What impressed you positively?

"That they don't make you sit through four hours of propaganda about the school, they are very personal, Kathie Schafer is a jewel and makes everyone feel very comfortable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They don't have any kind of presentation on the school or the curriculum. Its basically an informal meeting with Kathie Schafer in the admissions office after everyone is done with their interviews, Q and A session. After interviewing at DMU where they really sell the school, it came as a surprise. But I had done a lot of research on the school on my own, and have friends there, so I didn't feel like I was not getting enough info (although other people might have felt that way). MSU's reputation speaks for itself, at any rate." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You can take a dissection class if you are unhappy with having anatomy taught by prosection." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was the most laidback interview I have had. It you get Dr. Gorbis (one of the OMM instructors), you are very lucky. This man is very kind and gentle in the interview. In fact, it was so stress free, I had to wonder "whats the catch?" But there was no catch, I was accepted a few days later." Report Response
