What are your general comments?

"Great day - they keep you well fed too. Started at 12 with a light lunch (wraps) and an introduction. Two 30 minutes interviews sometime between 1-4pm, if you're not interviewing then you're hanging out in the auditorium which is your ''home base'' for the day - you can elect to go on a tour of the school while you wait/when you're done with interviewing. Curriculum overview at 4, the clinical tour (Ben Taub's, TCH, St Lukes - depends on where your tour guide takes you), dinner (sandwiches) at 6 with a funny presentation about life in Houston and a student panel (slightly disorganized). Day's over at 7pm, but you can go to an optional hangout afterwards at a local pub (I didn't attend)" -Posted 10/19/2007 | Report Response
