Worth is very safe & parking is available (and cheap). Finally: even with a perceived or actual stigma against DOs, the thing to remember is that: at the fancy rep dinners, everyone (DOs and MDs) eats the same steak. :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer, who I found out later was on the adcom, was incredibly fun to talk to and very encouraging - he told me exactly what I would be rated on & when I gave a correct answer. Then we got a tour and TMDSAS Match summary, a yummy off campus lunch, another nice interviewer, talked with an MPH administrator and the DO/ MPH degree, toured some clinical classes."
