"great school, great clinical years. good staff and dean. they have a lot of vision for a school that has already done so much in its 100 years or so. if you interview at other schools, the feel you get from CCOM sets it apart. interview was 3 to 1. 1 phd, one student, and one DO. after the interview, we had lunch with med students in the cafeteria. gave us a glimpse of what we'll be eating for the next 4 years. and it was pretty good too! definitely my first choice."
