How did you prepare for the interview?

"I way over-prepared! SDN interview feedback, read up on topics in healthcare and a medical ethics book, participated in mock interviews and had previous interviews. None of these things came up in my interview. Basically they just had me talk about myself for 30 mins. Both interviews were very conversational." -Posted 03/01/2006 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The Texas Medical Center of course. The curriculum(1.5 yrs basic sciences 2.5 clinical). The students and the lecture I sat in on. Students have free access to the light rail that runs from downtown to the medical center--makes transportation easy and cheap. " -Posted 03/01/2006 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a torrential rain storm on my interview day so we only got to tour one of the hospitals, but a hospital is a hospital. One of our tour guides was the least PC person I have every met, albeit funny." -Posted 03/01/2006 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved this school! Well set up interview day...very little down time like at other schools and you have the option to leave after interviews are over for flights etc. The Texas Medical Center is the largest med center in the world(bigger than the NIH). It would be an amazing place to study and is brimming with opportunity. One of my interviewers was a 4th year med student and the other was a faculty member. My student host invited me to one of her morning classes. In the past I was advised not to sit in on a class b/c it would have no bearing on my decision. I totally disagree. Not only did the class get me excited about Baylor, but also medical school in general. The professor was the most dynamic lecturer I have ever witnessed and the students loved him. I also got to see how the class interacted with one another. " -Posted 03/01/2006 | Report Response
