What impressed you positively?

"The facilities seem very nice. I like the pass/no pass system and that exams are on Fridays so you do not have to study over weekends. I like that they try to give students as much leeway as possible to explore their interests and make mistakes while in class without negatively impacting their grades too significantly."

What are your general comments?

"I can't speak for many other schools, but OHSU's style of placing most applicants on a hold until all/most interviews are done can be a very frustrating process. They never gave me a specific date and made it sound as though I could hear back from them at any time until April 30th. I have been waiting for a response for several months now, and while initially I was fine the wait is starting to get to me. I would definitely say if a different school had already accepted me I would have just agreed to go with them months ago and would not wait for OHSU. They need to fix their interview process and communicate better with applicants." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Please communicate better with applicants. I should receive an email when I am placed in the hold pool and also receive another email when I am accepted/placed on the waitlist/rejected. I should not have to be checking the secondary portal every single day just to see whether the tiny little status dot on the secondary portal has changed. I have been checking almost every day for months now and it's been a very frustrating process." Report Response
