What are your general comments?

"UTMB was at the bottom of my list as far as Texas schools go. After visiting it is near the top. Every single student and faculty member talked about how the program is geared toward cooperation. not competition. The p/f grading and PBL style curriculum certainly help you understand how to work in a team and meet nearly every med student. The campus is big and very historic being the first med school in texas and with the infectious disease research center. The surrounding area is kind of sketch but that's coming from a suburban kid who now lives in a nice city so in reality it's probably not bad. Everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy being there, despite the oppressive humidity and unpredictable rain. Both interviewers were PhDs which was disappointing (considering I'm MD only) but both implied the interview here is mainly a formality to split hairs between similarly qualified applicants. Don't sweat the interview, use it to really find out if it's a place you could see yourself living in." Report Response
