What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is extremely new and not as advanced as any other school I've seen. There is a 70% mandatory attendance policy but no required laptop. They only have one SIM man and one harvey. For the SIM man, you have to pay an extra fee and get on a waitlist. To put this into perspective, WVSOM has 15 SIMs and of course they are part of the curriculum. The interview was not organized. We had random people walking in and not knowing what to talk about. I almost fell asleep during one of them. Also there were signs on the elevator saying not to use one of the exits because it was dangerous, and one of the "perks" of the school were the 24 hour security guards that will escort you to the train station or bus stop!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Director of Admissions (Obed) advised us on what to say to the interviewers. He also had us practice by asking us why we are interested in D.O. After the interviews, he did an "unofficial" group interview about how we got our first exposure to OMM/OMT." Report Response
