What impressed you positively?

"Clinical volume available at the TMC. Inside of BCM is seems very new. Pass/fail grading system in pre-clinical years. Students here have 8 months to do whatever they want (study for the boards, do research, get married..) because they finish pre-clinicals in 18 months. This means you can have tons of time to study for the boards. 20k/yr tuition OOS, and you can very easily get Texas residency from what I gathered. The medical students who helped run interview day were very friendly." -Posted 09/19/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day seemed extremely impersonal because they have so many people at once. I was surprised by how much I dislike Houston. Baylor is smack dab in the middle of a huge professional complex, and not the place to go if you want a college environment. No real rec center. I don't think I met a SINGLE MS1 the entire day. They aren't affiliated with MD Anderson or Methodist. Parking is $12/day if you want to drive to the TMC..?!!" -Posted 09/19/2009 | Report Response
