What impressed you positively?

"The campus was designed beautifully and the facilities are new, although not that grandiose. Housing was fairly cheap in the outlying area. Most of the students were friendly. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The scheduling of the day was terrible. After a brief presentation about financial aid, half the group sat for interviews and the other half went on a tour of the facilities. Needless to say, upon completion of the tour I sat for 2.5 hours waiting for my interview slot to come up. They should have had a presentation by the faculty on how the curriculum and rotations are set up. In addition, I really wasn't that impressed with the facilities. The library is about medium size compared to some of the other schools I visited. The anatomy lab was also a bit cramped considering at each table there will be three or more people. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The tuition increases 3-6% every year while enrolled. In mid-October the temperature was still in the mid-nineties. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was impressed with the campus landscaping but not the interview day as detailed below. My interview was extremely laid back. It felt as though it was just a formality and that my fate was already sealed. It just so happened that one of my interviewers was doing research on a type of animal that I am extremely interested in so we hit it off right away. The 4th year student was really nice and provided great information of the rotations etc... The third interviewer was a D.O. and didn't ask me any questions. When they asked if he had any questions he said "Your resume is very impressive and extensive, I don't have any questions". The same gentleman also asked the other interviewers if I could test out of some of the classes because of my previous course work. Overall it was a great interview with no stress at all. I would recommend the school as it is one of my top three D.O. choices. It was great that they informed me of my acceptance within 1.5 weeks." Report Response
