What impressed you negatively?

"My first interviewer. He was an OMM specialist (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine) and seemed like he had seen enough applicants with little or no first-hand D.O. experience. He was very aggressive from the beginning of the interview, asking if I was a Bulls... artist (but said it as a statement) and why I didn't marry the mother of my child (even though I did, was wearing my wedding band, and mentioned the words "my wife" 2 or 3 times in my personal statement), and also mentioned TWICE that there had been a "D.O. in my family since 1913" and pointed out his wall o' D.O. forefathers (also twice). This type of questioning continued until the final 5 minutes of the interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing about the school, but Fort Worth is very interesting. Small/rural town whose residents typically have lots of money. Interesting dynamic downtown and surrounding area." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't think they liked that I did not have any firsthand D.O. experience. I finally had enough of my first interviewer and responded to him as such. My second interviewer was much friendlier and interested, though the questions were run-of-the-mill. BTW, the 2nd years that gave us the tour all smiled when they heard who my first interview was."
