What impressed you positively?

"Nice campus, new buildings going up, curriculum (all classes with DO students, summers off, not going to waste your time with unneeded extras), early clinics, hospitals that you will be rotating through, Dean and faculty, and they are setting up residency affiliations with hospitals (attempt to ensure all students that graduate a residency program)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Pomona is a dump, but surrounding cities are nice. It is 45 minutes away from Los Angeles. Housing is expensive. (I am from socal so I knew this going in). New buildings are delayed until January. Cadavers are shared with 8 students!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Loved the dean and faculty because they are aware of the residency shortage and actually gave me a decent answer. Talked about the 2015 vision and how their program is geared to train you as a physician first then a podiatrist. Really care about the students and have safety nets to catch troubled students before they are booted from the program." Report Response
