"Dress code, assigned seats, attendance taking, and the rural-ish location." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They would not focus on how they were different from medical schools and other DO schools. Almost all the students I spoke with applied to both and it would have been nice to hear propaganda about how DO is better." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The airport is ridiculously tiny and there is never anyone there so do not show up more than an hour before. The city is really spread out so either rent a car or be prepared to spent upwards of $40 on cabs. Get ready to have a relaxed day and enjoy getting to know the other students. Good luck!!"
