What are your general comments?

"In the morning, tensions were high; students bunched up in groups and we were trying to get a feel for each other. Eventually, the tension eased up once Roger Corbman introduced himself and led us to the admissions office. We were informed about Touro University and its roots of Touro College. The dean also spent about 1 hour with us and really displayed how much he cared about teaching and advancing the experience of the students. Thereafter, some people were led to individual interviews while others met with current OMS students. After, we were led on a tour and finally had lunch with our colleagues. Overall, if you like the hustle and bustle and antagonistic nature of Pre-med lifestyle where it is ''kill or be killed,'' this is definitely not the school for you. However, if you like a place where the staff as well as your peers will push you to your limit and help you along the way, then definitely this is a place for you." Report Response
