What are your general comments?

"We began in a conference room where a member of the admissions committee quized us about the ideas and history of osteopathic medicine, and then told us about the school and our potential futures. Then the student ambassadors took us to the OMT lab and we had a question and answer session and then a tour. After lunch we visited the nearby apartments and then waited for our interviews. My interview felt like it lasted maybe 5 minutes, but the SA said it was at least 20. The interview was relaxed and like a conversation, but I was still nervous. The DO professor and the administration lady asked general non-threating questions and then asked if I had anything else to say or ask. While waiting to interview we were fitted for white coats and financial aid and an admissions representative, as well as the SA's, were there to answer questins. Overall I enjoyed the experience. As for the area of town, it is not the best but I didn't feel threatened, it would not be a deterrent for me." Report Response
