What impressed you positively?

"The admsn staff warmth, interviewing atmosphere, campus. I have read complaints (on this site) about the anatomy lab being gross. It wasn't. The building was fine and so was the lab. The smell was not overwhelming. It did not smell compared to my comparative vert. anatomy class during undergrad. Free tutoring and KPLAN prep material for boards. All of the lectures are recored, so if something comes up you can listen to the tape and update your notes. They bring the family into the picture. They realize your success is also dependent on how satisfied you are in your whole life...kindof like the osteop. phil. in medicine." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers did a great job at putting me at ease. The interview was actually in the professors office. It was just like my undergrad prof. office - papers everywhere- so it was not an intimidating. The interview seemed more like a conversation. Even the painful question about my earlier gpa was not so bad because of the way the interview presented the question." Report Response
