, I have about 5 C's in science classes. After Nova, this is my top pick.

"Based on other comments on this site, I was a bit leery about my interview at TUCOM-LV. However, I have to say I came away very impressed. My biggest misgiving about the school is that it is so new. The very first graduating class is only in their second year right now, which means no one has taken boards yet. This makes it hard to gauge whether the school is doing a good job with their academic program. HOWEVER, I will say that the fact that the school is so new means there are HUGE opportunities there to help build the school and make it into something for the future. Clubs, outreach programs etc, that you might find already established at other schools are just waiting for students to come along and put them together...which seems like a very unique experience to be able to have. Plus, as the only medical school in LV, all the hospitals in the area are taking /planning to take the students for third and fourth year rotations. I'd say to ignore the complaints about the warehouse-like building...even though it looks funky from the outside, the inside is huge and they have all the facilities you'd expect from a medical school...including two lecture halls, anatomy and histology labs, basketball court, and a big gym.

The interview was low stress and converstaional - relax and enjoy sharing your background and experiences with the interviewers.

Be aware that anyone you meet at the school may be involved in evaluating you! They deefinately read your file and ask you questions right out of your application - Know your application! There was an error on the way that one of my classes was recorded or processed and, thankfully, they asked me about it - my file showed me short credit hours for the English hours requirement.

Also, it seems that parking will be impossible next year. There is no way they have enough spaces, look at the parking lot and see for yourself.

We even got lunch which was good as I definitely heard several stomachs growling." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt surprisingly more calm than I had expected due to my exposures to the students before the interview. The interview is a process that everyone has to go through. I think that if you prepare yourself well, you will do fine because questions that were asked were only to evaluate why they should accept you as a student." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back process, friendly faculty and students. Much enthusiasm from all about the program and growth of the school. Worried about the lack of programs at the moment and the fact that there is no indicator of how well students will do on boards. Las Vegas could be a strange place to live..."

"This was my first interview, so I was very nervous. But everyone there is extremely friendly and laid back. Weather is always nice, but it does get up to the triple digits in the summer. The campus is literally one giant, one-story building. It's kinda sad that you may not see the outside during the entire day of classes and such. Despite the campus, the school is still good." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a positive experience. I liked the speech about needing to choose the school where you will be the happiest. Staff and students were very welcoming and enthusiastic and really wanted to sell the school to you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had already heard things about this school before the interview so I was pretty stoked to get this interview. I guess I was a bit worried about the idea that this is a new school without an establish history but I dont think that is going to be a problem. I would really love to attend this school."

