"the city" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of shiny fantastic people all around at UT-Houston. The students seemed candid, kind & sincere about there medical school experiences. Faculty/staff were congenial, genuine & true role models for their prospective fields. The Dean of Admission's opening remarks/speech was notable for not only providing inspiration and eliciting excitement for the field of medicine but also grounding "eager all-conquering&invincible-soon-to-be-doctors" by acknowledging the not-so glamorous-realities of medicine and imprinting the commitment and responsibilities that come with the honor of being a doctor. The Texas Medical Center is the WORLD's (not the nation's) largest medical center and the opportunities to be exposed/study/learn medicine are limitless. The medical school has it's own gymnasium with cardio equipment, weights, bb court, aerobics room & locker rooms; There are no letter grades or class rankings; Classes can be viewed and accessed over the internet at any time which frees up students' mornings/days for more hands-on experiences with doctors/hospitals. There are many preceptership programs & research opportunities...enough in quantity & variety to suit every students needs, likes, & personalities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Texas Medical Center is huge. We saw a surgery in progress during the Texas Heart Institute Tour. Classes are available online one hour each lecture in streaming video format. The students were supportive of one another. There is a huge emphasis on clinical care (as opposed to research). My interviews (along with others whom I met) were with doctors (MD and PhD) in areas I had listed as being interested. They offer some interesting programs, one of which allows students to analyze paintings in a nearby museum for subjects' emotions in order to more efficiently diagnose a patient. They also have the Problem Based Learning program and something along the lines of a spirituality in medicine program like those mentioned in Newsweek's recent article."

"The students were great." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole Texas Medical Center how everything is right there in one area. Plus, we got to see the Texas Heart Insitute with doctors performing surgury (which I'm hoping to do) so I could have spent the entire day there." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Parking/traffic is expensive/awful. Everyone said to live in a close apartment with a free shuttle or to live along the rail (some type of public transit rail system). It's like $100/month for parking in the TMC for your first and second year, so no one drives" More from this Member | Report Response

"The social the night before the interview was very disorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston traffic." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed very stressed and not as happy as others I visited." More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum doesn't give you a lot of self-study time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nada" More from this Member | Report Response

"Hugeness of medical center...kind of overwhelming." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston humidity compared to CA coastal weather. Our student tour guides seemed to have a bit of "small man syndrome" with respect to Baylor." More from this Member | Report Response

"They don't hand out very much prematch offers so interviewing early isn't much of an advantage. Houston is very humid. " More from this Member | Report Response

"it snowed my day (yeah SNOWED in houston), so they had to cancel the bus tour which was just disappointing. The social the night before was ok, but the music was SO LOUD that it was hard to talk to everyone. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just that one tough interviewer. Everything else looked great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really!" More from this Member | Report Response

"No relationship with Texas Children's is a little bit of a downer. The size of the class makes it feel like a bit of a 'doctor factory'. Traditional curriculum leads to 'hell weeks' of exams throughout the preclinical years. Not P/F. " More from this Member | Report Response

"At student social, one of the students was badmouthing other schools. Not impressive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"humidity. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No parking for commuter students." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviwers was a guest faculty member so when I asked him a question about UT Houston, he said "I don't know" and left it at that...." More from this Member | Report Response

"did not get tour because it was md.phd" More from this Member | Report Response

"absolutely nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"They interview a lot of people and you can tell they are looking for you to mess up something; there are very few prematches." More from this Member | Report Response

"tour guides were a little immature" More from this Member | Report Response

"School is right in the thick of things. It gets really humid there. There's not a lot of diversity in the student body." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour is interesting, but it was extremely hot outside." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the med students didn't hear their match results for the school until may or june" More from this Member | Report Response

"You have walk a long ways to each interview. My second interview was on the other side of the TMC. MD Anderson tour was cancelled because of the rain. School is run down" More from this Member | Report Response

"pretty much nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school tried to be personal. My first interview was very rushed. The guy was 15 minutes late, the next interview was already there so all in all it lasted 15 minutes and would have been shorter had I not asked a lot of questions that I had." More from this Member | Report Response

"Horrible traffic, difficult getting in subsidized student housing" More from this Member | Report Response

"seemed a little impersonal" More from this Member | Report Response

"Humidity and the cost of living." More from this Member | Report Response

"parking, construction around the TMC" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only bad thing about Houston is the weather, which everyone there will admit." More from this Member | Report Response

"I hate Houston. I just hate it. It's in as nice an area of Houston as I think it gets, but its still sprawlsville. But I could come up with nothing negative about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"the tour was long and it was a big group in the afternoon...it was hard to hear the tour guide, found myself just gong through the motions to finish the day...cuz my interviews were in the morning" More from this Member | Report Response

"That final exams were in place, so many of the students were holed up in classes, and my tour guide was exhausted, having just come out of a gross anatomy final. Gotta admire his dedication to the school for doing a tour after a final!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location is nice but everything is so busy- just a personal preference" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student-interviewee panel discussion was a bit unorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel that they tried too hard to illustrate their ''laid-back'' mentality. Unless you're a genius, I don't feel medical school should be taken lightly." More from this Member | Report Response

"My tour guide didn't take us to MD Anderson and didn't quite know as much about the various facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, the construction that is going on due to the latest flood, but that is expected. Also, because the students were having tests that day, I was unable to really converse with any of them. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first student that was leading my tour group seemed arrogant and pretentious... which made everything that he showed me seem unimpressive. But other students seemed cool and nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing other than the blistering heat." More from this Member | Report Response

"kinda empty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking is an issue, a couple of big city assholes lurk around the school. They tell you to go to a different elevator because they don't want to go down to the ground floor with you when they're going to floor 11. Anatomy labs are 8 people to a body..." More from this Member | Report Response

"My second inteviewer seemed to have a contempt for out of state people." More from this Member | Report Response

"The heat. Seriously, it's hot there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Everyone seemed to ignore the fact that Baylor was across the street. Guess they don't like addressing that obvious reality." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I'm in love." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cramped nature of downtown" More from this Member | Report Response

"They cut out all the speeches about the school and most of the information about the school and area was answered by the students which wasn't that bad. Walking around in the heat before the interviews made everyone really hot and sweaty. " More from this Member | Report Response

"tour guide got lost 4 times, unorganized day" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm kind of an architecture snob, so the layout and appearance of some floors on the school bothered me. Some older, unrenovated floors seemed dark, secluded, and slightly depressing. The ones renovated after Allison, however, looked great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Leaving Houston during rush hour on a Friday afternoon is definitely a bad idea; I had to catch a flight out of Dallas the next morning so I had to leave then; I wouldn't recommend leaving Houston at that time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing - I would LOVE to go to this school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The plane ticket cost to fly down to interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction which created some confusion on how to enter the building. But, there's construction everywhere so...." More from this Member | Report Response

