What impressed you positively?

"students. down to earth, laid back. seemed to enjoy each other. they go out, spend time together, etc. the mod system is like nothing i have seen at other schools. they put you in groups of 15 to 20 students at the start of school and you hang out with these people thru your first two years. it seemed that if you wanted to learn some good medicine, you could do it at ou. if you wanted to just coast thru and barely pass w/o working too hard, you could do that at ou too. school has some fancy scmancy high tech curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the dean. i guess it is good that the students said he didnt interact with them much. seemed to be much animosity between students and administrators. apparently there was a big shake up in the dean's office a few years back and nothing has really been the same since. they apparently are not as "student friendly" as they used to be. bygones. not too terribly diverse. all the first years that talked with us seemed to be cut from the same mold. maybe that is why students seem to get along well." Report Response
