"There wasn't any major galveston airports so i spent 4 hours on shuttle rides between galveston and Bush Intercontinental in Houston. It's not that big of a deal really...Since most of your guys are driving from other parts of Texas. Shuttle rides cost 60 bucks, last shuttle leaves Bush Intercontinental at 9PM." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very exited even before I got to the school. I took the online tour and was amazed at how beautiful the school was. This was also a feeling shared by many of my fellow interviewees. I was interviewed my two doctors, one PHD and one MD. The PHD was interested in my research. The MD was concerned about my undergrad grades, seemed satisfied with my answer (I hope). There are things to do in Galveston. I was told that the waves do get big enough to surf(by my PHD) I was also told by my MD that the greens fee at the municipal golf course is only 10 dollars.
