"Nothing really. Knowing who I would be interviewing with a few days before the interview may have been nice but they do provide you with that information when you arrive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was very positive! Everyone was friendly and welcoming. They did not want to just drill you with hard eithical questions in the interview, rather just get to know you as a person to see if you would be a good fit. They did just add on a new building (not funded by tuition money!) to the campus with more patient simulators and a large OMM lab. It's good to see that the school is receiving funding and keeping up with technology to help their students. The only major downfall is the size and location of the town but you are only there for your first 2 years, and coming from a school where the town was 6,000 you get used to it! " Report Response
