At the school
"What are the problems we may run into with genetic engineering? "
"How do you interact in a group setting?"
"As an applicant, what areas of medicine are you interested in now (this of course may change over time)?"
"Which three classes that you took undergrad will help you most in medical school (mostly because everything i guessed he said was wrong - he ended up telling me that my english classes were most important)"
"how would you fix the healthcare problem?"
"read baylor's website, looked over sdn interview feedback, reread my application"
"the facilities are amazing - texas medical center is like its own little city south of houston. the area that the school was in was nice, too."
"i don't know what it was that was negative - i just got a not-so-good feel. the weather, i guess..."
"that i wouldn't want to go to baylor. i wouldn't have wasted the trip down there."
"there is absolutely nothing wrong with this school. in fact, the facilities are amazing, the curriculum seems pretty nifty, and you get into clinical rotations early. there was just something about the school that i didn't like. didn't get a good vibe from it. my interviews were with a pediatrician and a dean. the dean basically asked me questions about healthcare, waited for my answer, then told me i was wrong and brought up some completely unheard of problem in healthcare (things that are probably only important to him. for example, the disparity of healthcare received by the wealthy and poor is not a problem at all. however, if we could only make our healthcare system more like mexico's then everything would be fine. you figure it out). there were almost 50 people interviewing there, most of them from texas. at the other places i've interviewed, there's been less than 15. i knew after ten minutes that i couldn't spend four years of my life in houston. don't know why. i'm sure that i'd get a great education there, but the place isn't for me. that's what interviews are for, i guess, figuring out where you'd be happy..."
