What was the most interesting question?

"Not anything too crazy. They seemed to just want to get to know me. They did ask me what my favorite book(s) is." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"They asked me to describe an ethical situation in medicine (of my choice), and to talk about the parameters. I talked about patients who are on life-support, but I'm sure that abortion, stem cell research, genetic engineering, etc. would all be acceptable." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, previous interview experience" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How much the school has to offer in terms of technology, while maintaining that students build strong clinical skills." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. The size of the class could be problematic with 220 (how much personal attention could you really get), but otherwise nothing was really terrible about it. There is a ton of construction but that is a good thing (new hospitals/research centers being built)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I felt laid-back and well prepared...nothing really threw me for a loop. Some students had a hard time finding parking so I suggest you call and get better directions than those given. I also had two interviewers at the same time, something that rarely happens at OSU. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They day was very informative and also laid back. I would recommend being prepared and confident, and then not sweating. Just be prepared to answer questions that you would usually encounter at an interview. I had two very nice, enthusiastic, outgoing interviewers." Report Response
