"The medical school building is starting to look dated. It's weird, but the presence of a Subway and a coffee shop in the building makes it feel like a mall food court. Doesn't do much in terms of helping me learn." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the campus is not near downtown San Antonio... And that the students on the panel and giving the tour would be on the admissions committee." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I ended up liking UTHSCSA better than I thought I would coming in. I stayed with a student host that was really nice and attended the social the night before, which I thought was reasonably well attended. I expressed some interest in primary care, and both of my interviewers heavily advertised the Harlingen program, and I almost felt that I would HAVE to go in order to get the training I wanted. First interviewer was difficult to "connect" with and I felt really tense throughout the whole session. The second interviewer was much more conversational and I came out smiling. However, overall, I was impressed and would consider going here, although it probably won't be my first choice." Report Response
