What impressed you positively?

"the curriculum options with PBL and IDP. the facilities seemed nice and clean but it's just 1 building, and classes are mainly down 1 hallway. My interviewers seems really nice and were really trying to get to know me and not bust my balls." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the dress code, students seemed unhappy, the bitter cold weather with mounds of snow everywhere. I also asked about the dress code IN the anatomy lab and you have to keep your dress code while doing your cadaver disection... They have to wear ties and slacks while they cut up bodies!? not allowed to drink water outside of the cafeteria (no water in classrooms), the presenter for the day kept on mentioning ''the other osteopathic school in pennsylvania'' as an exceptional school which i thought was kind of weird." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"i talked to several students outside of the interview day (i went to erie 1 day early) and ALL of the students i talked to were jaded and disenfranchised by the school's administration and their rules... many of which are enforced to the 'T' and for no real substantial reason. Also, i didn't know the school has such a high first time COMLEX pass rate (something in the mid-upper 90's)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"interesting day. very cold.. chilling to the bone. weird regulations and rules. sad looking students. nice building but small (no real campus). nice interviewers (standard interview questions), respectable 1st and 2nd year curriculum option. 3rd and 4th year i hear students have to be nomadic (for the best affiliations). overall, interesting to say the least... and definitely not on the top of my wish list."
