So I didn't prepare at all for the interview, becuase I thought that there was no way I'd be coming here. When I left the interview, I had completely changed my mind. This is a fabulous school. You won't find a more student-friendly school out there. Everything from parking to the state of the art gym that is free to students make the quality of life here great.

"Their students ran a coffee-get-together the evening before the interview. They gave us a quick tour and answered our questions. It was very informal and completely optional and was a lot of fun.

"the friendliness of EVERYONE, coming from a big city, it was quite wierd" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone (faculty, student tour guides) were very enthusiastic about the school and seemed to enjoy being there. The school also has an impressive residency match rate and the students have high board scores." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the whole experience. I felt that everyone was very kind and helpful, and really went out of their way to make us feel like we belonged there. The facilities are pretty decent, as well as the before-stated 98% pass rate and 218 average score on step one of the boards." More from this Member | Report Response

"While there are better-known programs in the state (Cincinnati and Ohio State U), never did I feel like MUO was trying to keep up with "big brother." Reps simply laid out the strengths of the program, including high board scores and placement into competitive residency spots." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty much everything. The facilities are beautiful, the students are friendly and seem quite happy in general, the faculty and staff are supportive of the students and the match list is good too. I also liked the integrated, non-traditional curriculum. The biggest positive to me was that they seem to take a genuine interest in you as a person and how you would be as a practicing physician, which was very refreshing to me versus selecting candidates who are the best academically that they can get to come there. Oh, and the in-state tuition after one year is a big bonus. Additionally, the cost of living is quite cheap (like half or so for housing costs) compared to coastal California or the Northeast Corridor." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are extremely motivated and driven-have exceptional board scores (avg. 214, national avg. 180) and 99% residency match last year. MUO students are very competitive in residency matches at top programs." More from this Member | Report Response

"The residency placements of the graduated students. Some of the best programs around. MUO isn't the most prestigous name but the avg USMLE step 1 is 218; 98% pass." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly and happy everyone seemed, and how nice the facilities were." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers were very courteous and inquisitive about their potential students. The students were ultra enthusiastic about being there, even guys i knew from undergrad who were less than enthusiastic about school in general were relatively positive about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitudes os the Students" More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty seem very inviting and accessible. The students all seemed to love the place and seemed happy to be there. The cool little walkways between the buildings (both above and underground) were nice so you don't have to go outside." More from this Member | Report Response

"Statistics was about it. The buildings are all very nice too. " More from this Member | Report Response

"98% passage rate on Step 1 of the board exam. Brand new facility for taking Board exam and mock clinical sessions. Integrated curriculum. Flexibility of rotation scheduling. Financial Aid presentation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have to say the ambiance of the school. Everything was crystal clean, the library was beautiful and I believe it is a public instituion" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, the integrated curriculum, the workout facilities, and the fact everyone seemed very happy to be there." More from this Member | Report Response

"student and faculty interaction, integrated classes, cooperation among students, usmle testing center" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school and the faculty. Everyone was very friendly and it seemed like the students liked it there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is really nice. Its a USMLE testing site (both for clinical skills and computer testing). Students really like it there, and are treated really well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, enthusiastic students, over-all good feeling" More from this Member | Report Response

"The positive attitudes and closeness of the students and faculty. The dedication of everyone to learning and teaching medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Burns was SO nice! It's an MD school which is neat (I had only had DO interview beforehand). The USMLE test center...The campus is not super cute but lots of trees...Everything is connected with a glass tunnel which is cool in the winter...Workout facilities were all right...You get to use the on-campus Hilton's indoor pool and hot tub. VERY CHEAP for OH residents, and out of staters qualify after 1st year (but that first year will suck!) Lecture halls were fine, comfy chairs it looked like. Match list looks great, avg USMLE is 217 which is a solid score." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoy the small school/community atmosphere. It is a professional school with about 2,000 students total. Med students were excited to be there and very helpful" More from this Member | Report Response

"Beautiful facilities- the clinical training site is amazing, and the lecture halls are super nice too. Also the residency match lists are quite impressive. Campus was lovely and people looked happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilities and the attitudes of the students... everyone really seems to enjoy being there" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilites are great and they have only 1 of 8 USMLE testing sites on campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has good facilities and a dedicated hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are extremely new and high-tech. They have cameras that record the performance of medical students in mock patient interviews/examinations so med students can have constructive criticism about their bedside manner. The faculty and students were very friendly and seemed happy to be there. The school has its own USMLE test center (there are only eight in the nation). Also, the school promotes a non-cutthroat atmosphere whereby students can succeed together rather than worrying about grades too much." More from this Member | Report Response