"sometimes the size of everything seemed overwhelming" More from this Member | Report Response

"School felt bland - didn't offer anything I couldn't find elsewhere, and I couldn't go on many tours. Also the actual structure inside the school looks and feels very old." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was very disorganized...they let everyone just go around whenever" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students didn't seem as close as other schools, and I missed out on a couple presentations because of my interviews. " More from this Member | Report Response

"1st and 2nd years pay $10 per day for parking or find alternate transportation. Also tours were given by first years that didn't know the place. We got lost 6 times. Absolutely rediculous!" More from this Member | Report Response

"they didn't do a great job selling the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although most faculty members tried to sell their school, some mentioned that UT-H can't compare to schools like Baylor or Duke (my home institution). "I'm sure you will get many choices, so perhaps you should consider the name and reputation of each school before you decide on one to attend." It just made them seem less confident in their own school." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviews were scheduled during all of the hospital tours, so I only got to tour the med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't able to tour every place, esp MD Anderson and the Texas Heart Institute, although that may be because the place is so big." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was 30 min late (althought she was the sweetest lady so I didn't mind too much). The second interviewer did not take any notes or have anything on her desk except for a diet coke. It seemed like she did not want to be there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"tour was disorganized and thrown together." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I am very pleased with my interview there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day is a bit disorganized. Some people only had 1 interview instead of 2. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not able to attend many tours due to my interviews, interviewees were left to figure out the day" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Gunn seemed kind of condescending" More from this Member | Report Response

"The parking is $10 a day which will definately make me want to live close by the school " More from this Member | Report Response

"organization of the tours and the entire interview day" More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic & lots o people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Admissions Director Dr. Gunn must be one of the most rude people I have ever met. Also, the day is not that well organized. Such a strong school clinically should do a lot more to sell their school, but the interview day doesn't give you the impression that the Admissions people don't seem to have the charisma or enthusiasm that any medical school admissions recruiters should have. I thought A&M did a far better job selling their school, even though academically and even clinically they might not be as strong as UT-H. " More from this Member | Report Response

"organization. there was a alot of free time before and between interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"i can't think of anything" More from this Member | Report Response

"students seemed to have an inferiority complex with baylor" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student of the 1st tour said some negative things about the school across the street. I don't care much for elitism in the first place so I don't want to be in a place with a bunch of people with inferiority complexes. Luckily this wasn't so about the rest of the students I met, just this guy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical center is huge and crazy. There is no parking. Their board scores were under national average last year. The administration and faculty were avoiding discussion of the board scores like the plague." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is the least organized interview day of the TX schools. I think they interview way too many students and they are understaffed for it. Tours could possibly be more organized to allow you to see everything" More from this Member | Report Response

"i got EXTREMELY lost coming into houston; it was my first time there and i spent 9 hrs in my car the day before, fighting traffic and getting lost; i only had one interview because they were understaffed; students didn't seem as friendly as those in other schools" More from this Member | Report Response

"almost everything: female ophthalmologist interviewer was 30 mins late and rude (she was in her office with another interviewee the whole time; heard she has done this before). better school just across the street. unhappy, complaining students (wishing to have gotten into baylor). ~1 month to study for step 1. below average board scores. 8-5pm days. weird and quirky dean (who talks in detail about anal exams during a welcome address?). curriculum not integrated. lana gaines." More from this Member | Report Response

"No financial aid brief." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the interview time should be longer, there is more that could have been discussed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students were in the final exams, so they had limited tours." More from this Member | Report Response

"The horrible map that is incorrect & confusing. The huge group of interviewees. The room numbers for interviews could be wrong." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were aged. There doesn't seem to be much to do in the city of San Antonio." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student body panel was not as impressive as compared to other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The parking and humidity were awful. Also the maps were not very good so I ended up walking quite a ways in the morning to find the main entrance (the main entrance is on the east side of the medical school building next to the library)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston is HOT. Goodness, I came from Dallas where it was a little breezy so I brought with me a very light jacket. Stepping out in Houston I looked like a freak! I had no idea there was such a weather difference. I was sweating walking on the different tours outside. Also, traffic is horrendous, but that is to be expected in any big city downtown area. I got lost trying to find the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewees were left to their own voilitian (i.e. find the buliding your interview is in with only a shoddy map)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of down time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Every medical student I talked to said the school was "alright". Nothing really positive (must have been exam week)." More from this Member | Report Response

"houston traffic ofcourse" More from this Member | Report Response

"Med School is in a very "downtown" atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to wait a long time for my second interview (I had the last one of the day), but that wasn't a really big deal" More from this Member | Report Response

"How I could only take one tour b.c. of interview schedules." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't even get to go on the school tour because there are so many things going on at once. Also, we pretty much only got to talk to second-year students (the first years were taking tests), and from what they said, they seem to be in lectures all of the time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Classes at UT Houston are everyday for about 8 hours. Yar." More from this Member | Report Response

"The chancelor of admissions started his speech 5 minutes before scheduled and I arrived with my sponsor 5 minutes after scheduled." More from this Member | Report Response

"couldnt do all the tours because of the way the interviews are scheduled" More from this Member | Report Response

"the fact that most of the day was just spent sitting around. Both of my schedules conflicted with the tours such that I was only able to make 2 tours and missed the other two speeches." More from this Member | Report Response

"Superficial stuff, like the amount of construction going on, but that just means that they are concerned with progress!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't think anyone here has ever been through any sort of diversity training. Ultra conservative school. I felt like a flaming liberal..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston weather (it was hot and very humid), paying $10 for parking in the garage" More from this Member | Report Response

"My second interviewer kept me waiting 30 min, but she was so nice it made up for it. Also, the heat/humidity was awful and the day was kinda disorganized (I couldn't go to half the tours I wanted to.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston traffic. It took me nearly two hours Friday afternoon to go from the school to the west side of Houston! And I'm not used to the traffic...everybody kept honking at me and I thought I was driving fine! LOL!! :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking is very expensive but students can take the train to TMC and save on gas and parking. The building is run down." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing that I can think of!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The traffic in Houston makes it impossible to go anywhere without becoming stressed out." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interviewer. I had to wait 90 minutes to talk to him and he only talked to me for five minutes, asked almost all questions straight off my application, didn't seem interested in getting to know me at all. Also, the lunch they served was chicken-fried steak and succotash--gross! I hate the south sometimes." More from this Member | Report Response

"My second interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"traffic, parking, cirriculum" More from this Member | Report Response

"a bit unorganized but it was their first round of interviews so it'll prob. get better. Not just too many students around (but it was the first week of classes). Parking sucks. The whole place is one big confusing mess." More from this Member | Report Response

