"Looked over TCOM website, studied the principles of osteopathy, and read over some current books on healthcare issues." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"TCOM is situated on a beautiful campus with striking views of downtown Ft. Worth from every building. The admissions staff, students, and interviewers were friendly and enthusiastic about TCOM. The anatomy lab is completely wired with everything from plasma screens to "skycams" for viewing body parts. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is no hospital adjacent to the campus, so we had no tour of medical facilities. Also, rotations in 3rd and 4th year are spread all over the place. They told us that most DO students have to take 2 sets of boards- the USMLE and COMLEX, which would involve extra study, money, and headache. Also, TCOM has a long school year with almost no time off." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went to TCOM with a positive opinion of the school and left with the opinion basically unchanged. The interviewers were friendly and interview sessions informal. The interviewers had seen the subjective parts of my app- essays, activities, etc.- but not grades or scores. My second interviewer was particularly nice and put me at ease by saying how impressed he was with my application. Overall, TCOM seemed like good school in a great location. The interviews were low stress and 95% of the questions were ones you would expect to get (tell me about your app, why medicine, etc.)." Report Response
