At the school
"What's the greatest problem with healthcare today?"
"Which specialty? Why?"
"Did you have any academic difficulties in college and how did you overcome them?"
"How can the US strike a balance between funding for academic research versus funding for socialized healthcare programs such as medicare?"
"See above. I blanked for a few seconds."
"Read interview feedback, school website, got to the school a day early and asked my student host tons of questions."
"My student host was incredibly kind and helpful, and she's pretty representative of most Baylor students. IMO, Baylor's greatest strength is the quality of the student body; they are very accomplished, yet still down to earth. The same was true of my fellow interviewees."
"The humidity. I felt like I was melting whenever I walked outside."
"I learned the day before my interview that half the interviewees are accepted. That takes some of the edge off."
"*Official Interview Day doesn't start until 12pm so if you stay with a student host, they can take you to class with them in the morning. *There's a welcome from Dr. Johnson and a member of the admin staff, Ms. Miller-Wasik *Break off for interviews *Regroup at around 4pm, go for clinical tour *Regroup at 5pm, eat dinner (sandwiches), learn about the curriculum, student panel talks, hilarious slide show on Life in Houston. *7pm interviewees and students head on over to Two Rows to eat, drink, and be merry. Basically, if you interview at Baylor, it's a real treat."
