At the school
"why texas? (i am from the east-coast)"
"I spent a summer in Dallas, so my interviewers asked about it."
"Why do you want to come to Texas?"
"read interview feedback reports, read about school"
"the texas medical center is ENORMOUS and beautiful/new. there is every kind of specialty and patient population represented. students were very open and friendly."
"as with most texas destinations, a car would be nearly essential."
"nothing. the students gave a presentation on baylor curriculum, life in houston, and also the "10 months free" concept where if you plan your schedule a certain way, you could have several weeks of a break. also, they finish basic sciences in 1.5 years and the boards are not required to begin clinical rotations."
"it was fun! about 40 students interview each session, and there is plenty of downtime to mingle with other students and applicants. don't miss the student-applicant gathering in the evening."
