"Overall, it was great. I am OOS, and feel like the cost is worth the education. The Dean and Director of Admissions were all straight forward-- After a short presenation/breakfast my group went to interview. I had three interviews, 30 minutes each. two were students and one was an MD. then we went back and had a presentation about the school's technology/computers. Lunch after that-presentation about financial aid(which there is plenty of!), and then a tour, which included the anatomy labs and looking at cadavers. We were done around 2pm. " Report Response
