What are your general comments?

"I was pleasantly surprised by the school and Lubbock. They have many students there to answer questions and the students are really really nice and talkative. The morning is spent orienting you with the university and what it offers (kinda boring). The afternoon is spent at interviews, student panel, and the tour. One of the students was so nice and gave us a ride back to the airport after the day was over. I went to Lubbock with an open mind and I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone there is so polite and so nice. They say hello, offer to help you if you look lost (which I did), and always make small talk. Even one of the TSA women at the airport knew all about the med school admissions process at Tech! We were all pleasantly suprised! Go to Lubbock and give them a chance...they deserve it."
