What are your general comments?

"General Comments: This was my first of 7 interviews and it was the best school. I've been lucky to get interviews at most of the top schools across the country. This school, however, has everything I want-a thorough basic science curriculum and emphasis on developing good clinical skills. After I finish at the UT Medical School at San Antonio, assuming I'm accepted there, I'll have the keys to open any door in medicine, whether it'll be in research, academia or private practice.
