What impressed you positively?

"The campus in amazing. The school is brand new, the buildings are beautiful with a lot of room to expand (which made me feel good that they want to grow). The labs are great, state of the art technology (plasma tv's in anatomy labs, OMM labs etc...), 3 story library, nice class rooms, mix of programs on campus, the student center is great...lots of students acutally using it. Ping-pong table, huge tv with theatre seating, lots of tables. I like that there is no dress code. The tour guide was hilarious, knew tons about the school, really enjoyed attending classes at AZCOM. Also feel like they will prepare me best for COMLEX I and II. Get you into clinic in second quarter." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I had to wait about an hour and half for my interview so I got a little nervous, which was strange because this was my fourth interview and had not been nervous for any of them. I had my tour before my interview so I think I decided that I really wanted to be accepted to AZCOM so I proceded to get nervous for my interview :)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was good overall. I stumbled over my first question which was the stacking money next to the empire state building...it caught me off guard, which I am sure it was meant to do. It took me a couple questions to relax again. My interviewers where nice overall, a little hard to read. My student interviewer was a little on the cranky side but I was last to go after a long morning of interviewing. They had good specific questions out of my essay that they wanted me to expand on. I felt they really did want to get to know me. I had interviewed the day before in California and traveled late into the night before the interview in Arizona. Only got a couple hours of sleep each night for a few nights(not recommended)so I was not playing my ''A'' game so to speak. I think my interview would have gone better had I put a day inbetween California and Arizona." Report Response
