"How are your co-workers balancing their practice and research, and how would you do the same?"
"Why MD and not MD/PhD?"
"How do you think your upbringing will affect your future as a doctor?"
"Do you take more after your father or your mother?"
"What is your current research project and what outcomes do you expect?"
"Re-read AMCAS, read newspaper, SDN"
"Clinical experience in first 3 weeks, 10 months off to do electives or study for the boards. Inexpensive housing. A light rail system is scheduled to be finished next year, I think, which will make getting around much easier."
"Climate. Also, Houston is not the most beautiful city. Not great in primary care."
"It is very easy to find the M112 room (no need to arrive 1 hr early). Also, bring comfortable shoes - there is a lot of walking on the tour. "
"The whole day was very relaxed. We arrived at 12.00 and went through introductions, then the whole process started at 1.00 with interviews. The interviews were very relaxed and conversational - nothing to worry about. When you weren't being interviewed, you had the option of going on a basic science tour, although mine was very quick. More presentations at 4.00 followed by a clinical tour and a student Q&A panel. Baylor sounds and looks like a great school - students are friendly, plenty of resources available, and an amazing tuition."
