"There are two curriculums: the integrated and independent curriculum. They go in depth about the two curriculums before you interview. I wrote down questions I wanted to ask my interviewers during the introduction to OSU, which lasted 2 hours." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Expect an ethical question (I was asked about stem-cell research). Some applicants were only questioned about the weakest parts of their application. Don't be intimidated, and make sure it does not affect your second interview (i.e., you are interviewed by a faculty and student). The student wants to know if you would make a cool classmate."
