What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of the students and faculty, they really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Again, the friendliness of the students and faculty. Honestly, I felt as though they held my hand the entire day. This made me feel somewhat childish and was not what I expected from a professional school. Also, I got the feeling that they really push the "DO is better than MD" idea; an idea that I do not agree with at all. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How the "midwestern" ideals of a school can influence the interaction between those involved with the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was the most laid back experience to date. It truly was a conversation and not just a question/answer session. The interviewers and I did a lot of laughing and I was competely at ease. The overall feeling of the school, however, was not really for me. Some people thrive on a "family" feel while at school but I do not. Not to say it's a bad school, some people will love it, and they should. It just wasn't for me." Report Response
