"it was almost all very case specific stuff...tell me about this experience, this class, this grade, etc. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"All pretty basic stuff again, but one interviewer did try to falsely call me out...accusing me of secretly harboring desires to really be an MD instead or something like that...and that really offended me, got me a bit riled up, and then put me on the defensive for the rest of the session. Not cool. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I live in the middle of nowhere, I went to undergrad in the middle of nowhere...but let me tell you, OUCOM and Athens REALLY is absolutely in the middle of nowhere. The area is extremely rural and poor...far worse than I was expecting." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"CORE, and just how laid back the interviews really were. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The entire morning was spent chock full of information sessions and tours, which honestly wore me out and had me itching to go home even before the interviews hit. But then again, I spent the entire week sick as a dog, and was most ill the day of the interview (go figure), so it was a feat just to not pass out during the day. The interviews themselves were about as laid back as you can get, very very conversational....3 half hour sessions. JUST MAKE SURE YOU COME PREPARED WITH PLENTY OF QUESTIONS TO ASK IN RETURN.
