What impressed you positively?

"Baylor College of Medicine is arguably the best school in Texas with amazing resources at the Texas Medical Center. Apparently, you can have a ''handshake'' interview for many of the top ranked residency programs at the TMC (ie all you have to do is shake hands to get the residency). The students were down to earth and my interviewers were really nice. " -Posted 12/06/2007 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Houston. I don't know if I could live there. I think it's funny that they put on an hour long presentation showing that it's not that bad to live there. Most of the students are from Texas and stay in Texas to do residencies. A BIG detractor for me. " -Posted 12/06/2007 | Report Response
