What are your general comments?

"Well the day started off bright and early 8am. Dr. Nichols and a 2nd year took us (11 other people being interviewed) to have breakfast. We all sat down and ate. Dr. Nichols talked about osteopathic medicine and the 2nd year told us the ends & outs of surviving the 1st year. After that we all went down to the "fishbowl" and waited for our interview. Unlike most other posts..our interviews went by quick. PCOM had three sets of interview committees. All interviews were done around 11. After a few of us finished interviewing, we went to a 2nd year lecture. GREAT! Can't Wait! Then a little tour..and the day is over! " Report Response