"disorganization, my interviews both conflicted with the tours" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much! Parking is tight but it seems like a small trade-off for a world class institution and infinite facilities/resources. Currently there is quite a bit of construction/noise because of the terrible flood, but most of it is projected to be completed soon & the final outcome promises to be spectacular!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking totally sucks, run-down med school building, both faculty interviewers were complaining about the administration, the dean of admissions is a stooge (said some sexist off-color comments). the curriculum is EXTREMELY traditional, and there doesn't seem to be much student input in fixing things. tuition is going up 50% over the next 2 years, but still dirt cheap compared to out-of-state students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Disorganization and disinterest of interviewers at times. All interviews take place in faculty members' offices. So after finding the office in the maze of color coded hallways, my first interviewer treated me like an annoyance; seldomly making eye contact, didn't shake my hand, asked vague questions, sighed...a nightmare come true. I confirmed with a fellow interviewee that they received similar treatment from the person. My second interview was much better and more laid back, but still seemed disorganized. Overall, my interview felt like trivial in regards to my interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students were stressed because they had tests in each subject at roughly the same time. One student I talked to wondered aloud how everyone was learning so much yet did not do well on board exams." More from this Member | Report Response

"school is in disrepair from flooding, but there is a lot of ongoing construction" More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school building... it's falling apart... old and outdated. Morning comute into the TMC, parking as latter a medical student, high cost of living in TMC, students are TOOOOOO laid back, seems like everyone is out for themselves even though they say that they all "work together".... working to maybe in the bars or what not... but I think that the students are all quitely competing against each other."

"Not enough time to see everything, which is understandable!" More from this Member | Report Response

"so much to tell...can't fit in here " More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston traffic is horrible." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean's speech at 7:45am left a lot to be desired, especially because he had to cut it short once he realized he had been talking for over an hour and people had to leave for interviews. Many people were unable to take tours because of interview scheduling. The overall feel was a little "too" laid back - the grading systems, the lack of class rankings, classes acknowledged by students as those of the obvious 'blow-off' variety. Traffic and parking sucked as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"some of the students on the Q&A panel were rolling their eyes when the other students were answering questions; didn't get to do a school tour because of the way my interviews were scheduled" More from this Member | Report Response

"Almost all of the students come from UT schools or A&M. They almost all end up in TX for residency. (I am a resident but go to school out of state and don't necessarily want to stay in TX for the rest of my life.) Also the facilities are in such a state of disrepair that it was sad. The "gym" is not impressive at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum is kinda traditional, which is OK" More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean talked like he was on crack, complete with an extremely sexist comment or two. The facilities were pretty grungy. The students seemed a little dippy." More from this Member | Report Response

"School seems run down. " More from this Member | Report Response

"tmc very busy, no parking " More from this Member | Report Response

"Texas Medical Center is so big, but once used to it, TMC is a wonderful learning center." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students seemed immature." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic at any time of day." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems pretty old. It is pretty Ghetto outside the TMC. The dean of admissions seemed to ramble." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews are hard to find...ask someone directions because I got lost." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of construction going on and many rooms and labs will not be where they are currently. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the Houston area" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a long day, begins at 7:45 and my last interview didn't finish until 4:45. Lots of faculty talks, which are interesting but can be long and disjointed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston is really busy. I mean, there's traffic and parking's a hassle. These seem like small things and sacrifices to make for a great medical center. But, I think as a medical school student, I would have enough stress anyways and to add worries of transportation on top of that would be a pain..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an interview scheduled at a nearby building, to which a single shuttle was provided. As a result I missed out on several tours while waiting before and after my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston is one of the most polluted cities in the country. The medical school itself wasn't that nice, they are about to tear up the whole ground floor from the flood that happened like 2 yrs ago that they are just now fixing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, nothing. I only wish we had had more opportunities to see the surrounding hospitals. Time conflictions with interviews. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not one thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some hospital tours/panels were only available during the time I had interviews; the parking." More from this Member | Report Response

"horrible color scheme" More from this Member | Report Response

"they scheduled my interviews at the same times of the speakers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"We didn't get a chance to see the anatomy lab. " More from this Member | Report Response

"i had to walk 10 min to my interview in the heat! humid heat!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not able to go on any tours. Therefore I can only make a judgement on the school based on what I have read and was told." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviews were short and one of the interviewers was very preoccupied." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, some of the lab facilities look a bit old. MD Anderson is incredible though. Parking is the worst ever, they try to make excuses about it, but its just horrible horrible planning." More from this Member | Report Response

"Did not get to interact with many medical students - they were in the middle of exams. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston is too humid!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost of living is much higher than where I am living now. Also, because of the times of my interview, I was unable to go on the tours. " More from this Member | Report Response

"i know some people mentioned parking but since i am from boston i didn't think it was a problem- seemed normal to me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The one unpleasant interviewer I had." More from this Member | Report Response

"Asthetics. It isn't the most beautiful school ever, and the research opportunities for med students are not abundant." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of construction and repair from the flooding." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a hell of a time getting to where I was supposed to be in the morning due to the enormous size of the complex and road construction due to previous flooding and the future light rail system. After finally finding where I was supposed to park, I tried to find the room we were meeting in. I ended up in a building across the street and a doctor escorted me to exactly where I was supposed to be. I was very close to being late." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a huge flood in the medical center the summer before last, and the entire basement is sort of tornn up because of it. They are in the process of fixing everything now...although no one seems to know when they'll be finished. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Downtown Houston. The flood damage is still severe, and it looks like they're not going to fix it any time soon. I don't know if the school tries to attract the top academic students - they repeatedly stated that "your grades and MCATs don't matter to us"" More from this Member | Report Response

"the construction" More from this Member | Report Response

"Houston, Why is the TMC in houston?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tours were somewhat lacking. Nothing went on inside Texas Heart Institute." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cosmetics. Not very pretty on the inside due to recent flood damage." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction- they're still working on reconstructing the ground floor which was damaged during the flood." More from this Member | Report Response

"The reconstruction. It was flooded last year, so now they have to rebuild the first floor. Compared to Baylor, it is not asthetically pleasing to look at." More from this Member | Report Response

"i didnt get to go on all of the tours because of my interview schedual." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really... lots of people were complaining about parking. I didn't get to experience that though, since I got a ride to the medical center." More from this Member | Report Response

"PARKING and TRAFFIC are horrible." More from this Member | Report Response

"parking" More from this Member | Report Response

"The Parking issue. Th students said that it's a nightmare and to have a spot in the garage you pay $120 a month. OK I will not be able to afford that." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer. The interview only lasted 15 mins. He didn't seem interested in what I had to say and he cut the interview off short because he had paperwork to do. " More from this Member | Report Response

