"What is your MCAT score?

Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing too difficult. I was asked what I was most proud of and well...in a 30-minute interview it is hard to elaborate about something that you're so passionate about and have the other person understand in such a limited amt of time. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Had an answer (not memorized) ready for any possible question or situation by compiling huge list of questions ever asked. WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY OVERPREPARED.

"Despite claims of how random this whole med app process is, I sometime wish I hadn't applied here or accepted the interview invitation. It cost me more than any other texas school to apply here. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Lubbock is a friendly city and tech seems a friendly school. I ranked them 5 out of 7 mainly b/c of preference for UT schools and b/c I didn't want to move to west texas. But it is a fairly good school - with a ton of longhorns. hook 'em...even if in lubbock. =)" Report Response
