What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Haight was very welcoming and encouraging. I liked his straight-forward approach and ability to put us all at ease prior to the actual interview. The campus is small and very tucked away on the island but the anatomy lab is amazing. Our student guides seemed very happy at the school and tried hard to answer our questions. The faculty that interviewed us were firm believers in the benefits of osteopathic medicine. The admin staff even seemed happy and relaxed. Folks I told about the interview were impressed they fed us lunch. :)" Report Response