"all of Houston (including the the Texas Medical Center) is torn up, so driving around is a pain." More from this Member | Report Response

"The amount of time I spent at the school. Most of us had one interview in the morning and another one 4 or 5 hours later. They tried to keep us occupied with tours, however. " More from this Member | Report Response

"some of the students that led the tours were very arrogant (there were some very helpful ones also); every school i have been at has touted the community-like atmosphere of the students yet only one school has actually been able to support it with examples (that school wasn't UTH)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Usual stuff, parking, construction, etc. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking. It ran me $9.00 for only 8 hours there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Several of us got stuck at the psychiatric facility (had to take a bus there) for our second interview. We sat in the lobby while each person interviewed. That was kind of a waste of our time (although I enjoyed meeting the other applicants) and we missed a lot of the afternoon activities. A student gave me a personal tour of the med school and Hermann hospital at the end of the day though. Interviews were scheduled at random times and you had to walk to the interviewer's office, which was usually in another building. It was hard to catch all the presentations and tours." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was damamged by floods in the summer, so it wasn't the prettiest place in the world. however, their future projects look impressive" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To relax more. It was a super chill day and the program really impressed me" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very bad traffic in the morning (leave early if coming from a suburb)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Where to go. Got a little mixed up with parking and such." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure to either leave right away to try and miss traffic out of Houston, or wait until past 7-8PM." More from this Member | Report Response

"How overwhelming/enormous the medical center was" More from this Member | Report Response

"That both interviews were practically closed file, and that neither of them knew much about me ahead of time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just wish it hadn't been my first interview. Would've liked to have been more relaxed during the 2, 1-on-1 interview sessions." More from this Member | Report Response

"To wear comfortable shoes. They told us, but I didn't listen...." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known the following details: There were 56 students interviewed on my day. We were split into 2 groups. One started at 7:45am and finished at 2:30pm. Mine started at 9:45am, and finished about 4:30pm. We were a little bigger than the morning group with about 30 students. Morning group did interviews first, afternoon group did interviews last. Here was my schedule for the day. I arrived in the parking garaged and went to the very top floor (8) to find parking by the elevators. It probably took at least 10 minutes to get parking and walk to registration. Budget extra time to get there. Walk straight out of the parking garage across the street into the building across the street. Go in and walk straight. You'll see the security guard. Make a left and you will see the registration table. They give you a bag containing materials for you, including a pen and notepad, maps of the area, day schedule, and interview schedule. They have breakfast for you. Opening remarks start after 10am. Nice room. Table in back of room with bagels, danishes, juice, water, and other breakfast foods. Before 10am is a great chance to start talking to other interviewees and MS 1 and 2s. Multimedia presentation about Why UT-Houston. We then went on a Bus tour. Lunch at noon (Beef, chicken, mushroom fajitas with rice and beans + chips and salsa, fruit, cookies and cake, bottles of water, tea). 1 faculty and 1 MS at each table. Med students answer questions to the whole group at the end of lunch. After lunch, we went on the walking tour (morning group had opposite tour times). We even went up to where the helicopters take off. My interviews were scheduled for 2:30pm and 3:30pm. Those who had the 2pm and 3pm did not have any break after the tour to prepare. Walk into the day ready to interview. 4pm we regrouped with Dr Kalloway and Ms Murphy to answer questions. They had water and soda and snacks for us as we filled out the evaluations. Everything is pretty relaxed and organized. Lots of opportunities to talk with current med students and other interviewees. I went to the social the night before. It was fun. I stayed late. At the social, there was a large variety of dress. At the interview day, everyone wore a suit besides me. Mostly dark colors with the girls wearing brightly colored blouses underneath. More pant suits than skirts. Most had their hair tied back. Only about 3 or 4 girls with their hair down. Like me, Dr. Kalloway wore a 3 piece outfit that wasn't a suit. Most of the interviewees were from the big name Texas Schools and the most prestigious schools around the country. I met a lot of fellow Longhorns. Lot of non-trads. Variety of ages. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That it is so difficult to commute to this school. The housing situation could be difficult. Student housing seems good, if that works for your situation." More from this Member | Report Response

"In MHMP building the different sets elevators go up to different sets of floors. Don't just hop into an elevator if you are running late. by the way, we finished the tour of the school with 5 min to get to interview and hit bathroom. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax- it is not that hard." More from this Member | Report Response

"Which parking garage was the correct one! " More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would not be scary at all. It was a very relaxed process and so there was no need to fret beforehand. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interview did not need much preparation, they were honestly just conversations between myself and the faculty members." More from this Member | Report Response

"The travel time; it took 1.5 hours for a normally 20-30 minute ride. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That interviewers can ask controversial questions, and that what kinda suit, shirt, or tie, you wear seems not to matter at all. That they won't really ask you about anything in your app, but really want to see how you handle stress or pointed questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would be so laid back and easy to handle. There's no reason to stress out about this interview, just be aware of your file and have answers to the typical "Why do you want to be a doctor?" questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"dunno I feel I prepared well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring an umbrella!! If you have an interview in another building and it is raining outside, you'll get wet." More from this Member | Report Response

"UT Houston really really really wants to attract med school students. They are SO nice. The atmosphere is GREAT, and the admissions dean is SO affectionate." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviews were so relaxed. It wasn't stressful at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"there's this 80ish old-school-medical-establishment type who I think just likes for mess with with his (female?) interviewees. I think he's just amusing himself and seeing how you handle it, but I got the most inappropriate questions! it wound up being a great, engaging conversation, if somewhat of a debate, but if I hadn't had a sense of humor... I can't believe this man hasn't gotten sued." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing....it is wise to find your way there the night before though (worked great for me)" More from this Member | Report Response

"don't place the parking or validation ticket next to a cell phone because the magnetic strip will get jacked up and it won't work at the end of the day when you are in a rush to get out of houston...you will have to call an attendent and they take about 10 minutes to get to you...."

