What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was really nice, and they told us that everyone knows everyone. For example, you can leave an IOU at the bookstore and pay when your loan money comes in. There's no limit on the numbers of electives that you can do in any one area (most schools limit it to two), and you can do all your rotations in Tulsa. The food was really good, too. Instead of eating in their cafeteria, they brought in a catered meal. Oh yeah, PBL is integrated into the second year curriculum." -Posted 11/18/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Sort of a duh thing but there's not a lot of diversity in the student body. Everyone's from Oklahoma (that's the duh one since it's a state school). I got the impression that the vast majority of their students are recent grads from OU or OSU, so I could see it being sort of insular. " -Posted 11/18/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. " -Posted 11/18/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started around 8:30 with a meeting with the admissions staff. We introduced ourselves and were able to ask one question. Then we had interviews. I was in the last session, so there was some dead time. We did get a presentation on online technology at the school, which was not the most interesting, but the presenter seemed very nice. After the interviews, we went to this catered lunch. Then we had a tour lead by two current students. After that, we had a financial aid, pre-clinical and clinical curriculum presentation.
