What are your general comments?

"Overall, a good experience. It is a SMALL school, so if you need a crowd,; it's not for you. If you need to be IN the city, it's not for you. But, if you like a close knit group, practically one-on-one instruction, and people sincere about making you a DO when your acceptance letter comes; it's for you. Every school has its issues, but this school is small enough to where you won't get lost if you have an issue." Report Response
