The school is very nice, campus is beautiful, and the facilities are outstanding. Another plus is that MCO contains 1 of only 7 or 8 USMLE testing centers in the nation. You don't have to go anywhere else to complete your boards (except the clinical skills portion)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You will be scheduled to attend two interviews, both of which are one-on-one, and can last up to an hour. The interviews are designed to be non-threatening, and the interviewers that I spoke with conducted the interviews more like conversations. It was a fantastic opportunity to ask questions, and get the feel of the school. Usually one interview is scheduled before lunch and the tour, and one in the afternoon. The tour is nice, the students are helpful. There are sessions on admissions and financial aid in the morning. I interviewed with 8 other students." Report Response
