At the school
"Do you think you'll fit in here?"
"Is there anything that is not on your application that you would like me to know about?"
"What sets you apart from other students?"
"The school is very accommodating. I missed my flight and arrived at campus at 2:30 in the afternoon. I called ahead of time and the admissions staff was able to reschedule my interviews for later in the day. The lectures are videotaped. There are so many opportunities such as advanced tracks in ethics, world health, caring for the underserved, and research (which requires an extra year on campus). There is a wide variety of patients available. You will see everything from gun shot wounds to little old ladies in no apparent distress to dozens of different languages. Baylor even teaches a course in medical Spanish. Also there are tons of dual degree programs -- feel free to get as large of an education as possible."
"Houston is the fourth largest city in the country. Moving to the area can be quite shocking."
"Baylor College of Medicine is NOT affiliated with Baylor University at all! They may have the same name, but don't make the mistake of believing that they are the same."
"The day starts at noon. You'll get lunch, presentations, tours, two interviews, then more tours and presentations, dinner, and finally a meal at Two Rivers Grill. Also, there is a lot of down time to meet other people. Since I spent Friday night in the city, my host and I went downtown to the bars and clubs --- definitely the most fun I've ever had with a host."