"The focus on the students impressed me greatly. They really make it apparent that the school is there just for the medical students. There is no undergrad attached to divert any resources away from the med students. Facilities are pretty sweet, clean, and new. All buildings are connected. 4 students to one cadaver. Pretty nice curriculum, more focused on problem based learning. 40% of lectures had been cut down to fit in more PBL. I was pleasently suprised by this school and hope to be accepted. Cross your fingers :) " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has it's own USMLE Step 1 testing center. One of only a few in the nation, so that's a definite plus for MCO students." More from this Member | Report Response

" Has all qualities of a much more highly rated school with a smaller community feel Med students came up to me during a down time to talk- described their interesting research" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed that my first interviewer knew everything that was in my file. He had thoroughly read everything about me. The faculty and students are extremely nice. The faculty are extremely dedicated to teaching students. The students are willing to collaborate and help each other which makes for a non competitive atmosphere and it fosters maximal learning because of the cooperation. Also there is no curve in the grades, for example honors is not just reserved for the top 15% of the class. The campus facilities are awesome. As an out of state applicant (east coast), I was very impressed with everything I saw and will definitely be attending since I was accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students are really really nice; the school has a very friendly, non-competitive atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"the faculty were great, seemed to really care about the success of the students. my interviewers were awesome, the school is really clean and nice, the facilities are nice, it has a USMLE testing center in it so you can practice and get 1st dibs. " More from this Member | Report Response

"MCO seems like it would be a pleasant place to be a medical student. The school sits on a tranquil campus full of trees and small streams. In addition the facilities are clean and modern. Free parking is another nice bonus. " More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities, elle est belle (beautiful), faculty down to earth, dean: she's great" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the facilities. Very clean and nice, and the students were amazingly friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"the campus is pretty nice with the tunnels so you don't have to walk outside. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything! The Medical College of Ohio is truly student centered. The school invests in the students from every aspect and takes the time to guide them throughout their educational experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything! An excellent school, and an excellent choice! I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at MCO. The interview environment was very laid-back and stress-free. The school is very nice, campus is beautiful, and the facilities are outstanding. Another plus is that MCO contains 1 of only 7 or 8 USMLE testing centers in the nation. You don't have to go anywhere else to complete your boards (except the clinical skills portion)." More from this Member | Report Response

"For a smaller school, nice facilities. Never have to walk outside if bad weather. Students, Faculty extremely nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"non-competetive atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is very beautiful especially in the fall months when trees are changing colors. Also the openness of the deans on exactly how the admissions process worked at their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area was really pretty, and all the buildings were connected. School was small enough for all the faculty and students to know one another. It was also pretty diverse in student population." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the small feel of the school and the Toledo tour. The day was well organized and the city tour was unique in my six interviews I've attended. Nice facilities and has the "students come first" feel I've haven't experienced at other MD schools. The most beautiful campus I've visited." More from this Member | Report Response

