What impressed you positively?

"The students are very supportive of each other and sincerely interested in the well-being of their colleagues and community. There is a very positive learning environment; everyone is very enthusiastic about osteopathic medicine yet not stuck on themselves. The OMM lab and the anatomy lab are fabulous. Great rural setting!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Limited places to eat. It seems like housing may be difficult to find. There was a long waiting period during the interview process (however, that seems to be the trend everywhere). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I forgot my suit hanging on the closet door when I packed up stuff! So...the Maine Mall was a very nice place to do some "last minute" shopping (although this tour of South Portland was not on my agenda). On a more serious note, I wish I would have known when I would be hearing a response from the admissions committee. Also, I wish I had known that their total deposit is $1500 to hold your place in the class after getting an acceptance." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was just like I had expected...a nice conversation. They weren't interested in grilling me, they just wanted to get to know me as a person. The students and faculty involved in the process help ease your anxiety." Report Response
