What impressed you positively?

"The school is beautiful and the facilities are impressive. The student ambassadors didn't hesitate to take us everywhere from the library to the OMT and anatomy lab (which by the way doesn't smell because of there state-of-the-art ventilation system). The faculty, staff and students were so nice and very willing to answer questions and even gave us advice about questions to ask once we found out who our interviewers were. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is in a pretty bad neighborhood (this is said on almost everyones feedback). Infact that morning there had been a robbery at the 7-eleveen across the street. But most of the students said that they feel very safe on campus and most seemed to live away from the school in a safer part of town." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Make sure you know the history of Osteopathic Medicine, not just the philosophy. My dad is a DO so I really didn't do much research into the historical facts behind how Osteopathic Medicine was founded because honestly I didn't think they would ask "who founded Osteopathic Medicine". They do, so be prepared. The first hour is a lecture from Doug Dalzell and he likes to ask questions. Luckily he didn't get me, but he asked a million questions...so do your research. He says he just wants you to be prepared for your interviewers and he intends to teach you, incase you came not knowing what Osteopathy is all about. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"9-10 Intro Lecture from Doug Dalzell 10-12 Tour with 4, 2nd year students 12-1 Lunch in the Student Cafeteria 1-4 Interviews - We all went to the student commons and sat around and waited to be called. There are ping pong tables and computers but most of us just sat around and talked. They also had the guy from the financial aid office come in to talk about student loans. This was also when they measured you for white coats. I was the first to get called for an interview. I had Dr. Bruce Peters (the head of Pediatrics) and Nancy Lutz (from Marketing). They were both very nice and the interview was pretty laid back. I really didn't feel like I could get a vibe from them....I couldn't tell if they liked me or not. I got my acceptance letter a week and half later so I guess they didn't hate me" Report Response
