What impressed you positively?

"The clinical rotations choice (locations) seem extensive, flexible and very diverse. They presented them as a good foot in the door for future residencies and therefor they tried to be very accomodating. The review sessions provided by the school to prepare for the boards was also impressive. " -Posted 03/31/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities were the oldest of all schools I visited (especially OMT room but not the lecture hall), also not seeing the anatomy lab was a big negative (every other school showed us their facility - all cadavers being in storage). They should install a video system so others can see the facility even if dissections are in progress (such as for students visiting the school) and that would fit in with the telemedicine concept (for course work). Also it seemed that there were few T.A. for the anatomy lab and OMT than at other programs. " -Posted 03/31/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"First they make extensive use of the waiting list system forcing you to make other plans that can still be cancelled (not always easy - but often expensive). Also only 2 spots remained when i interviewed- with 9/10 of the class being in state the odds as an out of state applicant at this point in time seem ridiculously low. I was left with the distinct impression that at best I was being interviewed for a place on the waiting list and nothing more (coming from MA it makes for a very long trip and very low odds). Also it seemed that OSU was the state "little known jewel" when comparing the quality of the program to the apparant in state reputation. " -Posted 03/31/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good to very good - the program seems as solid as the reputation. The admissions staff is helpful and organized (a right balance). If I decided to not go to med school and wait out a year to tie up some loose ends I would certainly reapply to this school. " -Posted 03/31/2004 | Report Response