"the closeness of the faculty and students. the school really is a big family! everyone is willing to help each other out " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the fact that there was a lot of patient-student interaction involved. They have a shadowing program so that you can further reinforce what you learned in class. Also the profs are very friendly and really want to help you learn as best as possible." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is very focused on the students, and Toledo is not as horrible as I thought it would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is so friendly. Everyone I encountered, from the Dr Myers (the asst. dean) to staff, was extremely friendly and helpful. The whole campus is modern with very nice lecture halls, a student lounge, computers everywhere for student use, nice labs, free parking, a great fitness center, and a new testing center. The new testing center is amazing. It is one of eight in the country housed at a medical school that meets the requirements for the USMLE. The tour of Toledo was helpful, especially for those who have never been there. Toledo is a large city (750,000 in metro area) without a great deal of traffic problems. The actual campus is in a residential area in South Toledo, not the downtown area. This is a huge positive to most other schools I've seen. There is grass (or snow) and trees everywhere with parks nearby. It should make the medical school experience more enjoyable and lower stress. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the admissions staff were very friendly, organized and realistic. they said that if we didn't feel happy or comfortable there that we should choose a place that fit us better. they also put us in a bus and drove us around toledo telling us all about the area" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low stress interview; Deans Myers and Burns are awsome and SO nice; the clinical experience that students have a chance to practice even in the first 2 years (especially in the free clinic that MCO offers)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers were laid back. One of the interviewers was a PhD and was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. Faculty was very enthusiastic about the teaching standards at MCO." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was really impressed by the school. Esp. the emphasis on their student. I liked the block curriculum, the grading system, the continuous improvement on their usmle scores, extra usmle classes given by the school, the cheap cost of living." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was really nice. It was a non threating environment. Dr. Myers is super nice and the staff is there to make you feel stress free. Oh and the parking is free all year long" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus was very nice. The people were friendly. Their are tunnels connecting all the buildings, so you don't have to walk outside in the cold." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very friendly staff. They really let us know in the beginning that they were happy we were there and what the admission process was about. The tour of Toledo was nice and the med students who gave us a tour of the campus gave us great insight into the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"students/faculty seemed friendly and happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Toledo Tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is awesome, the students were great, the facilities were great, the faculty members I met were outstanding also. Plus the interview day was extremely organized and even included a tour of the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"The second interviewer was very nice and seemed very enthusiastic about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendly, open and candid students and faculty. The building and facilities. (Designed by the same architect as WTC) Glass hallways and tunnels connecting each building. (No need to step out in the cold) Being able to establish Ohio residency after 1 year." More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendliness of students, admissions people, interviewers. Nice workout facilities. Nice campus. Free parking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is so friendly! They tell you everything about what they do during the selection process so you're not left in the dark. There are tons of parking spaces and it was free!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very friendly atmosphere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The truly integrated curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really impressed with the faculty and stafff, and extremely impressed with the gym - which by the way has been a great stress reliever this year!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great sense of community, peaceful campus, great people. They also assign four people to a cadaver, nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"candid students and staff, closeness of student body " More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student ambassadors were not excited to be there and a few of the interviewers were incredibly rude." More from this Member | Report Response

"Other than the new building for the simulation center, the campus is rather dreary" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students said that a few of the professors are "terrible."" More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was very rude. He arrived 20 minutes late, took/made 3 phone calls during my already abbreviated interview, and spent most of the time reading my file (which he hadn't read ahead of time). He only barked out 1 line questions every few minutes, then went back to reading my file. My interview ended 10 minutes early. I could tell throughout he was just asking questions from their evaluation sheet. "are you compassionate?" "did you grow up poor?" "are you humble?" If you don't have the time to actually interview somebody, don't sign up for it. Also, although med students gave us a tour, there weren't enough of them to take us to our interviews, and most of them were in offices that aren't accessible from main hallways (behind receptionists and locked doors) ,so we were made to explore and find them on our own." More from this Member | Report Response

"The city of Toledo. Even the current students said that this was the major negative of the school-- its location." More from this Member | Report Response

"The library is really poor quality, in my opinion, and other student facilities are lacking. The Toledo area is also complete garbage. Nothing to do. Plus, my tour guide seemed to be one of those people who you just hate because they are so stubborn and self-righteous. Oh well." More from this Member | Report Response

"lectures being podcasted, not streamed" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location, location, location. Also, it seemed like the school itself was cramped as they had just opened up a pharm school and parking had become an issue" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that I had an hour to waste ater the tour and before my 2nd interview because they hadnt scheduled anything for me to do" More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather, but Im from Michigan so im use to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Toledo winters are very cold. Fair amount of construction the day I went. The library is not 24/7" More from this Member | Report Response

"lots of construction, having to go find the interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"Med campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere; the paper secondaries are a pain" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is a bit out there. However, being from a relatively rural area, I was used to it. Also, the YMCA on campus is not that "state of the art."" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers was 45 min late to our interview, and then spent 5 minutes with me, because they had to buy something at the store before it closed. It was very disappointing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour of the medical center, and parts of the school are a little outdated. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That one bad interviewer. And the abysmal nature of non-academic life in the town." More from this Member | Report Response

