"How would you contribute to the medical school class/your fellow students' experience? (Had I only thought about it at the time, I would have told them that I was old enough to be able to remember life pre-HMOs! :) )" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"How do we know that this (medicine) is your last stop? (I am a non-traditional student applying to medical school after working in both Publishing and Information Technology - so a question to be expected )." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"How do we know that this is your last stop? (Yes, it was expected but still difficult. I am certain of my path, but there are no guarantees in life and convincing someone else of your convictions always depends on how well you connect)." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site, OU's site, AMCAS site, reading "Severed Trust", "White Coat" and "Better than Well", looking over recent Daily Oklahomans, JAMAs, New England Journal of Medicine and AMA bulletins" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Almost everything - The people are fantastic, very communicative and well-organized. They have really taken care of many of the problems that were reported on SDN last year with the organization and scheduling of the day. I was also impressed with the community physicians interviewing and contributing their time to the school, always a good sign. Hippocratis was amazing and its presenter Rob Friedman(?) incredibly positive and welcoming to the student groups. TAs a veteran of IDL classes, I was very impressed -- he school and he have a lot to be proud of in their online curriculum and tools. The simulation tools ("Harvey", "Mr. Sims" ) were also an eye-opener. I was also positively impressed by their module structure and by their program of having medical students met the families of body donors. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. I am originally from Oklahoma, but have been out of the state for some time. I wondered how I would rate OU's College of Medicine against some of the others that I have applied to/interviewed with -- at the presentation/interview OU really exceeded every expectation I had and is now a top choice for me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Most of the information presented during the visit was available online or in materials sent out by the school. It was great to be able to affirm some of the information and actually see many of the tools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a very positive interview experience with two physicians and a fourth-year med student. Any stress was purely the result of my own nature, not the result of their interviewing style. The interview was primarily conversational in nature and based on my personal statement and application information. My main regret was that the interview seemed relatively short as I was enjoying talking with the interviewers and would love to have had the time to ask additional questions and find out more about their experiences with OU Medical Center and the Oklahoma community."
