What are your general comments?

"I've been to COMP before during their Osteopathic Awareness Conference. The inside speaks louder than the outside. I was escourted from my car to the student center by security. I questioned my safety but the guards said that all schools have security guards (um, ok). I bumped into a couple of old faces from my undergrad years so I felt more at ease there. The interview was not bad. Lots of ethical questions as I expected. Know your issues and be confident in what you say. " Report Response
