What impressed you positively?

"This school is amazing; absolutely everything during my experience impressed me, and it is now my top choice. The facilities are brand-new, the campus has wireless access and laptop plug-ins in the classrooms, the curriculum is a mixture of the basic sciences and a system based approach; the school also implements case-based and problem-based learning into the curriculum, as well as the OSCE labs (simulated patient assessment laboratories). There is no curve, so you are only competing with yourself in the end. There is a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon coming to practice at TUCOM-NV, so the students will be able to watch his surgeries via closed-circuit TV, and apparently, a number of international physcians will be expected to come as well. All the clinical rotations will also be in NV, and the college plans to open up an occupational therapy program as well as some other masters programs. Touro University is well known internationally and throughout the eastern United States. Henderson is also one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and is a great place to live - everything is clean, and it is a sound place to make a future for oneself given the shortage of doctors in NV. Most importantly, however, everyone was so chill I could not believe it!!!! I love the people. They were all very laid back and friendly, from the students to Mr. Corbman (he is hilarious, btw) to the Dean(s). " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing! I don't mind that they don't have a cafeteria in the school. C'mon, this is Vegas! You can go out and eat just about anywhere you want, from a buffet to a small restaurant. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was invited to interview Nov. 29th originally, but my notice was lost in the USPS mail (how reliable they are), but fortunately, I called in January and got an interview set up. There are 78 deposits in right now, and up to 108 (can be pushed to 120) will be accepted. I wish I would've had my interview back in December so I wouldn't have been interviewing for so few spots left. I really want to get into this school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had two ladies interview me, and both were absolutely awesome! The experience was very conversational, and although the interviewers did ask a few general questions you would expect, they really tried more to inquire about my personality rather than all of the leadership/extracurricular activities I've done. I was commended several times throughout the interview on everything from my writing to my speaking skills, desire to become a physician, and my knowledge of the current crises in medicine, something that made me very relaxed, yet encouraged all at the same time. It was very flattering. I couldn't have asked for anything else (well, except the acceptance, of which I hope is coming soon, lol). " Report Response
