"what books did you read in your (insert name) class? ...in your (insert other classes)? this was difficult only b/c some classes i had 8 years ago & struggled to remember titles!! ended up describing some books, instead of naming. this could have been better if i had taken 5 minutes to look at my bookshelf before i left home!! (highly recommend looking over old class syllabi.)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"attended houston-area recruiting event." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"surprisingly, everything! classroom building facilities are brand new, bright/clean & state of the art. students looked remarkably well-rested & happy... and also genuine. med library has private rooms w/ individual thermostats & allows food & open till 12. main campus has FABULOUS gym/pool. all main campus stuff open to med students--including sports & theatre events & their classes & library. NO traffic in lubbock, easy parking (compare to nightmare parking in houston--who needs the extra stress in med school?!). seems like the perfect place to be a student (just like my old college town). spring orientation to ease the transition & meet classmates & look for housing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"only 4 black people in last year's class! (even though i'm white) i would prefer my med class to represent my home community (urban), but maybe the class actually represents the west tx community.?? on the up side, i met some black students who seem extremely pleased there. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"chance to move to el paso for years 3-4. beautiful city w/ mountains!! :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"overall, a great experience. the staff was super. students rave about dr larsen (student affairs) & the professors, how everyone places the student at the center of the school. i felt like they were seeking quality *people* & quality *future caregivers*, not just quality gpa's. school is perfectly in line w/ my humanistic vision of medicine. definitely stay w/ a student host, who can tell you all the ins & outs of the program/town."
