What are your general comments?

"UTMB provides free parking in the parking garage. The opening presentation was short and sweet. Interviews were scheduled one after the other, but the interviews were only supposed to be 30 min long, and there was plenty of time to get to the next interview. My interviewers were both very nice and answered all my questions about Galveston and UTMB at length. The interviews were stress free and conversational instead of grilling. Lunch was delicious and they gave us candy because it was Halloween! Also, the campus tour was cool, it was a small group (there were 4 of us plus the student guide) so it was easy to ask questions. He took us to the gross anatomy lab and showed us a cadaver, and also to the "control room" where they watch you as you interact with a standardized patient (an actor). Overall, UTMB has very nice facilities, great students and faculty, and if you like a small city and island weather, Galveston is great." Report Response
