"Predictable interview, MD interviewer for a DO school (WTF?), decentralized campus, felt more like a business than a school, apparently hard to get to now that I have tried it, strict dress code, no food or drinks allowed ANYWHERE, mixed reviews about school/administration, farthest away, maybe winter since about a dozen people mentioned the "lake effect" and said there would be a few feet of snow from October to March" Report Response
