What was the most difficult question?

"I did not have any difficult questions. I was prepared for ethical, healthcare, political, and shock questions, but did not receive any. I think these questions are asked a lot usually, so you should still be prepared for such questions, but my interviewers were very interested in my activities more than anything else, and we ran out of time. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Undergraduate University Pre-professional Committee mock interview, thought out and wrote out answers to possible questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are nice, I was impressed with the Student Support Services and their genuine care for students. The Online curriculum website with recordings of all lectures is impressive. The new simulation building that will open in January of 2009, with birthing and operation simulators. The modules, (assigned friends/study buddies), with each having 20 students in it and having their own group study room, were very impressive. The mod rooms were very nice, newly rennovated, and have desks, lockers, and internet availability for each student." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus living is very limited (~50 apartments...), and they are small and overpriced. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview is a semi-blind interview, with the 1st half being closed academic file. The interviewers have your activities list and personal statements, but recommendation letters, GPA, and MCAT are all closed. You are asked to leave for ~10 minutes and then return and they continue with any more questions, including, but not limited to, academics." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was not expecting to be so impressed with OU, but I definitely fell in love with it. The interview was much more relaxed than I thought it would be, very conversational instead of interrogation-like. " Report Response
