What impressed you positively?

"The faculties down to earth attitude. We were all greeted by the Dean in the morning and he and the rest of the faculty were very nice. The dean even said to call him if you don't get in and he will help you to improve your application. How awesome is that? Also, the school is very big on OMM which is important because that is what distinguishes DO from the rest of healthcare professionals." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location is a little different than I had pictured; not rolling green hills, but mountains all around. Lots of rock and not so much grass, at first I felt like it was a colony on the moon, but after a short drive everything you need is there. Also, the facilities are not as nice and new as i might have pictured, but i feel like the teachers and small class size makes up for that, and they are putting on a 1 million dollar expansion soon."
