"What challenges do you see for women in medicine?"

"The texas medical center is HUGE. Students were very laid back compared to the typical "east coast" school."
"They dont take a lot of out-of-state students, which I did not know when I applied"
"There are so many times to ask questions, so think of a LOT! Also, you get to meet tons of students and talk a lot. The whole day ends up being pretty long because you start at 12:00 but go until about 7... and then everyone goes to Two Rows afterward, which is pretty fun, so if you can you should go."
"It was great... besides the fact that I got a flat tire on the way to the airport... It was very laid back. I don't know if the faculty member had previously read my file, we ended up just talking about family and studying abroad. My student interviewer had a lot of very specific questions about my file."
