    Vinny,
    I interviewed at Akron in 2003 and got an alternate slot. The interview process is much different than ST E's. It was 90% clinical rapid fire questions plus a written test. They interview everyone in one day so it is fast and brutal. The program itself seems very good, they have numerous clinical sites throughout akron and even columbus and Dayton. It has a good reputation and they accepted 33 students out of 110+ applicants for this class starting in June. They have prerequesites before you start the program such as a grad stats class but you already have your masters they would like that, they were big on taking grad classes before I applied. Like I said I din't get in but I was/am an alternate but the interview was more formal and much more clinically focused. Hope that helps.
