What impressed you positively?

"There were several impressive things during the visit. The library was beautiful and huge. Wireless internet is available on campus and within a 2 mile radius of the school. All the health profession division buildings are connected so each building blends together seemlessly. You may think it is one large building but in reality it is many buildings linked together. Apartments are available in close proximity to the school. One is next to it and another is across the street, plus many more in the immediate area. The HARVEY program was simply amazing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No real gym on campus for workouts. Right now there is a small facilty. I was told it was to be tore down in August and a new building built that would be much larger and would meet the NCAA rules, so I expect it to be huge. Didn't really find Fern that great. She really got on my nerves. Kind of freaked me out. Don't stay at the Best Western. They denied me shuttle service, but allowed 2 other students to get it. I didn't find that out till after I had arrived. They also weren't very accomodating for my wife who asked for a late check out. I would stay somewhere else if I were to go there again. It is close to the school though, so that might outweigh the bad for some people." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They offer many dual degrees and are working on some new ones. The one that caught my attention was a dual DO/MPH degree. They have a grant that allows the DO students to take this master level course for free. It normally is $17,000! The school has many clubs and one in particular takes mission trips. They have been to Guatemala, Jamaica, and Haiti. Once there they stay for 2 weeks, I think, providing medical care for the native people. I haven't found many schools that can offer that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a wonderful experience. The students were great, the facilities are top notch and I believe they have resources available that many other medical schools don't have. The day ran smoothly and the interview was excellent." Report Response
