What are your general comments?

"The whole thing was less than impressive. Facilities were acceptable at best...MUCH room for improvement. I've interviewed at 26 schools, been accepted to 7 already including OU in oklahoma city...OU seems to be less of a "medical school" as it does a place for dishing out training for anything medical related (MDs, all kinds of nurses, dentists, you name it) and they all share the same resources. The fact that their Emergency Medicine residency program was shut down by the State (for some reason no one will talk about) is an accurate indication of the quality of the medical education they provide imo. I would have never known about these residency shutdowns from their website or literature...I only found out through pure luck because I specifically asked about an Emergency Med residency and was told they no longer had one and were "trying to get reapproved for one". The students I talked with seemed to be kinda "spacey"...one told me the med students and dental students don't get along and there is some big competition at a softball game...I was just thinking..."what the h*ll does softball have to do with becoming a highly skilled physician?"...All the students said they don't even go to most of the classes. I'm not sure how that'll work out for them. I guess if you're a genious you don't need to go, but I'm no genious. I've already declined their acceptance and told them I would be going somewhere else. I would rank this lowest of all schools I've toured or interviewed at. No offense to the people of Oklahoma intended, it is simply the truth." Report Response
