What impressed you positively?

"The school seems to be located in a quaint town outside of Las Vegas that is very similar to your typical suburbia. It has great facilities and faculty that seems to not only care about the students' education, but listens to suggestions from students as well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My tour of the facility was SHORT (maybe 15 minutes). The tour guide was extremely unenthusiastic and wasn't even aware he was giving a tour to DO applicants. There aren't a lot of residency positions in the local area." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the Dean of Admissions, Roger Corbman, had retired. From reading all the SDN feedback, I was really looking forward to meeting him!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview was short...much shorter than the other applicants which made me nervous. One of the interviewers was either non-responsive or frowning for most of the interview which made me extremely stressed. I was hoping it would have been more relaxed. I thought I did terrible, but I was accepted, so maybe I am a bad judge of my own performance. I would suggest this: if the interviewer seems very formal, answer very formally. Do not try to lighten the situation (which is a bad habit I have). " Report Response
