What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with the atmosphere at UTMB. The students and faculty all look and sound very happy. The students had very few criticisms about the school, the biggest one focusing more on Galveston than UTMB (that Galveston needs a giant mosquito net), which says something about how they feel about the school's program. UTMB is one of the few sites in the country with a BSL-4 facility --- how exciting --- and there are opportunities to work in Global Health, research, volunteer/community service projects, etc." Report Response
