What are your general comments?

"*Official Interview Day doesn't start until 12pm so if you stay with a student host, they can take you to class with them in the morning. *There's a welcome from Dr. Johnson and a member of the admin staff, Ms. Miller-Wasik *Break off for interviews *Regroup at around 4pm, go for clinical tour *Regroup at 5pm, eat dinner (sandwiches), learn about the curriculum, student panel talks, hilarious slide show on Life in Houston. *7pm interviewees and students head on over to Two Rows to eat, drink, and be merry. Basically, if you interview at Baylor, it's a real treat." -Posted 09/20/2003 | Report Response
