"Pretty much everything. The Dean took 10-15 minutes to talk to us on the tour and individually shook our hands and wished us luck. Nice guy! The anatomy lab is awesome!! They were done with anatomy when we toured but there was no stench at all, they have an amazing ventilation system set up and the whole thing is top notch. They also have a new center for simulated patient practice and its completely up to date and high tech. The gym facility is awesome!!! Nice weights and cardio machines. One of things that I liked the most is that everything (except the main portion of the library) is open 24/7 to students. You can study anatomy at 2 in the morning if you have a test coming up. If you feel the need to lift some weights in the middle of the night you can do that too. Your ID card gives you access to everything at all hours. Everyone at the school seems genuinely interested in your well being and the admission staff are amazingly nice. You may find the area slightly boring. But you're there to go to med school, not party, so its not a big deal. The area is full of history and very pretty." More from this Member | Report Response

It was interesting that they showed the prospective students cadavers on interview day, but I appreciated seeing what anatomy lab really looks like. 3) Plenty of parking. 4) The area.

The school has a charm to it that others dont. Plus all of the interviewers were very social and helped me connect well to the school's mission. You have tons of opportuntiies in the school and PBL and SBL path means that their circiculum is modern. JUST DRIVE AND GO, dont postpone because this school is one you have to go to inorder to experience. the town is safe and has a history to it. its better than any WV school for sure....dont miss it."

The anatomy lab is state of the art and everyone has ethernet hook-ups in the many classrooms. This place is teeming with technology even though it's out in the middle of nowhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were awesome. The people are friendlier than any I met. The choice of PBL or SBL tracks is really cutting edge. Rotations in 3rd and 4th year are done throughout the Appalachian region, but you keep in touch with the schol via weekly reports that are available to the students when choosing a core hospital for years 3 and 4. It's really an advanced way of doing rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

I had also heard from a friend that it was considered to be one of the hardest to get into and a highly respected school. I interviewed at Edward Via in Virginia the next day. All I can say is, I am keeping my fingers crossed, I am on the waitlist, this is my top school of choice and I have interviewed at six Osteopathic Schools. I have been accepted into all but two. My credetials are top notch, this lets me know that WVSOM is definetly hard to get into. I can't say enough about the facilities, the people and the town (I come from a huge city and was not brought down by the very small town atmosphere). I loved every minute I was there. ESPECIALLY my stay at the General Lewis Inn. Fabulous." More from this Member | Report Response

The classes are held in historical buildings (I believe it was once an academy?), however the best parts of the history have been maintained while keeping the facilities state-of-the-art. Apparently their anatomy lab is so advanced that other schools (Edward Via Virginia and others) have mimicked it. And similar to what seems to be the case at most Osteopathic schools, the students and staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Oh yeah, there is no dress code."

"The out of state tuiton" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I'd like to address a posting about no cafeteria on campus. If you are concered, don't be. First, there is an hour break for lunch. Plenty of time to drive the 3 min it takes to get home, to a restaurant or store. Also, in talking with staff and students, food is often available on campus for presentations, etc. as well as througout "block week" while students are testing. It is very apparent to me that the staff really care about the students, a more important aspect of the school than a cafeteria." More from this Member | Report Response

"Price of tuition and the inability to get in-state tuition if not currently a resident." More from this Member | Report Response

"1)Like most DO schools, there is no affiliated hospital, so you have to move third year to another site in WV. 2)The whole place seemed a bit generic. There was nothing particularly special or interesting about the campus. For example, there hardly any pictures on the walls. Something about it just struck me as odd. It feels like they just moved in yesterday. Very strange. 3)Staff referring to female applicants/students as "girls." This might be picky of me, but they are women seeking/getting a professional education, not high school students." More from this Member | Report Response

People say that it is what you make of it, but if I wanted to go to a medical school just to learn the material myself, I would go to the cheapest place just as long as I could be certified to be a doctor. WVSOM just left too many unanswered questions for me. But maybe I did not investigate enough. You will love the school however! " More from this Member | Report Response

During the tour I actually saw one of the faculty wearing cowboy boots/hat and a belt buckle while teaching the class. Call me old-fashioned but I just don’t think that’s appropriate for a medical school. The big “selling point” for the school was how “relaxed” their students were… I don’t need to pay $40,000 to be relaxed. The students who gave us the tour talked nonstop about how they party all the time, I don’t know if that’s typical but it sure didn’t impress me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I could have spent more time in Lewisburg. Unfortunately, the interview ended around 3 pm, and I was so exhausted from the little bit of sleep I had the night before. I was not able to check out the town, because I had a 5 hour drive home." More from this Member | Report Response

