What impressed you positively?

"Abosolutely everything. I almost didn't apply to WVSOM because it was in WV (never been there but heard stories-ha)but was close to where some family live in Virginia. I had also heard from a friend that it was considered to be one of the hardest to get into and a highly respected school. I interviewed at Edward Via in Virginia the next day. All I can say is, I am keeping my fingers crossed, I am on the waitlist, this is my top school of choice and I have interviewed at six Osteopathic Schools. I have been accepted into all but two. My credetials are top notch, this lets me know that WVSOM is definetly hard to get into. I can't say enough about the facilities, the people and the town (I come from a huge city and was not brought down by the very small town atmosphere). I loved every minute I was there. ESPECIALLY my stay at the General Lewis Inn. Fabulous." Report Response
