What impressed you positively?

"The camaraderie of the student body and the anatomy lab facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really turned me off. Some people have commented about the fact the school is a converted warehouse, but that honestly doesn't bother me. I've already had the "big campus" experience and it's not the facility that makes you a good doc...it's the quality of the education and how much work you put in." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I pretty well prepped...I'm just lucky I was in a position where I could afford to fly out on relatively short notice (one week between notification of interview invite and assigned date of interview)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is the lowest stress interview I had. The only formal questions I was asked where why medicine/why D.O. The rest was purely conversational. The students and faculty are so friendly. The students seemed genuinely happy to be there. I feel that in the next couple of years, GA-PCOM will emerge as one of the top D.O. programs in the U.S." Report Response
