"1. The pervasive sense of community. Everyone is just so damn friendly. 2. The gross anatomy lab has a computer at each cadaver with software that lets you look at X-rays, CT scans, pictures of sections, pictures of an expert dissection, and pictures from a textbook of the part you are working on, and it is all linked together and is very easy to use. Apparently this is unique to the school, and it really helps your learning, and the school is really proud of it, as it was locally produced. They are even selling it to other schools. 3. They are very flexible with the curriculum. They tweak it every year and listen to student feedback. One of my interviewers said that this is one of the advantages of a smaller institution; it is more mobile in that positive change can happen faster and easier than at a larger, academic university type school. 4. The admissions office staff is awesome, much nicer than at other schools. They sit down one-on-one with every applicant and make sure that everything in your application is correct. The admissions director happened to interested in my current job and I sat in his office for half an hour just talking about it. 5. Professionalism is stressed a lot. The first year students write their own code of conduct to follow during the four years. 6. The school just built a new research building. 7. Stayed with a student and they were great."

One student approached me as I was walking between interviews, and actually stopped to introduce himself, shake my hand, ask where I was from. Everyone was giving interview tips, etc on the tour. Lunch with the students was relatively informal and they were eager to answer all of our questions. My first interviewer was incredibly friendly, and even gave me his email address so that I could come back to shadow him. My second interviewer was a little tough at first but when it came time to ask him questions, he warmed up and we ended up chatting the interview into the hour mark." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school is on top of a hill in Fort Worth and the view is very nice, and there is a very low crime rate there.

The faculty is also approachable and very involved with research. By the end of the interview you feel like you are a part of the family. They not only have one of the best anatomy labs but the school also spent 200Gs on a manikin that responds exactly as a human would in different situations that you can work on using IVs, meds, etc. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy labs, they pay for your board review course, the location of the school, the general attitude of the student body i.e. not overly competitive" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have a great anatomy lab. I didn't find that they forced either the osteopathic philosophy or the manipulative medicine down my throat, although they were thorough in their explanation of both. They were very intent on convincing me that the training I was going to receive was on par with what I would receive at an allopathic institution." More from this Member | Report Response

"Gross anatomy lab, PTR rooms, really cool campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Let's say where do I begin... They have just installed a computerized anatomy lab where each group has a computer next to their cadaver. Instead of messing up your textbook, all the dissecting and other information is right there on the computer. This year, they are going to sale the program to the students (small fee) so that they can study at home without feeling the need to come in on weekends to the lab. The just also installed a new simulation lab with two simulators. I was very impressed with how medical students will be able to practice on these devices under different situations. The school had a completely friendly atmosphere. Everyone knew everyone else. I ran into three students while walking to my interviews, and all three went out of their way and told me good luck and made small talk. Lunch… I thought it was really nice how they allowed us to choose what we wanted off the menu from Four Star Coffee. They placed the order ahead of time, so it was ready as soon as we arrived. The students who lead the tour were really genuine and seemed to enjoy taking us to lunch and giving us a tour of the facilities. What also was impressive was while they were taking us around they ran into like three professors who knew them personally, and also spoke to our group and asked how we were doing. My interviewers were great. I think my first one he tried to ask questions already on the interview feedback site. However, once the interview started rolling, it became laid back, and I was really impressed with my interviewer and how easy it was to talk to him. My second interviewer was great also. She was really easy to talk to and seemed really interested in my application. Parking was close and free!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"TCOM is the only medical school in the nation with a digital anatomt lab. Their USMLE pass rate is similar to the national average for allopathic schools.

