"The faculty and staff were very welcoming and seem to care about the students. In particular, the Associate Dean did a great job of answering all of our questions and was very open about the mission/direction of the school and the type of student/physician they wanted to train.

The campus community seemed very supportive of one another and our student ambassador talked about how everyone is friendly and works together to get good grades. The admins who spoke to us were much friendlier and more articulate than other admins who I had spoken to on other interviews.

"Everyone that talked to us that day from the school, including the interviewers, was very nice and welcoming." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students, OMM class, staff, dean" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location really can't be beat! The cost of living on the island is reasonable ($500 split between some people in a big house) and the weather is great! If you are looking for a dual degree, this is a perfect set up to achieve it and not pay more. Also, the curriculum focuses on being a team member with the PAs, PharmDs, MPH students, etc. The school got back to me as promised with the decision, too." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice location, sounds like they have a great global health curriculum for DO/MPH students, which is what I'm interested in. Facilities technologically advanced." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the school grounds were nice, actually. It is a coastal area, so if you aren't used to that, then it may be surprising. However, it is very green on campus. Dr. Haight was encouraging and this is the first school that I have interacted with the Dean of Students/Admissions this much. This school is perfect for the person that wants to do international medical aide. They have a global health program and the MPH would mean you could make a difference even after you came back to the states. The students didn't seem as stressed as they were at some of the more competitive schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the students and faculty member I met. Loved the anatomy lab and OMM room. Campus was beautiful on a sunny day." More from this Member | Report Response

"School location, buildings, and esp students." More from this Member | Report Response

"They took the time to really read my application and come up with focused and specific questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students at the school seemed to enjoy it there. The school is very near san fran and the town had a generally good feeling to it. The OMM lab is a great facility. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendliness of students & staff" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is NOT AS BAD as you think. Sure, some of the buildings are a bit old, but you're on an island, there are tons of eucalyptus trees, grass, etc. I like having green on a campus, so I like it. Also, the admissions director was really nice, and the interviewers were more laid back than at other schools. Also the anatomy lab is nice - second floor, windows, light." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight's assurances were quite comforting, as was the friendly demeanor of all the students we spoke with. The community spirit impressed me as a strong asset of the school. I also got the impression that they are, as a professional school, quite competent at producing quality clinicians, which counts, obviously, for quite a lot. On the other hand, this is not a research institution, there is no associated hospital, and it didn't appear that many faculty were full-time, as has historically been the case at most all D.O. schools. There are trade-off's at any school, so just know what you want and what you're getting into." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relatively good rotations available in CA. Anatomy is dissection. Dr. Haight is great and helpful, too bad its not for a better school." More from this Member | Report Response

The Anatomy lab is awesome, and the lecture halls are well laid out for the students with plenty of leg room, table space allows for laptops and note pads for each student. Library is pretty nice also." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area around the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab. We got to watch 2nd years disecting. SF is a great place to live and be a medical student. Close to my family and friends. Vallejo isn't as bad as I thought it would be. " More from this Member | Report Response

"anatomy lab, systems based curriculum" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student gave the tour was very honest and gave me a good idea of what the school is really like." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight is a riot, and his experience and honesty make for a great impression. The students are uniformly enthusiastic and straightforward about how changes in the curriculum are shaping the Touro education. It is a small program that seems very open, with plenty of help available and an eye toward the future. Lunch was tasty, too. The weather can't be beat." More from this Member | Report Response

"not much" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students dissect whole cadavers rather than viewing pre-dissected prosections. There is alot of research going on that students can participate in. The campus is tucked away and remote, very quiet and charming. The students all seemed happy and enthusiastic. Dr. Haight was incredibly insightful and commiserated with our plights this late in the cycle. He offered email notification. The school has so much potential for growth. The group interview was wonderful because they had taken the time to find out about you and ask directed questions they had prepared. They had examined our applications for one week prior. Very impressive school altogether. " More from this Member | Report Response

They spun their lack of local rotations into a positive (kind of have to). Also they have international rotations available. This school in 10 years will be a serious contender in facilities and will be a very nice campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab is amazing (looks and smells). The students seemed enthusiastic. Most interviewers were down-to-earth and sympathetic toward students (i.e. looking for the good in you) rather than hostile or skeptical. Dr. Haight genuinely cares about enrolling quality students and especially those who have something unique to bring to the school (and he's good at it).

