What are your general comments?

"My whole attitude regarding A&M is positive! The administration was exceptional. When I walked by Filo's office, he asked me, "How was your flight from --?" How could it be any more welcoming!? The students were very approachable and anxious to answer questions. The student panel was professional and took extreme pride in their school and representation. The interviewers were tough (toughest of all the schools I've interviewed at), but by feeling so welcomed, I was confident and ready for their questions. Both interviewers were very familiar with my application, experience, and education, so be sure to know yourself as well as they will. The only situation that would keep me from ranking A&M #1 would be the dislocation to Temple during the clinical years. My girlfriend is a physician, so relocation would be difficult. S&W is very well thought of, and residency matches are good." Report Response
