"Things looked pretty new. The gym was decent." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was generally not impressed. It just seemed like one of those new schools that shot up in the last few years that give DO schools a bad name. I don't think anyone would go here if they had a choice. The school is just a big, ugly, one-story warehouse so there really is no campus to speak of. The students were nice, but they didn't seem enthusiastic or happy. The few I talked to also didn't seem very smart honestly. The school couldn't tell us much about the rotating sites for 3rd and 4th year. Sounds like they don't have much lined up and their students will be on their own to set up rotations. Yuck. I will go here if I don't get in anywhere else, but I hope I don't have to." Report Response