"its in a very rural area. not really my cup of tea, but if you transported the school anywhere more attractive to live the school would be awesome." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"My 2nd interviewer (who hadn't even reviewed my file like he was supposed to to ahead of time) was running in out of my interview to go to the OR and my interview that was supposed to last 20-45 minutes lasted almost 2 hours!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like that the whole school is pretty much one buidling-connected by tunnels. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I feel that the day went very smoothly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the city is kinda sketchy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Toledo area in general. Facilities were a bit antiquated in design (very 70's feel). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Curriculum is a bit lecture heavy. Competitive grading scale during M1, M2 of Honors, High Pass, Pass, Fail, which to me is really no different from ABC grades." More from this Member | Report Response

"some buildings could use some renovations...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy is in a basment, windowless, depressing room. The buildings seem like they were built in the 70's and never updated." More from this Member | Report Response

"both interviewers were 20 min late and there were constant interruptions. also, MCO doesn't really have a college town or a real campus, it's kind of just a big medical complex. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really, Toledo is not the most exciting location" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish the student facilies were a little bigger. (gym, library, meeting places, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"...everything: awful location, students didnt seem happy, my interviewers were complete a-holes, they have no commitment to technology, ugly buildings, etc" More from this Member | Report Response

"no MD/MBA program (but a willingness to conceive one)." More from this Member | Report Response

"the areas outside of campus were a bit shady." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the facilities look a bit out dated" More from this Member | Report Response

"Toledo is actually pretty nice overall, but it was cloudy and gloomy that day, the trees were bare, and the grass was brown. It's still very much winter in that area in late March. I could see it being depressing if you lived through 5-6 months of that. The biggest negative thing was that the morning presentation by one of the faculty members reeked of waitlist (since it's so late in the interview season). This is more of an FYI than a negative, but the school (and area) is pretty conservative in general (probably why my plug for national health insurance didn't go over so well) and I wouldn't bring up touchy issues like abortion or euthanasia unless specifically asked. Oh, and does anyone else find it strange that 90% of the cars here are American made? My rental car was Japanese (randomly), and I seemed to be getting some dirty looks for driving it around the Motown area." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I kind of enjoyed learning this first hand at the school from the students and faculty, but MUO is very focused on the students and training them to be a good doctor who can relate to their future patients, and use the knowledge they've gained to help them. It's a school for people who want to be clinicians, not researchers. And that's okay. In fact, that's awesome in my opinion." More from this Member | Report Response

"Decent school with very down to earth people. The staff has recently had a lot of turnover. Coupled with an increase in applications, I can very reasonably see how there might be confusion within the admission's office.

More from this Member | Report Response

"beautiful campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Stay at the on-campus hotel. It's a very short walk to the medical center, or, you can take their free shuttle to the exact interview location. I had this one oddball interviewer, who started out nice, conversational, then went into a long string of convoluted ethical and technological imaginings. These ethical questions were VERY random, most not medically related, a couple were quite offensive. To give you an example: "What do you think of people who come to our country illegally, don't bother to learn English, and then use taxpayer dollars when they go to the ER?" or "Don't you think people nowadays are too touchy, and they don't think about how those who have less PC opinions (i.e. homophobes, creationists) feel when they're attacked?" Technological, as in he mentioned a recent finding of, like, nanomachines or something, that go in the blood stream. I responded with interest, surprise, and a bit of skepticism. I asked him about the mechanism, and he said, Oh, you know, at the atomic level. I asked him what medical center/university was doing this. He said, oh, actually, it's just something I think would be cool, that people should look into, that should be coming soon. This went on for over an hour, more towards 1.5 hours. ..."

"Be prepared to answer questions about your activities or your secondary essays. Also be prepared for ethical scenarios.

" More from this Member | Report Response

"the first interview went extremely well - the interviewer was enthusiastic about me and MCO. the whole thing was very conversational and went by very fast. the second interview was somewhat bizarre. the interviewer seemed very tired and apathetic about me and MCO. he mentioned that the clinical experiences at MCO wouldn't be as good as other big institutions like CWRU and OSU. he also referred to MCO students as being "average" and "adequately trained"."

"MCO is a great school and it is unfortunate it isnt rated better simply because their faculty do not receive as much grant funding for their research simply because they are more dedicated to the students than other schools. i guess i have to choose now if it is more important to have faculty who are dedicated to teaching or a highly ranked school. they dont seem to go together from my experiences."

It turned out one of my interviewers was one of them and although i did not have a definite solution to any of problems, I think i managed to do well on those questions.

