What impressed you positively?

"Everyone there was amazingly nice. So much time off for students, yet they continue to be one of the best med schools in the country (9 months off to do whatever you want, such as study for boards, chill on the beach, do research, etc. They have some of the highest board exam scores in the nation. Such a diverse group of people, amazingly friendly and laid back yet hardworking at the same time. Clinical facilities at Baylor are unmatched in terms of their hands on patient care. Nice mix of VA, private, public hospitals, as well as outpatient clinics in the Texas Medical Center makes this an absolutely incredible place to learn medicine. Many faculty are tops in their fields. " -Posted 10/07/2005 | Report Response
