What impressed you positively?

"pretty much everything! i love their curriculum - it's systems-based, and they only have class from 8-12 most days and still get done in a year and a half! the students seemed to be a really diverse, talented group and seemed genuinely happy at baylor. they were also down to earth and relaxed and seemed like people i would enjoy spending time with. the texas medical center is amazing - there's so much there and you get incredible clincal experience at a variety of hospitals." -Posted 11/24/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"they changed last year from p/f to h/hp/mp/p/f grading - supposedly because students weren't doing as well on the comprehensive exam at the end of their 2nd year. also, the class is bigger than most schools (170), though that's really not too much of an issue. apparently it rains a lot in houston, but at least it's warm!" -Posted 11/24/2004 | Report Response

"there were like 50 other interviewees!" -Posted 11/24/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i had a great time at baylor and really fell in love with the school. the interview day is pretty laid-back, and you get a lot of opportunities to talk with students and the other interviewees. the committee meets the same day after the interviews are over, and then the waiting begins..." -Posted 11/24/2004 | Report Response
