What impressed you positively?

"That they try to ascertain your empathy level during the interview process (not sure how effective it is though). Some of the staff was nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day starts really early (7:30) . 1:1 interview was rushed and the interviewer was cold. The day was disorganized at times. There was no breakfast for applicants, but there was breakfast for faculty in the same room where the applicants were (strange). Pomona is in the *really* bad part of the LA metro (eastern suburbs/Inland Empire) (about 1 hour from good areas with traffic), known for dangerous levels of smog especially during the summer. While there are beautiful mountains close by they are not visible/barely visible on most days due to the smog. This will also limit enjoyment of the outdoors in most cases , negating the advantages of the socal weather. Temperatures during summer are similar to phoenix (100+). As others have mentioned, the school is built in a cheap looking strip mall area patrolled by aggressive security (meant to keep the homeless element from dt Pomona out). The anatomy lab looked pretty cheap with home depot type buckets next to the bodies." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there's no breakfast offered, not even a snack." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It you can get past the bad Inland Empire location, smog and undesirable neighborhood/campus you can likely learn medicine here. Faculty seemed average for a DO program, not the worse I've seen, not the best. Yes you can live in nicer neighborhoods nearby and commute to school (Claremont) but Claremont is basically an island surrounded by undesirable areas." Report Response
