"The school is known for having received a spirituality in medicine award but there was no mention of this or how they incorporate spirituality into their teaching/values AT ALL.

What are your general comments?

"The day started at 9 am with a talk but the VP of admissions - he spoke about the program, the school, and gave advice about interviews (got kind of winded and long). We all then moved to the OMT lab with 5-6 2nd year students for a 30 minute panel, after which we split up into groups and got tours and had lunch. We were about 30 minutes ahead of schedule so there was extra waiting for interviews to begin. Interviews started at 1 pm. Those waiting met with a financial aid rep or were fitted for their white coats (in case of acceptance). I was the third and last person to interview but started interviewing at 2 pm and was done by 2:30. Overall the day was relaxing, the people were friendly, and the school was great.
