What are your general comments?

"Southwestern needs to get itself together. On the one hand it's constantly comparing itself to other top-ranked med schools (during the orientation presentation they demonstrate all these random ways that Southwestern is ranked above better schools, like number of Academy of Sciences members). On the other hand, they still align themselves with the other (very unimpressive) TX public schools through the TMDSAS. They should follow Baylor's lead and go AMCAS. Plus the frustrating Aggie/Longhorn jokes are not a good way to attract out-of-staters. The students there were either people who only applied to TX schools and were lucky to get into Southwestern, or hoped to go somewhere else but resigned themselves to Southwestern. The new student center is impressive, but when the school puts more effort into showing you their student center than showing you their academic buildings, something seems wrong." Report Response
