What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You won't know what time your interview is until you arrive. It will be at 9:00, 10:00, or 11:00. They will split you into 3 groups of about 10 people, and you will interview at the same time as the other students in your group. There are 10 interview committees, so once your group arrives for the interview, you will each be escorted into a private room to be interviewed individually. This way, you don't have to wait "your turn," to be interviewed. All 10 of you are interviewed at the same time, but in different rooms with different people. ALSO, since there are 9-10 different interview committees, remember that there is a lot of opportunity for variation in the personalities and interview styles of the committees. Even if people tell you their interview was a "breeze," be prepared for a high-stress interview just in case!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I like the interview style at OU. The first 30-40 minutes is "blind" (they have no knowledge of your GPA, MCAT scores, or your letters of recommendation) and the last 10-20 minutes is "open." You will step out of the room for 5 minutes while they open an envelope to reveal the "secret" info. I think this seems like a very fair approach to interviewing. " Report Response
