What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Definitely lacking in the administration/admissions department. Great school, great staff and great people but the admissions people could be a little more on top of things. I had to initiate almost every single interaction, and I was given minimal information about where my interview took place. Should have used webSTAR, but as this was for the BS/DO program and not the regular DO program, it was not used. Still, great experience overall." Report Response
