What impressed you positively?

"Really loved this school. The interview was very low stress. After the welcome speech everyone stood around talking and I instantly met a bunch of nice people, which relaxed me. The interviewers were mostly laid back and asked about items on my application. Lots of Baylor students were involved in the interview day, and they were all enthusiastic and happy with the school. The medical center is amazing, of course. The facilities are nice and all lectures are video recorded. Lecture class time is relatively short, and you start clinical rotations half a year early. The curriculum seems really well thought out. Endless opportunities at this school, including rotations abroad. Students really help each other- for instance the 2nd years were putting on a practice anatomy practical for the 1st years while I was there." -Posted 09/10/2007 | Report Response
