What are your general comments?

"Overall, the school was quite impressive. There is money coming in for the school to expand beyond college station. Just relax and answer the interview questions openly and honestly. The cirriculum seems typical but I am not quite sure if I like how they grade you in gross anatomy. Lastly, they are starting a 4 year track in college station and they just started a 4 year track in temple. I am still not convinced that the students in temple have the same resources and faculty assess as the students would in college station. (just my opinion)" Report Response
