What are your general comments?

"The interviews are at the end of the day, which gives you two opportunities: 1) Ask the student guides about whom you are interviewing with and 2) Stress over it all day long. I was the last in my group to be interviewed by the 2 faculty. They tell you that the interviews last between 30-40 minutes. However, the first person in my group was gone for 1 hr and the 2nd guy was gone for 40 min. When I walked out of mine, I was only in there for 20 min! I thought for sure I had blown it. (But I didn't.) To sum up, it was a good first interview experience. Don't stress over the interview, even if it's short. Ask the ambassadors as many questions as you possibly can amd don't worry about the little "surprise" pop quiz on the history of osteopathic medicine....although at this point, you should know something about the profession you are going to enter. Overall, this is a great school." Report Response
