    hey all,

    this is my first time in this chat room...i've been reading everyone's messages on and off though. anyways, i finally got my first interview at TUCOM (my apps were delayed due to my letters) and was wondering if anyone would like to share that their experiences with TUCOM with me. i'd really like to stay in the bay area for school so i don't want to screw up my interview. any comments and pointers would be greatly appreciated! thx!!!
  2. SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads.
  3. You might want to do a search for more information about interviews and the school. A couple of the current TUCOM students have offered to answer questions about the school and have provided emails. Try going to the Osteopathic section and either look around or do a search. If you cannot find any threads or people to help you out, let me know, and I will try and help. TUCOM has changed since I was there during the pre-clinical years. Therefore, it would be better to have others answer your question. I do know that the interview is still in a panel format though. Unfortunately, TUCOM students are not as ubiquitous on SDN as some of the medical students from other schools are. I am sure you will find something though. Best of luck to you.

    be sure to check out that is a great site for interview questions. I really liked my interview there. Get to know those with whom you are interviewing- (i interviewed with a group of 6 applicants and a panel of 4 interviewers) We all got to know each other really well--stay at the hotel if you can-- and as each member was answering a question i was totally pulling for them to do well- then we could feed off each others answers! it was a great experience! as far a specific questions go, each interviewer had my application right there and asked things directly from it so be sure to have a copy to review before the interview-- i loved that they actually paid attention to the application i had spent so many hours slaving over!!! I was very happy with the interview set-up. Best of luck to you!!!

    If you want to visit the other interviewers, you can visit them at the recommended hotel in the morning during the breakfast they have set up. You get to meet the awesome Dr. Haight. As for the interview, know about your file and specifically why touro? Why DO? and make them known of your clinical experiences with DO's if you have any. I really enjoyed the way TUCOM interviewers knew everything about my file -- so be prepared. I may be leading the tour during that day. Good Luck.