"The only thing that negatively impressed me was the library. It was pretty small as college libraries go. Apparently, the school does have online subscriptions through EBSCO and MD CONsult, though." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"At first, Lewisburg was kinda a downer because it was so small. However, after receiving my acceptance letter to WVSOM I went up there to find a place to live and it really isn't so bad. There's golf and horseback riding and skiing and everything you really need. Beckley is about 45 miles to the West and Snowshoe, WV is just a short drive up hwy 219. The people are super friendly towards the students and I urge you to try to find a better Hardees than the one that Lewisburg has. You can't, best fast food breakfast I've ever had. :P That's important when you know you'll be dragging arse every day to class!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The lunch with the med student was so awkward and the tuition is crazy expensive. The budget for next year is $67,000, and for ever $1 you borrow you pay back between $2-3 so by the time you were done you could have to pay back almost a million dollars.l That would take a while in rural primary care which is what they want you to practice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Zilch." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was one student at lunch that was particularly negative and a bit cynical, but most likely because it was hell week for exams. I was still highly impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"the location of the school. the town is not part built around a college , so there is no "college town" atmosphere, nor is there really any "quaintness." it is simply a very small town, however, that is not to say that it doesnt have potential. a large metropolitan area it is not, however, i doubt there are tumble weeds blowing through the streets either. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The town is very small. It is a medical school, not a university, no other professional schools nearby. Out of state tuition is really high." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is located in a fairly isolated location. I completely disliked the style and distance of the 3 interviewers- they did not crack a smile- but rather very stoic. The cost for out of state is incredibly high- almost 40,000 for tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"how small the town was--I like bigger cities (since I got accepted though I may overlook that since the school was really good) they also had a low board passing rate this past year for some reason" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although I did love the quaintness of the community and small class size of the school, the town's population of 3700 might be a bit stifling." More from this Member | Report Response

"A 7% tuition hike for next year, requiring in-state students to seek private loans in addition to federal loans. " More from this Member | Report Response

"In previous years the school boasted an impressive board passing rate. However, for some reason this last year their passing rate dropped below 80%! (Although it is easy for statistics to jump considering their relatively small class size) They do maintain a 98% "finish rate" though. Apparently 98% of those who start there, finish with their D.O. degree (took boards twice?). Nonetheless, 80% is a very low passing rate. They have the new PBL track now and that seems promising. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer was particularly dour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"DO NOT take the VA 311, it is the scariest road ever. You end up almost sideways on top of a mountain with no safety railings on the sides. Know as much as you can about osteopathic medicine. Try to get an afternoon appointment so you can talk to the current students before your interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would rain. haha. But they had umbrellas for everyone when we went on the tour so it wasn't that bad. It was out of my control, but the travel was super expensive. I had to make three connections to get to Roanoke and then I still had to rent a car and drive an hour and a bit. Just know that. If you're coming from far out-of-state I would be sure to leave the morning before the interview so you have plenty of time to get there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"same as above" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the facilities were so amazing - the lecture halls and the anatomy lab were simply the best I have come across. I was honestly taken aback. I have no idea how such a quaint community supports such an amazingly-modern medical school. I grew up in a small rural town, and I could not imagine a medical school being located there. VERY impressive to say the least." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I didn't need to freak out about the interview because it's purpose was to get to know you as a person. I wish I wouldn't have worried about the increased class size because they are definitely ready for it.

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are not any taxi's" More from this Member | Report Response

"That Lewisburg isn't as rural as some wold lead you to believe. That or most people haven't been in a really rural area. Lewisburg has a Wal-mart, applebeas, and several other restaurants and shops so its not that bad. I come from a town that doesn't have anything nicer then a fast food restaurant and a Wal-mart is 30 minutes away so I thought Lewisburg was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school doesnt have a cafeteria" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the tuition will be increased by 7% each year over the next few years and that the class size will be increased significantly over the next few years. This seemed to be a concern with some of the staff because there might be some growing pains associated with accommodating such an increase in the student population. This also might have the potential to compromise some of the strengths that WVSOM has come to be known for...although I hope that is not the case." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing just the cost is really high especially for out of state. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You cannot gauge how your interview will go based on the comments of other students that interview before you. A student that interviewed before me felt that he was drilled with tough questions and insinuations were made against him that he would not be a good doctor because of bad grades he recieved his freshman year.

