How did you prepare for the interview?

"Had an answer (not memorized) ready for any possible question or situation by compiling huge list of questions ever asked. WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY OVERPREPARED. You really need not do this, though there are just some you should expect. Know why you chose your major if it isn't the typical science. =)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing and people in the area are helpful. The clinical opportunities there are endless and it seems a great place to balance a social life with academics. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Houston is HOT. Goodness, I came from Dallas where it was a little breezy so I brought with me a very light jacket. Stepping out in Houston I looked like a freak! I had no idea there was such a weather difference. I was sweating walking on the different tours outside. Also, traffic is horrendous, but that is to be expected in any big city downtown area. I got lost trying to find the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you are lost do not follow just anyone in a suit. There are tons of others there interviewing for other stuff. =) It is easy to get lost, though most people can help you find your way. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I came in with extreme reservations about this school, thinking I had absolutely no chance of getting in b/c of my major, which they list on their website is not looked upon favorably. Fortunately, my interviewer did not feel the same way - she was just awesome and told me she would give a high recommendation to the admissions committee. It is so important to be yourself. If you want this badly enough and are motivated by the right reasons, they can tell. Also, the student tours were nice - try and get a small one b/c you have more one-on-one and opportunities to ask questions and find out about life there. " Report Response
