What impressed you negatively?

"We did not get a tour, they said seeing the Mare Island campus would be pointless since we were all applying to Las Vegas, but we could stay after if we wanted. I didn't have time, but I really wanted to see the campus. But I would have rather seen the Las Vegas campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The campus is really not that bad. It is an old naval base, and the buildings (non-campus) are a little run down, but the whole island is clean and pleasant looking. Once you get to the school there are flowers and trees and I think it's quite nice. The panel interview was not so bad either. It was like the others were there for moral support, not to compete or intimidate. Everyone did a great job. The questions were all based of our applications and why we chose osteopathic medcine."
