What are your general comments?

"The interview day was well organized. Dr. Haight did his best to comfort us. He is a caring person with deep insight and truly wishes the best for each candidate. The tour was brief and was given by a staff person who is the wife of a TUCOM student. She was wonderful, spoke highly of the school and provided us with a unique perspective. During the interview, I was a bit nervous. I could not have asked for a better group of people to be interviewed with/by. My group consisted of four guys interviewed by two women and one guy. Again, the interviewers were professional and cordial. The questions were fair and straight forward. The interviewers were interested in what I had to say and I never felt rushed. They emphasized how TUCOM is looking for people who can lead but yet work together to make this new school successful. I interviewed for the Las Vegas campus. It will be awesome to be part of the charter class. Las Vegas is growing at a rapid pace and with TUCOM as the only medical school in town and the second in the state, students will have many opportunities. With blessings from AOA, Las Vegas leaders, and the dedication of the TUCOM staff and students, I am confident this will become a great school. If granted acceptance, without doubt or hesitation, I will accept this opportunity to be part of something great and exciting." Report Response
