What impressed you positively?

"The academic program at Tech is very solid with good residency placement and good clinical exposure." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Too much of a defensive attitude regarding the city of Lubbock. It got old hearing "Lubbock really isn't that bad" several times throughout the day. One of the students on the panel said, "we are a pretty competitive class. I guess you can consider us a class of gunners". Not really interested in that type of environment." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Reliance on hotel shuttle service isn't a wise idea, when you want to arrive at the interview early. Didn't really matter, since the welcome session started almost an hour late." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Probably the worst interview experience I've had so far (5 others to compare with). Rather disorganized process overall. When one of the speakers started touting the joys of a drive-in movie theater, putt-putt golf courses, and a go-kart track, I started to worry. My first interview went very well with "tell me about yourself", an ethics question regarding abortion, and some questions regarding my medical experience (lots). The second interview went downhill when the interviewer (mistakenly) pegged me for a conservative and starting asking liberally biased questions about foreign policy and Bush's neo-conservatism. I love history and world politics, so the questions were pretty enjoyable to answer. I think that the program is good and housing is cheap, but I don't like the idea of uprooting a spouse, who would be established in the community to move to one of the other locations. I would attend, but it isn't my top choice." Report Response