They told us that most DO students have to take 2 sets of boards- the USMLE and COMLEX, which would involve extra study, money, and headache. Also, TCOM has a long school year with almost no time off." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer (PhD) discouraged me from research while in med school... Overall, everything was great though" More from this Member | Report Response

"The growing class size will have an impact on students until the new facilities with larger classrooms are built." More from this Member | Report Response

"There's nothing really special about the school except for the plasma screens they have in the anatomy lab. I am not impressed with the $150K of debt a typical TCOM student has after four years. I thought it would be cheaper if you stay in state. I guess not." More from this Member | Report Response

"First interviewer very flat." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer. He was an OMM specialist (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine) and seemed like he had seen enough applicants with little or no first-hand D.O. experience. He was very aggressive from the beginning of the interview, asking if I was a Bulls... artist (but said it as a statement) and why I didn't marry the mother of my child (even though I did, was wearing my wedding band, and mentioned the words "my wife" 2 or 3 times in my personal statement), and also mentioned TWICE that there had been a "D.O. in my family since 1913" and pointed out his wall o' D.O. forefathers (also twice). This type of questioning continued until the final 5 minutes of the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The teaching hospital near the school is closing their doors. But rest assured there are other hospitals located near by." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers seemed completely disinterested and probably had not looked at my file" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I was just a bit disappointed that one of the teaching hospitals located right across the street from the school had closed. It's a private hospital, not affiliated with the school (except that it allows students, residents, etc to come in and learn)... We were assured that this just means a slightly farther commute to their many other teaching facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"The shortness of my first interview; I am not sure if he got a good feel from me" More from this Member | Report Response

"The financial aid presentation. The presenter rushed through everything, like he wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. Also, some individuals kept using the phrase "If you are lucky enough to get in..." Not everyone, just a couple of people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too much. My hotel was right next to a train track which had a train every 1/2 hour all night and all morning long. Don't stay at Ramada or Fairfield if you are a light sleeper!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They keep comparing themselves to MD and the whole day consists of showing how they are better than or equal to MDs." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really...the 2nd interviewer wasn't AS friendly...more "question and answer" compared to the conversational laid-back style of my 1st interviewer..." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was hard to know where to go. They give a sheet with your schedule - Your interviews are listed with a building and a room number but they don't tell you how to get there. My second interviewer's office was behind a double set of doors, and I never would have found it if I hadn't have met someone in the hall to help me. The interview wasn't even in his office - We ended up in a really small and hot room on a different floor entirely. Just seemed a little unorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had the impression that a few of the people here had a very minor inferiority complex about how some in the medical profession look down on DOs." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers I could not get a good read on (the psychologist). It was frustrating not getting any response to my answers other than,ok, and then move on to the next question. My second interview was MUCH better and much more conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview questions were very theoretical and not very personalized. Except for the question mentioned above, none of the questions really asked about my experiences or unique qualities. Instead they focused on general questions like why medicine, how do you solve problems, how do you work in a team, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers was a jerk. (He's a surgeon so it comes with the turf). He had a meeting to go to and so I was rushed out in 15 min. He barely asked me any questions and did not give me enough time to ask him all the questions I had. Second interviewer was great though." More from this Member | Report Response

"The 2nd year med students giving tour had no concept of time (weren't even wearing watches) and they drug us around the campus until seven minutes prior to 1st interview. No real impact but it was so unconscious of them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, some of the students seemed unhappy to be there, but then again it was a cold, rainy day. One of my scheduled interviewers was not there that day and I was getting a little nervous, but they had another faculty member interview me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. There were 9 candidates in my group interviewing and all seemed to have positive interview experiences which made it difficult to really 'scale' how things truly went. " More from this Member | Report Response

"none" More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely no research has been performed to demonstrate osteopathic medicine. It might work--they just have never proved it in documented, published clinical trials. Once osteopathy is proven effective or ineffective, the school should convert to an MD program (and retain osteopathy if it works). I am also discouraged by the fact that lower tier schools conciously perpetuate the myth that highly ranked schools are "cutthroat"." More from this Member | Report Response

"we didn't discuss financial aid options" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers seemed to think that I would not take the school seriously in my match list, and kept telling me that if I was going to go there I may be disappointed.

