What impressed you positively?

"The facilities as many have commented on were quite impressive. Beyond the facilities the faculty and students were very friendly both those participating in the interview day as well as those just doing routine things on campus. I had first year students who were studying for exams wish me luck. The faculty seems to have quite an "open door" policy for the students which was a very impressive point. It also seems that cut-throat nature of competition ends once you get admitted into UT Houston which is nice. The entire ambiance was friendly, warm, and welcoming. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was an MD, a very amiable pediatrician who was so personable you couldn't possibly be intimidated by her. We have a very casual conversation beginning with where she practiced and then onto questions regarding my volunteer experiences. She spent 1/3 of the interview giving me a "sales pitch" for UT Houston and also allowed time for me to ask her questions I had which was helpful. The first interview lasted 25 minutes. The second interview was with a PhD in pathologies and lab and was different. Though his style came off as more abrasive and was drastically different from the first it was a pleasant experience as well. He wanted more of a timeline of my college experience and asked me some questins regarding the content of my personal statement. We then discussed some of the research he is working on in the lab and even discussed some of his health issues. The second interview lasted 45 minutes. All in all the interview epxerience was pretty smooth and a pleasant exprerience. Certainly not as nerve wracking as I had expected! " Report Response
