    I will be interviewing on April 18 at COMP! I was wondering if any of you have some Qs that
    you think I should be asking? Who does the interviewing? Any new developments or focus
    on campus that is noteworthy? Any complementary alternative medicine being taught?
    Medical Spanish?
    I anticipate forming great friendships in Pomona. I grew up in CA (bay area), am a returned
    Peace Corps Volunteer, and have been working as a massage therapist with the NFL Detroit
    Lions for 3 years.

    Hi Guatemala,
    I interviewed at COMP a couple of weeks ago, and can tell you that it is really a relaxed, laid-back sort of interview. Both of my interviewers were DOs, and it was more of a conversation than an interview. I am not sure if it is the norm, but mine was closed file and they did not ask me any questions from my application....in fact, they said that they had not even seen my application! But, that was fine with me, since I would really rather talk about stuff that I have not had a chance to put in my application.
    As far as questions go, none were really difficult. My advice is to go through the Univ. website, and also to look up other threads right here on SDN pertaining to interviews at COMP....I'm quite certain that there are a couple. Other than that, know your reasons for COMP, for medicine, and for osteopathic medicine.
    The students were really nice at COMP, and were eager to answer questions........so, utilize them.
    Good luck!
