What impressed you negatively?

"There were signs posted in the study hall to wait quietly for the next computer. The classroom had no internet hook-ups at the tables. The anatomy lab is in the basement and seems to have little or no ventilation. I was interviewed by two Ph.D's, rather than a D.O. On the way to the Century Towers apartment complex, which is a renovated hospital, we were approached by a homeless man asking for money. The convenience store across the street looked like a ghetto hangout. " Report Response

"Interview was scheduled after lunch. They did not give me my interview time or any information about the interviewers until they called me for the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I brought my mom to guest night and she had a lot of questions answered. The day was long with a sales pitch by the vice president who quizzed us individually about the history of osteopathic medicine in his "socratic method". We moved about from place to place and saw the whole facility. We did not meet the president, but saw her on a promotional video. The OMT lab was packed with close to 100 tables, so it looked like if you were at the back of the room, all you had was a live video on a tv to work from. " Report Response
