What impressed you positively?

"I thought the facilities were top notch... atleast compared to the other schools I interviewed at. Their deep pockets definately show. My single favorite interviewer was at this school. I really enjoyed the laid back interviews. I also enjoyed the provided information packet on each interviewer which included their hobbies, allowing me to discuss topics with them other than just medicine." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't feel I had enough exposure to the students. I was really interested in talking with them given the competitive reputation of the student body. Some kind of informal social event the night before with the students would have been welcomed. I must admit that the great senior videos for the most part squashed my worries about competitiveness. Also, I wish the interview day was on a weekday because it was rather dead that saturday." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really impressed by this school. The interview day was extremely well prepared and executed. I felt that I recieved alot of useful information about the school and about Dallas. I was offered admission to this school and I have accepted their offer. I guess that speaks louder for the school than anything else I can say." Report Response