"Hmm...I was kinda intimidated by the interviewers more than I thought" More from this Member | Report Response

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

There are more research opportunities than I expected. The faculty also is better than even the high expectations that I had." More from this Member | Report Response

"There's no continental breakfast, eat before you get there. Also, there is a long stretch of time in the morning (if your first interview is at 8am) where you have nothing to do but sit around. They tell you you can just walk around campus and explore independently, but honestly, I don't think you'd get much out of that unless you got to sit in on a class or something (which we couldn't do, there were tests going on that day)."

"That Texas will pay for 2.5 years (150 hours) of medical school for veterans going to a state school under the Hazelwood act. Wow!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had some friends from undergrad there. Also, TCOM ranks applicants soon after the interview. The dual DO/ MPH program only needs an MCAT score (not gre). Ft. Worth is very safe & parking is available (and cheap). Finally: even with a perceived or actual stigma against DOs, the thing to remember is that: at the fancy rep dinners, everyone (DOs and MDs) eats the same steak. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax and don't overwhelm yourself trying to read everything on the web about medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had been more focused on MY story (i.e. my background, experiences, etc) and just a little less focused on the tougher medical issues/debates. It's also important to keep in mind that the interviewers goal is not to interrogate you, but to evaluate your level of maturity, ability to think on your toes and your motivation (among many other things, of course). Since this school conducts closed file interviews, don’t hang yourself by dwelling on your less that satisfactory O.Chem grade (GPA, MCAT scores, etc). " More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was very relaxed. sit back and enjoy your interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The closed-file interview meant I had to recite alot of my resume during the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"All the great stuff they had going on- they have some great cutting edge programs in excellent location. While I prepared for some ethical/healthcare questions, I didn't develop or spend the time working out concrete/specific ways to resolve them- I prepared 3 minute answers not 10 minute answers- other students may want to spend some time on this when preparing to interview here " More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a great school, and visiting it made it go up on my list.

" I am a senior medical student at TCOM, and former student ambassador. I read the comments of interview experiences above, and just wanted to clarify a few misconceptions. I am so glad to hear so many of you left TCOM with positive experiences, and for those who were not quite sure hopefully my comments below will be useful. First off, I would like to say that I have absolutely no regrets having CHOSEN training at an osteopathic institution vs allopathic. Our additional training in musculoskeletal medicine and OMT serves us well and is a very marketable skill as I am finding out as I go through the residency matching process.(many MD's are trying to learn this now and want D.O. residents to teach them). ---GPA and MCAT--- 2 yrs ago when I recruited for the school, and I am sure our standards have not lowered AVG GPA=3.6 overall&basic science MCAT=27 This is equivalant to TEXAS medical school average Highly competitive program considering it is the ONLY Osteopathic program in Texas, while there are 7 allopathic institutions you have a chance to get into. --3rd 4th yr training--- WE DO HAVE A TEACHING HOSPITAL The Osteopathic Medical Center of Ft Worth or as we call it "THE O" is right across the street from TCOM. Not sure how that one slipped by the ambassador. Furthermore, several required (3rd yr) rotations are completed at John Peter Smith County Hospital (equivalent of Parkland but in Ft Worth)---great experience, tons of pathology =awesome training. As for 4th yr, we have quite a bit of autonomy as far as making our rotation schedule. This is a good thing. You have the option of selecting elective rotations across the country, at residency programs you may have an interest in completing your training. You say where, when, and what specialty for almost all of your 4th yr rotations. I am writing this at the UC Davis Library in Sacremento, CA.--Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation rotation. I hope that cleared things up. I will close for now, as I feel TCOM and Osteopathic Medicine really sells itself, but it is important to know the facts. I welcome any questions or concerns about the school or osteopathy in general. Good luck to you in the match! [email protected] Joseph M. Martellotto MS IV " More from this Member | Report Response