"1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon. It was actually very tough with lots of healthcare/ethical issues, but at least they were fair questions.

"The day starts in the morning with an introduction and financial aid presentation. There are 8-15 students interviewing on the same day. Some students have their first interview around 11. Everyone meets back for lunch and a tour of the school around 12. Second (or first and second) interviews are then continued around 1. My first interviewer wasn't in his office when I arrived, so I waited about 10 minutes outside. When we sat down, he seemed busy and a bit in a rush. He didn't ask me any questions about healthcare or ethics, didn't focus on my file too much, but instead just talked to me about the school and the area and how much he liked it. After about 15 minutes, he asked if I had questions and we spent the rest of the time discussing those. The interview was over in about 30 minutes. My second interviewer had really gone through my file, and spent time going over every single thing in the file so I could explain anything I needed to. He was super nice and allowed me to explain my lower grades so he could bring it up with the admissions committee. At the end, we talked a lot about the area and his family, until he asked me to leave because he had another appointment. This interview lasted a little over an hour, and made me feel really confident about the whole day. I was a little surprised that I hadn't been asked any healthcare/ethics questions, especially since quite a few of the other students that day were asked some tough questions."

"Overall, the entire experience was great. The campus is very nice, it is in my home town, and it has a good reputation. Also, the upcoming merger with The University of Toledo is a major improvement for the medical school, with many more research grants and other opportunities as a result. If I am accepted, I certainly plan on attending." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview experience was overall very good. Approximately 20 others interviewed on the same day. The day started with an introduction from a faculty member, then the financial aid presentation. Interviews were in all over campus. Others have listed this as a negative, as they hand you a map and point you in the right direction, as opposed to holding your hand and walking you everywhere. We're going to be DOCTORS! If this evokes such strong stress as to judge the school negatively, perhaps you should consider a career change. My first interview was with an FP doctor. It felt like a conversation about medicine with a colleague rather than an interview. We went way over time but had much in common and much to talk about. My second interview was with a staff member who had a scripted list of questions, much more traditional format. Interspersed was the general campus tour, box lunch and Q & A with current students. The students were very positive about their school and encouraging. This was mirrored by all faculty, staff and administration, who genuinely seemed to believe the program to be strong, yet improving at the same time. Campus facilities were modern. The oldest building, the library, is being torn down soon and rebuilt. The fitness facility was above average from what I have seen. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had one faculty interviewer, and one with a current student who was on the admissions committee. Both were pretty laid back, especially the faculty interviewer. The student had a list of prepared questions, but it was still pretty conversational. My faculty interview was pretty informal, and he was quite positive. He seemed to have already made up his mind after about 30 minutes and then asked if there was anything else I wanted to talk about (but I think this was a good sign, because he was quite positive). Basically, I thought the interview day was great and I would love to go to school here." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day began with a presentation from the Associate Dean for Admissions as well as the Financial Aid director. The first interview was at 11:00 a.m., followed by lunch and a group tour of the campus. The next interviews were staggered-mine was at 2:30, so I had to wait for a while. Both interviews were really conversational and laid back. I don't feel the interviewers had an agenda of what they were supposed to ask-only what they really wanted to know about you! In fact, my first interviewer did not ask any questions after we talked about my research-we just talked about MUO and where it is headed in the future. The second interview lasted an hour and a half-I really enjoyed talking with my interviewer-he was really laid back and conversational. The overall impression of the school was positive-and it seems this relatively young program is headed in the right direction for the future." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I was very impressed by the people at MUO. They're extraordinarily dedicated to the success of their med students. Seriously. (Example: there's curriculum time put aside so people can find the specialty that fits their personality the most, and learn more about the "practical" side of medicine). The facilities were good, though nothing amazing. The personality of the place is friendly and it seemed that most of the students were happy there. My interviewers were both very relaxed and made it a very low-stress experience. In fact, I got the impression that they wanted to answer MY questions about the school or Toledo. I had plenty of questions and I felt both my interviewers were able friendly and inviting about answering them. MUO is still a (relatively) new medical school and it's still working out its identity. It's an open environment and seems like a great place to go for med school, though I don't think I'd want to be in Toledo for when I actually have the time to enjoy the place I live (i.e. after med school). The weather is mild for the Midwest." More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviwers I had were very nice and laid-back. The first one tended to ramble a bit, so I probably learned as much about him as he did about me! The second interviewer asked perceptive questions and laughed a lot. She did point out that MUO isn't really a school that turns out researchers-- they turn out clinicians. All the students seemed very open and friendly and satisfied with their school. They emphasized repeatedly the student-centered, non-competitive atmosphere of the school. The facilities were a LOT more impressive than I thought they would be. We were also presented with the impressive statistic that MUO students have a 98% pass rate of step 1 of the boards."

