What impressed you positively?

"The students were great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I stayed at the Days Inn motel and it was a real dump. Don't stay there!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. The interviews are very friendly and laid back though, so it's hard to evaluate what they thought of you." Report Response
