What was the most interesting question?

"What was the last book you read?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None...If you know exactly why you want to be a D.O., and why you want to go to Pikeville, none of the questions are difficult. However, if PCSOM is your ''fallback'' school, or you don't really know why you're choosing osteopathic medicine, they will read right through you- and you probably won't get in." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"The night before, I read through the PCSOM booklet. That's pretty much it. They really stress to be yourself, and they make the experience as comfortable as possible (given the fact that it IS, after all, a med school interview)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students, the faculty, the atmosphere...and the incentives (laptop, books, instruments, etc. are included in tuition)." Report Response

"The powerpoint presentation at the beginning of the day was a little dramatic, kind of boring. Other than that, nothing. But don't come here if you don't want to spend 4 years in a very rural area. " Report Response
