"Lack of good hotels and the high drug and use of cigaretts by people in town. And, one of the wives told us that the Dean smoked all the time right in his office. The facilities looked old and run down. The rent in town for apartments tends to be extremely high. Not too many single family homes are available either. The area has a high crime rate per population." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Could have spent my money on another interview location. My last choice of all DO schools. Someone said the Dean of the school is now the AOA president, but how does that help me as a potential student. So then who is really running the place? What does the school really have to offer?? Seemed like a bunch of smoke and mirrors and no substanance to the program at PCSOM." Report Response
