"Climate. Also, Houston is not the most beautiful city. Not great in primary care." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
