What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a med student so I got their point of view of the school which may not necessarily agree with my impression at the end of the interview day...I went in very open-minded about the school because I had heard mixed reviews...I tried not to go in with any misconceptions like the lack of things to do...I think you gotta look at the positive side...I'm a city person and I wouldn't mind being in a small town for two years....the day started off with the lovely Linda Prado introducing the school...we walked to our conference room and the Dean of Admission spoke to us about the school. There was a series of presentations about the curriculum, student affairs, financial aid....after that we had lunch and I was in the group of those who went first to their interviews. I interviewed with two PhDs which was fine. The first guy was a combined Micro/Immuno...he was awesome...one of my favorite Upper Bio Courses is Immuno so we talked about that and his research interests..I found it a plus to have something in common with the interviewer...anyways...the usual interview questions were asked...this was my third interview so I had to pretend I was thinking hard about my answers..lol...then after that I had a break and then on to my second interviewer...this guy was Italian...I'm used to the Italian character...he was very to the point and had no time to dawdle outside of conversation...we conversed a little bit in Italian...the interview was a lot shorter than the others....despited this he agreed and supported my motivation for medicine....I just wished he had taken time like other interviewers to get to know me better in person...after that we congregated...went to a student panel and then ended with a tour of the facilities...All in all, I would not mind coming here especially since the HSC students don't seem to be forced to interact with the undergrads at TTU..."