"It was OK. The interviewers made me a little uneasy, even though they were very polite." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had two ladies interview me, and both were absolutely awesome! The experience was very conversational, and although the interviewers did ask a few general questions you would expect, they really tried more to inquire about my personality rather than all of the leadership/extracurricular activities I've done. I was commended several times throughout the interview on everything from my writing to my speaking skills, desire to become a physician, and my knowledge of the current crises in medicine, something that made me very relaxed, yet encouraged all at the same time. It was very flattering. I couldn't have asked for anything else (well, except the acceptance, of which I hope is coming soon, lol). " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was unnerving. I was a little disappointed because I didn't feel that the interviewers got to know me as a person as much as I would have liked them to." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers were relaxed and to the point. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was fine. The faculty and students I spoke with really want this school to be a success. I feel this goal will be reached." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very laid back, especially considering the students had exams coming up. We were initially greeted by several students then by the director of admissions. The morning consisted of short information sessions about financial aid, housing, etc. The interview followed, followed by a tour of the school, then lunch. The entire time students dropped in to say hi, congratulate and give good luck." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was good overall and I liked the school. I don't plan to attend this school however b/c of the immaturity of some of the students. I felt uncomfortable when talking to some of the male students(particularly one) and would not want to attend med school in that environment. The rest of the students were fine. I don't mean to sound like I don't like to have fun b/c I do but the behavoir from one student really went too far." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the tour of the school and had a great experience interacting with the students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it went well. All questions were about my history, academia, and experiences. My MCAT score came up! Everything was relative and I felt they were doing a great job. I came exactly on time and naturally I felt rushed and nervous. The interviewers put me at ease and I felt very comfortable after a few minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience, they brought food for lunch and truly encouraged a positive and non-competitive attitude and instead made a point that the whole school is based on a helping and comforting attitude. Everyone was so extremely nice. Loved it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really impressed with how friendly everyone was. I consider myself an outgoing person and could easily see myself meshing with everyone at this school. There is also an open-door policy from what I gathered from the students to speak with any of the professors, faculty, finacial aid, etc. This is not a school (NV) that has a great history, but is rather in the process of creating a great history." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great time. Everyone was friendly and happy to be there. Students were stopping by, hanging out, open and friendly even though they had tests coming up at the end of the week. The Dean stopped by and chatted with us, the Director of Admissions was open and welcoming, some of the other instructors stopped by as well. Everyone was just lovely. One of my interviewers ended up being called in that morning to sit in due to the original interviewer having a family emergency so the new interviewer didn't have time to read my file (which i forgot when the first question was, introduce yourself and tell me about yourself) but in the end, it felt more like i was having a conversation with the people interviewing me then an interview. The second interviewer who had come to get me really put me at ease on my was to the interview room and on the way back. It was very low stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"We were greeted by students while waiting in the lobby before the start of the day. They were really friendly and eager to chat with us. Mr. Corbman was really nice too. The facilities are nice. I was impressed with the clinical exam rooms, anatomy lab (well ventilated!), wireless all over the campus. There is no cafeteria because all they can serve is Kosher food. The library may appear as if its lacking many things because there are a few books and many computers inside; but if you think about it, everything is going electronic anyway. Because its a new school they are still developing their rotations as well as many other things. I asked if they are going to have research opportunities after the first year during the summer but they said "we are in the process of talking with UNLV." Also, as a pioneering student you can set up new clubs and organizations considering there are only a couple as of this time. THe facultly really listen to the students and help them with their requests. The incoming class is going to be 100 (versus 77 of the first class). If you like a school that is new, has a small class size, and all that jazz, Touro NV is a good choice. Of course, you won't know exactly how well they will prepare you on boards and what hospitals will think about you when interviewing for residencies considering you went to a new school. So with all choices you wil make its a gamble! (no pun intended)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience, I learned a lot about the school and a lot about myself! I left with no unanswered questions! " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was excellent. I'm actually torn between this school and my first choice COMP now after seeing and meeting everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was having the worst day of my life on this day...i was late to the interview, my hotel sucked, the interviewers were mean and i just wanted to go home the entire time...God knows how the hell I got accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a great experience. As mentioned many times on this site, the students are super enthusiastic and very passionate about the school and osteopathic medicine. The interview was very laid-back and relaxed, more like a conversation than an interrogation. I felt that they wanted to get to know me during the interview instead of rallying off a checklist of questions from paper. The curriculum and potential of the school is outstanding. It being their first year in operation, I was very impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good, I felt comforable " More from this Member | Report Response

"pleasant and educational" More from this Member | Report Response

"As many people have already posted previously, my interview was also very relaxed. Both of my interviewers really wanted to get to know me more in depth. They made the whole process easy and even enjoyable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the people at the school were fantastic! They were exceptionally helpful and tried to answer all the questions they could. It seemed as if they really were interested in recruiting you not like some other schools that make it seem like you are solely competing for them." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm really excited about this school. As I said earlier, the current students are very enthusiastic and truly nice people. The class cohesion seems really great--you have to see it for yourself. The interview itself is not too stressful. If you know yourself, you're good to go. " More from this Member | Report Response

"it was great...im going to go here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was an overall positive experience that prepared me well for the following interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the experience. I was nervous, but felt I hid it well. I practiced many sample questions before hand and I hope it didn't seem like I was reading from a script when answering at the interview. Just relax!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is new and the students and staff were incredibly friendly. There are a few wrinkles to work out in the curriculum being a new school. For only being in their first year I was very impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"TUCOM-NV really impressed me considering that it is in its first year of operation. The faculty seems very accomodating and the students are obviously excited and happy to be there... I met the student body president and he was outgoing and personable as were all the students that took time out of their day to say hello to us... " More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Change a lot. 1. "We believe a 20 minute interview is enough to get to know you." A) No, it's not B) That's so disrespectful to students who travel from so far and spend so much money to be there for the day. I could have had a skype interview and you would have gotten the same impression of whether or not i was a "normal person". 2. The lady leading the interview day, Ms. Kate Snow if I remember correctly, was incredibly kind, personable, talkative and knowledgeable about the school and surrounding area (being a local, duh). She deserves a raise. With that being said, she should not be on the admissions board. I understand why it would seem like a good idea for her to be after talking to interviewees in the more relaxed setting throughout the day, but here's what really happened. Once she told everyone she was on the admissions board and would be helping make decisions, every student there immediately changed their demeanor and became a suck-up towards her. Talking to the other interviewees throughout the day and then seeing them talk to her or in a group with her was a night and day difference. Everyone felt fake and it kind of felt like i was in a play the entire time i was there because of this." More from this Member | Report Response
