What are your general comments?

"This was my 2nd interview and noticed that I am one of the few applicants still in undergrad... but it was a positive experience. Info session in the morning was very informative and students were very relaxed and great to hang around. My advice is if you are applying to an Osteopathic school... know who established Osteopathic medicine, what the basis for it is and what principles are used today. I played pool with the students before my interview to continue to relax and I was called into their office. They were very nice and relaxed.. no pressure. Questions weren't bad at all.. Just stay calm and remember you're interviewing for a reason! They want to accept you! I really liked the school and everything associated with it.. I have been accepted already and would love to attend here." Report Response
