"Lack of hospital affiliation. I got different answers as to how many students they would be adding to the class and what the time frame for adding students would be.

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed the interview. I liked that they get the interviews done before lunch. I left with good impressions of the school, but I think I would like a more culturally diverse environment. Seems like I would run out of things to do in AZ, but then again I will be studying most of the time anyway. I do like golf, and there is plenty of that. Some students I talked to seemed to really love it, others seemed like they settled on a DO school. The students experiences seemed to vary when it came to rotations, it seemed like it was up to the student to setup the rotations, which I guess gives more freedom as to where you rotate, but to me it seems like the school should make the rotations more standardized."
