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

"Who is your favorite comic book character?" Report Response

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

"If accepted to OUCOM, what are your chances of matriculation after seeing our facilities and what we have to offer to you as a medical student?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I actually wasn't asked a whole lot of the typical questions you would expect from an inteview of this magnitude. The interviews were very conversational in that the interviewers wanted to get to know what type of person you are rather than your accomplishments; besides, they already have your file, so they know what you've done." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None of the questions were too difficult to answer; however, during my third inteview, I had to read a short essay and then discuss it with my interviewer. That threw me off a little since my two previous interview sessions were strictly conversational and mostly about my life and personal experiences outside of school." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This was my first (and incidentally my only) medical school interview, so I wasn't really sure how to prepare. I learned alot about the school and osteopathic medicine in general, but in the end I really didn't talk about anything like that. The most important thing to remember about inteviewing at OU is to remain relaxed and be yourself; they're not looking for robots." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything; OU has great up-to-date facilities and a beautiful campus, and Athens is a great little town for people like me who grew up in a small village in Ohio." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only thing that made a less than positive impression on me is the housing situation in Athens. Living with pets is difficult to do, but luckily the surrounding areas are usually willing to accomodate." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wished I had found this website and read what other people have written about their experiences during their visit to OUCOM." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall very impressive; I learned that I was accepted 3 days later and I will be starting at OUCOM this fall." Report Response
