What impressed you positively?

"students are TERRIFIC. They literally go out of their way to help you. Atmosphere aside from the curriculum is very laid-back. Housing is cheap, students are happy, and there's a fantastic teaching hospital there. Also a great opportunity to do clinicals in Harlingen. The pre-interview social was a lot of fun. The associate dean is such a nice guy too. Also it's in a great area of San Antonio." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviewers (both MD's for me) only see your personal statement. My first was kind of critical, but overall an interesting, great guy. He approached my statements with skepticism as to whether I'm interested in the Hispanic population but we had a good conversation about different cultures. My 2nd interviewer was a nice old man who seemed like he just wanted someone to talk to him. Asked the usual interview questions - nothing tough. Both sessions were mostly conversational."
