What impressed you positively?

"The DO students and the PA students really support and help eachother like a close team, which I feel is really important. The faculty are all personable,extremely intelligent, and show sincere concern for all of the student body. Also, part of my family is Jewish so I felt familiar and comfortable around everything, and everyone has major respect for aspects of Jewish culture. The diversity of the student body is great. There is a definite social life outside of the school, which is always a good thing because every med student needs to occasionally unwind and have a beer(or 10) :)The new ortho surgery center is going to be FANTASTIC. " Report Response

"Honestly, nothing. They are in the process of negotiating rotations with various hospitals in the area, but all of that will be taken care of before any of its students get to that point in the program." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that you could stay with a student. I would have liked to have experienced the student life at this school outside of classroom hours. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, a great experience. As mentioned many times on this site, the students are super enthusiastic and very passionate about the school and osteopathic medicine. The interview was very laid-back and relaxed, more like a conversation than an interrogation. I felt that they wanted to get to know me during the interview instead of rallying off a checklist of questions from paper. The curriculum and potential of the school is outstanding. It being their first year in operation, I was very impressed." Report Response
