"the interviewers were very nice and relaxed, food was quite good" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"If you've been to one of their osteo awarness conferences, you've pretty much seen it all. They showed the same video "a tribute to caring"...can I throw up now? And I didnt learn any new information. But overall it was fine, and didnt really change the impression I had gotten from the conferences." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that it would be all the same info I've heard before" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Not very organized...didnt give us a schedule. Interviewers were very nice, as were students and fellow interviewees. I had been there many times before and my opinion didnt really change. I could go there, but the first semester is absolute hell. They also have the largest fail rate and lowest board scores...so thats definatly not a good thing (and they wont tell you that in the interview). It was the only interview that has had water for me to drink though (actually during the interview), and I appreciate that." Report Response