"There are two interviews. They can schedule them both in the afternoon or one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You'll be done at around 3:30pm at the latest, I think. It was a great experience and the facilities spoke for themselves. The 2nd year students were cool, although I wish we could've spent more time with them since we were running behind schedule. The school is pretty well established, so you can see for yourself. The second interviewer actually spent the majority of the time talking to me about one of my research projects, so I hope that turns out to be a positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great overall. I hope to be there in a few months!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were actually semi-open file; the interviewer knows everything about you except your GPA and MCAT score. There are two interviews and in my case both were very nice and polite. It was more like a very low key conversation; they mainly wanted to know how much of a person you are and if you know what are you getting into. I heard of one interviewer asking tons of moral and ethical questions, be ready. Excellent school, and will take me where i need to go." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience and I highly recommend the school. Everyone was really friendly and they were very receptive to their school.

Be prepared for several hypothetical/ethical questions (but know that there is no right answer...just be able to back up your answer, as they will ask follow-up questions)."

"It was good. Great place for a first interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent. I went to the interview not knowing much about TCOM. After the interview, I understand why everyone (who interviewed there) was so impressed by the school and staff. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive experience... I did not particularly desire to go to a DO school, but I was impressed with their facilities, success of their students, and atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a great experience, I was pleasantly surprised with how undeserving North Texas was of the DO ''stigma.'' It's a great place with great people and there are definetely MD schools lower on my list now. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone meets up in the admissions office you get a really nice pen, a name tag (I think could be wrong about this one) and a folder. If you arrive early you can sit in on one of the classes (which is a plus if you get a chance). Then you go to a financial aid presentation. After that lunch with that students who were really cool. Then go for the school tour and pending the time of the interview is when you step out of the tour and to your interview location. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was generally good. The two interviwers would joke with me and still be serious. First was was a lil laid back. 2nd one asked me a lot of questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was very positive. Both my interviewers gave me a lot of positive information about the school and about life as a physician in general. I got positive opinions about the school and the DO profession from both my interviewers (one was an MD and another a DO)." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview had lasted for an hour and 20 minutes, and it was absolutely amazing! The gentleman that I was talking to was a D.O./Ph.D., and he treated me like I was a member of his family. He told me everything about him, asked me about my relatives, and when the time came for the ethical questions, he guided me through every step of them. The interview was an absolute breeze. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laidback. The admissions office staff were all very nice. Small interview group, less than 20. Don't stress too much. They're not out to get you here." More from this Member | Report Response

"Check in begins at 7:30AM (your arrival depends on your schedule of interviews). Most people had one before the lunch and tours and one after. I had both of mine in the afternoon. Lunch was at the Botanical Gardens restaurant nearby and was awesome. Overall, great day. First interview was with a DO/PhD so I expected to be asked about my research projects. For some reason, I froze when he asked this question (towards the beginning). I quickly recovered and everything was pretty smooth from there. He even said I interviewed well. My second interviewer was awesome. Anatomy prof that has been teaching for 34 years. Very laid back, easy going. This interview actually lasted close to an hour when the proposed time was 30 mins (hence why I said interview time was 45 mins)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the experience was very positive. The admissions team is very nice and makes you feel comfortable from the start. I had two great interviews and enjoyed the whole experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I stayed overnight at a friend's place in Ft. Worth to avoid morning traffic from Dallas. The previous night I drove to the school to make sure I knew where I was going to go. I arrived at 7:30 am and met up with the other applicants. The first group of interviewees had an interview at 8am. My 1st interview was at 8:45am at the Patient Care Center with a D.O. (Family Medicine). The first interview went smoothly. Afterwards I met up again with the group of applicants for a tour and orientation presentation. After that we were driven to lunch at the Botanical Gardens by two second year students. Both students were very informative and friendly and gave plenty of advice. After lunch we drove back to campus and continued the tour of the anatomy labs and lecture rooms as well as the student lounges. Next, we had our afternoon interviews. Mine was not until 2pm. However, my second interviewer was not even on campus on that day so I ended up getting a replacement. A PhD replaced the DPM that should have interviewed me and I am glad that this happened. The PhD was very engaging and asked a lot about my general background what interests me about Osteopathic medicine. Overall, I am glad that I was interviewed by the PhD because it served to balance the DO interviewer in the morning. " More from this Member | Report Response

