What impressed you positively?

"It was a 2-day interview process, the first day being a day where interviewees were able to shadow in the clinic and have a full tour of the medical school and its hospital and the second being the actual day of interviews + tour of the apartments in the area. On the first day, there was also a cultural show." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"At the MS0 Weekend, the welcome weekend for UTSW that happens in February, I was asked repeatedly if UTSW was my first choice. I was honest and said that I was waiting until I heard back from Baylor (and I eventually did and ended up choosing to go to BCM) but that I was still open-minded and wanted to hear how UTSW might be a better fit for me. Some students seemed to react negatively when I said this, even one telling me that "well, everyone wants Baylor, but I didn't get in so I went to UTSW," and these students weren't eager to talk more with me about the school. Since UTSW is a close second to Baylor but not (yet) a top 20 medical school, I felt that the admin spent a lot of time "selling" themselves as to why the school was better than Baylor, even giving us a three page packet of student testimonials of why they chose UTSW (and most of the responses were "I chose UTSW over Baylor because...")."
