What impressed you negatively?

"My second interviews is an M.D. doing research at the D.O. school, and he was actually trying to convince me to go to an M.D. school rather than TCOM!! He said that D.O.s are just not as good as M.D.s and that the COMLEX as easier than USMLE, and that people will just never treat them the same. He made it sound like of you get a D.O. degree instead of an M.D., you will have that scar on you for the rest of your life. It was really scary!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interview had lasted for an hour and 20 minutes, and it was absolutely amazing! The gentleman that I was talking to was a D.O./Ph.D., and he treated me like I was a member of his family. He told me everything about him, asked me about my relatives, and when the time came for the ethical questions, he guided me through every step of them. The interview was an absolute breeze.
