"At what time in your life were you a leader?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Something specific to my research (it was about medical ethics, so it was kind of an ethics question as well)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What is the difference between DO and MD? (I prepared for this but I have yet to find an answer that everyone likes. It depends on the interviewer and how much this question means to them. Hopefully you can tell)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, TCOM's website, read about DOs, TMDSAS, mock interviews, reviewed research projects, PS, etc." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The simulation, patient and OMM labs. The possibilities of research. The 99.3% or so pass rate on the COMLEX; 92% pass rate on USMLE. The lunch was also great (took us to a nearby restaurant)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Construction is still going on but it should be mostly done by the entering class of 2009; they purchase a tablet PC for you if you matriculate (I wanted to purchase my own tablet and load it up myself, but they want a technical standard for exams and student programs; this can be good for some people I guess)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is always traffic going into Ft Worth, so if you're not staying in town (like a suburb), leave pretty early." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews. They can schedule them both in the afternoon or one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You'll be done at around 3:30pm at the latest, I think. It was a great experience and the facilities spoke for themselves. The 2nd year students were cool, although I wish we could've spent more time with them since we were running behind schedule. The school is pretty well established, so you can see for yourself. The second interviewer actually spent the majority of the time talking to me about one of my research projects, so I hope that turns out to be a positive." Report Response
