What impressed you positively?

"This is the #1 D.O. school in the country! They are extremely advanced. There is no dress code for lectures, you get your own seat for the whole year, they have 15 SIMs (one of them is a little boy that randomly gets up on his own- scary). The medical school is the only thing that is on the campus- no dental, etc. I liked it a lot!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"DO NOT take the VA 311, it is the scariest road ever. You end up almost sideways on top of a mountain with no safety railings on the sides. Know as much as you can about osteopathic medicine. Try to get an afternoon appointment so you can talk to the current students before your interview!" Report Response
