"I live in a part of the country where there are no DO doctors, therefore I had to do a lot of reading as to what osteopathic medicine is all about." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Not knowing hardly anything about osteopathic medicine other than what I read on the web site and the net, I really enjoyed listening to one of the speakers (dr. b) give his perspective of osteopathic medicine. He has two kids who are DO doctors and both were accepted in MD schools. He told all of us that if he could answer any questions to contact him. This is my third interview and have been accepted at another med school but I think that if accepted, I will come here because of PBL and the personal touch by many of the people. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"THe day went so fast that I wish I had more time to ask questions. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I learned about PBL, osteopathic medicine, and that I need to be a bit more introspective." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Being already accepted in a medical school, I really had second and even third thoughts about coming for the interview. I knew very little about osteopathic medicine before and therefore I was not sure if this was going to be a waste of time and money. However my premed advisor told me that I should keep in the interview because she knows the recruiting people there and they really impressed her about the school and the program. After meeting many of the people, (dr. b, dr. k, and some students), I am now hoping to get accepted there. I like being responsible for my learning, having support from faculty should I need their help, being treated like a professional from day one, and having someone to email or talk to during the application process."
