At the school
"Explain this part of your AMCAS essay."
"What traits do you have that will make you a good doctor?"
"How would you measure whether you were a successful physician? (and I couldn't say outside measurements, like mortality rates)"
"BCM website, SDN, mock interview by pre-med advisor"
"pretty much everything - students, curriculum, facilities. Curriculum provides for a ton of flexibility and/or time off. The students seem incredibly happy here and well-adjusted. They made it very clear that if you're ultra-competitive, this is not the place for you."
"Students did complain about parking, but if you live in the right place it becomes a non-isssue."
"Members of the admissions committee go out to Two Rows afterwards with everyone. Although you're already ranked based on that day's interview, you will still be ranked against upcoming interviewers. The point is, behave while you're there and know that pretty much anyone you talk to could be on the admissions committee."
"Baylor is extremely impressive. This is my first interview, and they set an incredibly high standard for other schools to try and match. Plus, the tuition is incredibly low. This is a top-tier school and you could come out of here with less than $100K in debt very easily. If they accept me I'll very likely be coming."
