What impressed you positively?

"The Dean is super friendly and seems like a great lady -not a podiatrist though, or any health profession for that matter." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I don't think they get the big picture here. Podiatry is moving forward as a profession, but I felt that OCPM is lagging behind. They don't completely understand Vision 2015. APMA asked that all schools affiliate with a major university a few years back. Obviously OCPM thought they didn't need to listen to the APMA then, so why would they listen to them now. There is NO exposure to other health fields. How are their students going to learn to work within a team of health professionals upon graduation? They had my acceptance letter ready before I even started my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, Ohio is an OK school. The facilities are good, but they seem very cramped. They accept an huge number of students compared to the other schools. Anyone with a pulse can get in. I had a friend who went there and he said there was a guy in is class who had a 2.7 undergrad gpa!!! Come on, if we are trying for parity, let's start with only admitting competent students! Again, I don't think they quite get it." Report Response
