What are your general comments?

"The day was pretty fun. I stayed at the best western near the school and it was more than big enough for me. It had a kings size bed, walk in closet, phones in the bathroom, and well you get the picture and it was fairly cheap. Good tip to stay there for those interviewing. At the school the day began with a little meeting in the admissions office where the applicants gathered. There were about 5-7 prospective students on that day. We were led to a conference room where we met admissions staff, the Dr. in charge of rotations, and a 3rd year OMM fellowship student. There was a discussion about the school and about the scholarship for OMM and research that is available to students. After this we took a tour of the college from a faculty member since most students were in finals or studing for them since it was december. After the tour we met for lunch with some students that took the time out of thier busy days to answer any and all questions for us. Then we went down for our interviews which were from 15-30 minutes. Mine was around 35-40 (I like to talk). Two people in a room with just you the prospective student. Not a lot of pressure in the interview. Just conversation. Then we had a driving tour of the campus to show us the other buildings, business school, law school, and the library. The library is absolutly huge and this is mainly due to it being a public library also. It has shared funds from the community so they could have a large library. Which was a big plus for having extra library and resources outside the college. Then we were taken back for a finicial aid presentation and a meeting with the dean of the school. In all it was a great school and good experience. They let me know of my acceptance within a week. Thats quick." Report Response
