"I was asked what one of my biggest passions was, and I talked about music, but then my interviewer kept asking me about more and more passions. So be prepared to talk about everything you enjoy doing (my range of passions was from music to socializing to reading to baking - so don't hold back, no matter how weird the passion is)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What makes you a better candidate for OUCOM than the other 11 students who are here interviewing today?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over the OUCOM webpage, read my AACOMAS, my OUCOM secondary application, and all of the postings on studentdoctor.net" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students there were amazing. They knew I was interviewing because I had my dress suit on, so they would come up and wish me luck and ask me if I had any questions for them. I also like the fact that the classes at OUCOM are pass/fail so there is less competition amongst the students. Everyone works together to help get you through medical school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Absolutely nothing, it was such a great experience." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known more about the difference between CPC and PCC" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience was absolutely wonderful. I strongly suggest just taking in all the information they give you and enjoy the day. The interviews are very laid back. They tell you that you have made it over the biggest hurdle by getting an interview. They say they know that each of you will make a wonderful student so the point of the interviews is to get to know you and see if you will fit in with the OUCOM community, not to drill you over the Krebs Cycle - so be yourself and relax."
