What impressed you negatively?

"Very shocked by some of the people's behaviors and responses. My tour guide was talking about how LBJ delivers over 16,000 babies and how this is the most in the nation. He then went on to say how its probably due to Dallas having a very high hispanic population....very offensive. A interviewer also added that there is a split class system in dallas with the rich folk living north of downtown and the ghetto south. He also added that " there's alot of crime over there because that's where all the blacks and hispanics live"....very surprising to hear that. Very competitive atmosphere and cocky students pushing that they're Tier 1 and dissing other schools like Baylor. One med student told me the following story: "My doctor told me that if you get into medical school, then you're smarter than 98% of the population. And if you do bad on your USMLE's but go to UT-sw its okay b/c, if you go to UT-sw, then you're already smarter than every other med student. So yeah, I'm smart" I was like wtf, did she just say that. " Report Response
