What are your general comments?

"My interviews went way past the allotted time of 30 minutes. The conversations just flowed. Always have at least two questions to ask. The interviewers have a checklist that they use to compare one student from the next. After the interviews, all of the interviewers talk before the admissions committee and pitch each candidate. Texas Tech is a good school that emphasizes in clinical training. For the first two years of basic sciences you learn in Lubbock (the brand new lecture halls open next month). For your last two years, you can choose between Lubbock, Amarillo, and El Paso. They explained the split as a benefit because it allows you to have a smaller class size=more hands on experience. Lubbock isn't the most amazing city, but how much time will you actually have to play anyways???" Report Response
