What impressed you negatively?

"Wow. where do I begin? They know of the rumors of UTSW that it is competative and cutthroat, and spend alot of time trying to prove them wrong...but all they do is draw more attention to it. HM...maybe its that way because the program is designed that way? they give out grades/GPA and they CURVE the students against each other! Furthermore, the students do nothing to prove it wrong either...they said ''well why do you wanna go to a medical school thats laid back and relaxed? dont you want to learn how to become a doctor?'' wtf? also, they had to pay the students to take us out on tours...major turnoff because it just shows how unenthusiasitc thier students are for the program. finally, their facilities are really old and crappy and so are their affiliated hospitals. Also, the other interviewees were not very friendly, but i blame this on the program...typically you need the dean or the introduction to loosen everyone up, and the intro was really lame. The curriculum sucks also. Its your super-traditional curriculum...never see a patient until your 3rd year. finally, the student panel all said they came to southwestern because of its reputation or because it was thier second choice and they didnt get into their top choice or some lame stuff like that...none of them actually said they had a good feeling about it" Report Response