"how to get to the parking garage!" More from this Member | Report Response

"10% maximum limit on out of state students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The community that UT Houston has is amazing. They were very supportive. Even current students came up to me on the tour to ask how I was doing and would almost force me to ask questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"There curriculum is very old school, but their schedule eases up some after the first semester." More from this Member | Report Response

"That you have to do your parking validation at this little machine thingy before approaching the gate.. I think alot of ppl had that problem" More from this Member | Report Response

"That we could have brought sneakers to change into during our tour!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just what a fanastic school it was. I kinda scrimped on my preparation so I think I didn't do as well as I could have. Don't underestimate this school!! It is fantastic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, maybe bring something to keep you cool on the tours outside. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview, so I wish I'd brushed up on my ENTIRE application ahead of time—not just the narrative sections." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing; everything went pretty smoothly..." More from this Member | Report Response

"???" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of construction around the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"where the damn entrance was" More from this Member | Report Response

"hurricane rita made everyone's schedule off, and therefore everyone was kind of stand-offish" More from this Member | Report Response

"That UT-H, Baylor, and MD Anderson are actually all apart of this one HUGE block of medical centers." More from this Member | Report Response

"How big the Texas Medical Center really is!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the Texas Medical Center hasn't had a day without construction somewhere on it's grounds for nearly 20 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"You really shoud give yourself about 20 minutes to park and find the place (there's a lot of construciton going on)." More from this Member | Report Response

"that i would have hours of waiting around with nothing to do" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"eat lunch ahead of time (the food is inedible); that i wouldn't get to see their famous gross anatomy lab" More from this Member | Report Response

"shouldn't have wasted my/their time and money." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Texas Medical Center. It was very important to them that I was from Houston." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have known more about the school. Also I was intervied by a PH.D. and M.D., the PH.D. really did not know much about the school he was only involved with interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"The med students would not be able to do the pre-event metting or the tours (cuz of tests). The students are friendly. Get there before 7:45am!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interviews would be on opposite ends of the campus. I was literally running from one to the other." More from this Member | Report Response

"wear comfortable shoes!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking...parking...parking. It cost me $20 to park overnight thursday, and another $10 to park the next day. Neither of which was very convenient and still required a lot of walking. If possible look up the routes for the metro rail (sort of like a subway) which lets out right in front of the medical school, or just hail a cab." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you are lost do not follow just anyone in a suit. There are tons of others there interviewing for other stuff. =) It is easy to get lost, though most people can help you find your way. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking is lousy...but I already knew that!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had prepared questions to ask the interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ladies, bring comfortable shoes for tours, even if they look funny with your interview attire! Besides, no one on the tour is going to influence whether you get in or not.

"how to get from the parking garage to the med school. Go out of the garage on the ground floor and walk southwest (probably the way you drove in) toward the long brown building (Herman hospital will be on your right). If that just confused you (it did me) then ask someone for directions (just like i did)." More from this Member | Report Response

"that I would be done by 12:00pm and I told my ride to not pick me up until 5:00pm" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wished I had prepared a broader range of questions suitable for interviewers who have varying experiences with teaching and research." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Long drive into the medical center... bad Houston traffic... again parking and cost of living is a bitch if you are planning to attend UTH" More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer is MD one is PhD, one of those is on the admissions board." More from this Member | Report Response

"parking 9 bucksssss" More from this Member | Report Response

"That so few people would show up to the night before social." More from this Member | Report Response

"Eat a LOT before you go. They offer muffins and juice for breakfast but it didn't hold me over and I was trying to be too cautious with the fajita lunch they served. Be prepared for traffic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Go to Two Rows (a social the night before). It really helped ease my nerves." More from this Member | Report Response

"My second interviewer was on the admissions board and I would have liked to work him a little harder. One interviewer had read my file and asked many questions in reference to my essay and work history. The other had only glanced at my profile." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area of town where my hotel was (which turned out to be smack in the middle of downtown Houston, not very nice)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of Texas Medical Center. It's huge and can be hard to find your way around. There are plenty of helpful people, however." More from this Member | Report Response

"To relax. Everyone at this school is very friendly. They are much more concerned about getting to know you as a person than they are finding out where you might be weak as a doctor (they make no attempts to expose you). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Staying with a student host was a wonderful experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The classes are all day long, with lecture in the morning and labs all afternoon." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't stress about this interview...it is really low key and they work hard to sell you on their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you're running late in the morning, don't wolf down a big meal. I almost threw up during the orientation. And the dean wasn't that bad of a speaker either. Some people only had one interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"houston is hot, very hot." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they are honestly very casual and there is no need to stress. I spent a lot of time thinking up answers to hypothetical questions... it was a complete waste of time. Best advice I can think of is to relax and not worry about the interview at UT Houston" More from this Member | Report Response

"...." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known how big the school was and what types of programs they have to offer." More from this Member | Report Response

"They had a solid IM sports program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that they have PBL (problem based learning). I would have wanted to find out more about it ahead of time. It actually wasn't that big of a deal though, because it was explained to me in detail at some point in the day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You don't really have time for all of the tours, so take the ones that you're interested in as soon as you can." More from this Member | Report Response

"Impressive medical center, best I have ever seen." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most interviewers just want to know about you as a person and what motivates you to become a doctor. Intense preparation is not really necessary at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. The faculty was very informative, so even things I did not know before I got to UT, I learned during the faculty speeches." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really- bring comfortable shoes if you plan on doing the tours, and an umbrella just in case- it rained quite a bit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Its connections with various medical hospitals and its ongoing research projects at MD Anderson. I wish I could have explored this opportunity earlier" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing that I can think of..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't knock on the door if it is your turn to be interviewed. Wait outside. I did and interupted the interview before mine. The interviewer was really nice so it didn't matter but yours might not be." More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school building and map they give you is a little bit confusing, so make sure you get there ahead of time in case you get lost. I got lost but thankfully I was there 15 minutes early so I could ask for directions. I kept getting lost on the way to my interviews but someone always was willing to help me. It was a nice way to get to know people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring another comfortable pair of shoes - some girls were walking around with suits and tennis shoes while we were touring and no one cared because it's only the students who give the tour and they're really relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"use discretion in which tours you take--don't take the md anderson tour before an interview b/c you will sweat and feel really gross" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great opportunities for housing." More from this Member | Report Response

"In your field of interest (i.e. neurology), look up some of the faculty's research interests at UTH. It is likely that one of your interviewers will be a Ph.D. and the other an M.D. Apparently, I was informed that one interviewer sits on the admissions panel and the other is just to find out some additional background info on you (they do not tell you which they are).

"You will be in awe when they take you on top of Hermann Children's helipad. Super awesome experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"My preconceived notions of Houston (negative) were forgotten about after interviewing here. The school, medical center, and students/faculty were all amazing. Countless opportunities as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"great program by the admissions committee" More from this Member | Report Response

"BRING FLATS. I did, and it was the best decision I ever made. You do a LOT of walking. Also, since interviewing there, I have heard a lot of people say it's cutthroat/competitive there. I didn't get that at all, and in fact students said that the opposite was true. (Though I suppose they would have to, during a tour.) Just, take those criticisms with a grain of salt?

It seems like everyone has a good experience in their interviews which was nice but at the same time, I wish I had more a barometer of how I did (just cause I had two good interviews- I laughed a lot in both) I still feel like I have NO IDEA if I have a chance getting in.

