What impressed you negatively?

"Admissions staff, particularly the front desk admissions officer. On the phone I knew she had kind a alittle attitude to her, but when I met her I was very unimpressed, if the schools frontman is uninviting it makes you wonder about the school. Also, I been to a few other interviews and MSU did a horrible job of making you feel wanted and getting you information on the school. and of course I can't forget to mention the poor conditions of the facility. PS I went to MSU for undergrad." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"MSU was a great undergrad. school. The campus is nice and the city/nightlife is great. However, the poor recruiting job done by the admissions staff turned me off from it. I have several friends who have gone through the program and are doing great, the reputation it good for a DO school. However, for being such a strong primary care school, they should think about working on the communication skills. The only reason I am still debating going there is because of the tuition. Not to give a sales pitch for another school but if you are interested in getting a personal touch to admissions, check out university of Health sciences, I've interviewed at 6 schools and it was the nicest. PS I got in at state " Report Response
