What are your general comments?

"it seemed like touro bashed on western and MD programs and they gave u the feeling that osteopathic is way better than MD. and they keep asking why osteopathic over MD. The school was not very appealing, i would pick vegas over vallejo any day of the week. The dean was nice as well as 2 of the interviewers, however one of the interviewers i felt was givin an interrogation and the other one's cell phone went off and he left the room, i thought that was rather rude. but all in all, it is a med school, be it DO or MD.. and if you want to practice medicine you can't really be picky" Report Response
