What impressed you negatively?

"The school and the interviewers: They handn't read my file, spoke down to us as if we had no idea what osteopathy was, and lectured us as if we were undergraduates talking to a dean at a community college. I swear someone said "Just wait until you...." at some point. Also I didn't see or meet a single faculty member that wasn't an old white male protestant type. They acted as if they are the only PBL Curriculm on the planet. A shamefully insecure bunch of clowns...." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my 1st interview. Am now accepted at 2 other schools....If I would have known then what I know now, I would have walked out after 10 mintues of their schlocky presentation about how professional they are and how great it is that their students all wear buisness atire, their highschool wikipedia demonstration of OM and a hokey lecture about the amount of reading one does in medical school. Earth to Bradenton! We're applying to grad school, not college. We get it already. They wasted my time and money and didn't even read my file carefully. " Report Response
