What are your general comments?

"The interview started with Dr. Haight gave us a brief introduction about the admission process and he explained very clearly where exactly we are in the admission pool. Dr. Haight is really nice and makes the interview goes really smooth for me. Basically he prepared everyone for the group interview by asking possible questions the panel might ask. During our group interview, there are one DO, two phd and one student interviewers. The questions they asked are really interesting. Basically Dr. Haight told us that what the interviewer are looking for is not only dependt on answer itself but also depends on how you manage to answer the question. Overall, I had a great time visiting Touro. It's a great school with over 98% passing rate of step one and there are many support groups that help students both academically and socially. The neighboring area such as Bernicia, Napa also has a lot to offer." Report Response
