What are your general comments?

"Interview was really quite easy. If you can't maintain your nerves through this interview, you may have a problem in medicine. Everyone is very friendly. I didn't like the fact that no time was spent regarding tuition, financial aid, etc. Because the fact of the matter is that once you get to this stage, you simply have to show that you're a competent, smart person who's dedicated to medicine - and if you've gotten this far that shouldn't be a problem. I got accepted and plan to attend, mainly because of location and frankly I prefer the philosophy of DO over MD." Report Response
