"Tiny anatomy lab for as many students as they have. Shared classes with POD and PA students = HUGE lectures. Many students, no formal rotations, weird interview format. Little research going on, didn't seem that "academic" to me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went to this one osteopathic interview bc I'm from Des Moines originally. I did the interview in the same week as a University of Iowa interview - if I hadn't I would have probably been more impressed. The school is a factory - HUGE class size, especially when combined with the PODs and PAs. Facilities are kind of nice, but you can get into the ghetto if you search around. The anatomy lab was disappointing, and I wasn't impressed with the 3rd and 4th years of the school." Report Response
