"i got the best idea of the difference between the two tracks from a student at lunch. the admissions needs to find a better way to explain/differentiate" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"standard osteopathic questions. as stated in previous OUCOM logs, interviews turned more into conversations. My last ended in a discussion about evidence-based traditional chinese medicine with DO surgeon of 25 years. Try to bring something (book, experience) to the table that you're very comfortable talking about that will relate to osteopathic medicine in an INDIRECT. Pick the brains of the students with whom you have lunch, they're your last stop before the faculty interview HAVE FUN" Report Response
