"Interview 1: was very conversational, we did discuss my file and specifically by grades from when I first started college, which was a little different for me because I had never had an open file interview. A specific question was: If you get multiple acceptances how will you rank the schools and decide where to go?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Interview 2: was with the admissions staff. Once again was very conversational. A specific question: Tell me about your previous career and how you came to decide you wanted to go into medicine instead? (I'm parapharasing) " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Interview 3: was a little wierd. The interviewer was very nice, but a little dry and it was hard to read my impression on him. More "interview style." Specific question: Do you think women have a harder time in this profession than men?" Report Response

"How warm and friendly the school was along with everyone I met there (especially the students). It truly feels like they all consider each other family." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Sounds like the job market might make the job hunt for my husband difficult, but nothing negative about the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, be prepared that the town is very small, but surprisingly most of the students I talked to were from big cities (like Minneapolis, Chicago, etc.) and said that they didn't feel like they were missing out as there are some larger towns within 90 miles or so and also it helps to have a distraction-free place to live." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great day! If you are truly there because you are interested in Osteopathic Medicine, make sure you take the time to go into the museum. It is incredible and is right there in the same building as the admissions office!" Report Response
