"The physical buildings were a little old, but everything seemed adequate (not state of the art). Wish we could have seen the anatomy lab, but understand their reasoning. The area isn't the best, but what can you do? " More from this Member | Report Response

"No good food on campus (that we saw). Residential location means affordable housing (very) but also not much vibrancy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Macro-location: San Antonio's not the most happening city (but I'm also an Austinite snob).

Oh, and how many bad drivers there are in that area. Also, the student tour guides were scheduled right before my interview (I had the earliest one in my group). I should've just left the group early because my guide only gave me 5 min to find it, and I had to dash down the hall to be on time." More from this Member | Report Response

"age of hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very negatively impressed by the new curriculum, which includes a long quiz every Monday morning from 8-10am that tests students on everything they learned the previous week. First year med students said that the quizzes just stressed them out and that they could never enjoy their weekends. The students told me that many of them had communicated to the administration that the quizzes were stressful and unhelpful, but the administration is keeping the quizzes in place. I don't think I would want to go to a med school that has weekly quizzes and that doesn't respond to students' feedback." More from this Member | Report Response

"The second, faculty interviewer gave me a stoic stare which lasted well after I had finished answering each question. At times, I felt as if he were questioning the truthfulness of my experiences. It was as if he expected more than the answers I had given, though I was not about to ramble on when I felt that I had adequately addressed the question. His lack of acknowledgement and emotion left me weary at the conclusion of the session. It would be a tragedy to have him as a teacher or as a physician. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews are closed file but interviewers have access to personal statements" More from this Member | Report Response

"I would be happy to go to this school. If there is one selling point, it is the sense of community cooperation and friendship. It appears to be a very caring place. Also, they advertised the fact that their residency placement scores tend to be very high." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day is planned well, with an introduction by the Associate Dean and the Dean, followed by an MS4 student panel, an MS4-led tour of some facilities, boxed lunch, and then our interviews. Interviewers had access to our personal statements, optional essays, and some basic information about our academic background (school/majors/minors). It was a tremendously low stress experience. If you ask almost any student why they chose the school, you will almost invariably get the response: "because of the people". There is a highly cooperative atmosphere that prevails here. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews are closed-file and in the afternoon. The morning is basically an introduction from the dean, student panel, lunch, and then tours. Interviewers can be mixed. My first interview was a little more quiz-like and interrogatory, and the second was very laid back and conversational. I talked to other interviewees who had seemingly more critical or opinionated interviewers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, nice people, seems like a pleasant four years. It isn't in a downtown area, though its removed by only a few miles. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews were very low stress and conversational. I could tell that my interviewers really prepared before my interviews (they both had copies of my PS with notes and highlights). Based on my interaction with students and faculty, this school seems like a great place to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"my 1st interviewer just didn't really seem 'there'" More from this Member | Report Response

"While it isn't my first choice school, I would not be upset if I ended up at this school. I am most impressed by the general positive outlook of the medical students, and especially impressed by the friendly interactions and lack of vicious competition." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seemed really nice and stopped to talk to us throughout the day. I had to wait outside one of my interviewer's office for 15mins before the interview and I probably had 20 students stop and say good luck. Interviews were very low stress they just wanted to get to know you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I would say that things could not have gone better. I felt as though each person involved with the whole process was trying to provide a positive experience without forcing the school on us." More from this Member | Report Response

I was able shake those nervous feelings early on. The interviews were for the most part very casual. " More from this Member | Report Response

