What are your general comments?

"We arrived and sat together in a room with a seat waiting with our info and name tag. A man talked to us about osteopathic medicine and current issues and then he told us that we had all been preselected to be there at this early interview date and that they wanted to accept us. Student ambassadors then took us around the school and showed us all of the facilities and the apartments across the street. We then had lunch in the cafeteria. Afterwards they took us to a recreation room and we were fitted for our white coats (very cool) and then waited for the interviews. We were on a list as to who and when we would be interviewed and the student ambassadors would talk to us about the interviewers and tell us about their personalities and what type of questions they will most likely ask. The interview was very conversational and not stressful. Impress them by talking about things that you know well. I had an interview on Monday and on the next Monday I had an acceptance letter in my mailbox!" Report Response
