What impressed you positively?

"Honestly, everything. I wasn't expecting such an amazing school--BCM's diversity of clinical experiences, both in the Texas Medical Center and in affiliated programs, are second to none; EARLY clinical exposure (starting in Week 2 of MS1); 18 month basic sciences curriculum; opportunities for research; special tracks designed to let you craft the curriculum to what you're interested in; happy happy students that glow about how supported they are by the faculty and administration...oh, and the building itself is gorgeous.

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed Baylor...the whole interview experience is very low-key, you arrive at noon, which I appreciated, but it does make for a long day. There were about 50 or 60 interviewees there, based out of a large auditorium like room, that's fully stocked with food and lots of med students circulate through to answer questions and chat up the interviewees. After a brief introduction, you either go on a basic science tour or to your scheduled interviews, and hang out in the base camp in between. Then around 4 pm students come in to give the curriculum and clinical facilities intro, then you split off into groups to tour the medical facilities. Then you meet back for dinner and an informal student panel, and off to Two Rows for more socializing if you want. I bowed out of the Two Rows event, it was 7:30 pm and I was exhausted. I stayed with a medical student, which I would also highly recommend." Report Response
