What impressed you positively?

"Facilities (OMM lab, Anatomy lab, overall campus and location). Anatomy lab is overdone though. Anatomy is anatomy and you learn it or you don't!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The high tuition for out-of-staters. The students kept saying "you get what you pay for." Well, I am going to pay for a great education. Will I get one out of WVSOM? People say that it is what you make of it, but if I wanted to go to a medical school just to learn the material myself, I would go to the cheapest place just as long as I could be certified to be a doctor. WVSOM just left too many unanswered questions for me. But maybe I did not investigate enough. You will love the school however! " Report Response

"How beautiful the country is. I would have planned my trip to see more of the surrounding towns and countryside. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved it here, but there were other D.O. schools that felt more like I fit there better. The price is an issue for me (especially with today's economy). Good luck. You will do fine if you know your application inside and out, and if you can elaborate on it. " Report Response