"It's 3000 bucks to reserve your spot. Of course I put it on my credit card but also be prepared...it is a buttload of money to go here. You're looking at a 245,000 loan if you are from out of state. But hey, you want to be a doctor, it's worth it. trust me, I have 3 degrees in computer science, philosophy and chemistry. The corporate world sucks, be a doctor and do what you like no matter what the cost! WVSOM seems like money well spent." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lewisburg is not a small town if you are from a small town. I am from a tiny place with no redlights and they have both a Super-Walmart and a Super K-mart so thats pretty big by comparison.

"Everyone at this school is amazing. From the students to the staff, they are all there to make you the best doctor you can be. I made it a point to ask as many students as i could what you hated about the school, and most said something like, the town nightlife sucks or studying for boards takes up a lot of time. All of which had nothing to do with the school, whcih means the students really love the place and its legit" More from this Member | Report Response

Stress level on interview day is ZERO!!!! They just want to meet you and get to know you. They interview around 600 and offer acceptances to slightly over 500. Unless you seriously botch it and are nothing like you say you are in your application, you have a good chance of getting accepted once offered an interview. I freakin' love this place."

I think this school has everything in order and students going here will get a solid education. I also learned quite a bit more about OMT from being here and am more interested in it than before I interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers are hard to read. It was hard to tell if they were interested in what I was saying. I heard other applicants says it's like a conversation in the interview, but it was not for me. I felt like they just asked me a few specific questions and that was it, so I was worried at first. It turned out well in the end though so don't be discouraged if you don't get a good vibe from them." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school and the facilities are nice. The campus is beautiful and I love the serenity of a mountain town, however I don't see myself fitting into such an isolated place. Maybe because I live in a city I'm used to more diversity, but diversity is something that is important to me and I think beneficial to anyone who wants to be a doctor. The fact that students get shipped out to even more isolated areas of WV for their 3rd and 4th year scares me even more. The tuition is way too high, even for a really great program. I would have to seriously weigh my options if I chose to go to school here over anywhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

A few people who were interviewed earlier in the day were asked about their grades or MCAT scores though. Angie and Annette in the Admissions Center are incredibly nice and friendly. The students at lunch were also nice and honest. One student was married and said that there's a campus organization for the spouses and significant others of students, which is pretty nice. If you have time before your interview, check out the downtown area. I'm from a metropolitan area so I'm used to having a lot of options for entertainment, shopping, arts, dining, etc. but I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of little shops and restaurants as well as a theatre, a movie theatre, and a Carnegie Hall."

"Everyone was really nice. They gave different arrival times for the interviewers, so I freaked out a little when I arrived and a bunch of people were already there. The tour guide was really excited and helped calm the interviewees. Med students took us to the General Lewis Inn for lunch--one student who went with us was on the PBL track. The interviewers spoke to me more about how I felt about the surrounding area than why I wanted to be a physician, which seemed odd to me." More from this Member | Report Response

Lewis Inn Limo. driver knew alot about the school, their mission and their rankings in the states. He also gave me a few tips, and made me feel at home. The staff, as well as students that took us on the campus tour were very helpful in answering questions and reassuring us. They also seemed confident and proud of their remarkable facilities and rankings in primary care. The interview was pretty laid back, although I did freak out, 'cos I was the last to interview that day, and I got to interview for like 40mins. However, everything must have gone o.k, as I got accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

There was supposed to be a third to-be-determined interviewer, but he/she was a no show. Three people interviewed immediately in the morning and then we were joined by people who were scheduled to be interviewed in the afternoon. We were then taken on a tour by a woman from the admissions staff and then taken out to lunch by three students at a restaurant. After that, we had a presentation from the PBL track dean and a presenation from the clinicals director. We were then given packets about financial aid.

I felt like I spent a lot of money and time traveling to West Virginia and that the school had little interest in really getting to know who I was. The people where very nice however, I was just very surprised at the lack of interest in my application.

I had to wrap up my answers quickly because another interviewer seemed ready to move on to the next question. I thought the interview was very short( felt like 10 mins) but in fact it was 30 mins. May be because I have a lot to say. SDN questions are very very helpful I thinks they have guideline on what questions to ask.

