What are your general comments?

"UT Houston is a top notch medical shool with a long history. They matriculate a large class of about 200, but interview about 1200. The med center has a premier Heart Institute, Children's Hospital and level 1 trauma center. The facilities looked pretty good, the students seemed genuine and friendly, as did the faculty. Both of my interviews were fairly laid back. There were still a handful of candidates there at about 4pm when I left, so it is a long day." Report Response
