What are your general comments?

"The night before there was a dinner at a doctors house. The food was good and lots of schmoozing occured. It wasn't my sort of thing but I just tried to be friendly and talk about my interests. It went well. The next morning I have 3 MD/PhD interviews. One of these interviews was with an MD/PhD student; surprisingly, this was by far the most difficult one. The MD interviews and tours were in the after noon. There were only two of these and they were pretty casual. They went well. Compared to other schools, the tours at Baylor were quite boring." -Posted 10/10/2006 | Report Response
