What impressed you positively?

"What didn't impress me! The campus is very nice and not spread out over 4 square miles (my undergrad school is rather large). The students are extremely friendly and there wasn't a general gunner attitude on campus. The school explicitly states that family and religion is more important than school… I was generally impressed. The location of the campus is not the greatest but it was much better than what I was expecting from previous posts on this site. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The price tag is very large for this school and the class size is a little larger than I would like. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I should have looked at the curriculum a little more." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started at nine with a semi-formal Q&A about osteopathic philosophy and Hx. After that there was a team of five MSII students that took us to the OMM lab and give us a chance to ask any off-the-record questions. Then, they took us all over the campus (I mean everywhere…). We ate lunch then had the interviews. After the interviews the day was complete, but a few interviewees (including myself) stayed and talked for a while. Overall, I had a positive experience. I received a letter of acceptance 6 days after the interview and will probably attend medical school here. " Report Response
