What are your general comments?

"I ended up liking the school much more than I thought it would. It is a growing school as they are adding vet and podiatry schools (I think). I was told that by 2009 the DOs will have a whole new building the the pharms will take over the whole building they ccurrently share with the DOs. I think it is pretty cool that you have PTs, vets, pharms, DOs, nurses, and other fields all in the same area...I think this is an up and coming school even though it has been around for a while."
