What impressed you positively?

"The school appears to truly put the students first and give them every opportunity to succeed. I was also very impressed with the hippocrates system and the patient simulators. Finally, everyone from the school was so nice, interviewers, tour-guides, and amdinistration included." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lunch was very good, but all of the presentations that we had after lunch were unimpressive. I can't even tell you what they were b/c they were so bad. Also, one of my interviewers was a foreign-born pathologist. I had a very hard time understanding his questions and relating to him." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"OU is a top notch school. I didn't think it would be as impressive as it seemed. Oh, and I have read a couple of negative exeriences in which the claim was made that OU was trying to compare itself to other top-tier programs. Personally, I heard none of that. I only heard them claim to provide the best education that they could, which was impressive. Again, I just recommend that you relax!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really had a good experience. Everyone was so nice, and they went out of their way to make the interview experience painless.
