What impressed you positively?

"I absolutely loved Baylor. It is a top ten medical school in the country and has the curriculum that must be one of the best in the country. Only 1.5 years of basic sciences; Classes only until 12:00; and opportunities to pursue other interests such as research, international health, and underserved healthcare. Students are very friendly and laid back." -Posted 09/24/2006 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a 1st year student, which I recommend since you get to know the school and the students on a more deep/personal level. She was so sweet and accomodating. Morning of the interview I went with her to school and had a few hours to chill/relax before the interview, during which I watched Alias in their student lounge! The interview began at 12:00 with a introduction from one of the nicest individuals I have ever met in my life. The first interview was with a faculty who was hard to read and related to, but I made the best out of the situation. I really couldn't tell if he had read any of my file before coming in, which was a bit frustrating. The second interview was with an MD/PhD student and it was fabulous! He was so nice and easy to talk to, and I felt that the whole session flowed really well. Overall, Baylor is amazing with just one flaw which is Houston itself. If you can get passed that, you will love Baylor!" -Posted 09/24/2006 | Report Response
