What are your general comments?

"I was accepted to this school. After I looked at the pros and cons of the schools I interviewed with this was my number 1 choice DO school. This school is small but has great research opportunities and access to some really cool technology. The interview day was slightly intimidating because the overall feel of the day was very business like, but that showed me the rigor and prestige of the academics at this school and gave me the confidence to know if I decide to go the DO route I will be at a school that will ensure my success."
