What are your general comments?

"The day began with about 20 of us seated in the admissions office waiting area. Several students interviewing for the pharmacy school were also in attendance. We were escorted to a conference room and watched a 20 minutes video about the school (extremely boring way to start the day, I started to fall asleep). The group was then split in half, with one half first taking a tour of the health sciences building and the other half being interviewed first. I felt lucky to be in the first group and was interviewed shortly after the video session. Interview was laid back and consisted of 2 male and 1 female doctor asking basic questions in a conversational manner. Next we were taken on a tour of the health facility by a first year D.O. student then given lunch with a few other students. After lunch we were given a bus tour of the entire NSU campus with focus on the new fitness building and the massive library. Also shown the Miami Dolphins practice facility which is on campus (and our guide noted that the Snowflake mascot scenes from Ace Ventura were shot there). Finally we were again taken to the conference room and the Dean of the osteopathic school talked to us about himself, his reasoning behind the attendance policy and his love of medicine as a career. The day began at around 9 AM and was over by approximately 3 PM." Report Response
