What impressed you positively?

"The admin/faculty is an all-star cast of podiatrists and they seem to care a lot about training future podiatrists. The new building is going to be nice, new lecture halls, lab/research space, clinics. The weather was sunny and 85 when I interviewed, just what you'd expect in November." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students have class 35-40 hours a week, Pomona isn't the nicest area, the cost of living is high, and the anatomy lab is not moving to the new building (same old lab for incoming students for awhile)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they had no Northwest rotations set up. The DO program has a northwest track so I thought that maybe the pod program could easily jump into some of those place for rotations, not the case yet." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it's going to be a great program. If you are from California and want to stay there for residency and to practice (at least So Cal) then GO to Western. They've already set up some great programs at top notch medical facilities. Everywhere is is somewhat of an unknown at the moment and will be until they can provide a list of residencies and directors they have sent students to or have some sort of relationship with."
