What are your general comments?

"PCOM has it all together. The school is more than 100 years old, which means that they have been there and done that. Their facilities are very modern. Plus, PCOM's student services, teaching methods, and course work are are all top notch. For example, they changed their anatmoy class length because students wanted it, and they added time to help student get ready for boards. So, the school really does care about student concerns. Furthermore, every staff member we talked to was so nice. The woman at the information desk gushed more than my mother about how awesome we all looked in our suites before the interviews. Dr. Nichols, an OMM speacialist, talked to us before the interviews. He told us about rotations and anything else we asked. He is very cool - and he teaches OMM to the 1st years. Finally, PCOM's students are extremely proud of their school. That says to me that PCOM is a great place because its customers, the students who live and work there, are very happy with PCOM."