"overall very good, very personal feeling, not stressful though the day began early" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very pleasant, informative, and positive. I got the information I needed. The administration was very organized. Everyone was fun to talk to. This program is clearly one of the best." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed, yet still formal. My first interview was at 845am with a DO/MPH. Enthusiastic physician, conversational interview, talked with me at length about how TCOM students get into the clinic setting in the 1st semester. He also talked about how 3rd yr TCOM students typically have experience level to that of a 1st intern (resident). Second interview was at 2pm with Ph.D. Wasn't quite as conversational, more question-answer. He eyes tended to wander around the room a bit, so I wasn't sure if he was paying attention, but he dad ask some insightful questions. We also talked about his research interests, his grant application process, and what he hopes to accomplish with his research projects." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was very impressed with TCOM's interview process. I was nervous but the staff really helped us feel welcome and comfortable. The group sessions which I normally dread went rather well and were very low pressure. The tour and lunch time were very informative. My interviewers were very nice and friendly. I left with a good imression of the school and would strongly consider attending if I am accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I went to TCOM with a positive opinion of the school and left with the opinion basically unchanged. The interviewers were friendly and interview sessions informal. The interviewers had seen the subjective parts of my app- essays, activities, etc.- but not grades or scores. My second interviewer was particularly nice and put me at ease by saying how impressed he was with my application. Overall, TCOM seemed like good school in a great location. The interviews were low stress and 95% of the questions were ones you would expect to get (tell me about your app, why medicine, etc.)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great day! Relaxed with no stress. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had my first interview in the morning, then I attended an orientation session where they talked about the school and financial aid. Then we went to lunch and returned to the school to have a small tour before the next round of interviews started. Overall, it was a great experience because the staff and students were willing to give honest feedback on the questions that were asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a fabulous time. Any nervousness or uncertainty was quelled by the staff and faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had both of my interviews in the morning so I was basically done before 9:15, which is a good thing. I went on the school tour and had lunch with some of the second years. They were very nice. Everything they said seemed scripted, but it's ok. They can't really talk bad about the school. Then after lunch, the second year students took us to the anatomy lab where we saw two cadavers and an inguinal hernia. Then we went to visit the first year students who were having their orientation. After that, we met Stan and Norm, the school's infamous mannequins. I was done by 1 pm. Overall, it's a wonderful school, but I don't think it's worth $150K for four years." More from this Member | Report Response

"arrived at 7:30, most of us had our first interview at 8 or 8:45, then tour of campus (small so not much walking), then lunch at the botanical gardens with 2nd year students, then second interview at 1:15 or 2:00. most of us had interviews with a MD and DO or DO and PhD. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I was impressed with the interview. The admissions staff was very kind and helpful. It seemed like they were trying to recruit me to go to their school rather than me trying to get into their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews were really great. You will definitely be asked about your motivation/interest in Osteopathy so be sure to brush up on its basics. At first I was quite skeptical about the D.O route, but TCOM (and even the interviewers) really sold me on it. I wouldn't be surprised if I rank this school above some other medical schools in TX...it's really one of the best of its kind in the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall very positive. The anatomy lab is amazing, and the staff seems really knowledgeable about science and medicine in general. I was interviewed by a genetic forensic scientist who works with the fbi to break unsolved cases with new scientific research (that hadn't been available decades ago.) I thought he was pretty cool. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at 7:30am, was offered breakfast and given my agenda. My first interview was a 8am with a family practice physician. She was really easy to talk to. Afterward, I strolled around the school until 930am when I went to orientation. At orientation, osteopathic medicine is explained as well as the different opportunities that are available in it. After this, a presentation was given on Financial Aid. Then there was a Q&A, after which we were taken to lunch at the Botanical Gardens by the two student tour guides. The three students were all in their second year and gave us every opportunity to ask about our interviewers and ask about the school. After lunch, we went back and toured the campus- Gross Lab, Research Building, Education Building, Simulation Labs. There is an AWESOME view of downtown Fort Worth from the sixth floor of the Ed. building. After the tour, we were left alone to walk around or whatever until our last interview. At 2pm, I had my second interview with an Ear, Nose, and Throat. He was totally cool. We had a great discussion about having The Business of Practicing Medicine taught at med schools. " More from this Member | Report Response

