What are your general comments?

"The experience was awsome! Really liked the campus, they were doing a ton of expansion (research facilities, new lecture halls, recreation center). I really liked that you can get clinical exposure in your first two years. They have the highest board pass rates out of any DO school, and I think that the weekly tests ensure that their students keep up on studying. The interview day goes from about 8:00 AM to 2:00PM, and they provide lunch and breakfast. Be prepared to have a lot of waiting time. Their are three panels of 3 people in each (D.O., 4th year med, and a faculty) that interview you. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The tuition is very expensive, probably the most out of any D.O. school." Report Response
