What are your general comments?

"I showed up that morning after struggling to find the specific parking garage. They gave us a ut-houston bag with all of the information we could possibly need. We had a little orientation meeting before the tour for those interviewing in the afternoon. It was kind of sobering, but humorous to watch a video with the song we are the world about the Katrina volunteer efforts. I was very impressed with the facilities. I had read over and over in the Baylor view book about how wonderful the Medical Center is, but the student resources for UT-H look incredible. The lunch was spectacular. We actually had fajitas (other schools should take note!). My two interviews were really laid back, but I had trouble understanding my first interviewer's thick hebrew accent! Overall, the day made me think twice about going to a different school with a possibly bigger name." Report Response
