"As mentioned in other postings, the Hippocrates website was phonomenal. It offers everything that a medical student would need to be successful. I was also really impressed with the school's module system." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student body. We had the opportunity to speak with many 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year students, and I found that the majority of them were more interested in the social life then the student life. In fact, they used this fact as a recruiting tool by telling us how much partying we could do and still pass." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. I wasn't really suprised by any of the information gained throughout the interview day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I have to characterize my visit as both good and bad. The school offers a wonderful curriculum and outstanding resources from which to learn medicine. I believe that if one so desired, he or she could gain as good an education as anywhere in the country. However, the caliber of the student body was disappointing. As much as I can appreciate socializing, they talked of nothing else. Also, one of the third year students told me that out of her class over 20 people did not pass the USMLE step 1 exam. I do not think this is a reflection on the institution as much as on the students themselves. Again, OU offers everything possible to obtain a wonderful education. The students just don't utilize them. In fact, several of them gloated about the fact that they rarely ever went to class. The tour was also run by the students, and was therefore completely unorganized. They were actually debating about where they should take us next. Then when the interview was over they just said, "Ok, bye." I couldn't believe it. No thanks for coming, no good luck, no nothing. At least give us a closing statement. As an in state resident I have to admit that I was very embarrassed. I think all the out of state applicants felt that they had wasted good money on flying out here. In conclusion, the school is outstanding, but the student body has been found wanting." Report Response
