What are your general comments?

"The interview started out at the alumni center where they showed us a presentation about the school and asked questions about osteopathy. Make sure and brush up on the history of A.T. Still and osteopathic medicine. After that, we had a question and answer with 4 med students. Then we broke off into two groups and they took us on a tour. Everything is in about 4 buildings. The anatomy lab is on the bottom floor but doesn't really smell. After that, you have lunch in a small cafeteria with not very good food. Then you sit and wait in the student lounge for your interview. I was out of the interview (as most interviewees were) by about 2:30pm." Report Response
