What are your general comments?

"UT-Houston is the best place to have your first interview. You'll feel so at home and so special. My two interviewers were so nice. The first one talked about half the time, mostly about UT-Houston- she was a resident here and is now faculty, plus she's meds/peds which is what I want to do! So that was basically a conversation. The other was more like an interview but still very warm, as is everyone else. I love it here!!" Report Response
