What are your general comments?

"I absolutely enjoyed my interview day at Texas A&M. It starts off at 7am in College Station where you have breakfast and are greeted by Filo and his presentation. The M1/M2 panel was informative as was the financial aid briefing. My interviews were with an M2 and a physician in Temple. They both were VERY conversational and not stressful at all. I got the sense that the students and faculty share an almost familial relationship. Everyone knows each others names and care about each other. Overall the day was very long and tiring. And it was HOT - especially with a suit on. Be prepared to walk a lot on tours and also to and from your interview room. The food was grand - like a banquet. " Report Response
