"Nothing... I scoured the website and knew people in the school... nothing was a suprise." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A little advice: if you are ABSOLUTELY SURE that OUCOM is where you want to end up... apply for the SURF program. IF you actually get in (it;s VERY competetive), you get an interview as part of your summer research experience. It DOES NOT grant you an automatic seat in the next year's class, but it doesn't hurt your chances either. It is the closest thing that OUCOM has to an early decision program; I knew 8/2/2005 that I was accepted. The interview itself: RELAXING!!! I left that day feeling like I hadn't interviewed for med school, but just had a meet-n-greet with faculty. It was nice. RELAX EVERYONE!!!!" Report Response
