"How do you solve problems in general?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over my secondary essays and personal statement; previous interviews at other schools helped ease the nervousness" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing (very state-of-the-art and innovative), the location is gorgeous (there was not one building on campus that didn't have a fantastic view of downtown Ft. Worth), the area is lovely (cultural district: botanical gardens, museums, theaters, etc.), and the people are incredbly nice and courteous. The 99% pass rate on the COMLEX (the D.O. version of the USMLE) ain't bad either!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Long school year, tests every 2 weeks...but I hear it's something easy to get used to." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's no continental breakfast, eat before you get there. Also, there is a long stretch of time in the morning (if your first interview is at 8am) where you have nothing to do but sit around. They tell you you can just walk around campus and explore independently, but honestly, I don't think you'd get much out of that unless you got to sit in on a class or something (which we couldn't do, there were tests going on that day)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both interviews were really great. You will definitely be asked about your motivation/interest in Osteopathy so be sure to brush up on its basics. At first I was quite skeptical about the D.O route, but TCOM (and even the interviewers) really sold me on it. I wouldn't be surprised if I rank this school above some other medical schools in TX...it's really one of the best of its kind in the country." Report Response
