"Who has been the most influential person in your life and why?" Report Response

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

"If you were accepted here as well as other Ohio schools, would you choose DO over MD, and why? Would be comfortable working in rural areas instead of larger cities or suburbs?" Report Response

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

"Tell me about your research and why you decided to pursue a medical degree and not a PhD?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Where do you get your hair done? (The interviewer and I are from the same area of Ohio, which is really weird since it is in the middle of nowhere and most people never leave it. This interview was the last of the day and was really more of a get-to-know-you type of thing. I think she just wanted to see if I had any kind of a personality.)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What would you do if you were not accepted to med school? (I really never thought about this to be honest and just made something up about studying some more and maybe taking the MCAT again and of course apply again the following year)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"spoke with friends and family who have gone there, looked over the website (specifically over the CPC and PCC programs), read some feedback " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the area is beautiful! I have lived in a city for over 3 years now, but coming from a small town I really miss the rural areas; also, the faculty and staff truly care about you, and that was extremely evident upon first meeting them" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"since this was my first official interview, I don't have much to compare...I was a little concerned about the parking situation since the university does not issue a parking pass for students living within a mile of the school even though most of the apartment buildings are up HUGE hills. I'm not lazy, but I don't necessarily want to walk to and from class in the snow!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The DO internship that a few states require to practice medicine if you complete an allopathic residency. This won't deter me from becoming an osteopathic physician, but it is just another hurdle you may have to jump through to please some MDs who still think that a DO degree may not quite measure up to an MD degree..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very laid back atmosphere. The interviews were more like discussions. I was only asked specific questions in one of my interviews, and that was not bad at all." Report Response
