What impressed you positively?

"Everything. Even the bookstore lady did. While we were waiting for our interview or for others to get done, we could walk around the building. Me an one other interviewee went down to the bookstore and no sooner than we got 10 steps in the door, the bookstore lady started talking our ear off about how good the univ is. Now, I know that could not have been staged in any way so it is impressive that someone not even directly affiliated with the College had such great things to say about it. Also, you can park within 100 feet of the door with the farthest parking spot that I saw was 100yards away!! Also, while we were sitting in the room waiting for our interview the students would even come in and say hi and talk to us about OSU-COM and try to calm us before we went into the interview." -Posted 10/29/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"ABSOLTELY NOTHING, and I mean that in the biggest non-buttkissing way possible. I know a lot of people say that but I love the size, the students, and the faculty, and administration that we met. They were all extremely helpful and wonderful people. Wait, there was one complaint. For lunch, they gave us a sandwhich, chips, mixed fruit, and cookie with a bottle of water. Great huh? not if you don't like Mayo, Tommatos, or Leuttece. Or if you don't like oatmeal rasin cookies. Other than that the chips were fine... At least the meal was healthy." -Posted 10/29/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They did not suggest any hotel for me to stay in so I ended up staying in one in the ghetto because I didn't know any better. SO just a little FYI, ask them where they would suggest you stay if you are coming from far enough away to spend the night in Tulsa." -Posted 10/29/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The first thing we did was interview. As we were sitting in the room waiting 2nd years kept coming in and saying hi. They were all in a class right next to the room, so whenever they would come out to use the restroom, or whenever they had a break they would always come in. Each group of interviewers was a little different in the time that they liked to interview you. The one I went in only really tried to keep you for about 15 minutes, the other kept people up to 35 minutes. SO don't let that worry you if your interview is really short or long. Everyone that I inverviewed with was great, I really hope to see all of them there in August (assuming I get in too). It was funny because the students that came in there could tell if we had interviewd yet or not bacause after we got done we all had a big smile on our face. I have known I was going to go here for about 5 months now, so as soon as I got the interview, I quit doing my other supplementals. So, hopefully I do get in here. Good luck on your interview if you are going for one. They are all great people so you have absolutely nothing to worry about (As is that helps or 20,000 people haven't already told you that)." -Posted 10/29/2004 | Report Response
