What are your general comments?

"Dr. Haight makes a very impressive job preparing students for interview. He makes a good point about how Touro only takes students who they have a good chance of accepting. The other major point he stated was that one should apply as early as possible because there are no slots. If one applies late, the statistics that would have put them in would probably not get in because maybe only 1 out of 40 would get in at that point, where as applying early would have been 20 out of 40, etc." Report Response
