What impressed you positively?

"Board pass rate is REALLY high, so they must be doing something right. Good facilities, clinical experience first year, TONS of hospitals to do rotations at, tuition, and students were really nice. Prosection, yeah I said it. Why spend half of dissection time picking fat away, when you can already have it done for you? " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only thing that really turned me off was a comment that one of my interviewers said. Since I live in Ohio, I applied to the MD schools here also, and one of my interviewers asked me "Since your MCAT score is a bit lower than MD standards, and your probably not going to get accepted at any of them, is that why you applied to DO schools?" Not only was that a wrong assumption and inappropriate, but I was totally offended. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That parents could come on the tour with us. I sent mine to that casino in NY that's a hour away. I thought it would've been cool for them to see everything, but they probably would've opted to go gamble anyway." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview was great. You get there and go to a room and wait for everyone else to arrive, go on tour, then are brought to a giant conference room where you wait to be called for your interview. I was one of the first to go in, and the wait after my interview was LONG. The good thing is that they tried to entertain us the entire time, so it wasnt like we just sat there and stared at eachother. They covered financial aid better than any school I've been to so far. " Report Response
