    I am applying! I am OOS though. Loved their easy supplemental :) I wonder how much not requiring the bio GRE will affect their number of applications.

    CGH, I didn't realize in your greek thread that you were at OSU. What sorority are you in? Sorry to hijack. Good luck to those that are applying. If you have any questions about the school/town, feel free to PM me!

    I was in Phi Mu here when I was in undergrad. If you want a tour of the school or anything, let me know! The PS was the worst part of the whole process for me.

    I really wanted to apply to OKSU this year, then I saw in their requirements that sciences have to be within 8 years of applying. I am a non-traditional student, got my BS in 2002, so many of my general science pre-reqs are too old. I have a MS and I work in a pharmaceutical company in R&D. I guess what I am saying is I have always been involved in science, and new technology. Anyone know if they have any leniency on this rule??

    I would email Robin or Dr. Meinkoth in the admissions office. They should be able to give you the best answer. [email protected] or [email protected]

    It's usually crickets in the OKSU thread. Some more will come out of the woodwork as time goes on, but yep.

    I am applying to OK State! I was born in Tulsa, most of my family is from Chouteau area, and my dad graduated from Stillwater so I am a long time fan! I will be applying as an OOS due to an untimely move to WI about 9 years ago though so it will be a little tougher. I would love to get in here and be back in my home state! :love:

    So, OKSU doesn't require the BIO GRE? The AAVMC book says they do...

    I'm applying as an OOS. I decided last minute after realizing they no longer require the Biology portion of the GRE.

    I also applied for an OOS spot. I applied last cycle and was waitlisted - hoping for better luck this year! A little worried about how many more applicants they are going to get now that they don't require the Bio GRE, though!!

    Like late Jan or early Feb.

    They only interview in-state residents though.

    They still seem to be open on their selection process, so don't lose hope based on that.

    Granted it was a couple years ago, but I got my interview invite end of January, and had the interview end of Feb. Last year, the interviews were a little earlier in Feb.

    I guess that's what I was remembering. I had a bunch of friends that received invites I guess the interviews were the first few weeks of February is what I'm remembering. I do know that acceptances are March :) I'm out of state so I don't get an interview.

    Yep, acceptances usually go out the week before Spring Break. OOS people seem to get them before people in Stillwater because Stillwater's mail is so slow.

    You probably know what I'm talking about with the mail then LOL. It's so weird. A girl that lived 4 houses down from me got her letter on a Wednesday, but I didn't get mine until that Friday.

    All Stillwater mail is routed from Stillwater... to Tulsa... and back to Stillwater. It's pretty silly.

    I also applied, OOS. I haven't heard anything, and hate that you can't check your status on a webpage, *sigh*. I'm really glad that they accept fall 2011 transcripts!

    Sorry for the late reply! I've been busy with studying and haven't thought to check back on the thread.

    I'm IS. I also applied for Mizzou and Oregon State, but if I get accepted here then this is most likely where I'll choose! Now I'm just anxiously waiting to hear about the interview... haha.

    Hey new one! :D I know what you mean about waiting...Oklahoma is driving me crazzyyyy. Hopefully there will be a light at the end of the tunnel though.

    Also, just out of curiosity, is your avatar a picture of yourself? I love elephants!

    Yep, it sure is! My boyfriend and I took an awesome trip to Thailand two summers ago. We volunteered at Elephant Nature Park, a great foundation for domesticated elephants that have been abused or otherwise mistreated. A lot of the poor elephants there have really sad stories, but the park took them in and now they can just be happy!

    The website for the foundation is www.elephantnaturefoundation.org, if you're interested!
