What impressed you negatively?

"To be honest, the entire having A. T. Still's log cabin and the orininal Osteopathic school inside the building seemed a little odd and strange.

"Thousand Hill State Park. I would have visited it sooner. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The community was initially a shock, but talking to the current students, including one from my undergrad, it sounds like it's great because of the lack of distractions. The new building promises to be good. The two main interviews (2 hour long interviews with adcom members, 1 15 minute interview with an admissions coordinator to make sure the application is up to date) where very pleasent.
