What impressed you positively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Be prepared to be impressed. Also, you may want to eat a large breakfast right before you go because you don't get fed until around 6 pm, and even then you just get a sandwich and some chips." -Posted 09/06/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Quite simply the best school I have interviewed at. During my time there, I felt like I was in the presence of the best pre-med students in the country. If you're lucky enough to get an interview here, then you will be going to medical school somewhere. The interview day itself is long, so prepare by eating a large meal before you go and review any research you have done and anything else that might stand out in your application. They accept 70% of their class from Texas and 30% from out of state, and it was about a 50-50 ratio of in-state to out-of-state students on this, their first day of interviewing.
