What are your general comments?

"UTMB is an ok school, i just really hate the location, and campus. the construction going on was annoying.. my interviews were fantastic, the first was a surgeon at shriners and although he didnt read my file, he was very nice and wanted to get to know me. he talked alot, but also gave me alot of time to say what i wanted, so that worked out well. my second guy was a phd who published some paper in nature (!) and pulled that out in the middle of our interview when he realized how much into research i am. very nice guy and asked interesting questions about my research, and i really liked his research as well, although his lab looked very out dated. food was HORRIBLE...
