What are your general comments?

"I stayed overnight at a friend's place in Ft. Worth to avoid morning traffic from Dallas. The previous night I drove to the school to make sure I knew where I was going to go. I arrived at 7:30 am and met up with the other applicants. The first group of interviewees had an interview at 8am. My 1st interview was at 8:45am at the Patient Care Center with a D.O. (Family Medicine). The first interview went smoothly. Afterwards I met up again with the group of applicants for a tour and orientation presentation. After that we were driven to lunch at the Botanical Gardens by two second year students. Both students were very informative and friendly and gave plenty of advice. After lunch we drove back to campus and continued the tour of the anatomy labs and lecture rooms as well as the student lounges. Next, we had our afternoon interviews. Mine was not until 2pm. However, my second interviewer was not even on campus on that day so I ended up getting a replacement. A PhD replaced the DPM that should have interviewed me and I am glad that this happened. The PhD was very engaging and asked a lot about my general background what interests me about Osteopathic medicine. Overall, I am glad that I was interviewed by the PhD because it served to balance the DO interviewer in the morning. " Report Response
