What impressed you positively?

"Baylor is an absolutely OUTSTANDING school. If I am lucky enough to get accepted, there is no doubt that I am going here. Facilities in the Texas medical center are amazing--with training at St. Lukes for private health care training, at the VA for government-based national ccare, the Ben Taub general hospital for underserved/county care, AND a new outpatient clinic. The students and faculty here are very collegial, open, and positive--you can tell that the students are VERY happy--one reason may be the early introduction to clinical medicine(within the first two weeks of school starting!) and an emphasis on body system training instead of boring stuff like straight biochem. The interview day is set up really well--very relaxed, fun, good tours, and great presentations. Even though it is an interview day, I think Baylor does a good job of making it no pressure--which is what it seems like they do for their med students during their time there." -Posted 10/16/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much other than the heat during the day. I'm from the northeast and wore a HEAVY suit--don't do it." -Posted 10/16/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That their anatomy professors are awesome. I was a little hesitant after one past review on SDN, but after talking with students--that is completely the opposite of what is really true--students went on and on about how awesome they are and how they make the first year anatomy classes fun and MANAGEABLE. " -Posted 10/16/2005 | Report Response
