What are your general comments?

"I will rate UTMB as my top choice. They gave me an interview before they had my MCAT scores. Students are very positive and everyone seems to get along really well. My first interviewer was a physician. He took me on a tour around his unit and some other places. He even walked me to my second interview (very good first impression). My second interview was with an MD/PhD. He was just as approachable as the first and very easy to talk to. " Report Response
