"MSAR, BCM website, SDN, etc." -Posted 12/01/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students, the curriculum, the facilities, the carpeted gross lab, crazy high Step scores, lots of potential for mentorship in any field imaginable. Pass/fail. Abundant clinical opportunities. Tracks. Research everywhere if you're interested." -Posted 12/01/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The financial instability. The recent instability of clinical affiliations. It seems like administrative types got careless, overconfident, or were just haphazard in their planning. If the Rice/BCM merger happens, I would imagine that tuition would go up significantly to align with the current Rice tuition schedule. Even then, serious financial and credit issues may still be present. Very difficult/expensive to commute to school...simultaneously difficult to find housing nearby that suits families and dogs. " -Posted 12/01/2009 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interviews would be more pointed and structured than I was used to. Didn't feel like I did anything to stand out. " -Posted 12/01/2009 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It seems that a lot of people feel that their BCM interviews are a little impersonal. I'm not sure that's the best descriptor...but my interviews did feel pretty generic. And I would imagine that's by design. " -Posted 12/01/2009 | Report Response