That said, the interview was extremely laid back and Ms. Bowyer was excellent as a tour guide and admissions rep, and she made every effort to make us feel welcome and comfortable throughout the day. After a tour and an introduction to the PBL curriculum, the students provided an invaluable means of information when they took the interviewing group out to lunch at the General Lewis Inn. After that, we watched a video about clinical experiences. OH, and I have to mention ''Otto'' which simply amazed me... it was a robotic patient that responds to treatment and can be used to practice clinical stuff before using real humans (They have 3 robots total including a child robot for pediatrics). The anatomy lab was devoid of formaldehyde smell and it was extremely open with skylights!

They also showed an emphasis on training physicians for West Virginia.

"This was my first interview, so understandably, I was a bit nervous. The drive from Western NY where I'm from was a little crazy, especially in the dark and fog. I was really impressed by how nice all the students, staff, and faculty were - very chill ppl. Interview was very conversational, very fluid, and will probably be my easiest (have interviews coming up at KCOM, NYCOM, and NSUCOM). Be prepared to explain in detail about your motivations and background (goes without saying). Went to lunch with some MS1s, MS2s; really interesting discussion about SBL/PBL tracks. Not too sure about PBL since it seems a bit unorganized, but lunch at the General Lewis was excellent. Finished with a tour of campus; saw Otto the human patient simulator, 24-hr study areas, library, bookstore, and g. anatomy labs. Anatomy labs were pretty impressive; apparently they were faculty-designed and have a unique ventilation system that works well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This is just in response to a person who left feedback on 11/9/2005: There seems to be some concern as to where all the new students are going to go. Although the construction on campus is pretty obvious and the new building is big perhaps this person didn't see it. However, the new classes are going to be in a brand spanking new building which will well accomondate all the students. There are also new apt complexes being built in surrounding areas. Though not in walking distance from the school. However, there are still quite a few housing options near the school anyways. As far as anatomy ventilation goes -- it's one of the better ventilated anotomy labs around. Not only that but because of the new class size increasing a large part of the anatomy lab space will be new next year. That is all. " More from this Member | Report Response

We were there at 8:00AM as instructed and were given the option to fill a form agreeing to have our pictures taken (individual pictures). The interview was more relaxing than the waiting part but it helps if you find something to do or someone to hang with to keep your mind off of it. I seem to connect really well with one of my interviewers. She backed me up on a lot of my reponses. I connected with the microbiology professor from the beginning until the last question. Damn! As for the other one she was nice but caught me off guard with a few comments/questions based on my previous reponses. Choose your words wisely!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at the admissions office at 8 am; I was the first applicant there. They give you juice, fruit, coffee, water, and crackers to eat while waiting for the day to begin. They then give you a sheet of paper with your interview time. Before and after the interview, you are free to walk around campus, sit in on classes, and talk with whomever. The interview was with three committee members - the Dean of Admissions, a clinician, and a professor. It was a very laid-back, easy going conversation with three knowledgable people and myself. Everyone at WVSOM is friendly, and they all convey that family demeanor! After the interview, we were given a short presentation on financial aid, third and fourth year rotations, and the PBL track. Then it was off to lunch at the General Lewis Inn with current medical students and a walking tour with Angie! Then we were done.

"Overall, great interview. They wanted to know about me as a person and didn't try to intimidate me at all. They generally wanted to get to know me and I was quite comfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Well I was second to last to go, so I had 2 1/2 hrs to walk around the very small campus. There was nothing to do except get more nervous, also sat in a lecture. The Professor had a long pony-tail and was a male. Didn't give a great professional experience. The interviewers didn't seem to personal to me. They weren't until they said do you have anything else to add at the end and I just put in all the stuff I felt like they should know like my strengths and stuff that I thought they would have asked me, but didn't. They did seem pleased when I took initiative, So if they don't seem personal at first just say what your going to say. Gotta fight for your spot!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview went really well. I had the interviewers laughing so it made things a little bit less stressful. I was myself and did not try to say what they wanted to hear, I answered each question honestly and to the best of my ability. They asked me a lot about the things in my application. It seemed like they memorized it!! Overall I would say that it was pretty laid back despite my high level of stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low key. It was my second interview and I heard it was a casual conversation between you and two retired faculty members which is exactly what it was." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was extremely hospitable and friendly. Although it is hard to imagine that a panel interview could be relaxed and conversational, this one was. Unlike the "no feedback" policy most med schools seem to adopt, they were very responsive and encouraging." More from this Member | Report Response

