They were very slow last year, especially for out-of-staters. On the other hand, the young woman who answers the phone in admissions is very nice and helpful. I loved that school (but was rejected post-interview :( ).

I had a dozen interviews last year, and they all sort of run together. As I recall, I had 2, maybe 3, interviews at OHSU, and spent a lot of time explaining why they should admit me, when I would no doubt get into my state school (U. of Washington, because Alaska doesn't have a med school. They reserve a whopping 10 slots for Alaskans. I was waitlisted). I actually thought the interviews went well, and I followed up with a letter detailing my ties to Oregon, which are extensive. Good luck to all applying there. Portland is a wonderful city, and the students there are very happy campers.

I have worked in surgery and research at OHSU for the past 5 years. The only downfall I see in this school from a peripheral point and interaction among many people, is the library. They have 2 libraries and one is fairly good, but the other is absolutely terrible. I have never seen a more pathetic library than the one here... which, as a student, would concern me. Who knows, maybe a nice library isn't a big deal too you, but i'll be applying here next year and it won't be my first choice simply because i feel it could do better with the library... of course, my first choice must have all the details!

Everyone does not have the same interviewer(s), and even the same interviewer tailors their questions to the applicant at hand. I recommend Essay Edge's Medical Interview site for great tips on interview preparation.
