What impressed you positively?

"All the students I talked to loved the school and many came up to me to say hi and introduced themsevles. It felt like very wholesome community with an intelligent and diverse student body. The facility is much nicer than even some of the "competitive" MD programs that I interviewed at. The student lounge is nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of a campus cafeteria. Maybe that's a good thing? I noticed like 8 fridges in the student lounge and went to check them out. They were all stuffed with meals that students brought. I plan to bring my own food anyways because I keep a strict healthy diet." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My dad is a MD in SoCal and he has many friends that graduated from COMP. I learned from my dad and his COMP alum friends just how much COMP graudates are respected in SoCal. COMP has strongly established its presence that no other DO school in the western states could compare. The solid alum network and the reputation that precedes it will carry you a long way into your medical career. Basically one's medical career is gauranteed to be a success once graduated from COMP. I was sold already based on what my dad and his friends told me. After visiting COMP and discovering its diverse student body and techie classrooms, I am even more sure that COMP is the place for me. Good luck to all the applicants!" Report Response
