What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't really get to talk with many students, only residents. And for those who don't like small towns, Lubbock may not suit them. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Things were running a half-hour late, but all in all, the day was laid-back and enjoyable. Even though Lubbock is a small town, the hospital has a level-one trauma center and deals with patients from Dallas to Albequerque. Just from observing the students, they seems to be really cooperative and friendly. The school itself is very nice and aesthetically-pleasing. One of my interviewers is a cardio surgeon that worked under Dr. Debakke in Houston, so it seems good doctors are drawn to Lubbock in order to raise a family. They are very community-service oriented and the faculty (at least the ones who interviewed me) seemed to be excellent teachers. One thing is 3rd and 4th-years do rotations in El Paso, Odessa, Lubbock, or one other city. " Report Response
