What are your general comments?

"The interview was great, and I was really impressed with the school. I have always gone to DO doctors, so I knew that I wanted to attend a DO school, but I was worried that other people were only appling there because they could not get into a MD program (as some of the MD doctors I know implied). What I found was a group of great students who were really enthusiastic about becoming caring and compassionate physicians. I found out that I was accepted a week after my interview, and am pretty sure that I will be attending this school. The facilities were great, the anatomy lab and OMT lab have video for students to see what is going on. Everyone was friendly and sincere. " Report Response
