What are your general comments?

"I had a great time at Baylor. The day starts at 12 noon which was nice. One of the deans makes an intro speech at the beginning and we introduced ourselves as well. The day was pretty organized though it seemed they were cramped for time. The clinical tour wasn't that extensive and didn't really show their facilities in depth. Luckily my cousin is a 4th year at Baylor and he showed me more of the TMC the next day. Interviews were fairly laid back, but I found them to be a little more stressful than my others. Baylor is a great school and the clinical curriculum is outstanding at the TMC (Ben Taub, St. Luke's, TX Children's...). If I get in, I will most likely go there. Can't beat the $6550 tuition, especially for a private school." -Posted 09/26/2004 | Report Response
