How did you prepare for the interview?

"Months before = sat down and really ask myself why, what, how, who I am and why medicine is my calling. Read OU's website and really get to know the school and the PEOPLE there. Know why I want to go to OU. Getting in shape..yep the way you look helps with 1st impressions and it also boost your self-confidence (it was one of my resolution anyways). Buy a nice suit (gray or black), a topcoat, the highest ply cotton dressshirt you can afford, tie (i suggest light blue or OU's color) and new dressshoes. You only have 30-50mins to impress 3 people who you have never met before in your life, it is worth every penny. 2 Weeks before = SDN and Mock interviews with girlfriend and older brother who is an onc/ob/gyn surgeon (make sure you get them to prep you for diff. types of personalities, my gf was the laid back interviewer while my brother was the intense-i'm-going-to-eat-you-alive interviewer (stand your ground in a nice way, don't be defensive, be able to back up everything you say, don't falter in your beliefs). Night before = relax, be yourself, congratulate yourself that you have gotten this far, pray & a good night sleep." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Hippocrates (all the lessons, Simulation Room w/ Dr. Schmidt, the Gross Anatomy Lab w/ pickled deformed babies in jars (very cool), Classrooms are all wired!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The MOD rooms (assigned homerooms, yes people, we all get cubbies again like in first grade) are a bit worn down. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Names of interviewers so I can questions about them and get to know them." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After reading some negative feedbacks, I guess I was lucky to have laid back interviewers. We actually laugh here and there. But in general, it was a very good experience. I'm very impress with OU. I get the feel that they really care about each individual students. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. " Report Response
