What are your general comments?

"This is my new #1 choice. If you are very interested with OMM (which I am) this is the place for you to go. Throughout the day everyone kept stressing how laid-back the interview is, and they were right. You do not have to get worked up about it, it was mainly questions about things in my personal statements. It's a nice location, you can live almost anywhere in Des Moines, and still be within a short drive of school. There's plenty of parking also. You can only plan on being here for 2 years, there's a possiblity you could be here for all 4, but it depends on the lottery." Report Response
