What impressed you negatively?

"Even though the student we talked to played down the competitiveness of the school, there still seemed to be a lot of "gunners" and even "snipers"--a term I hadn't heard before which the tour guide explained was people who pretend not to care about their grades but secretly study all the time." -Posted 01/24/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day began with a rather long and pointless introduction. This was followed by two interviews and some free time to tour the academic facilities and chat with students and other applicants. There were some presentations about special academic tracks and life in Houston and a tour of the gigantormous Texas Medical Center. Everyone seemed very nice, although some of the admissions reps (both student and faculty) seemed especially fake. " -Posted 01/24/2004 | Report Response