"Small school, more one-on-one time with professors, the fact that students have a voice, and that the school is trying to expand, which means that if I want to start an organization, or do research the profs and deans are more readily accepting of those opportunities. Small school means very family oriented, and encouraging, and supportive . Outside the city of Vallejo, is San Francisco, which is an amazingly diverse place. Don't have to go far for excitement." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers, Dr. Hartwig especially, made it clear that the faculty are a tight-knit group who are dedicated to teaching. Very good OMM instruction is available for those who wish to pursue it, but specialized training is not forced on students. Options in roation sites. Quiet campus with a certain charm." More from this Member | Report Response

"The part when Dr. Haight spoke to us about our applications and how we were already screened pretty well prior to being invited to interview. He stated that even if we are not accepted at TUCOM-MI we will be accepted elsewhere eventually. And even though this is hard to believe if you have not been accepted into a medical school yet, his words are true. The anatomy lab was impressive and the student guide was able to show us a cadaver. Students may choose to do their 3rd + 4th year rotations almost anywhere in the U.S. although they are pushing for more students to stay in the Bay area in the future. Also there is a new Genesis curriculum that sounded very promising. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was impressed by the student tour guide...she had a lot of good things to say about the school and didn't shy away from saying what she didn't like (school is a bit disorganized at times). Overall she was happy with her choice there. Anatomy lab seemed good too. Also, I liked the fact that the interviews were done in a group and open-file. This allowed them to ask specific questions about you that you were probably more prepared to answer (I felt). And with other applicants there, it took the focus off of me some. I felt pretty comfortable by the end of the hour. All of the staff seemed friendly and approachable. Also, there's a two-week turnaround on your application status. That's fantastic.

"I could disagree with an earlier positing more. I know who posted that impression. He was a complete jerk. He was negative from the moment he sat down. On the tour he embarassed all of us with his negativity. Dr. Haight saw what was going on before any of us. He just didn't want to be there. He had already interviewed at several schools. He says 10. Who knows. All I know is that he acted like a he was doing us a favor by being there. I was unsure if Dr. Haight would call him on it. All of us really liked each other and we all felt connected. Dr. Haight told him that he should not take that attitude into the interview and he still did it. What a waste of everyone's time. OK, I will buy that the Island isn't what I expected. There is a lot of construction going on. The campus was nice though. The anatomy lab was the best I ever saw. The students were all positive. I didn't get accepted, but if offered a chance to go I would take it. I heard some rumors about the curriculum changing and that concerns me, but only because they have such a good reputation as is."

"Dr. Haight is absolutely amazing. I guarantee any stress you felt walking in will be relieved in the first 10 minutes of meeting with him. Very clean (odorless)anatomy lab and block exam schedule. This depends on student preference, some schools give exams every week. Also,the schedule is great for even the most reformed/conservative of Jews (classes end early on Fridays and all holidays off). Also housing off campus seems affordable. Oh yes, one more thing....you will have a decision within 2 weeks. In fact I received notice of acceptance the Friday after my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight is just as good, or better, than everyone says. If I was to go to this school it would because of the things he said. He really makes you feel good about being selected for an interview.

"This is old news...but Dr. Haight really is a sincere man who just wants the students to do their best in the interview and he did an amazing job talking with all of us before the interview; he has a great sense of humor and we laughed a lot, so that helped most of us relax. He had us each talk about ourselves with the whole group of 12 students so we could get comfortable with each other since we would have to speak in front of each other during the actual interview (there were 2 groups of 6 people being interviewed that day). This was really helpful; I felt like I knew enough about the other applicants and they knew enough about me that when questions were asked during the interview I was completely comfortable speaking honestly in front of everyone. Also, the anatomy lab is really nice, the odor is tolerable and there's a great view of trees and buildings and some old Navy ships on the water. The lecture halls are nice with comfortable seats. The library was packed with students studying for their block exams this week; there are plenty of chairs and sofas for everyone to find a comfortable spot to study; the library has all of the books that are needed for a great education at TUCOM, and if you need a book that's not there, they will get it for you. All of the staff and students I met were really friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The new curriculum allows the students to take advantage of more early clinical experiences. I did not rent a car, so I took the ferry into SF. It was definitely worth the $17 round trip ticket. I was bummed when I found out the tours to Alcatraz were booked until the next day. If you are interested in going to Alcatraz, I think you can purchase tickets online before you visit SF. After the interview, a few of us went to the wine vineyards (in Napa), Benicia (where a lot of students live), and downtown Berkeley before taking a flight out of Oakland. I had so much fun touring the area with the other applicants! I am thrilled that TUCOM attracts such fun and interesting applicants, and would be ecstatic to spend the next few years studying with them. Also, I was surprised that one of the faculty members made a joke about the quality of TUCOM’s website. I was actually really pleased by his comment because it showed me that the faculty truly cares about their reputation and strives for continual improvement. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Simply put, Dr. Haight. He spent an our with us at the hotel and about two hours with us in the conference room at the school. This time afforded us the opportunity to get to know each other and ask questions without fear of affecting the outcome of our application. Dr. Haight doesn't vote, so you an ask whatever you want (no matter how dumb or embarassing). You basically get a 3 hour warm-up for your 1 hour interview. I interviewed for the Las Vegas campus so there was no need for a site visit at the Mare Island interview. However, the staff at the Las Vegas campus was great about making time on a weekend to give me a tour of the new campus during my last trip to Las Vegas. The Henderson location is great. Affordable housing, lots to do and great weather. The facility is also brand spankin' new! Stadium seating in the classrooms, brand new anatomy and OMM lab and 10,000 square foot exercise facility. Having come from a major university with a huge campus, I like the idea of everything being inside a single building. " More from this Member | Report Response

