What are your general comments?

"The interview was good. The Dean is new to the school, but he has a lot of hopes and changes he would like to make to the school, one being more research, especially research in OMM. Although he was new, he was able to answer most of our questions. It was nice that he took the time to actually meet with us and answer questions unlike other schools where the Dean would just pop in to say ''hi'' or not show up at all. Dr. Haight was really incredible. He answered all of our questions without being bias. He also made sure we were prepare for the format of the interview and answered all our questions. The student guide was enthusiastic about the school and seems to really enjoy her experience there. " Report Response
