How did you prepare for the interview?

"I studied all of my application materials and made sure to be ready to answer any questions about my experiences and essays, which was good because they did ask questions about my experiences and essays. They had access to everything except GPA and MCAT numbers. I also made sure to brush up on the history and philosophy of osteopathic medicine. I made sure to have good responses prepared for the obvious questions, which they did ask (why do you want to be a doctor, DO, etc.)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The dean describing their modified systems-based curriculum. It sounds awesome! The campus is great, very state of the art with a nice atmosphere too (beautiful portraits of rocky mountain scenery hanging in the hallways, lots of windows, etc.) Everyone was very excited about the school, especially any students I spoke with. It was fun to sit in on an OMM course for a little bit." Report Response
