What impressed you positively?

"Campus/Pomona wasn`t as bad as some redneck/trash from Hicksville is likely to say" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That there are a lot of rumors going around about the school. I noticed it online and also the students I talked to told me about it. The dean had to hold a special talk during lunch time with the 1st and 2nd years to directly address the rumors. The dean and the students there are dumbfounded as to where the rumors started. I think it has something to do with DO schools getting more attention in the media and competing for students and just so happen that Western U has been consistently getting the best students with the highest gpa/mcat of DO schools. But everyone should talk to the dean, he`s a great guy, very open and honest to your questions. Clearly the person that posted the previous comment did not speak up to the Dean, or he just wanted to pass the rumor on, but the pass rate for the boards is 89%. You can tell for some reason he`s bitter/irrational about the school by hinting that students with high gpa/mcat have no other standards if they just want to go to a school in LA. I mean, Western U is not like amazingly great in every aspect but it has great clinical years and an impressive matchlist and is definitely worth my time." Report Response
