What are your general comments?

"I think the school could have done a better job in representing itself regarding their mission and how their curriculum reflects that. I was really excited about the school after looking over the website but they didn't relay any of that information at the interview. Disproportionate time spent on MPH, even though im interested in it, my main reason for coming is the D.O. program. The interview was 3 interviews and 6 interviewees in one room, we each got less than 10 min. to talk. But I like Mare Island, it's kind of cute, and the facilities weren't bad. The OMM room and cadaver lab look new almost. I just wish they provided us with more information than what I could already learn on their website." Report Response
