What are your general comments?

"I really didnt know what to expect at NSU-COM. But after having interviewed here, I think it's my first pick. Compared to the other places I interviewed at, I think I got the most out of this one because they were very informative of what to expect each year. As with most of us, our main concern is GETTING IN... but at NSU-COM I felt like I was given the equal opportunity to decide if this school matched what I was looking for.And at the end of the day, Dr. Silvagni met with the applicants and gave us a very inspiring talk about medicine.
