What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed, for the most part, with their facilities as well as with the spirit of comraderie that seems to come from the school. Athens seems like a very nice little town. Because it is largely an undergraduate institution there are many really great perks involved with going to school there. There is a very large impressive recreation center." Report Response

"The only thing that I didn't like was the anatomy lab. It seemed to be dungeon-like, but it wasn't that big of a turn-off." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The grading at OU is pass-fail." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are three half-hour one-on-one interviews that are very conversational in nature. I would not have been as tense had I known that it was going to be like it was. The interviewers are more concerned with how you will fit in personality wise at the school, and if you are committed to osteopathic medicine. I heard nothing but positive comments from the other interviewees as well." Report Response
