    Great for these types of students

    Low-stress, industrious, determined.

    Tips for prospective students

    Survive the admissions process and you'll be fine.

    Bang for the buck

    Had to dock some stars here for the in-state tuition. OHSU has been the most expensive public medical school in the country in recent years, and it's probably still in the top three. But OHSU has been innovative with its curriculum and is always improving to stay at the forefront, so I couldn't complain too much. Medical school is simply going to be expensive in this country.

    Am enjoying being here

    Hard work, but a pleasure to be here. My classmates are wonderful and the instruction is top notch. I look forward to spending more time with the nursing, physician assistant, and dental students as the curriculum evolves.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning an amazing amount every single day.

    The campus that OHSU offers there programs through offer this not OHSU.

    Dorm Life

    OHSU does no offer dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The programs that OHSU offers are difficult and require you to be dedicated to the program and willing to put everything you have into the program.

    Tips for prospective students

    Their process can be difficult and take time so give yourself time, you don't really know what you'll need to do until you start the process. No matter what program you are applying to, make sure that you are prepared and understand how difficult it could be to get into and stay in the program.

    In three sentences

    They are a very difficult school to get into, so the school will expect you to have your act together. They have very good customer service and are very willing to answer questions. It's best to try and get your information and then go to them with your questions.
