What are your general comments?

"This was my only interview and it was great. Dr. Haight was everything that I expected and more. The entire group of interviewees (9 total split into a group of 4 and a group of 5) were awsome. Whitney (UCLA), Steven (BSU), Justin (Akron), Emily (Austin... Hook 'EM Horns), Sonja (Berkley), Mijo (Boston by way of Chicago). Josiah (Camas), and Rashna (Chicago) I wish you all the best of luck. On another note... I wound up getting extremely ill after my interview in Monday. My plan was to attend classes on Tuesday with my friend (OMS I) and about 10 minutes into OMM lab I had to go to the bathroom to get sick. I was not able to hold anything down and being diabetic that is not a good thing. My friend was studying and I was laying on the bathroom floor in the library because it was cool when Mike (a second year) asked my how I was doing. He suggested that we go to the OMM lab to try to help with some of my symptoms. It helped a little bit, but not much. Dr. Cislo was also there and suggested that I be taken to the Cove Island Clinic to have my blood glucose checked. Gerard (another second year) offered to drive me there. It turned out that my sugar was fine and I have a viral infection of some kind. The physician at the clinic said to stay hydrated and drink alot of gatorade. I was still dresses for OMM lab from that morning so Gerard paid for my Gatorade. The point to this long story is that the type of caring and dedication to the health of others I witnessed at Touro is exactly what I am looking for in a medical school education. If I do not get in this time around Touro will be the only place that I apply to next year. " Report Response
