What are your general comments?

"UCHSC is a good school that is definately going places. The school is in the middle of changing many things with changes in the curriculm and teaching facilities being the largest and perhaps most time consuming. As for the interviews, THEY GO BY QUICKLY! You are only scheduled to meet for 30 minutes and you don't have much time to ask questions at the end (some interviewers interview 2-3 people so they tend to rush through the interviews with each student). I was lucky to extend my interviews a little longer but that was not the case for everyone else. Be ready to talk about yourself, your desires in medicine, your past experiences, and at LEAST 1 ethical question. For the most part the interviews are very relaxing, just be prepared by looking at this web site and the types of questions the school tends to ask. Go on the tour of the new campus...it will definately impress you. Also, stay with students if you can. They are nice and candid about the medical schools pro's and con's." Report Response