"First interview was with a MSIV. It was conversational and low key. The second was with a MD who asked me a lot of ethical questions. The doctor's questions were thought provoking but he was very friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Morning presentation and Q&A with 4th years, then a tour (kinda disorganized), lunch with the students, 2 interviews, and then cookies with a chance to talk with other students (mostly 2nd years). Overall it was a good experience. My first interview was the sweetest lady ever. She was obviously very intelligent but kept the interview very conversational. My second interview was also friendly, although he conducted the interview in a more traditional Q&A way, which is a little more stressful. They have a really large clinical skills training center. The students are all very welcoming and seem to enjoy helping each other. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, I was not expecting too much when I went to the interview. I had thought of it as a ''practice'' interview. Boy was I wrong! Everything about the school is very impressive, from how they select whom to interview, the medical students and faculty that you talk to, the practice exams they make you do in that new simulation center (HEB also graciously donated a million dollars...) before you head over to the clinical part of your licensicing exam, to everything! I'm definitely considering this school now. Oh yeah, stay at the Country Hearth Inn. It is literally across the street from the medical school (where you will interview)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The social the night before was really well attended by 2nd years and 1st years (who weren't too useful b/c they had 1 week of classes under their belt) and I thought was really valuable for asking questions. Everyone was really friendly. There was a speech by the dean and a MS4 student panel. Everyone's interviews were in the afternoon." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great day overall! I met some really cool people who were also there interviewing. The school can be confusing to get around, but fortunately I work in a lab there so it wasn't that bad. Leave some time for finding things would be my main advice - and don't be nervous, just be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"As long as you prepare well and understand what you stated in your application this will be a great experience. There is no doubt that UTHSCSA produces excellent physicians." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience w/ friendly approachable faculty and enthusiastic students really selling their medical school in a good light. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the experience was great. The faculty and students were very nice although MS I and IIs had exams during my interview date, so I didn't get as much interaction with them as I would have liked. Also, everyone commented on how easy the interviews were, but I found that one of my interviews was extremely hard. The interviewer was very opinionated and for the sake of not arguing, I had to shut my mouth and take it all in, which angered me quite a bit. But I think that is rare. Otherwise, overall good experience minus the one bad interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started out with the option to attend a morning class, then we spent time with some food and drinks while the students and premeds mingled. After the presentation and Q&A session we went to lunch and had a tour of the facilities. The interviews occurred in the afternoon and were generally over before 4pm. I thought I didn't for as well as I had hoped but I was accepted so I must have done something right. I was interviewed by a faculty member and an MS4. Both were friendly and I had a nice conversation on the benefits of research experience to medical students with the faculty member. The interviews were fairly relaxed and conversational."

"I had a really wonderful day. The students and admissions staff were incredibly friendly and the school is really well designed. The hospitals provide tons of opportunities for clinical experience and the sim rooms let you practice how to talk with patients before you start clinic. San Antonio is a wonderful city, so I wouldn't mind spending 4 years here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was with a PhD, who basically just asked standard interview questions...nothing too hard. My second interviewer was an MD with a great sense of humor! Overall, a good experience and very little stress!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't know too much about this school before going, but I really felt like this school was unique when the dean started to describe how they choose applicants for invitation/acceptance. It seems like they really want to get people that are good people rather than only just good students. Their approach to patients in their faculties is also commendable: no one gets denied care. Overall, the attitude of the school, students, and faculty were amazing. The interviews I had were very relaxed and felt just like I was talking to good friends. Wonderful interviewers with great sense of humor - I was pretty lucky, some other applicants had some stressful interviews, but mine were very good." More from this Member | Report Response

"my interviews were very different from each other. The first was a young female MD and it was very laid back and conversational. The second was a stern older male MD who asked the tough ethical questions, but in the end was very nice. Almost everyone else I talked to that interviewed there said it was very laid back, especially when the 4th year students interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you're coming from the Northeast USA, San Antonio is a culture shock. Everyone has guns... lots of them! The overall city is sprawling. You need to own a car down in San Antonio... not much to do if comparing to major metropolitan cities. Students are cooperative, but I couldn't get the feeling on if they really socialized together outside of class. No dorms, everyone lives in apts or houses in the surrounding area."

"The night before the interview, the med students organized a "social" at one of the local bars. During arrival/registration, MS1 and MS2's mingle in the lecture hall foyer with the interviewees which made for a much more personal question/answer session about student life. Then Dr. Jones gave a presentation about the school, followed by a more formal question and answer session with MS4's, and another talk by Dr. Jones, this time about how UTHSCSA selects applicants for interviews (this was very impressive and demonstrated the school's philosophy on what makes a good physician). We had lunch (Jason's Deli) and got to mingle with MS1,2,and 4's and immediately began tours of the med school campus, hospital, and Clinical Skills Center. (There's lots of med students to lead the tours....try to be one of the last ones to leave, you'll probably end up in a smaller tour group and can get more of your questions answered) My first interview at 2:30pm was really laid back, more of a conversation than anything else, with an Ob/Gyn doctor. The second interview was with an MS4 student that followed more of the "traditional interview format," but was still really relaxed. With both of the interviewers, I could easily discern their love for the area, the school, and the people, which in turn made me really excited about the potential UTHSCSA has to offer. After the interviews, there's another mixer with MS1 and MS2's in the foyer." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved it! I had the opportunity to attend a Pulmonary Pathology Lab Lecture! I mingled with the other students and then we had Dr. Jones give an overview of the school and its assets. We then had a 4th year panel which answered a lot of interesting questions. Afterwards Dr. Jones explained how we were chosen to interview and then we had lunch. After lunch I got a tour of the CSC and the hospital. My interviews were at 1:30 and 2:30 with a Pathologist and an ER Medicine MD. The second interview was in the ER area and so it was a little bit difficult to locate but I was directed by a couple of friendly doctors. After my second interview I left the school and opted not to do the mixer with the MSI and MSII students." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interveiwed by a fourth year med student and the dean of admissions. The interveiw with the student was laid back and conversational. Be prepared for ethical/policy questions when you have the dean or doctors though!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started off in the breezeway between the first and second year classrooms. For 30 minutes, interviewees and first year students milled about, waiting for the day to begin. Afterwards, Dr. Jones led us to a classroom where he gave an overview of the school. Next, there was a panel of fourth year students that answered questions and talked about their experience. Dr. Jones returned; he talked a little bit more about the school and how we were selected out of all the applicants, then we went to lunch. After lunch, I chose to go on the tour and we went around to various floors of the hospital. The interviews didn't start until 1:30pm, and we had a half hour between our interviews to find our way around the complex. I had interviews with a fourth-year medical student and a doctor."

