What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seemed very nice including the physicians who I interviewed with. The CORE NETWORK! This is great for a DO school to have such strong 3rd and 4th year ties. The OU campus is gorgeous. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The medical school buildings seem a bit dated. The school was constructed (or rather two old OU buildings renovated) in '75 and it seems very '75ish in some ways. In other ways its very nice...Like the labs look great, library is decent. It's long and hard to get into Athens (US-33 is very slow!) but the campus on the whole is very beautiful.

What are your general comments?

"It was very relaxed, friendly and low stress. We started the morning with an overview, then some financial aid stuff, a tour of the facilities and a van tour of Athens and the campus. Afterwards was lunch with students which they had set up for us instead of giving us a meal voucher for a food place like other schools had. The students all seemed super friendly and relaxed; they seemed to go out a ton more than others I had talked to. After lunch we all had assigned 3 separate one half hour interviews one on one. They were all very conversational; only in one did I get asked many questions. THey have your file right in front of them so a lot comes from them looking it over. If there are obvious things they might get asked about; almost all my interviewers commented on my high MCAT but one poor grade in a class. The campus is gorgeous, Southern Ohio is too but it is a very small town. Lots of community service opportunities for students and a lot of patient exposure early on. Overall a great day and I would be very happy here. " Report Response