"Stay at the General Lewis. It's really cute there, and it just makes it easier. You meet and have breakfast there at 7:30am, then you go to the school and meet some admissions people. Then the interviews are conducted, while it isn't your turn you are free to roam the building and sit in on lectures, which was cool. Then you go for lunch one on one with a student, which is good to get to know the school from a student's view. Then you go back and take a tour of the school. It's pretty basic, but it's really relaxed. They don't want to make you feel intimidated. Hope this helps!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was great, they do their best to help you feel as relaxed as possible. If you can go to breakfast, do it, it makes a great icebreaker, and is a good way to learn about the school in a relaxed atmosphere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back, it was only supposed to take 30 minutes but we really clicked and I was honestly having a good time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty stress-free. They told me the interviews would be like a conversation but that wasn't entirely accurate. It was a boardroom setting with me against three faculty members. They just asked questions and I answered them. Not a conversation at all, but they were easy, "Get to know you" kinds of questions. Later we got to check out the facilities and classes while they were in session. It was a nice day overall. Unfortunately, some things aren't that high-tech. They don't have wireless yet, and they don't have some facilities like at Kirksville and Des Moines where they bring in actors for you to be practice patients."

"Overall, I was impressed with the school and their welcoming attitude. During my interview, I tried to be myself and show them that I was intelligent and capable of doign the work but that i was also personable and able to interact well with people. Just be yourself and you'll do great. I think that's a lot of what they were looking for in their interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I don't feel like I did very well on this interview, I felt that the interviewers were bombarding me with questions, and that I didn't always have the right answer. Also, they have taken a long time getting back with me." More from this Member | Report Response

"On the whole it was a relaxed day. Stay at tbe general lewis (thats where you will meet somebody from the school and have breakfast). The interview was a little harder than what i had experienced so far. But overall, it wasnt that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was laid back and comfortable. Nothing to get stressed about. One of my connecting flights was canceled due to severe weather and I was re-directed all over the country and didn't get into Charleston until 2am and then didn't get into Lewisburg until 4:30am on the morning of the interview. So, I ended up getting about 45 minutes of sleep before the day of the interview...not an ideal situation. Yet, it didn't seem to matter because the interviewers really made the interview comfortable and conversational. The three interviewers seemed genuinely interested in who I was as an individual. I was definitely impressed by the faculty there. I did think it was slightly strange that I wasn't asked about my reasearch because I have several solid stem cell research publications, yet as I think about it research really isn't a prominent focus at WVSOM. To be honest I didn't think I did all that well in the interview, yet I must of done better than I thought because I was accepted yesterday. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, they have 2 tracks. Everyone is so nice. Interview was more like get to know you, they asked me how the drive was to calm me down, it worked, lots of laughs, no hard questions. They give a response quick in 1-2 weeks. :-) I am def. going to consider it, but my first choice is NYCOM. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was supposed to be with a doctor, a scientist, and a member of the admissions staff. The scientist was ill, so I only had two interviewers. Both of them were very nice and easy to talk to. I was a little nervous at first, but soon I felt like I was just having a discussion with some close friends. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a great experience! The day starts with breakfast at the General Lewis Inn. They rotate faculty for this, so you don't know who you're going to get. It is a great way to break the ice, though. Next they take you to the admissions office where the director goes over your file and any missing requirements. Next you get to set in on the PBL and SBL sessions while the interviews are going on. The interview itself wasn't too bad. There were three comittee members including the Associate Dean for Admissions. After everyone has interviewed, you have lunch with several 1st and 2nd year students, all of whom are very courteous and helpful. Finally you get the grand tour of all the facilites. Overall, it was a great experience. You get a LOT of unsupervised access to the students, which I think speaks very well of the school. The Lewisburg area is absolutely beautiful (I'm sure it didn't hurt that the leaves were at the peak of their color when I was there). Be prepared though: the area is very rural. If you absolutely live for the breakneck pace of a Mega metropolis like DC, New York, or Chicago this is probably not the place for you. If you want somehwere that is quiet and the students and faculty are tight-knit, then you should definitely check out WVSOM." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good day. Although it was a little long, we sat in through 2 of the med students classes. The atmosphere was positive and stress free. I really liked this school and hope to get in. The average time to find out your status is 2-3 weeks after the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is in reference to the previous post... I am a student on waitlist waiting to get into WVSOM. I have been accepted into two other school and 'incidentally' have a 30 on the MCAT. If you look at the other previous posts, no one has had any high stress in their interviews and have had very pleasant experiences...whether from a big city or not. It seems like this person felt unsure enough about themselves to be immature and slandering on a site where they are just supposed to give simple opinions, not hate messages. Hopefully their self-esteem will improve later on in life. I can assure you, as many people have in their reviews here of WVSOM and their records state (have been in the top medical school in the country for in Newsweek for 10 of their 35 years as a school) that WVSOM has a highly respectable interviewing process, is unbiased and provides a quality education...if not, I wouldn't have turned down two other schools to risk getting off their wailist. Best of luck to you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive. The staff are very friendly as are the students. You will eat breakfast at the General Lewis Inn, then go in for interviews at the school. Afterwards you get a tour of the school and then a financial aid session. Whole process took me from 8AM till 3PM. All I can say is don't be turned off by WVSOM because of the small town. It's better than it seems and the school is state of the art. The staff really cares about their students and they even have a Problem Based Learning Track. Once you are in you are family." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was good. The day seemed kind of rushed, but they were trying to get everything in by lunch because a girl had an early flight out of Roanoke and the weather was horrible. The mornng began with a review of your file with the director of admissions and she was also one of my interviewers along with a DO and a PhD. All 3 people were at one conference table and I sat at the head and they took turns asking questions. I thought this was so scary upon entering the room, but surprisingly this was my most relaxed interview so far. There is nothing to be nervous about! Then there was a tour of the facilities in the rain, but they provided umbrellas so that was a nice touch. The school is so nice and modern. Evrything has been remodeled and the facilities are top notch. You no longer have breakfast at the General Lewis Inn with admissions people, but it is still a really nice place to stay and you do have lunch there one on one with a student. My first year was not very talkative so I was struggling to make conversation and she seemed to get really offended whan I asked if the PBL students learn as much as the systems based group, but the food was really good so that was a definite plus. Our interview day ended after lunch. " More from this Member | Report Response

