What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed with the completion of new facilities on the campus, as well as the friendliness of the students and the staff. Also, they have recently hired their President from Harvard University, and they seem to be on the upswing in regard to their board scores (they increased 6% which puts them at 91% for the USMLE Step 1). I think that this is probably due to the new curriculum that was recently implemented on campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was pretty impressed with everything that I saw on campus; the only thing I wondered about was why they are a regional campus (after two years, you can stay in Lubbock, or you can go to Amarillo, Odessa, or El Paso (which will end once El Paso has their first group of medical students become 3rd year students in 2011 (check the year on that)). However, I was told that the reason for this is to give 3rd and 4th year medical students a chance to see different things and have more opportunities to get involved (Amarillo is a good place to go for surgery; El Paso is a good place to go for OB-GYN and infectious disease). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Really, I think that the process is stressful for everyone, but if you can just relax and realize that the interviews are the good part of the application process, then you will be much better off." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think that Lubbock is different from most places that people go to medical school, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. The people in Lubbock seemed to be really friendly, and the medical school is near campus, so there is a lot of student activity surrounding the medical campus. However, as I mentioned earlier, Tech's medical school really seems to be on its way up, as they are continually getting more competitive (at least from what I can tell). So overall, I was impressed by what the medical school had to offer." Report Response
