What impressed you positively?

"the student giving the tour, she was very enthusiastic and personable. she was wearing flip flops even though I knew for a fact the school had a dress code. the OPP fellow giving us a speech about OMM during our lunch, he was very fired up and made me feel very excited about learning OMM if admitted in a D.O. program. the facilities seemed top notch and very modern. the dean was very informative and seemed like a good person to know and to receive advice from. his speech about medicine at the end of the day made me want to be admitted in medical school very bad, thank god I was." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the actual interview was pretty short (20-25 min.) and I thought I preformed badly and wished for a little more time to speak with the interviewers, but it all worked well in the end I suppose " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"if you plan to go to NSU, plan to spend all 4 years in Florida. the winters in Ft. Lauderdale get to a chilling 60 degrees. DO NOT decline an interview for NSU based on their dress code and attendance policy, go and find out for yourself what the school is all about. after touring the facilities and what the school has to offer the dress code and attendance were not even a factor in my decision whether I would attend NSU or not. trust me on this :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"very short interview (20-25 min) with 3 faculty members at once. each person asked me several questions in random order and I answered the best I could with the amount of prep. I had. I had to spread my attention (eye contact) to each interviewer throughout the session but I found it to be easier than staring at one person for 30 min straight. I did not feel stressed during the interview though I left it with a bad impression because I thought I could have answered 1-2 questions better than I did. I think it definitely pays to be very early in interviewing and being yourself when speaking to the admissions committee. " Report Response
