What impressed you positively?

"The school is high-tech! Faculty & staff are VERY approachable..Open door policy! Some professors will even meet you @ the local coffee-shop! Is that dedication or what? The students are also very approachable and laid-back..The 3rd & 4th years are also willing to help you & assist w/ questions....Tour guides DID NOT bash other schools!!----(since I thought they would)... 1) Anatomy Lab 2) Laid-back professors 3) Student relations (friendly/helpful) 4) Cheap cost of living 5) Gas I saw was $2.65 on 10/10/08 (good for SUV/minivans.. 6) Competitive housing prices are (+) for people w/ families (some landlords offer 3 months free rent w/ lease!!) 7) I have a family so security is VERY important to me.. 8) LITTLE traffic !! " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Honestly, all the rumors you hear about OCPM are subjective....Class of 2012 is the 1st to go to class in the new building, so don't believe all the hype.....GO there and see for yourself!!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"NOT to listen to all the crap about OCPM posted on SDN...I went there closed-minded not expecting much......This WAS NOT my #1 until I completed my interview/tour...I'm canceling my confirmed interviews w/ DMU, AZPod, & Barry.." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I toured/interviewed w/ (2) other people..Tour guide was led by (3) 1st year students...NOT 1 time did I hear them bash the other schools, but I did ask them to tell me OCPM comparisons to the other schools that they interviewed....Personally, I think the school is great and I will accept my invitation there for Class of 2013.. In order, we had our tour, individual interview, Q&A session, lunch (& mini-interview) Dr. Spencer, & the Dean of Academic Affairs/VP Dr. Heatherington.....After lunch, we were brought back to a room then went to a final 1 on 1 session.. Everyone I came across had PLENTY of patience to answer my 100+ questions..I really WANTED to hate this school, but instead I fell in love with it along with the faculty/students, and area! You won't be disappointed! -Good Luck!!" Report Response
