What are your general comments?

"started off the day i go in the shuttle just on time, travel down to the school, and we are quizzed by name about the history of osteopathy. you can prepare for that really easily if you just read over the history section on the accomas website. he basically follows that, and in chronological order. then you watch a video... they cant show me or tell me anything i dont already know about this place, or wait can they... i found out that UHSCOM is the largest medical school in missouri. out of 6 medical schools uhscom is it! cool. then off to lunch... try not to get messy... then you tour the campus with a student ambassador, then over to the apartments across the street. once you finish there, they zip you back over to the main office and you sit around in a lounge room with a pool table, big screen tv, ping pong table, and some desks, etc... and just wait til its your turn to go up and interview. while you are down there, you get to try on a white coat (basically same size as your suit coat if you wear one) and get to also talk to the financial aid guy. then you are lead up to the interview when your name is called... sit around in someone's office and talk for about 30 mins or so, and get out. for the most part the people interviewing are so hard to gleen any info from as to how you are doing, that it will drive you insane. basically they are looking for a good fit with the school because since you have gotten an interview they already think your grades and mcat are good enough. if you really wanna go there, then tell them that uhs is your first choice and will go if accepted... then you get out of there, jump on your shuttle and leave."
