How many people interviewed you?

2

What was the style of the interview?

In a group

What type of interview was it?

Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell us about yourself. (I actually included in this a description of my hobbies, and I preemptively described why I wanted to practice medicine. I think this actually helped, because I wasn't asked ''why medicine'' or ''why osteopathic'', I think because I brought it up on my own terms instead of theirs.)" -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"What characteristics should a physician possess? (Though closed file, this was very easy because it was exactly how I wrote my PS, so I related a lot of similar information.)" -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Do you see yourself as focusing on rural medicine or will you keep your options open? (After I mentioned my extensive rural medicine experiences.)" -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"No question sticks above the rest, as they were all pretty general. The interviewers did have preset questions, but their questions really flowed with what information you provided to them (it was closed file)." -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Though not difficult, the most hypothetical they got was ''What must you do as a physician if a patient is unwilling to go along with your course of action?'' That's the most hypothetical they got." -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read about OSU on the Website, and also knew a bunch of students through their rotations." -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything. I really did not have a preconceived notion of what a medical school should be like - I'll be honost, I hadn't toured a school of medicine up to this point. It is a very compact school with a teaching hospital very close. The enthusiasm and friendliness of the students is unrivaled. I also loved the small group during the day. There were a total of 8 people the entire day, which made for a lot friendlier and social environment. Finally, the catered lunch was amazing. If anything, go for the lunch." -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not really negative, but you do sit around a bit at the beginning of the day, if you're a later interview (which can be helpful for any last minute preparation). " -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a great day, and very social and small group oriented - I loved it. I highly recommend reading up on their website about Rural medicine in Oklahoma, because the school (modestly) prides itself on its rural outreach programs - to be able to converse with them about the issue of rural healthcare and how OSU is combating it is a great interview topic (if you chose to bring it up)." -Posted 10/24/2007 | Report Response
