What are your general comments?

"I LOVED DMU!!! I'm a former Iowa resident so it was great to be back in Iowa. The campus is very nice and the new building will be great. The morning was quite long b/c they tried to sell Iowa.... no need here! It was really nice to meet some of the professors. We got to meet the President who was a former govenor. The interview was given by a second year student, a Ph.D., and a DO, alum and current prof. Interview was very laid and just wanted to get to know me. Make sure you know why you are going into medicine and some of your goals as a physician. I love DMU and am definately keeping my fingers crossed. " Report Response
