What impressed you positively?

"How caring and supportive both the admissions office and the interviewers were. My academic interviewer was stellar!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some people complain about how old the buildings look. I personally think its a trivial detail. How your lecture room looks isn't going to affect your quality of education. UT COM has an awesome clinical program. That more than compensates!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I wouldn't need to stress out. If I had listened to the current students about how laid back the interview was, I could have enjoyed the process more. My personal interview wasn't even an interview. We just joked around and talked about what med school will be like!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very laid back interview. The current students were phenomenal in sharing what worked or didn't work for them as students. Also the students are not pitted against each other so the competitiveness is very low (but there are always a few gunners here and there). They have an awesome support system with tutors available. Faculty seems to genuinely care about their students and have a great relationship with them. Great clinicals and a ton of hospitals in the area for exposure." Report Response