I do wish I hadn't applied so late. I was trying to cover all my bases, yet I am glad for the experience if nothing else. If I get in I would very much like to attend the PBL track. It would be amazing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Being from Boston, I wasn't sure what to expect from a school located in such a small, rural town. But I was completely blown away! They have incredible facilities, a great faculty-student rapport, and a real heart for osteopathic medicine. Definitely tied for my top choice." More from this Member | Report Response

" Stay at the General Lewis INN (~$60 after interview discount. It is a quaint, bed-and-breakfast place. The admissions office is very friendly, and the students and faculty make you feel at home. The facilities are modern (the school is not very old), and the workout center is an added bonus. Overall, if you are looking for a school focused on primary care and rural medicine, and aren't concerned with the high tuition rate, the school is a fabulous fit."

"the day starts out with breakfast at the general lewis inn. the inn is very quaint and has a historic ambiance. the breakfast was delicious and a great way to start out the day and get to know some of the other potential candidates. from the get go, you get the sense that the interview will not be overly competitive, and the two faculty at breakfast wanted us to speak candidly and offered to answer any and all questions. i interviewed third out of four people, so i had the chance to attend the second years lecture on GI pathology. to be honest, the majority of the class seemed unenthused, however, they had the powerpoint slides as handouts and could probably find better ways to spend their time. the interview itself, was what i expected, typical how and why type questions, but nothing off the wall. the tour was great and very informative. the school is in its first year of a pbl (problem-based learning) curriculum, and the students (21) that are members, all seem to love it. they seem enthused and yearn to learn more. the tenets of this type of learning make sense and the program seems very well organized, however there is no data on the success of the students as of yet.

"This interview was a learning experience. Practice, if you will, for other interviews I have in the next few weeks. It confirmed my belief that I don't want to live in WVirginia. I think it really is a great school for the right student. I really got the impression that you will have a successful and complete education, and will learn what you need to have a great career. I personally don't feel that I belong there. I'm very much a bigger city type of person. Would likely go crazy in this type of environment. Stay at the General Lewis Inn! You have to meet there at 7:30am anyway, and it was full of character. Like a true colonial Inn. It felt like I went back in time to the late 1700s. Interviewee rate is way cheaper than normal rate, and totally worth it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my day in West Virginia. The Lewis Inn is really nice. It was was relaxing to start the day with two faculty members. They just got us talking and I'm sure they read our files prior to the breakfast cause they seemed to target each interviewee about somethign or the other. My actual interview felt stressed. I felt my answers didnt measure up to their expectations. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I met 2 really other interviewiees at the interview whom i thought were really cool. Other than that there is a huge lack of diversity, someone stated earlier that there is only 3% minority. I saw one non caucasian student on campus, which is the basis of me giving it a no change status. the town is very small, 3000 people including the students and it is a very personal school. IE the school gives to the surrounding community etc. I'd go there." More from this Member | Report Response
