What are your general comments?

"Baylor College of Medicine is an amazing school that I knew that I would like and I came out liking it even more. The students are calm, are great presenters, and are obviously all intelligent. Being from a non-ivy league school, seeing lots of high tier institutions represented at the interview session was a little intimidating, but everyone's in the same boat. No extensive walks to interview locations, but eat beforehand - the refreshments they serve can in no way shape or form replace lunch. The day starts at noon, which is nice (you avoid a lot of morning rush-hour traffic), but everyone is just tired by the end of the interview and a lot of people left early after their interviews. My interviewers were both really nice, and my second interviewer told me that I would fit in really well at the institution. What a great compliment, so I'm hoping for the best!" Report Response
