What are your general comments?

"Ohio State definitely gave me a good impression. I liked it more after the visit. The day was well organized. The students were laid back and fairly happy. Ohio State's reputation of being a party school is somewhat true. All the faculty members are excited about teaching and helping students. OSU has a unique ISP curriculum where you do independent study for the first two years. Although I was told several times that it does not influence one's performance on the Boards exams, I am still unsure about how it will suit me. Personally, I would prefer the option of attending lectures. Unfortunately, MD/PhD students don't have this option." Report Response
