What are your general comments?

"good option for texas students. best school in the region and in the south. i interviewed at some other good schools that had superior candidates. the out of state interviewees at baylor are markedly sharper than the in staters. competition among them for admission is much stiffer. medical center is a pretty impressive place, a good location to learn medicine. high tech and renowned, big buildings. parking is a chore though. 1 doc and 1 student interview. a lot of ppl dont like houston, summers are wretched too." -Posted 02/11/2006 | Report Response