Then we headed in to listen to Dr. Jones explain all of the programs and hospitals. The student panel was great we were able to ask questions about volunteer opportunities and such. After lunch we had a tour, the hospital is one huge maze! Both of my interviewers were very nice and didn't ask questions that made me uncomfortable. I am very impressed with this school!"

"My first interview with a pediatric ER doctor was very laid back. (Ironically, however, he was the second person from that specialty with whom I've interviewed in my six interviews!) We had an extremely polite, funny, and warm conversation. I relayed my path toward medicine and he agreed with it. Talking about my extracurriculars and my schoolwork, he said that I was very mature and had already begun to consider thoughtfully many of the dilemmas of the medical community. As I left, he asked me about my next interviewer. I told him the name and he replied that I'd really like him since he's "quite a character". I figured this meant my next interviewer would be really funny. Wow, was I shocked at first. The second interviewer ran late with his previous interview—which seemed to be going okay. (Interviews were being conducted in study rooms of library with glass doors, so I was able to take a glance.) From the second I sat down, however, he started harassing me. Initially I thought that he was just coming across as gruff while jotting down my basic bio, but once we delved into more serious things, he'd hijack my answers by the fifth word and crash them in the most explosive and caustic way possible. To my credit I spotted the stress interview quickly and never lost my cool. I always tried to regain control of the conversation and steer it back to a more civil course. I never cracked, but, when I sensed that he began wanting me to push back a little, I obliged civilly. The scariest moment was when he asked me about the others schools where I'd intereviewed and demanded that I rank them—and then summarily derided my responses, of course. However, by this point he was giving me a little wink or a "good job" smirk as he asked each successively more inflammatory question. When he came to open up for my questions, I decided to calmly hit back with his own tactics: Question 1 (Getting My Bearings): "What does UTSA have to offer me over the other schools? What are your exact board scores? Your match rate?" Question 2 (Surprise Him Out of Left Field with Slight Derision): "Why did you choose that tie today?" (It was a holiday Grinch tie) Question 3 (Showing My Preparedness With Something He May Not Be Ready For): "Tell me about the Medical Humanities Center at UTSA." Question 4 (Finally Learning About Him): "How did you come to UTSA and what's your specialty? From the final quesiton I learned that he was the ER coordinator for all of San Antonio and that he'd come to it from the similar position in the military. This explained why he chose the stress route: to see if I could handle stress in the ambulance or in the trenches. I think he was impressed as he complemented me on my questions and preparedness (and implicitly my calmness). Morals of the story: 1. Beware the stress interview—they'll pop up when you least expect. 2. If you get one, KEEP YOUR COOL. Remember that you're being tested on your character and not your numbers now (which may be a blessing). But still remain professional and attempt to sell yourself. 3. Block out all your emotions and other thoughts and focus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the experience was very positive. This seems like a place where collaboration is highly valued. A couple of other schools in Texas (not mentioning any names) seem a lot more prone to cutthroat competition. I don't really care for that kind of academic environment, so I could totally see myself ending up at UTHSCSA and being very happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the fourth-year panel-it was great to have a chance to hear about their experiences with the school. The school definitely played up the clinical training opportunity in Harlingen which sounds awesome. I think it's awesome that the school seems to hand pick their class based on characteristics that aren't necessarily the same as other med schools." More from this Member | Report Response

Afterwards, there is a tour given by an MS4 of the school and hospital. Then comes the search for interviewers.

