What are your general comments?

"The entire day was great. It started out in the Alumni center. This was a little awkward as there was no one greeting us, and we all sat around waiting to begin in silence. They gave us a talk about the school, about osteopathic medicine, and about what our future holds for us. Then, we had a student panel, followed by student-led tours of the campus. Lunch was in the cafeteria and was good food, but not a place you would want to eat at everyday. We then went to the student lounge and waited for our interviews. It was really chaotic and disorganized at first, and I was glad I was not one of the first people to be called for my interview. When it was my time, a student ambassador walked me across campus to my interview. The interviewers were very nice and very relaxed. Almost too relaxed that I worried I wasn't focused enough! I had some difficult questions about healthcare and stuff, but also some easy ones about why I want to be a doctor and experiences I have had in my life. Finally, I interviewed on Thursday and recieved my acceptance letter on Monday, so the quick turn-around time was impressive!" Report Response
