What impressed you positively?

"-The amount of facilities (surrouding hospitals, clinics, laboratories) available for rotations. UT-memphis is definitely the medical hub of the south!!!!! - Dianne Harris and Nelson Strother are the nicest people this side of the planet... made everyone feel so at home and comfortable about the process - Both of my interviewers... after the initial 5 minutes of nervous word jumble (on my behalf), the rest of the time didn't even seem like an interview... very conversational and personal " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Well, other than arriving slightly late (not too much, but pretty sad for someone who lives in Memphis!!!), everything went smooth as ice. Dianne Harris is an angel (she actually drove me to my first interview). Nelson Strother was very friendly and informative of the whole process. I was fighting to think of questions to ask. My interviewers put me at ease (trust me, not an easy task when dealing with my nervousness) and just wanted to get to know me better (no question firing or argumentative type confrontations). The student tour was fairly comprehensive and the tour guide really did her best to show us all that UT had to offer. Definitely my top choice school now!!!" Report Response
