What are your general comments?

"Overall is was a great experience. Not too stressful! Go to the mixer the night before, you really get a feel for the students' perspectives of the school from that - invaluable because we'll be in their shoes soon hopefully. Also staying with a med student for the night was incredibly helpful. Go on the tours, the facilities are impressive! One interviewer was very relaxed, very conversational in her approach. The other was more formal, but not grilling. Neither my interviewers nor the other applicant's interviewers discussed were "out to trap or intimidate" us. ON the whole it has become my first choice of Texas schools. " Report Response
