What impressed you negatively?

"The medical school was small, lots of OU students didn't even know it was there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The directions on the OU website were kind of confusing so I used mapquest which had me drive a longer distance than I should have." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a good experience. I was accepted and will probably attend although I do have some other interviews that I am going to. The interviewers were easy to talk to and it didn't feel like I was being interogated like I had feared. Mostly they asked about my research and clinical experience and my motivation to become a doctor since it was a career change from being a librarian. The day started off with a financial aid presentation, tour, and lunch then interviews. I wish they had the interviews first because I was too stressed to enjoy the food that much." Report Response
