What are your general comments?

"The 4-on-4 style was interesting. I can't say if it was more or less comfortable than a one on one style. I think it was easier in that the spotlight was not on you the entire time and you had less questions to ask, but it was harder in that when you were in the spotlight, you had seven people looking at you, and because you had so few questions each (four) you had to make each response count. Overall people were very friendly and the interviewers made it fairly comfortable. My hometown is about 3 hours from the campus and Touro was definitely high on my list for a few reasons (climate, location, etc.) I was accepted and I will be attending. " Report Response