I am not even sure if I can call my second interview an actual interview, the Dr. just told me why MCO is a great school. Not sure if that is good or not but we filled an hour through me asking questions about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview started at around 9 AM. There were about 10 interviewees total, inlcuding myself with a wide rage of backgrounds. The Assistant Dean of Admissions came in and talked to us for about 40 minutes and asnwered all of our questions. He was very honest about the selection process for MCO and talked in detail of how it worked. He also talked of how the chances of getting in once you are interviewed is about 50%, which is good to know. After that we had a brief financial aid presentation, which can be summed up as: fill out FAFSA, apply for scholarships, be prepared for lots of debt. Standard procedure for all schools basically. Also mixed into this was being allowed to sit in on a classroom for awhile. It was a kinda boring because and I had a hard time concentrating on anything as I was too busy looking around at everyone. MCO has us interview 1 on 1 with two different faculty members. Some students had two early interviews while others, including myself had later interviews, basically early afternoon. We also had student guided tours inbetween this. It was a good experience. The guide(second year) was very enthusiastic and extremely helpful. He even let us into the cadaver lab, which was busy with lots of first year students and lots of dead bodies. Good stuff. When it came time to interview, it was up to the student to find the faculty offices using maps we were given. It was a tad confusing but luckily everyone there is extremely helpful and noticed the dazed look in my eyes and guided me correctly. After my first interview, my interviewer had a secretary personally take me to my next interviewer, which was very nice of him, and very much appreciated. My first interviewer hadn't read my file really and just basically asked, why MCO and why medicine. No ethical questions. He also asked about my family. Nothing too hard or stressful. It was very casual. This interview only last 20 min total. The second one was even shorter. He was the guy who asked me the element question. I kind of stumbled over an answer, because I thought it was a strange question, but I thought I have a decent answer because he didn't grill me on it. The rest of the interview was him just looking at my grades. Luckily I have a pretty high GPA so he was impressed with that. But he also mentioned some stuff about his son, who seems to be a genius, because he has gotten into some fantastic schools. It was a little intimidating, but I don't think he was trying to be condescending about it. That interview lasted 15 minutes if even that, but he did say he would highly recommend me and even gave me his personal email address if I had any questions. I was a little nervous at my short interviews, because my student guide mentioned how when he interviewed, he was talking to one of his interviewers for nearly 2 hours! I could barely crack 40 minutes for two interviews total. But they seemed to go well and nothing really went poorly. So who knows. I am posting this January 10, 2005. I interviewed at the school approximately December 9, 2004. I called the school and they said my application would go under review January 25. So I guess I have to wait until then. I stayed at the Hilton Hotel that's located on campus. The good thing about it is that they offer a shuttle to and from the airport, which is about a 15-20 minute drive. In addition, you can get from the hotel to the medical school using their underground tunnels which is very handy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were non-directed. That was good for the first one, where the interviewer spent a lot of time making sure I knew why MCO was a kick-a&& place, but slightly difficult for the second one because there were a lot of awkward silences where I ended up saying "Is there anything else you want to ask me?""

"I loved MCO. Although, I'm from the east coast, I just loved the atmosphere, the faculty and the students. The Faculty really care about the students.

If you want a nurturing environment, filled with friendly people and faculty who care then MCO is for you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"What an awsome and low-stress experience! MCO really has its act together with an innovative curriculum, offering out-of-state students residency after a year, letting students volunteer in their free clinic, and having a USMLE testing site on campus. We each had 2 interviews which we had to get to ourselves. Both of mine were pretty low stress and conversational--I was surprised at how much the 2 physicians I spoke with were willing to share THEIR stories and experiences, which was cool. Overall, if you're into a non-competitive environment and close-knit atmosphere, this is the place to be. Oh, and Toledo isn't THAT bad--everyone here seems to bash it but theres some cool restaurants, old neighborhoods, and what looks like an awsome art museum." More from this Member | Report Response

