What are your general comments?

"The whole experience was very relaxed and not intimidating at all. The other interviewees were very friendly as were the med students. The fin-aid and student services presentations at lunch were pretty worthless, but the hippocrates online resource was awesome. My interviewers couldn't have been nicer and more relaxed. It was really more of a conversation than a question and answer situation. They all talked just as much as I did. I didn't get any science related questions and only one ethical question (that was easy). Most of the conversation was about my background and views on the healthcare system. However, I did hear other applicants talking about their interviewers being tough and grilling them pretty hard. I guess it's just luck of the draw. OU may not be ranked by US news or known as a great med school nationally, but the facilities are impressive and I was told several times by med students that clinical experience and teaching is very substantial. They said that doing away rotations made them realize just how much more clinical experience they had received. Also, the first thing my interviewers said was that if you finish in the top 10% of the class you can get a residency anywhere you want." Report Response