"It was good. My first interviewer was crazy. She was obsessed with women becoming more prevalent in specialized medical care. Second interviewer was a little stone-faced, but I just pretended like he was reacting to everything that I said exactly like I thought he would and eventually he was smiling and laughing....woo hoo! San Antonio seems like it would be a great school to go to!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pumped to attend UTHSC-SA from all the good things I had heard, but once I got there I was just disappointed, the class atmosphere seemed more "high-school-ish" than other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview experience! The interviewers were very candid and took extra time to ensure that all of their questions were answered. They didn't hold to the rigid 30-minute schedule. Curriculum is well-rounded and diverse." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good! I really liked the attitude of students and faculty. " More from this Member | Report Response

"very good experience overall--the medical school is located in a huge healthcare center, so clinical experience would be great; students and faculty seem very friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school- Dr. Jones was very positive and up front about their selection process, and the interviewers were interested in getting to know me than grilling me with tough questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Basically, I really like this school. The interviewers were really laid back, more like a conversation between friends type thing. People are open and willing to share their story, resources, and are just down right personable." More from this Member | Report Response

"to the person who said this was the least impressive ut school - 11/29/04 - i don't know how much weight i would put in someone's opinion who had to pursue an mph in order to get into med school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview was very low key, low stress. Its almost as if they're trying to entice YOU to consider THEM. They really have a strong focus on attracting non-traditional students, and they go a long way to accommodate the needs of the non-traditional. It comes off as a very non-competitive place - students are very supportive of one another." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is probably the least impressive of the UT schools. Of course, I will be thrilled to be there if this is where I get matched to however" More from this Member | Report Response

"the first interviewer did not ask me anything about me. she continued to grill me about the similiarities between doctors and nurses. she almost sounded like she was trying to convince me quit the road to med school. my second interviewer was a PhD, MD in Psychiatry. He was very very soft spoken and attentive and asked me questions about myself and why i want to be a physician! *whew*" More from this Member | Report Response

"I ended up liking UTHSCSA better than I thought I would coming in. I stayed with a student host that was really nice and attended the social the night before, which I thought was reasonably well attended. I expressed some interest in primary care, and both of my interviewers heavily advertised the Harlingen program, and I almost felt that I would HAVE to go in order to get the training I wanted. First interviewer was difficult to "connect" with and I felt really tense throughout the whole session. The second interviewer was much more conversational and I came out smiling. However, overall, I was impressed and would consider going here, although it probably won't be my first choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interview was great. The interview with the student was very stressful. It wasn't very open and kind of raggity. Then he asked at the end if I had any questions which I used to try and open him up. It worked very well, but I still wasn't sure how it went" More from this Member | Report Response

"Admissions staff were very accommodating. The dean of admissions made it clear that San Antonio invests much effort into choosing students who will be a good fit. Everyone seemed pleased to be there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems nice. I was a little surprised that they turn away many people with very high stats simply because their experience is not as in depth. This is bad in one way because your class is not as academically excellent as perhaps Southwestern; however, this also allows for a very diverse group of individuals who have other interests and talents outside medicine. And even if some of the students weren't that top .001% of their college class, there were many smart kids there, as most med schools are filled with the cream of the crop to begin with. Also, i am not sure how many good researching opportunities they have." More from this Member | Report Response

"San Antonio was so great!! There are so many reasons why I would like to attend there! Dr. Jones, the Dean of Admissions, spoke to us in the morning on how we were chosen for interviews based on our responsibilities, work and research experience, ec's, etc and not on numbers. They really emphasized that they want people who will make great doctors and not just great 1st and 2nd year med students. As a result, the interviewers have your secondary and your personal statement and that is all. That way no pre-conceived notions are made about you by the interviewer based on your grades and GPA." More from this Member | Report Response

