What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was pretty laid back and calm, although I was a nervous wreck being the first one called in for the interview. I think I stumbled over my words when trying to explain my understanding of the osteopathic philosophy... make sure you know it inside and out, why you want to go into the profession and such. I left the interview feeling horrible about my chances. However, I got the acceptance letter 4 days later! Don't give up hope too easily!" Report Response
