"The facilities are phenomenal. The design and location make it a perfect atmosphere for learning. Not to mention the anatomy lab is on the 6th floor overlooking the city skyline (much better than the typical windowless labs)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The majority of the day was spent just sitting around and waiting for interviews. I was the first to be interviewed, so from 9:45-12:00 I just sat around talking to other interviewees, unfortunately the interview was during Spring Break so we couldn't attend any lectures. It would've been helpful to get more information about financial aid and other stuff." Report Response

"Nothing really, I never imagined the campus would be so beautiful." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was mainly conversational and laid back. They asked questions taylored to my application about my undergraduate school (b/c they hadn't heard of it before), my intership experiences, my graduate studies, and how I got interested in osteopathy. They also asked basic questions about OMM and the differences btw. MD and DO." Report Response
