What are your general comments?

"I went in very neutral, but left absolutely hating it. I almost cannot beileive I have such strong feeelings as I rarely do. The students all seemed very unprofessional, including my M1 student interviewer who was both clueless and socially awkward (I couldn't imagine how he got in, let alone why he's interviewing applicants). He showed up late in a dirty sweatshirt with backpack in tow. Would have been nice had he and other interviewers had shown some respect for the dozen applicants there in suits. The other students kept bragging about how often they skip class and just watch the videotaped lectures. The facilities were adequate, however the campus is in the middle of nowhere. Also, first year classes are with the Osteopathic school, which I think would create some awkwardness. All in all, the students and faculty seemed sub-par and not at the same calibur as the other schools I've interviewed at. " Report Response
