What are your general comments?

"Pretty good. Everyone talks about Roger Corbman, and he is really nice and breaks the ice well. Very good at his job of getting the interviewees to relax. However the Dean, Dr. Forman, is great as well. He is very open about the school and everything going on. He sells the school on its mission and goals, and he does not sell himself. I think going to school under a Dean like him will be something all the students at Touro look back upon and realize how lucky they were. Regarding the actual interview, so conversational I had a hard time remembering what questions I was asked. I was chatting with the female interviewer on the way to the room, and we walked in already in a discussion completely unrelated to medicine. Very laid back & friendly. Other school should take notes. If you want to find out about the prospective students, get them to open up by talking about other interests, then sneak the semi-masked medical related question in there unexpectedly. You'll avoid those cookie-cutter answers. " Report Response
