What impressed you positively?

"Seven hospitals! Or something like it. I think Baylor is unbeatable for clinical education. The students here are really well-rounded and seem to really like one another. I also love that the school is top ranked in both primary care and research....it's the perfect school for me. The weather in Houston is nice in winter, again perfect since I had cold weather.

What impressed you negatively?

"Public transport in Houston. The "train" is laughable. Doesn't seem to be much to do in the city. Bad traffic, even on the weekend. Faculty interviewer had a half-smile on her face the whole time. Most boring interview so far." -Posted 01/13/2009 | Report Response
