I'm headed to OHSU next fall, so while I'm definitely biased, I think it is one of the best schools in the country. They produce outstanding clinicians, and are among the top schools for clinical hours. Students consistently have some of the highest National Board Exam Scores (the 2004 graduating class ranked 11th on part I and 6th on part II, with a 97%+ pass rate). The facilities are nice, and the sim labs are amazing. I also think Portland is a great place to live, and all the students I've talked to are very happy. One down side is that with the current budget cuts, tuition for Oregon residents could be increasing substantially. But for me, it's definitely worth it!

I interviewed there last year, but got waitlisted. However, I was really impressed with the school, and if I had been accepted it would have been hard for me to decide to go anywhere else. OHSU probably isn't talked about alot because they don't grant many interviews.
