What impressed you positively?

"The students were very laid back - like VERY laid back. More so than in undergrad. They seemed to have a very active social life and stated that the partying in med school was even better than in undergrad. However they do study very hard during test block. The students showed us some of their hilarious party pics and told us some interesting stories. Every thursday night they have a program in which the med school takes over a hole-in-the-wall bar. One guy started pouring beers all over the floor at his own party. Even some of the professors get in on the party action. Some could look at all the partying as a lack of maturity on the part of the students but I found it refreshing to see students that can have a good time and speak openly about it. Their facilites are absolutely huge (but the college doesn't try to sell them). Millions of dollars of renovation completed last year. It was kind of admirable that the school did not try to put a hard sell on you. Even when the med students showed the traditional "come to our school" video they admitted it was cheesy."

What impressed you negatively?

"The day was so disorganized it was unbelievable. They just threw us all in a room and had random people come in and talk to us. Mostly the med students would come in and talk to us at random. It wasn't bad, just a very unorthodox approach. The school is great - they do big research, and have big resources but they deffinately don't try to sell the school at ALL. I guess this is because state students will come here regardless since it is the only school in the state. The tour was lead by an M IV who didn't want to go out in the cold and show us around. Its all the same - it seems tours don't really help students memorize the lay of the land anyhow. It is more for impressing students with the facilities. The administration did not get involved with anything dealing with the interview. The Dean did not talk to us and apparently the students don't see any need to go and talk to him - which is a departure from other med schools ive seen. If I go to OU the heavy partying will definately destroy my liver." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the day was very loosely strutcuted. I could have been one hour late and still have been fine." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers paid me numerous compliments and said several times that I had good answers. They seemed like genuinely nice people. My interview was notably shorter than other interviews, which was strange. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing - but the time I was in there was all as comfortable as can be for an interview. Apparently first round students are the "golden boys" who the school wants to take - so they won't grill you. They are only looking for character flaws." Report Response
