What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a great interview experience and UTHSCSA has moved up on my list considerably. They have a friendly student environment and the faculty/administration actually listen to students' concerns. The location of the medical center in San Antonio is great because it is not in downtown, but not too far if you want to go into the city. Lots of open space, and fairly cheap housing. Most students walk or bike to school because they live so close. The interviews were very laid back, low stress. Both lasted about 30 minutes each. Since you might have a MS4 student interview you, pay attention to their attitude/personality during the student panel. That will help quite a bit!" Report Response
