What impressed you positively?

"The students were definitely approachable. No competition here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Almost all of the students come from UT schools or A&M. They almost all end up in TX for residency. (I am a resident but go to school out of state and don't necessarily want to stay in TX for the rest of my life.) Also the facilities are in such a state of disrepair that it was sad. The "gym" is not impressive at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That out of at least 50 interviewees that day, I would be one of only 3 who attend college outside Texas." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very unimpressed by my interviewers' questions. I have significant research experience including a publication in a major journal, but neither interviewer asked for details on that. I also discuss health care policy at length in my application, but one of my interviewers didn't even know enough about current politics to have a discussion with me! Overall a very disillusioning process, but hopefully good practice for future interviews." Report Response