"I definitely recommend staying with a student host. I stayed with an MS3. I stayed up talking to her for about 2 hours. I felt like I had the insiders perspective when I went on Friday. Going the day before helped me to relax and to get a good feel for the real medical student life. Interview: It seemed like both interviewers had looked through my application and were trying to get to know me more. The first one almost seemed like he was verifying what I wrote down. The second was fun to talk to. I guess that is why you interview with you 2 people. Ms Murphy said at lunch that they look at who interviews you and if you get a bad review they often will just throw it out when they present you to the admissions committee. I guess she anticipated my experience when I said who I was interviewing with. They did not ask me any ethical questions or questions related to anything besides me or my application. I felt like I was the one directing the conversation and could say what I wanted to. I did hear about a couple people being asked basic Texas History (who was the first president: Sam Houston, etc). Good luck. " More from this Member | Report Response

She told me tons about the school and she helped get me to the right place the next morning. You can have either morning or afternoon interviews, just depends on what group you get.

I had read over and over in the Baylor view book about how wonderful the Medical Center is, but the student resources for UT-H look incredible. The lunch was spectacular. We actually had fajitas (other schools should take note!). My two interviews were really laid back, but I had trouble understanding my first interviewer's thick hebrew accent!

"good experience with interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviews were back-to-back, and since they were my first ones, I was more nervous than I should have been. The first was with a pediatric emergency medicine doctor. She had a moderate accent which I had to parse at first; this also increased my nervousness. But she was very calm and sweet. She was mainly interested in my motivation to study medicine and how my extracurricular interests complemented my studies. By the end it was very much a conversation: we talked about the need for empathy but not sympathy for a patient, how to deal with terminal patients, and cultural factors of healthcare. She ignored her secretaries knocking for five minutes in order to finish up the conversation. The second interviewer was a Ph.D. specializing in elctron microscopy. I went arrived early, he invited me in, then took a few minutes to type a brief email—fingertapping with only his index digit! Combined with his age (early 70's, I'd guess) and his crusty surroundings, I began to get some neagtive vibes. These were only increased when he finally turned around, picked up my app (obviously for the first time ever), scribbled some notes, and then asked, "So tell me about your extracurriculars—starting in freshmen year." He aura seemed displeased that I hadn't done any research. However, I took it upon myself to improve the situation and win him over. After a few minutes of me fumbling to remember the exact chronology of some of my extracurriculars and explaining some light periods in them due to very busy courseloads, things got rolling. He was very surprised and interested in my language background and my readings in Russian literature (which also form the basis of my undergraduate thesis). I think he was very impressed that I was a humanist who still had a very strong love of science beyond the core requirements. Things went really well from this point on. I had a great conversation with him for 90 minutes, by the end of which he was having me read some research grants and was showing me Powerpoints of his work (including some really awesome images of the PDC that were in my biochemistry text!). I was really flattered when he told me that he'd never had an interviewee like me in fourteen years and gave me advice about picking between schools!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews were one-on-one. The first one was a bit more intense in the sense that my interviewer asked a lot more questions and our encounter was more engaging; the second interview was a bit more laid back and it kept getting interrupted but that wasn't really an issue; we talked about my college experience more vs. my qualities or attributes to becoming an MD; both interviewers were friendly and were never condescending or negatively putting me on the stop if you will; " More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was an MD, a very amiable pediatrician who was so personable you couldn't possibly be intimidated by her. We have a very casual conversation beginning with where she practiced and then onto questions regarding my volunteer experiences. She spent 1/3 of the interview giving me a "sales pitch" for UT Houston and also allowed time for me to ask her questions I had which was helpful. The first interview lasted 25 minutes. The second interview was with a PhD in pathologies and lab and was different. Though his style came off as more abrasive and was drastically different from the first it was a pleasant experience as well. He wanted more of a timeline of my college experience and asked me some questins regarding the content of my personal statement. We then discussed some of the research he is working on in the lab and even discussed some of his health issues. The second interview lasted 45 minutes. All in all the interview epxerience was pretty smooth and a pleasant exprerience. Certainly not as nerve wracking as I had expected! " More from this Member | Report Response

The Hospital tour was nice, we saw an actual helicopter landing and a guy get rushed to the ER. The interviews were conversational and low-pressure, and if you have good credentials they will immediately shift to selling their school to you. My first interviewer was a community relations guy who gave me a book he wrote detailing the history of UT-H and the Medical Center...not a bad read if you're bored.

"The day started at 7:45 AM. Dr. Gunn, the Dean of Admissions, was very unimpressive. He was rude to my dad (even though the invitation said spouses and family were allowed) and basically asked him to leave. His presentation wasn't any better. He constantly rambled about all sorts of random issues and never really talked about the school very much. It seems that A&M people (or at least the 3 I met) sometimes are stuck with only one interview: so, the moral of the story is make your interview count, b/c it's ur only chance. I left the TMC around 11 AM, but some others had to stay until 5 PM. A student panel also came and talked in the morning, and they were very informative and helpful. Like I said earlier, b/c I had only one interview, and b/c they said you can leave as soon as u finish your interviews, I left at 11 AM and missed the tours and all the other things they had scheduled for later in the day. I had some engagements I had to attend to, but I guess they might be worth your time if you want to stay. I've already seen the medical center as part of a summer program, so nothing was that new to me. My 1 interview was kind of interesting. Dr. Covinsky was a kind of eccentric guy. He even called himself that. Since this was my only interview at UT-H, I really wanted to make a lasting impression on him. He asked me about some of the service I had done in India and what I had learned from it. He then asked me one thing that wasn't on my application that I wanted to tell him about, and I talked about my lifelong tennis career. The rest of the interview was spent with he and I having a long conversation about Baylor and UT-H and the differences between the two schools, as well as his opinions of UT-Houston. He had a couple of interruptions with pathology samples he needed to take care of, but the wholet thing was very conversational and I came away from it knowing he probably didn't get to know so much about my passion for medicine, but he got to know what I do outside of school so I thought that was significant.

Then lunch was "interesting," chicken fried steak and potatoes (needed caffene for my last interview after that).

"Like others have said, the day was really disorganized with interviews going on throughout the day and at least 3 tours going on at the same time. Since most of the tours are only offered once, there is absolutely no way that you can go on all of them. Instead, once your interview(s) is(are) over, you suffer downtime until the next one begins. Not a whole lot of students were anywhere to be seen (on a Friday) and so I didn't get a lot of chances to ask them questions about the school. My particular interviewer seemed to be more interested in my social and family life rather than my academics and I guess I never felt that either of those fields were really appropriate things for me to talk about during an interview for medical school, so I wasn't prepared with say, a tally of friends and a list detailing how often I see them."

