What impressed you negatively?

"As I asked my questions the interviewers were polite but gaurded...I just asked what is more important to OU-COM in selection, stats or the person...I was acccepted but they pretty much danced around landing on the answer, stats leading to competativeness with MD schools... Also, there was too much of an approach and emphasis on "being trainned as an MD, however being a licensed Osteopathic school" Yea they have Gevis, but they did not stress OMM beyond the manditory need to maintain accredidation....pretty sad" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Less emphasis on OMM after first two years... Desire of school to be "competative" with MD schools...(a admissions rep indicated "Ya' know it bothers me that we loss good candidates to OSU and Wright State, there really isn't much of a difference between DO and MD") ...interview was conversational and laid back, just want to get to know you... ...have a comic book hero... ...There appears to be only 4 ways into and out from Athens, OH by car, nearest International Airport is 2 hrs away and there is a small local air field for university use..."
