What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with PCOM-Georgia branch. The interview seemed very low stress, which I've found to be not uncommon of the newer DO schools I've interviewed with. They even told us before the interview that they were not going to ask any outlandish questions, and they held true to that. " Report Response
