What impressed you positively?

"By far, the most friendly students I have met to date. I had trouble getting out of the parking lot--I was more or less assaulted by students wanting to wish me well and talk about their school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Absolutely no research has been performed to demonstrate osteopathic medicine. It might work--they just have never proved it in documented, published clinical trials. Once osteopathy is proven effective or ineffective, the school should convert to an MD program (and retain osteopathy if it works). I am also discouraged by the fact that lower tier schools conciously perpetuate the myth that highly ranked schools are "cutthroat"." Report Response
