What are your general comments?

"Really liked the people at this school. It was my first interview and I didn't feel like it went well at all. First interviewer was a phd: very conversational, but talked mostly about himself. Second was with an MD: friendly, had specific questions prepared from my application. One of the main drawbacks about this school was that I felt they were trying to hide the damage of the storm. The few places they showed us were nice, but i got the impression that the rest of the school/ hospital system was still in shambles. My first interviewer told me his department was only 10% of what it was, and he felt it was a similar story across the UTMB system. I know they are making significant progress in the rebuild, i just don't know how quickly its happening." Report Response
