What impressed you positively?

"Really great campus. A bit dismal on the outside, but inside, the facilities are great. VERY BIG future plans. They offer an OMM fellowship which is major points for me. They spun their lack of local rotations into a positive (kind of have to). Also they have international rotations available. This school in 10 years will be a serious contender in facilities and will be a very nice campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that I'm applying now. Again, the particle lab will probably change a lot of what the school is doing/able to do. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing really, the group interview was pretty unique. But it kind of sells a candidate short. I could tell the other kids were a bit nervous (as was I). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"So basically the interview process is so. They bring you into a room with around 4-5 other interviewees. They spoke to us in a line one question each, a total of about 4-5 questions a person overall. They'll ask you what you think about what the other person said, which means you can't daze off at all. Overall, I came into the interview a bit hesitant, but felt like the school presented itself in a great way, opportunities are abundant, and I think I did a good job in presenting myself in an honest fashion. I feel like I know and have been around enough osteopaths to have my own opinion about the profession, which I feel is essential for the more competitive osteopathic schools. " Report Response