We had to walk to them ourselves, so it was a little challenging finding the offices. It was a pretty long day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, this is a great school with a strong curriculum. They house 1 of 8 USMLE testing sites in the country which means you are familiar with the facilities and feel more comfortable during the exam. My second interview was a challenge. I was basically put into the philosophical grinder and, at some points, felt a little insulted by some of the comments made. However, I found this session more engaging than intimidating and that is what made my interviewer impressed overall. My first interview was more straightforward - some healthcare policy issues and a general desire to get to know me." More from this Member | Report Response

"MCO seems like a great school with a lot of personality. part of that personality is that everyone at MCO seems really self-conscious of the fact that toledo is not a great city. the school does not have all that great of a reputation right now but seems like it is really pulling its act together and in the process of becoming a really great school (new director, new programs)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great! It probably was the most difficult interview I've ever had. A lot of hypothetical questions were asked, as well as healthcare policy questions.

MCO is an awesome school, the curriculum, students, profs, administrative people were all fantastic. " More from this Member | Report Response

The interview day is designed to be low stress and a chance for interaction. All the med students will tell you to relax for the interviews and that they are generally conversational. However, beware and don't be too relaxed so that you're caught off guard by the typical med school questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"When I first applied to MCO and got the interview, I didn't think that it would be a place that I would really like to go. I did some research about Toledo, but nothing really impressed me that much before I went to the interview. But after taking the tour, and assessing the atmosphere in the small city, I really liked it. I'm from a relatively big city (not as big as NY or Chicago) and Toledo was much smaller, but it is so much less stressful to get around and living is very inexpensive. After thinking about it, what is most important to me for medical school is not the city in which the medical school is located, but the facilities, the curriculum, the residency matches, the people, and the stress level (I don't want to be stressed out just getting to class or an exam). I know that I wouldn't have to worry too much about road rage and parking (which will take a lot off of my mind). The campus is beautiful and the facilities are pretty new and they're gorgeous. The entire campus is connected, so I wouldn't worry about weather issues, and there are lots of living options near and around the school. The interviews were really laid-back and friendly. The first one was a full hour - we had a great conversation about random things like traffic logisitics, even though he did run down a list of questions he planned for me :) and the second interview was very short (~20 min) but he was really nice and told me a story about his neighbor. My advice: Just be yourself - don't try to act like you're something you're not, because people do see through it, and most likely - they'll like you for what you truly are. Also, don't be afraid of saying what you believe... They'll respect you as a collegue when you can talk to them like one." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt that I had the most rude interviewer I have ever dealt with in my life (including job interviewers and elsewhere). This person had the nerve to say to my face that all my post secondary experiences (which include volunteer work at several facilities, over three years of research work, and several publications) are nothing compared to shadowing a "real" physician at a clinic. I ended up arguing with this person for the last half hour of the interview due to his comments." More from this Member | Report Response

"Like I said above, i was really surprised by the difficulty of the interviews. I think it was just bad luck that I got two "hard" interviewers. My first interviewer asked me a ton of healthcare questions which I think I answered really well and we ended up talking a whole hour about stuff like that. He ended up walking me to my next interview which was nice. The second interviewer was even tougher, he pretty much looked at my file and started giving me questions relating to my character and others about healthcare and specific questions about things in my file. Overall, I was really surprised about how hard the interviewers were." More from this Member | Report Response

"You have two interviews, and at least one of the interviewers is on the admissions committee.

"MCO plesently surprised me in a number of ways. From the rumors that I had heard going in I was expecting a very small complex with a high propensity for family medicine. What I ended up seeing was a very advance medical center with a diverse population of students who were being trained on the same level as any other Medical School. Toledo isn't nessesarly the city of my dreams, but I guess while you are in medical school you don't really have that much time for exploring anyways. The school though is fiercly loyal to it's students and very open to thier questions and sugestions. It is very impressive and a worthwhile choice. The interview as a matter of fact was rather rigorous. I was interviewd by one clinical and one non-clinical faculty member for an hour each. They asked some very hard questions, but for the most part where fair. The rest of the time there included a talk from the admissions staff, a tour and a lot of time with students. In fact there was nearly one medical student for each interviewee. Overall, MCO is definitly a good school that is very interested in your education, not just their reputation."
