What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't get to see or hear much from the staff at the presentation. It was kind of unorganized and random bits of information. The only downfall of this school may be that it is in Lubbock." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There was some confusion on the forums and the interview feedback as to whether these interviews at Tech were open or closed file. We were told in the morning that they are OPEN. The interviewers get everything EXCEPT your GPA/Coursework and MCAT scores (of course they can still ask you about these if they wish). One of my interviews might be considered closed since she didn't even look at my file during the interview, but I would still inform others that this school does open interviews with blind GPA/MCAT. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This interview was the most laid back I have had. I spent 30 minutes just talking about all of my experiences with one interviewer and had a great conversation. The other interviewer was more direct with questions, but she didn't ask me anything difficult at all. Besides the school being far from home, I was very pleasantly surprised by my visit, the people, the facilities, the curriculum, and I think it would be a nice place to go (Lubbock and West Texas aside). So if you are going, go with an open mind. Lubbock is not as terrible as many would think." Report Response
