Just make sure you know your DO facts!!!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything!!! I love how my interviewers ( a DO and a third-year student) sold the school to me! The students loved the school and each class is pretty close! Well, it's kind of hard not to be with only 95 students!!! Definite family atmosphere. Loved it!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview ever, so I was really nervous, but it was better that I had expected it to be! I actually was laughing most of the time during my interview! ( a lot of jokes were cracked!) The girl waiting for her interview said she heard me laughing down the hall! Whoops!! I totally felt at home here and the students are really great and very friendly. The class size is great too, allowing more opportunities for individualized help. I left the school with a great feeling, and I had an even greater feeling when I was accepted a week and a half later!!! There response time is really fast. NJSOM is a awesome school with a great campus in a good area of South Jersey! I think this is the place where I will be for my next four years!" Report Response
