An excellent school with a nursing curriculum based on holistic care. Teachers with active careers who are up to date on modern technological advances. A well known school with an esteemed reputation.
Tips for prospective students
Have a high GPA to apply. Self-care is crucial. Try not to stress.
Academic Rigor
It is an incredibly rigorous program.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms.
Food and Dining
The campus has good food choices. I am on the Ashland Campus at SOU.
What to do for fun
Ashland has a great out doors scene. There isn't much night life around but there isn't much time for that anyway.
Bang for the buck
Use the advice of the upper class persons trying to help you. They are on your side!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
You can get keys to locked rooms in the library, even when everything else is full.

Am learning a lot
I am learning an amazing amount every single day.
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.
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.
Tips for prospective students
Survive the admissions process and you'll be fine.
Great for these types of students
Low-stress, industrious, determined.

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.
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.
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.
Dorm Life
OHSU does no offer dorms.
Food and Dining
The campus that OHSU offers there programs through offer this not OHSU.
