    It was a decent experience. The number of hours required was fairly ridiculous. If I remember correctly, in order to get 3 credit hours I had to get 270 hours at the internship in one semester. This was pretty difficult in between classes, actual jobs that pay money, and working with the schedule of the company. In fact, I think I just got the 2 hour minimum for a Spring semester internship, and I probably had to fudge on those hours too. I think that was around 180 required hours.

    I learned a lot and worked with some cool people, but it cost me quite a bit of money. I did two internships, one in the summer that I found completely on my own, was in my hometown, and had no connection to OU. Yet, I still had to pay hundreds of dollars in fees like campus transportation, health, and other related fees that didn't affect me in any way since I was 5 hours away from campus. I loved OU, but the whole internship thing needs help. People shouldn't have to pay so much to work so hard and only get a few credit hours as a reward.