"The people is what makes this school stand out. The buildings itself are not very impressive, and the school doesn't exactly stand out nationally, but I think that the friendly atmosphere could quite possibly overshadow all of that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a great interview experience and UTHSCSA has moved up on my list considerably. They have a friendly student environment and the faculty/administration actually listen to students' concerns. The location of the medical center in San Antonio is great because it is not in downtown, but not too far if you want to go into the city. Lots of open space, and fairly cheap housing. Most students walk or bike to school because they live so close. The interviews were very laid back, low stress. Both lasted about 30 minutes each. Since you might have a MS4 student interview you, pay attention to their attitude/personality during the student panel. That will help quite a bit!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was great, much better then I had expected. They did a great job of making the applicants really feel wanted-- it didn't seem like they were looking for flaws." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not as long of a day as A&M, the students were really friendly and we kept running into them -- each time they would ask us how our day was. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviews were very laid back, more of a conversation than a drill. There were a few questions that I had to stop and think about. Also, it helps to remember that you're there to sell yourself, even if it makes you sound like a talking resume." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was great experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I completed the day with a positive feeling overall. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They only had your personal statement & some info on your high school and university. Day was relatively short for me. Dean gives cool speech in the morning, MSIV come in for Q&A panel. These students also do the interviews for some people. Lunch of a boxed variety with a piece of chicken breast in a croissant. Campus tour or multimedia tour in the library after lunch. Rest of the afternoon is reserved for interviews. Both my interviewers were extremely nice, especially my MSIV. You hear horror stories about how mean they can be, but she was just really casual and conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great day, weather was sunny and 91 (cool for Aug in Texas). We were all 1st day interviewees, so a very smart and attractive bunch definitely getting in somewhere. I hope it's San Antonio for me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Today is the last day to change my preferences/rankings for the Texas match, but there's no need to take any action. I've ranked UT San Antonio #1, UT Southwestern #2, UT Houston #3. I want to be the BEST internist in the state of Texas and UT San Antonio, with its first rate education, will help me to become that. An added bonus, of course, is the school's location. Coming from UT Austin, I appreciate the Texas hill country a lot. I can't think of a more idyllic setting to study. Moreover, the people are really nice and helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"General Comments: This was my first of 7 interviews and it was the best school. I've been lucky to get interviews at most of the top schools across the country. This school, however, has everything I want-a thorough basic science curriculum and emphasis on developing good clinical skills. After I finish at the UT Medical School at San Antonio, assuming I'm accepted there, I'll have the keys to open any door in medicine, whether it'll be in research, academia or private practice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"all in all a good day. utsa is a place where i could definitely see myself for the next four years." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall this was a good experience, the medical students were friendly, helpful, and happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed by the school itself at San Antonio as well as the opportunities it offers its students. They work hard to advertise that they are a school that has plenty of resources and things to get involved in, but your experience there as a medical student is what you choose to make of it--you can submerge yourself in your studies and become a cutting-edge neurosurgeon or you can pursue other interests and activities while studying and still become a good doctor." More from this Member | Report Response

"got a much better impression of the school than what i was expecting, doesn't have the inferiority complex that seems to plague UT Houston because there's no other med school in San Antonio to compete with" More from this Member | Report Response

"Considering this was my first interview, it encouraged me that tis actually not dat bad" More from this Member | Report Response

"fantastic. this will be my number one choice our of all the texas schools. the emphasis on patient care and producing quality, caring doctors is very important to me. Also, the school is in a great part of San Antonio - that's always a plus. And, the students here are great - the most normal, laid-back, interesting people that i have met at any of my medical school interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"conversational, but know why you want to do medicine b/c SA is the type of school that wants PEOPLE not genius's" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, this is a fantastic program. The Dean of Admissions clearly and repeatedly stated that everyone is capable of succeeding there. The interviewers only have your bio information and essays. There really does seem to be an emphasis on admitting people who'll be good *physicians*. As he said, their looking to admit good future doctors, not outstanding first and second year medical students. Furthermore, there is lots and lots and lots of patient contact. The school does a lot to equip you with the skills necessary to make your clinic time useful instead of merely frightening. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day is decent. I would rank it right in the middle of the pack as far as their presentation in relation to the other Texas schools. I really liked San Antonio. I will have to deliberate between this school and Southwestern as to which will be my top choice. The ambiance of the school, the city, and the surrounding area really made a positive impression on me, and I love that they are so close to Austin. This was my final interview, so I can honestly say that this is a very good school and that the interviews are not intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I did not have a wonderful experience and I was kind of doubtful about the interviews as a whole. But I did learn new things about the school, and it was a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really loved this school. My interviews were very informative and actually fun. This has quickly become one of my top two choices." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was a very enjoyable interview experience. The interviewers were friendly and created a low-stress environment. I was asked no political/health care questions. The interviews are only partially open-file, they only have your demographics and personal statement (no grades, mcats or experiences). Very nice on the whole, a lot of positives at this school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was awesome. I really shouldn't have prepared for the interview because in all honesty I was asked about 5 questions total. Most of the time the interviewer was talking about the program or their career path or their philosophy on medicine. Extremely laid back. Relax and smile. No hard questions, no ethical questiosn were asked by the interviewers. My interviewer said that since you made it this far it's pointless to have you jump over another hurdle or through another loop." More from this Member | Report Response

