What impressed you positively?

"The weather and the fact that the very close bell street had every resturant I ever wanted. It also had good shopping. The facilities were brand new and the students seemed happy though the day we were there they had a couple of exams so there was stress abound. The cost of living was not as bad as I thought it would be. They did not have a cafeteria yet (being built) but they had a lot of food for the interviewers. Both breakfast and lunch! Also, lots of candy in the admissions room. :)THe entire campus is brand new and there is a lot of nice places to go study." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The on campus housing had no dishwashers in them. There are only two terms of Gross but they cram it in. You are in class for it more every week than other schools in the first year. Again it is a private school so the 32K is a hefty price mark, but this was expected." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the airport was 30-40 minutes away but it was quite easy to get around phoenix. There is no grass and no trees but the scenery is awesome. Lots of mountains around and its a great town for culture and sports. It was mid october and the temp on our interview day was 96 degrees. WOW. Also, they interviewed 18 people on my day which seemed like a lot compared to the other schools but it was neat to meet so many people in the same boat. OH!!! The biggest thing I can add is that the interviews were really short. 30 minutes and they keep to this quite closely. I had a very quick interview and I wished it was longer. I think they got a good idea of me but I still had a little doubt in it. I was the last of 6 interviews for them that day so they seemed a little tired." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"AZCOM was a greatt cool school. It is brand new and they really try and get your some clinical exposure the first two years. It is a little different in that during your roations you have a preceptor that you follow that you do everything with them. This is a little helpful as you will gain their trust and more likely be able to do more hands on procedures which helps in the long run, especially with LOR and evaluations. The students seems really happy and you cannot beat the weather. I had a great time. They let us know it would take 3 weeks to get an answer from them." Report Response
