What are your general comments?

"Overall, I really liked the campus and the students, and they all really had great opinions about the classes and their professors. I also liked the match percent with residencies, but I really did not like the interview itself. I think part of it may be that I'm just being too self-critical, but I really felt like they could have done more to make it more of a personalbe experience. I had barely sat down when they started asking me why I wanted to be a DO. The D.O. in the room seriously just sat there with looking bored and saying barely anything the entire time. I guess I just didn't feel comfortable is what it all comes down to." Report Response
