"I like the campus, its small, the buildings are nice, students are nice. I like that out-of-staters can get in-state tuition (although its not exactly automatic like with Southwestern). I like PBL schools. They have extensive standardized patient program. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of the interviewers, who was very nice, spent all but 5 minutes just telling me about the history of Galveston and the school, etc. Now to the negative part; he told me straight up, matter of factly, that if I go to UTMB I won't score as high on my boards as if I were to go to Dallas. But I don't know. I'm a 34/4.0 and I intend to study hard there and do very well. I'm going there (I picked it first on the match & got in) but I'm a little worried that I will have to drive nearly an hour to get to the nearest major shopping mall. I'll deal with it when I get there, I don't shop much anyway. " Report Response
