What impressed you negatively?

"the students I met there - some were really cool, one was a biyatch - typical at all med schools though. But overall the students were mainly from TX and so I felt a bit left out since I'm out of state. I'm also traveled, cosmopolitan and I felt the students there weren't. I'm sure they are smart, nice people. But they aren't as suave, polished, well rounded as students from other top schools - they even came off as a but close-minded and ignorant to me. This is b/c they severely limit their applicant pool by not accepting many students nationwide from top undergrad schools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had really high hopes of UT SW and Dallas before I came here. I was let down b/c Dallas isn't as big/cosmopolitan city as I had thought. Its a more homogenous, rich , older population with not as many young professionals as I'd like. Also they students there weren't the same caliber as those from other schools. However the med school and hospital lived up to their amazing rep. I was accepted here but don't think I'll be attending " Report Response
