What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Like I said, they asked mainly stuff about my experiences. They also asked what do you do for fun? If not medicine, what else? What will stress you out the most about med school? Also, asked me indirectly why I want to be a doctor, or more specifically in my case, if behavioral medicine was likely to be my choice and why. By the way I have heard a lot that OU doesn't like to hear that you are hell bent on one track in medicine, so I added a little bit about how I like other stuff too and blah blah, which they responded by positively nodding. Just don't be black and white, you know? " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Be ready for ethical q's, just have someone ask you random ones and practice answering them by looking at all sides of the issue--so they see you can look at the big picture. I was lucky, I didn't have to think that hard, but I heard a lot of others talking about how they were asked those q's. " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Good luck!" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"none were "interesting."" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Actually, I was lucky and did not get any ethical q's or healthcare q's. BUT others that day DID, so be prepared. They only asked q's about me, and they drew from my personal statement. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I researched some things I didn't feel confident about, like malpractice, socialized medicine, differences in healthcare providers, and I also read up on current events in psychiatry b/c that is my area of interest." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the interviewers were really warm and friendly and the facilities were great. OU has everything that other schools brag about, from special interest groups to studying abroad. They have a lot of stuff online- videos of dissections, lectures, ANYTHING. Also, they let you know VERY soon if you are accepted or not- less than 2 weeks!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing....seriously. I was more impressed than I thought I'd be. Before, I honestly wasn't too impressed w/OU because I bought into all the BS about private schools and stuff, but OU is definitely underated." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Just don't forget anything. and if you've never been there, make sure you know how to get to the parking lot. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I won't lie, I was a nervous wreck, even tho I knew I would do well. I was close to hyperventilating. But luckily my interview wasn't until 10:30 and there was a tour before, so I calmed down by the time I interviewed. They took us in 3 different groups at different times for our interviews. Each group had about 10 or less people. They took our group of 10 to rooms scattered on a floor in the library. the room was very small and the table seated 4- barely. I had a man, woman, and a 4th yr girl. They were really nice and seemed to like me (I got accepted,by the way- with scholarship). Then we had lunch and a lady talked to us about financial aid and gave us a packet w/everything you need to know about paying for med school. Then we went on our other tour while others interviewed (the three grps were rotating). then i went home!" Report Response
