What impressed you positively?

"Roger Corbman is as friendly as everyone says. He tells things like it is. He doesn't hide anything - good or bad about the school. He emphasizes that if you don't think Touro is for you, then you shouldn't go here. I liked the Anatomy lab, the OMM lab, the friendliness of all the students. They let you know if you're accepted a week from the day you interview. Also, if you're accepted, you have to deposit $2000 to reserve your seat. But if you choose to attend a different campus, then they give you $1900 back." Report Response

"I think I was well prepared, so I wasn't caught off guard by anything." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's a great school. It is one big building, but they are adding another building before the next entering class starts. They are also trying to start a veterinary program, and the nursing students, as well as PA students are in the same building with DO students. The curriculum is split into two semesters: 3 blocks/semester. Each block is 6 weeks long. OMM meets once a week on Tuesday for a 2 hour lab and 1 hour lecture - the class is split with about 65 students and 8 professors during OMM lab. Exams are held for 1 week after the 6th week - anywhere from 6-9 exams. Overall, a great school and a great place to live. Housing is pretty cheap, too." Report Response
