What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The admissions committee gathers at 5PM on the day of the interview to review and rank the candidates. If you are one of the top people in your interview group, you will be phoned in two weeks. If you aren't one of those lucky people, you may have to wait up until June. About 650 people ae interviewed, roughly 300 are offered spots, and 168 matriculate each year. Of the people being interviewed on the same day as me, about 1/2 had already graduated from college. " -Posted 12/03/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Baylor is an incredible school with great faculty and clinical opportunities. The interview day was well-organized and allowed you to get to know the school and its curriculum better than some of the other schools I have interviewed at. The actual interviews weren't very stressful and seemed to be designed to let the interviewer get to know you as more than an MCAT score or list of accomplishments. Baylor is my number one choice :)" -Posted 12/03/2005 | Report Response
