How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN and School Website. Read up about podiatry because they will first take you to the foot clinic and have you shadow some podiatrist there. Everyone is really friendly, so ask tons of questions. Be interested and be open minded. I had a great time shadowing the podiatrist and speaking to the third and fourth year students that were with him." Report Response

"The closeness of the foot clinic, the fact that everything is located in between two buildings, the residence area (Heritage, looks over central park), the friendliness of the staff/students/doctors, the board rates!" Report Response

"The area is the ONLY thing that has me worried. But there is a shuttle service provided at night time for those that want to go back to their apartments." Report Response

"SDN prepared me really well. Look over as many questions as possible." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you are staying at Hotel Newton, be prepared to know that the room is really small. However, don't forget you are there for business (to get into this school), I utilized my night by going over practice questions and having an outline of points I would like to cover. You should go in with an open mind to this school because it's not about if the school accepts you as much as do you accept this career choice and what the school can provide you. It made the experience fun for me! Enjoy yourself." Report Response
