What impressed you positively?

"Students were enthusiastic and felt like they made the right choice. The mod system seems very cool, and the fact that everything is online is a huge plus for me. Students get to decide whether going to class or not works for them -- we're adults, so I think it's a good system. Block exams. Sort of progressive curriculum that is updated a lot.

What are your general comments?

"Interview was 3 on 1 with two physicians and one MS4. It was open-file. One of the physicians and the student were easy-going, but one physician totally grilled me. I know some people get really laid back interviews at OU, but that was not my experience. I thought I did really bad, but I got in. The day started with a presentation by Dr. Hall about the curriculum. I was in the first interview group, so I interviewed and then went on a tour. We saw all the simulation stuff, and the professor who runs it seemed very nice. The students were friendly and claimed that OU was very pro-student -- if you have a problem with something, the administration will listen to you about it. The day ended with lunch and a quick presentation about financial aid and student services (which they have a lot of -- very good, imo)." Report Response
