What are your general comments?

"The campus is relatively nice, and the students seemed positive about their school. I was a bit peaved during the interview because of the comments of one of the interviewers. I come from a relatively good-sized town in east Texas, and one of the interviewers had lived in my home town for a year (and didn't have too many good things to say about it). I shared many of the same feelings as she, mainly that the town is restrictive, and that if the bible belt had a buckle it would be in my home town. However, without knowing anything about my religious background she began bashing southern baptists. Later I thought to myself, what if I were a southern baptist? Such a culturally diverse place is supposed to be tolerant of another's religion right? Think again. I was questioned whether I would be able to handle the ''culture shock'' of northern california. Although this might be the case, I really don't feel that this had anything to do with my abilities as a potential physician. On a positive note, San Francisco is a great place, and all interviewees should take the time to experience the city." Report Response