"First interview in the am, followed by a tour and orientation of the school. Lunch was provided at an area resturant (nice and they drove us there) followed by a second interview back at the school. VERY welcoming feeling overall at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The D.O. who I first interviewed with was kind of intimidating, and seemed busy, and the interviwe was more like a questions and answer session. My second interview was with a Ph.D professor who seemed bored with my answers, he kept yawning and asked me the same questions several times. however, it was more like a conversation, and we spent half the time talking about things to do in Austin." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't think they liked that I did not have any firsthand D.O. experience. I finally had enough of my first interviewer and responded to him as such. My second interviewer was much friendlier and interested, though the questions were run-of-the-mill. BTW, the 2nd years that gave us the tour all smiled when they heard who my first interview was."

"Super-duper. This school moved up to number 1. The two interviews for the DO program were with a DO who does clinical teaching and a PhD who teaches some of the basic sciences. The PhD interview was with a PhD who is the graduate advisor for the area I was applying for. The school provided lunch at a local cafe with two MS2's who answered all of our questions. The interviewers were all very professional." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer, who I found out later was on the adcom, was incredibly fun to talk to and very encouraging - he told me exactly what I would be rated on & when I gave a correct answer. Then we got a tour and TMDSAS Match summary, a yummy off campus lunch, another nice interviewer, talked with an MPH administrator and the DO/ MPH degree, toured some clinical classes." More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was great. If you are traveling try to stay with a medical student. This allows you to ask questions before hand and even tour the campus the night before. TCOM is a small school and is a perfect fit if you are looking for a school with a sense of community." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer grilled with cookie-cutter questions and appeared like he had not even looked my file.

