What are your general comments?

"The day was well-organized and planned. Other schools schedule tours of their facilities but, if they occur while you're interviewing, you're outta luck. TAMU has intermittent tours so everyone can go on all the tours. The drive to Temple took about 1.5 hours and the heat was unbearable in a suit. The tours at Scott&White were helpful (S&W is the only level 1 facility in central TX, the nearest one being Houston!!!). The VA Hospital was very nice as well. I was very impressed with the facilities both in College Station and Temple, and with the small size of the class. The M3s and M4s seemed very well prepared for residency, due to the individual attention. All the faculty know all the students...wow! Overall it was a great but extremely tiring day."
