"The dean's speech during the interview day was very inspirational and moving." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a HUGE disconnect between what the admissions team was saying about the culture of the medical school and what the students said. They contradicted each other multiple times on issues such as student life, housing, and competitiveness. The admissions team was very deceptive when telling their averages of board passrates and rankings. THey would share data from multiples years previous and skip over the most recent years to try and shine a better light on the school than realistic. When asking the students why they chose that school, every single one said it was because they didn't get into an MD school. I am applying osteopathy because I love the principles of it, not because I couldn't get into an MD school, and the atmosphere was very much one of second-choice bitterness." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Honestly, I interviewed at 5+ medical schools, and this one ranked the very bottom. The interviewers came off very cold and all the student panel would speak about is how they could've gone to an MD school. Their scores are not great and if I were you I would not even apply here" Report Response
