It was from 8am - 1 pm, plan to arrive a little early. The day was generally relaxed. Most of consisted of presentations about the school. Then, during those presentations, someone will caome and call out your name, where you'll be taken for the 'real interview' Two people will interview you, in my case one was an M.D. but part of the faculty, the other was a biochemistry professor. They'll ask about 10-12 questions. The questions are vrey general...why medicine, why osteopathic...etc Nothing out of the ordinary. Also, you'll be asked to summerize a a short article which you'd have been given earlier.
After that, they'll take you to lunch (the food was terrible!!) and then a tour of the campus.
Overall, the interview was way more relaxed than i had expected.
Good luck

they asked basic questions, strengths and weakness, how do work in a team, how do you handle conflicts, why do you want to be a DO. They make you read an article and then you have to sum it up. I had a terrible experience with the interviewer, so i didn't get in. But good luck...
