What are your general comments?

"The people at OSU-COM were great. Everyone I had contact with was super-friendly, very laid-back, and made me feel very welcome. The admissions staff was very forthcoming about the admissions process (telling us there are only a handful of spots left in the class) and gave us all the information we could have asked for regarding the school. The students were all very friendly and informative. They all seemed like they were really happy. The school has a great rep and has placed grads into top residencies. The area right around the school is crappy, but Tulsa is a good-sized city with plenty of nice areas and lots to do. As far as osteopathic schools go, there are probably not any located in better cities. The only thing I was not impressed with is the facilities. The other schools I have interviewed at (all allopathic) were all connected to multiple large teaching hospitals and clinics and had other professional schools (dental, nursing, etc..) on the same campus. That kind of setup just feels more like med-school to me. OSU-COM is in a single building that sits alone and almost seems like a highschool. There was only 8 of us interviewing and we met in a conference room initially and received an overview of the process. We then started interviewing 2 at a time. Those not interviewing were free to roam about and talk with current students. We had a short presentation of the school's online databases and library resources. We then a catered lunch (which was great) with 2 student guides. We then got an official tour of the building and wrapped up with a curriculum and financial aid presentation." -Posted 04/09/2008 | Report Response
