What impressed you positively?

"Everyone at this school is so nice and down-to-earth. It seems like everyone is involved in clubs and community service, but no one complains about how much work they have to do as long as you budget your time wisely. The facilities are great despite edging on an almost okay neighborhood. Everyone seems to really care about the students and do everything in their power to help. The systems based learning seems pretty cool- no having to deal with 5+ subjects at the same time. Also, they have a dual D.O./M.B.A. program that is designed to be completed in four years (taking night/summer classes mostly)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Financial aid mostly focused on loans and military service." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Know the history of osteopathic medicine- i.e. general questions "Who founded?" and "What are the basic tenets?" etc. The whole day was really laid back, including the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by two incredibly nice ladies, the vice president of admissions and an alumni liaison. They basically flipped through my file and asked about interesting things I had done- I really felt like they wanted me to come there, they were only making sure I wasn't a cretin. :) Turns out I did all right, seeing as I got in a week and a half afterwards (called, received letter two days later)."