No questions on healthcare reform, stem cell research, etc. I absolutely love the UTH facilities, teaching method, and integration of sprituality into the curriculum. Everything is available."

"I had an excellent experience. It was my first interview and I was very nervous but that all disappeared within minutes. The administration, facutly and students are incredibly friendly and very caring. I had very relaxed interviews with nothing tough." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low stress level! As everyone else is saying, it was conversational and less of an interrogation, although some of my fellow interviewees had different experiences..." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer focused more on my race and when my parents immigrated here as opposed to me. I left that interview really annoyed. The second interviewer was much better. She was so nice and easy to talk to." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started with a BORING talk by the dean of admissions Dr. Gunn. He tried to be interesting, but just seemed unenthusiastic. UT Houston's interview day is not very organized, and like the previous feedback stated, it's hard to make all the tours because of your interviews. They scheduled my two interviews about 6 hours apart, which pissed me off (lot of downtime). The speech by this OB/GYN faculty member during lunch was pretty inspiring. The Texas Medical Center is amazing and UTH's facilities are great (Hermann, MD Anderson, Texas Heart Institute). I even got to view a bypass surgery on the tour of THI (really cool). The night before social was really cool...med students outnumbered interviewees by 3:1. Overall it was a pretty good day despite the lack of organization on their part. They tried."

"I went in thinking it was just a 'practice' interview, but I had a really great time, and was VERY impressed by the TMC and UT-Houston facilities (the latter of which have been recently renovated.) Though I was really against going here before I visited, I might rank it as #1 or 2 now." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a good experience and I felt like Houston would be a good fit. The students seemed to get along and the speaker at lunchtime was an alumni of the med school and he seemed to be an enjoyable person to be around." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was great! I really enjoyed UTH. I only had one interviewer that day. Around lunchtime I was told that my second interviewer had an emergency and that they did not have any back-up interviewers. She proceeded to tell me that the first one was on the admissions committee and that I was free to go for the day or go on additional tours. It was a relief, but at the same time I wanted another chance to say all the things I forgot to mention in the first interview. Also, I would highly recommend staying with a med student host and going to the night before social. Both were fun and very insightful. No chicken-fried steak this time. We had some kind of baked lemon chicken and some yummy cookies." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed with one PhD and one MD. The PhD was Dr. Pate from the dental branch for some reason and he basically asked me very standard questions. By the end of the interview I did not feel like he had gotten to know ME that much but I had answered his questions. The second one was GREAT. Dr. Potts, the assistant dean of surgery and he was very nice. We talked about baseball and fencing and my future plans in medicine. I actually felt like I connected with the second guy much better. Overall the interviews went really well." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the whole experience. The school seemed laid-back which goes well with my own personality. Everybody I interacted (students, docs, and administrators alike) were all excellent ambassadors of their school. I was pleasantly surprised that my interviewer was in my sub-specialty of interest. She gave me a lot of great advice and insight. She also put me at ease by openly expressing her support of me. I believe she could be a great mentor for me in the future. My interview experience has bumped this school up on my list!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really strange because the first interviewer was so bad and the second one was so good. I didn't much care for the dean, he seemed to just tell us all that we'd make bad doctors. The students seem really laid back, they were pretty cool. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview went flawlessly. The interviewer seemed very interested in me and my experiences. The second interviewer literally asked every question you can find on SDN. He didn't ask me at all about my previous research experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the day was disorganized and unnecessarily long. It starts early and students have interviews throughout the day. Some were done by lunch, some had one in the morning and another late in the afternoon. Some of the tours weren't even available when they said they would be. Some of the previous feedback entries talked about an interviewer who said, "If you can tell me what this is (some kind of stone), you'll get into medical school." Well, it's true...when the doctor came to speak to us about the admissions process, he said that he just likes to shock people and see their reactions. He seemed like a fun guy to interview with." More from this Member | Report Response

"both interviewers were a bit, say, nonpersonable. The first one lasted 17 minutes, the second was better and a bit longer. Fairly standard questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Overall good impression of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I attended the pre-interview social the night before which acquainted me with some of the current students and prepared me for what was going to take place the next day. It was also nice to see familiar faces the next morning amongst all the anxiety. We were greeted by many happy & smiling faces & a nice continental breakfast @ 7:45am sharp. This was followed by an extraordinary speech by the Dean of Admissions. Afterward, there were a variety of tours to choose from throughout the day which had to be carefully selected so as not to miss your assigned interview times. I had an 11am interview and a 3pm interview. My first interviewer (a surgeon) got caught in surgery at the time of my interview so her colleague in the same office ended up interviewing me. She was very kind & comforting and since she had not seen any information regarding my background the interview was conducted in a very informal get-to-know you style. Afterward I returned to the main hall for lunch and more speeches. The second interviewer was a PhD and was much more formal and a bit more intimidating, but nonetheless nice & informative. My second interview seemed a little non-typical too. She would ask questions, but allow very little time for thorough answers (she would give me approx 20-30 seconds). Then she would quickly shift to another thought/question which may or may not have correlated with the previous thought/question. She also went through each basic science course listed as part of the 1st & 2nd year med students' curriculum and asked which classes I had any background in from my undergraduate studies. Towards the end of my interview she presented me with a folder which contained summer preceptorship & research opportunities for 1st year med students. Towards the end of the day, I made some quiet-time and wrote out thank you cards for each of my interviewers & delivered them to their secretaries. At this time, I also completed a survey provided in the interviewee packet. The day concluded around 5pm." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are normal kind people. The faculty seem jaded and upset by the administration. The dean of admissions is a relic from the old days (complete jack-**s)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very disapointing" More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview was pretty short (about 25 minutes); however, the interviewer did warn me at the beginning that she tended to conduct short interviews. Second interview was longer (almost 1.5 hours) but i was basically just conversing with the interviewer the whole time. Almost all of the questions I was asked were based on my personal statement and experiences listed in my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"Average...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall is was a great experience. Not too stressful! Go to the mixer the night before, you really get a feel for the students' perspectives of the school from that - invaluable because we'll be in their shoes soon hopefully. Also staying with a med student for the night was incredibly helpful. Go on the tours, the facilities are impressive! One interviewer was very relaxed, very conversational in her approach. The other was more formal, but not grilling. Neither my interviewers nor the other applicant's interviewers discussed were "out to trap or intimidate" us. ON the whole it has become my first choice of Texas schools. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Go to San Antonio but dont come here" More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole process was very stress-free. The interviewers I got were both very friendly. Besides the question asked above, the interviews were very easy. They seemed to be more interested in making small talk and getting to know me than with any of the research or clinical experiences I have had." More from this Member | Report Response

