What are your general comments?

"A group of appx 24 of us started out the day in a room with a presentation on osteopathic medicine with a few questions asked personally of a few people (by name) about the history. It's not a big deal if you don't know the answer... I don't think any points are taken off or anything. Then we went on a tour given by students, then on to lunch in the cafeteria which was pretty good. Then a tour of a couple more buildings and the apartments across the street. Then back to wait in the student lounge for our interviews. It was a very laid back atmosphere where we mingled with the current students, playede ping pong, and watched some stupid show on the big screen TV. We had to try on white coats so if we are accepted they will be able to order them before orientation week in August. Then on to the interview. I interviewed with two men, both were very friendly. They told stories completely unrelated to the school which put me at ease. There were only a few questions, and none were in an inquisitive way, they just flowed in the conversation. I even shoved my foot in my mouth by saying something stupid, and we all three laughed it off. One of the interviewers actually helped me find my way back to the lounge and stayed there to chat with the interviewees for a while. The day was over at about 3:00. " Report Response
