At the school
"Lots of probing specific questions about my undergraduate classes."
"What sort of specialty are you thinking of?"
""You mention a desire to help people, and there are a lot of ways to help in medicine. How much time will you spend doing things for people, and how will you disconnect?" "
"Parle vous frances? (I don't)"
"A very specific and difficult biochemistry question about my research for which I had no good answer."
"Everything - the facilities, the opportunities, the students, even the area of Houston was not bad, and last but not least, the quality of my fellow interviewees was simply amazing and assured me that I was at a real top-notch program."
"To be honest, nothing. I will say that most of the students complained about the parking/transportation system, but I could get over that very quickly if I'm lucky enough to get in."
"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."
"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. "