"The social dinner was a nice touch to meet a few students before the big day. The med students that showed up were easily approachable but I thought it was more beneficial to meet the other applicants. As one student put it, these would be the people with whom I would potentially be spending the next 4 years of my life. There was a lot of time for social interaction during interview day as well. I was a little uninmpressed by the cavalier attitude from some of the students and faculty I met. They seemed to lack focus and bragged about sleeping in all day only to watch their classes later that night while having a beer or three. My first interviewer was very dry and only asked questions directly from my application. In fact, he was reading it during the interview and would just ask questions as he went along in the exact order I had listed them on the app. My second interviewer was awesome. She is a PhD in surgery and ended my day on a positive note. Her questions weren't exactly difficult, but I at least felt like she learned something about me not evident on from the piece of paper in front of her. If I decide to go to UT-Houston it would be mainly for the Texas Medical Center, some of the unique programs offered, and the focus on clinical care." More from this Member | Report Response

"this was my first interview and it was very low-key" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very unimpressed by my interviewers' questions. I have significant research experience including a publication in a major journal, but neither interviewer asked for details on that. I also discuss health care policy at length in my application, but one of my interviewers didn't even know enough about current politics to have a discussion with me! Overall a very disillusioning process, but hopefully good practice for future interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't go to the night before mixer, which was at some bar. I heard from a friend that the med students were totally drunk while the premeds were all uptight and trying to be good. The interview day began early at 7:45, which was kind of bad, although they provide coffee, juice, and muffins (they were HUGE). The dean gave a nice motivational speech, and it probably would have been more interesting had it not been so long and so early in the morning. Interview times were scattered through the day and often overlapped with tours. I only got to go on 10 min of the med school tour because I had an interview. Also, the hospital tours were cancelled because of rain. The interview was partially open file; they only had my personal statement, list of courses, GPA, and MCAT, nothing else, but that's the important stuff. I had one physician and one PhD interviewer. THey were both really nice but the PhD seemed more conversational. I talked with him for over an hour. The area around the Texas Medical Center isn't too busy, and seems like a liveable area. Didn't get to see the gym but apparently it's right across the street from student housing. The medical students seemed glad that they chose Houston and they all said it was their first choice. Problem based learning seems helpful in honing diagnostic skills also. One med student said that they tape all the lectures and put them on the internet so that you can watch live or later on. Pretty nice school, will rank it first." More from this Member | Report Response

"Basically everyone was very nice, the school was renovating the first floor. UTH seems very laid back but also wants to produce competent, caring doctors. The dean's speech was cool also." More from this Member | Report Response

"UT Houston is a top notch medical shool with a long history. They matriculate a large class of about 200, but interview about 1200. The med center has a premier Heart Institute, Children's Hospital and level 1 trauma center. The facilities looked pretty good, the students seemed genuine and friendly, as did the faculty. Both of my interviews were fairly laid back. There were still a handful of candidates there at about 4pm when I left, so it is a long day." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a wonderful first interview experience. It has given me confidence to go into my next interview, so that I don't break out in hives again! (Yes, it happened and my interviewer commented on it.) Just to clarify, only one of my interviews was over an hour, the other was 35 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"It rained the day of the interview, so bring an umbrella along. There are many tours given throughout the day, and they do involve outdoor walking. Going to Two Rows the night before is also invaluable - you get to meet lots of students and fellow interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seemed really great, and everyone who goes there seems to really enjoy being there. They are really family oriented, which is good if you are married or whatever, and the professors seem like they are very willing to be there for you and to provide you with further opportunities to learn if you just ask." More from this Member | Report Response

"One thing to know when interviewing here, the faculty will use your profile to take your questions from. I had several direct questions on my educational background. Also, faculty are only given your essay and profile page to look at (the one you get a copy of from TMDSAS). They do not see evaluations or additional information. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a great school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Gunn is a motivational, inspiring admissions chair. His rousing speech easily cleared any doubts that I had about pursuing medicine. UT Houston is doing a lot of construction, but they promise the bulk of it will be done by late next year. Stay with a student for the best experience..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good overall. Just a note... I don't think the interviewers have the full file. I believe they just have GPA, MCAT and a couple of lines from essay. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview was short- like 20minutes which kind of freaked me out but my second interview was 35min. Both interviewers asked standard questions. The lunch was really good- they give you a real hot meal no sandwiches. lots of time to talk to and interact with current medical students.they also had a great info session on having a family and being a doctor which was great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed interviewing at UT Houston. The students and faculty were generally nice and excited to speak to the interviewees.

More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful school, I really enjoyed my stay." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall good. They have limited tours one or two of which are likely to conflict with your interview. The interviewers are relaxed as are the students. Everyone I met seemed to genuinely like it there. I also went on a tour where we saw the Helipad, which was cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"I left with a much better impression than I started with. I was impressed with all the facilities (hospitals, clinics, etc.) but wonder if it would be too large for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"A very positive experience, my top choice as of right now. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewed was a cross between a stoner and a cheap zombie from the Thriller video. He hadn't read my file and was clearly not really interested in conducting an interview from the get-go. All of his questions were very bland and could easily have been answered by reading my file. Bleh. Hopefully that was just the interviewer and not representative of the school - my second interviewer was great, very conversational. The students were very helpful, though I got a feeling of a whole lot of Texas A&M-ness, which may or may not be a detractor for you. Overall, it was a pleasant day, and the message from the Dean that started the day was very inspirational - they are indeed serious about their patient-care there, so I think it may be a better place for clinical medicine than others."

"Laid back interview, the students seem to get along great although they act much more professional than in other schools I had been to. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just be yourself and everything will be fine. Most students had good interviews. I was asked the ethical question above probably because that interviewer was a Ph.D in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a very good experience. I was only stressed a lot because it was my first interview. My 2nd interviewer rushed me a little because he had a patient waiting for him, but I was very impressed and would love to attend UT Houston." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall- a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my interview experience. I could not wish for a better first interview. Keep your confidence level high and be affable during the entire process. UT Houston has many more postives than I previously thought. Its non-competitive atmosphere makes this school attractive" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was wonderful. i have much more respect for the school now and it is definately on the top of my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was nice. I was not put on the spot by the itnerviewers, and rather it felt more like a friendly chat than an inquisition I was expecting. When I expressed interested in clinical research, both of my interviewers discussed the opportunities for that and encouranged me, rather than ask me why I didn't just get a PhD then."

"Overall, a great experience for a first interview. They really make you feel at home. And relax, it's so low stress! They even say they're not out to rattle you like some other schools. They're just looking for who's a good fit. Also, I get the impression that they are not focused on the numbers game...ECs are more focused upon." More from this Member | Report Response

"I went to the night-before outing at Two Rows on Thursday. That was really fun. I ended up being rejected from UTH, and I found out that I scored poorly on my interviews even though they seemed fine to me.
