What are your general comments?

"The day started with a BORING talk by the dean of admissions Dr. Gunn. He tried to be interesting, but just seemed unenthusiastic. UT Houston's interview day is not very organized, and like the previous feedback stated, it's hard to make all the tours because of your interviews. They scheduled my two interviews about 6 hours apart, which pissed me off (lot of downtime). The speech by this OB/GYN faculty member during lunch was pretty inspiring. The Texas Medical Center is amazing and UTH's facilities are great (Hermann, MD Anderson, Texas Heart Institute). I even got to view a bypass surgery on the tour of THI (really cool). The night before social was really cool...med students outnumbered interviewees by 3:1. Overall it was a pretty good day despite the lack of organization on their part. They tried." Report Response