"they scheduled us to arrive between 9 and 10. those that got there earlier met other interviewees and occasionally a med student would introduce themselves and then walk to another table. the admissions director then talked with us about how we were all 1s (every applicant is rated a 1, 2, or 3) and that they had not started interviewing 2s yet. hmmm. he also told us that SA stresses on drawing in potential leaders in the community-something MCAT's and GPA can't predict. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The people seem awesome. The curriculum seems awesome. I like San Antonio. I only said "no change: because my exerience (outside of my boring interviews) just validated my initial positive impressions of the school. Their emphasis on early clinical exposure and diversity was the main selling point in my mind. UT-SA is looking for well-rounded people, not the brains that do nothing but study." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviews were easy and even enjoyable, but there is something about the school that just doesn't make it the right school for me. The interviewers only have your personal statement. They dont' have any grades or MCAT scores. " More from this Member | Report Response

"great school. I left with a much more positive attitude toward the school than when i arrived. Even though the interview is closed file, I was asked by one interviewer my grades and mcat scores." More from this Member | Report Response

"They are very friendly, very willing to answer questions and the pre-interview social is worth attending!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, positive...got interviewed by a student and all of them are very nice. don't be intimidated by the "stress" interview--just hold your own. a lot of students i talked to felt they hadn't done that well in their interviews but still got in. there is definitely something special about san antonio, and it's going up high on my list :) " More from this Member | Report Response

"just relax, they aren't there to drill you, and it shows in them too. take it all in, and remember THEY WANT YOU." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean and students were all extremely helpful and friendly. The question-and-answer session with the 4th years was very interesting and informative. The interview locations were spread out all over the school and hospital and were kind of hard to find, but the interviews themselves were not stressful at ALL - both just asked questions about what I wrote in my personal statment. Since there was so much time in between interviews, we had plenty of time to talk and get to know each other." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was set up with with great student interaction" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very impressed with UTSA. The students were fun, the curriculum was solid, and they really emphasized acquiring clinical skills." More from this Member | Report Response

"The one with the student was not great, the one with the faculty member was. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience. The interviewers were very relaxed. Also, they were interested in finding out more about your personality rather than your academic achievements." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, it was a good experience. The weather was unusually beautiful, and my interviewers gave me ample opportunity to put my best foot forward." More from this Member | Report Response

"A good experience overall, in my top few choices. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Veyr positive - both interviews were laid back, even the one I had with the dean. The students are very friendly and happy with their decision to attend UTHSCSA, the campus is generally a happy, low-stresss place, despite the fact that exams were going on. The suburban setting is great, the visit itself was low-stress and it was generally a good day." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have a good rapport with my first interviewer. She had not read any information on me even though my personal statement and some biographical information was provided, so she asked general questions like "tell me about yourself" and "why do you want to be a doctor." My second interviewer asked a lot of tough questions based on my personal statement. We went back and forth for awhile, but overall, I think that I was able to express myself clearly and positively." More from this Member | Report Response

"Suprisingly easy and relaxed - all they had was your personal statement, and they only asked qns about motivation, background etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall positive. The only negative aspect is the school forcing a part of the class to move to Harlingen half way through their education. Many students are not happy about it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Worst interview I've been to. Interviews are rushed because they must be exactly 30 minutes each. Interviewers were quite weird, one didn't even ask me questions, just talked about how free clinics were overcrowded. Overall it was a good experience and looks to be a good school. Interviews suck, because no questions are asked and it is rushed, you don't have time to get much out so be prepared to talk fast." More from this Member | Report Response

"very positive - the interviewers were easy-going. We basically carried on a conversation rather than a structured question & answer session" More from this Member | Report Response

"the experience was okay. there was nothing that really stood out about the school in a positive or negative way. the students were friendly but it seemed like the students at ut-houston were more close. overall, san antonio would not be my first choice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"i went to ut-sa not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. especially by the friendliness of the students, and it genuinely seemed like a really good school, despite its reputation. i really liked it overall!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good day overall. The people were very open and friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was pretty well structured with a presentation, medical student panel, lunch with current students, followed by a tour, and concluded with interviews and refreshments.
