What are your general comments?

"The weather was great, fortunately I didn't have to go through all the humidity and heat that people usually have to deal with at UTMB. The hotel I stayed in had bugs, wasn't too great. The campus itself was fine, I'd rank the facilities between Houston and SA. The people are about the same - they seem to be great no matter where you go in TX. My interviews were mixed. The first one was just simply awesome. Felt like I clicked with the doc, we shared common interests and he was very engaging and informative. The second interviewer ruined the whole experience for me. He was late (understandable), but he spent 20 min reading my file and asking a question every now and then. Also asked about MCAT/GPA when it was supposed to be closed file. Then he got beeped away (understandable). I just wish I had a more discussion type interview, but oh well win some lose some."