"Terrific experience, great school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the experience. They have small groups (10-15), so you don't feel like cattle being herded. My first interview was short, and the admissions people were concerned when I got back so early. My second interview was a lot of fun. He really interacted with me, and it lasted about 45 minutes. No complicated questions!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interviews, very relaxing. I was able to establish instant connections with each of my interviewers!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole thing was very relaxed. I was asked what I knew about osteopathic medicine. The students took us to a restaurant for lunch. The students who hosted us seemed very mature and professional. The interviews are broken up, with each student interviewing at different times, so you could get both your interviews in the morning, or one in the morning and one in the afternoon, or (I guess) both in the afternoon. Then you return to the "home base" and hang out, have your file reviewed for errors, or sit in on a class, until it is time for your next interview. In the middle of the day, they have a presentation about being a D.O., and then the seminar on financial aid." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was a PhD and she was very sweet. We had a very conversational interview. My second interviewer asked me about 3 questions and spent the rest of the time talking about his experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt extremely welcome here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was more relaxed than I thought it would be, until my second interview. Lunch was really yummy. The students who took us to lunch and on our interview were really friendly. The gross anatomy lab is really cool. Both of my interviews were in the afternoon so by that time I was relaxed. The first interviewer asked me about a lot of stuff in my file, but the second didn't. The first interviewer was a DO, and the second a PhD. Be prepared for anything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great, relaxed, friendly school... Nicest people around..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Generally a good experience, very friendly, but not very personalized." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would consider going here. However, I'm not entirely convinced on the effectiveness of OMM. There is very little science behind it and the few studies performed are not of high quality. Overall, not a bad experience but I am glad I have interviews elsewhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview went on for about an hour because we had such a great discussion going. He asked me a lot of ethics and questions about my obstacles and role models. My second was only twenty minutes and he just asked me questions from my application as he looked over it for the first time. Both were easy-going and made me very comfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was great. I would be happy to go to this school, D.O. or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"not too stressful. Both interviewers were nice and relaxed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had two interviews over the course of the day and both were in specialties I have an interest in. The interviewers started off with easy questions to break the ice and then toughened up a bit. They were both pretty serious but welcomed any questions I had of them. The interviews both went about 20 minutes over the tiime allowed, but the interviewers seemed very interested in talking to me and answering any questions I had. As a tip, know the DO philosophy and be able to explain the principles of OMM. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The ladies at the admissions office were very nice and caring. You could tell they were really happy doing thier job and wanted you to like it there too. My first interview went well, she was really nice and talkative. It was just like a normal converstation. My second on was a little more difficult becasue she asked alittle harder questions. All in all the experience was really a good one. Nothing to really worry about! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Despite my negative view of osteopathic medicine, I would still come here if accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"remember if you have an interview, that means they judge you as a viable candidate. they are trying to sell the school to you. be open to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I could tell that my second interviewer wanted to see if my motivations for seeking osteopathic medicine were pure or if it was just a backup plan for the MD schools. Of course you don't want to say yes osteopathy is my back up, but be honest about your motivations because it's obvious if your not sincere. When asked about my choice between TCOM and UT southwest I said flat out that it was hard to say but I did get a better vibe from TCOM than UT Southwest. I liked how the interviewer was honest with me when I asked him why he chose osteopathy over allopathy: he said that his MCAT score wasn't very good but his grades were so he just went to the best school that he could get into, very honest response. Note that he is now a very successful surgeon. The student's that toured us were amazing and really really honest. The anatomy labs were cool, and I would say that TCOM's facilities are right up there with most schools. Lunch was great, which they paid for. " More from this Member | Report Response

"TCOM's interviews are closed file, meaning that the interviewers have read your personal statement and secondary essays, but have not seen your numbers (grades and MCAT). They interview an unusually low amount of people relative to some of the other schools I have been to. There seems to be a somewhat complacent, and at times almost defeatest attitude about their reputation as a second-rate school. In fact, they explicitly defended osteopathic medicine (I think rightly) as a discipline that is just as entitled to the respect that MD's have garnered within both medicine and society at large." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't reveal the applicant's GPA or MCAT score to the interviewers, which I thought was good." More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent... Anyone who didn't apply to TCOM in Texas should think again, because it is a great school with people (faculty & students) who seem to really care and want you to consider going to school there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"both interviews were laid back and conversational. They asked a few questions about my background and family." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive experience. They are very open and willing to answer even the challenging questions about their program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, good day- great school, program, and facility. I didn't like getting grilled because I don't feel like that the best way to get to know people. I wished it was more relaxed and real." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in the door because everyone is so nice and personable. They treated every student with respect and courtesy, and were genuinely trying to make us feel welcome, which I did. Lunch was provided at a quaint little coffee house - nice touch. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It seems like a great school with a small school atmosphere in a great location in Ft. Worth - probably a part of the nicest area in town (arts district/restaurants/parks). Facilities were fantastic, especially the library. They knew their strengths and weaknesses and presented both - they were honest and proud. They really made a good impression on me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't like it at all. Be prepared to talk about why you applied to an osteopathic medical school and MD schools if you are applying to both. My interview started very early in the morning, and when I got there 15 minutes early, the building was locked! :(" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very eco-friendly. They request that interviewees help recycle plastic badge covers at the end of the day and with over 700 applicants, they certainly make a difference!" More from this Member | Report Response
