What impressed you positively?

"The staff members were great...very friendly and relaxed. The campus is nice-looking and in the middle of a bunch of museums and a botanical garden. The rent in the area seemed pretty cheap. They have an interesting computer program they use in the anatomy lab. They had a quickie seminar on applying for loans." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not too much. My hotel was right next to a train track which had a train every 1/2 hour all night and all morning long. Don't stay at Ramada or Fairfield if you are a light sleeper!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They interview very small groups of students. There are a lot of hills, which is not good for high-heel-wearing people or for the front of your car as you pull out of the parking lot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole thing was very relaxed. I was asked what I knew about osteopathic medicine. The students took us to a restaurant for lunch. The students who hosted us seemed very mature and professional. The interviews are broken up, with each student interviewing at different times, so you could get both your interviews in the morning, or one in the morning and one in the afternoon, or (I guess) both in the afternoon. Then you return to the "home base" and hang out, have your file reviewed for errors, or sit in on a class, until it is time for your next interview. In the middle of the day, they have a presentation about being a D.O., and then the seminar on financial aid." Report Response
