What impressed you positively?

The professors seemed to love teaching and had close relationships with the students. The warm weather of California. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The exterior of all the buildings needed to be improved. Due to the isolation of the campus there is little, if any, contact with the outside community. The block schedule seemed to keep students to busy to participate in other activities. Patient contact is virtually non-existent until years 3 and 4. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Going into the interview day I had a negative view of the school, mostly due to the comments that I had read on this website. However, after the interview and visit I was left with a much more positive view of this institution. Although still developing TUCOM seems to have a good program and attracts good students. The interview itself was very informal, the interviewers made us all feel relaxed. The questions mostly pertained to what each person had written in their essays. One of the interviewers was a M.D. and wanted to know why we all wanted to be D.O.s. Outside of that questions they were given specifically and individually. Although some do not care for the panel interview I rather enjoyed it. It was nice not to be in the spotlight to whole time and to see how your colleagues answered interview questions. I think that this school will prove to be a great match for some people, but it is not the place for me. " Report Response
