What impressed you positively?

"Let's say where do I begin... They have just installed a computerized anatomy lab where each group has a computer next to their cadaver. Instead of messing up your textbook, all the dissecting and other information is right there on the computer. This year, they are going to sale the program to the students (small fee) so that they can study at home without feeling the need to come in on weekends to the lab. The just also installed a new simulation lab with two simulators. I was very impressed with how medical students will be able to practice on these devices under different situations. The school had a completely friendly atmosphere. Everyone knew everyone else. I ran into three students while walking to my interviews, and all three went out of their way and told me good luck and made small talk. Lunch… I thought it was really nice how they allowed us to choose what we wanted off the menu from Four Star Coffee. They placed the order ahead of time, so it was ready as soon as we arrived. The students who lead the tour were really genuine and seemed to enjoy taking us to lunch and giving us a tour of the facilities. What also was impressive was while they were taking us around they ran into like three professors who knew them personally, and also spoke to our group and asked how we were doing. My interviewers were great. I think my first one he tried to ask questions already on the interview feedback site. However, once the interview started rolling, it became laid back, and I was really impressed with my interviewer and how easy it was to talk to him. My second interviewer was great also. She was really easy to talk to and seemed really interested in my application. Parking was close and free!!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviews were staggered for the group so we all had free time at different times. So, some people began interviews in the morning, and some in the afternoon. It was the luck of the draw how early you had to come in that morning." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Even though it is a smaller campus, be prepared for a lot of walking!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Excellent... Anyone who didn't apply to TCOM in Texas should think again, because it is a great school with people (faculty & students) who seem to really care and want you to consider going to school there. " Report Response
