What impressed you positively?

"The staff of student affairs tried very hard to put all the interviewees at ease. When touring the OMT class the professor placed her hand on my shoulder and said she was glad to see me. Everyone seemed very sincere and caring. The med students all knew each other and seemed very close. All the students I met seemed very focused on their studies." -Posted 02/04/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students contribute to their community by helping out a schools and things like that. The area around the college seems very economically depressed. Many homeless people, etc. I feel their efforts should be improving these peoples quality of life. I didn't see or hear that the students were involved in any charity type healthcare like free clinics." -Posted 02/04/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. OSU's website says it all. I spent alot of time searching for professional comfortable shoes to wear during the tour. The place was so small, I did not need them." -Posted 02/04/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was very pleasant. Leah with student affairs was involved in the orientation and led each applicant to and from the interview. She was very friendly, and put me at ease. Their were 8 applicants. During the orientation we were informed only 16 spots remained. If you are accepted, you will be notified via fedex. If you are rejected or waitlisted you will be notified via US mail. They said to hang in there if you are waitlisted because about 40 to 50% of the class comes from the waitlist. My interview was on a Weds and the committee will be discussing this round's interviews the following Fri. It seems like you should know right a way if you are acptd. The medical students came into the room and asked each of us who would be interviewing us (we were told during orientation). The students gave us feedback on the interviewers and told us about their experiences in med school. The interviewers seemed to try to put me at ease during the interview, which was nice. I never felt like I was backed against the wall. The only obstacle was my own anxiety." -Posted 02/04/2005 | Report Response
