What are your general comments?

"The interview process is exactly how everybody else on this site explains it. Read up on the history of osteopathic medicine because you might be a person that is picked when their quizzing people. The interview is later in the day so don't be stressed when you first arrive. Your nerves will diminish by the end of the day. There is nothing to be worried about! If you know how to hold a conversation then you will be fine. A few of the fellow students had some ethical questions but as long as you have an opinion on the issue and you stick by it, then you will be fine because that is all they are looking for.