Recently interviewed at another school where all the information was being given out as applicants were being pulled for their interviews, so I missed some information on the school and its dress code because of it.

I liked the program, where the students got matched up with a pregnant woman and followed her throughout her pregnancy. That was pretty cool. Admissions staff were nice."

"Dr. Haight, current students, anatomy lab, and even though I thought I would hate it the group interview was really good. When the interviewers put you on the spot, the other interviewees are the ones cheering you on. It really chills out the whole process. " More from this Member | Report Response

"From the moment Dr. Haight, Dean of Admissions, met us at the hotel until at the very end when we walked us to the shuttle to take us back, I felt that he really wanted me and the others to do well. He is so refreshingly honest. No BS and I love that. One of the people interviewing with my group brought her father. Dr. Haight couldn't have been more hospitable. He invited him to tour with our group and even join us for when we had lunch. I overheard the father tell Dr. Haight how much it meant to him to be included. He wasn't my dad, but I almost cried when I heard what he said. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, only Dr. Haight. He meets you in the morning and accompanies you around the whole day. I appreciated his honesty and intergrity about the admissions process. He really makes you feel welcome. The actual school is a whole other story." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight is a very nice person. There was somethings he said that I did not know or think about before about medical school admissions...but at the same time I think he may be overrated by many of the people who post their interview experience here. The anatomy lab is also great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight, the Director of Admissions, spent probably the entire day with us making sure that we got all our questions answered in a straight forward way and to make sure that the entire experience went smoothly. I knew how they interview and that it was different than I had done in the past and was anxious. He relieved the vast majority of my anxiety. I've been to schools where I haven't even met the Dean of Admissions, and he spent the entire day with us. I couldn't have been more impressed by his honesty and the way he sincerely cares. If I get accepted, and I accept their offer, it will be mostly because of him." More from this Member | Report Response

"TUCOM has the best anatomy lab I have seen anywhere! The lighting in the lab is bright, not so bright that it blinds you, but excellent. You can barely detect the smell in there. Plenty of space in the lab. TUCOM is located in the Bay Area, which contains cities (SF, San Jose) where there's a lot to do. But the city of Vallejo does not represent the Bay Area at all. There's on-campus housing close to lecture halls, but is up on the hill. One student told me there's a cafeteria - meal plans...but I'm still not sure about this."

"I was actually impressed by the campus. I was expecting "deserted military base" to mean cold, sterile buildings on a barren, windswept island. I found the initial parts of the island to be a bit run-down, but the area where the campus was located was historical and stately, but modern inside. The campus area was rennovated, and I thought the buildings were attractive. The campus is surrounded by green lawns, trees, and the bay- I think it was very attractive, and actually is the selling point for me for the school- when we were outside it was so quiet, you could only hear the sound of the sprinklers. I thought it was really peaceful. You can also live on the island and walk less than a block to class. There are no security issues because it is a small community and the island has a security check-point to enter. Just my opinion though. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Although it has been expressed over and over, you don't understand how helpful Dr. Haight is until you experience it first hand. His candor, comfort, and compassion was unbelievable. He is truthful, but not blunt, reassuring, but will not lead you on. The caliber of the other applicants was amazing. I could not imagine being on the admissions committee and have the responsibility of decide who gets in and who doesnt... The anatomy lab and OMM lab is spacious... Cool electronic paper towel dispensers... Wireless internet in the works... Happy students! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Haight is the best! His candid comments about the campus and his willingness to answer any and all questions contributed to the great experience. I appreciated the fact that Touro does its best to respect the medical school applicant, unlike other schools that make you feel like beggars in the street asking for handouts. I also like that they provide students the opportunity to do international rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff seemed very friendly and approachable, students seemed happy. Dr. Haight was very open and honest at breakfast and thoughout the entire day.
