What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was held on a Saturday, which meant the campus was deserted. It didn't accurately portray a typical day at both the school and Parkland (however, they did invite us back to go on clinical rounds). NO patient contact your first two years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How laid back and conversational the interviews would be...even at Southwestern. Parkland serves over 800,000 outpatients and delivers over 16,000 babies each year." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a very organized day, starting with breakfast and a talk by the dean of admissions. They went over details of the curriculum, and had a fantastic speech by the alumni affairs person regarding life at Southwestern and financial aid. Lunch was decent, and it seemed like all the first year students came to lunch to talk with the interviewers (influenced by the free food no doubt). We had tours of Parkland Hospital and Children's. Both interviews were back to back occuring in the morning. Day lasted from 9AM to around 3PM. Overall a low stress interview day." Report Response
