I noticed that OU changed up its website and now has the following info: "The Admissions Board for 2002 began their deliberations August 9th during a three hour orientation workshop. The College of Medicine was welcomed and charged by Dean Vannatta. The 54 person board and 40 alternates decided on voting procedures, established the evaluation instrument for applicants' interviews, the awarding of interviews based on a formula of GPA and MCAT performance, and finalized the procedures for the coming year. General orientation included an overview of the curriculum, the educational program objectives for the college, and a presentation of the use of our online curriculum Hippocrates. For those of you who have friends or family members applying to colleges of medicine, you will have heard of the problems created by the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) implementation of a new database managing system. Of the 115 medical schools using centralized AMCAS application services, none of us have access to our complete applications. The applicants are anxious, the schools are anxious and AMCAS has employed additional expertise to solve the problems. The entire process will be electronic both in receiving informaton, processing it locally, and providing it to board members. Fortunately, the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine is well prepared to handle this and has received information on approximately 300 applicants as of August 10, 2001. Should you have any questions regarding the admissions process, please call Dr. Nancy Hall (405) 271-1417, Associate Dean for Admissions and Medical Education, or Ms. Dotty Shaw Killam (405) 271-2331, Director of Admissions." Does OU use secondaries? They seem to rely heavily on numbers for determining interviews, moreso than perhaps other schools. Anybody else applying to OU this year?
