"All the faculty is excited about the university. Many left well established jobs and careers to be a part of this and are really great at showing how much they believe in the mission of the school. The fact they have more faculty than students is major b/c you will spend 4 years without any competition and you will get a lot more attention. The professors will be like your friends b/c of how few members there are, and everyone will get a chance to start their own club or be officers and establish everything that they can think of because the school is waiting to be developed in that sense. In the library section everyone gets their own cubicle and when rotation time comes around (and they do have some great affiliations already, including working closely with UMMSM) you will have a lot of experience coming your way b/c you won't have to fight and share with another 150 med students in your class."

What impressed you negatively?

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"Student attitudes. Some where really enthusiastic about talking about their experience, but most seemed a bit uninterested and blah about the program. It almost seemed like a majority of students were forced to be here, and could care less. Also, sometimes it felt like the faculty knew that they were a new program and had a lot of work to do, so they were trying to sell the school to you and sell their weaknesses as strengths." More from this Member | Report Response

"Selling the product a little too hard with presentations, rather than giving us experiences or more discussion time with students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Exams almost every Monday/Every other Monday No separate Medical building Very small facility for a class of 120+ to share Ranking grading system Area's high COL Traffic is a pain (make sure to add at minimum 30min to your projected travel time)" More from this Member | Report Response

"They make you buy a very expensive computer at the start of med school ($1700). Only 3 cadavers for the whole class, all pro-sected (no dissection). Cost of living is not cheap and clinicals are all over the place (lots of driving)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't get to tour the anatomy lab, The admissions staff ran the interview like a marketpalce, I did not feel the leadership came from a medical standpoint but rather a business standpoint . You're just a number. No building exclusively dedicated to the medical students, it's mostly shared with nursing and other undergraduate students and rather small and crowded." More from this Member | Report Response

"the lack of a dedicated facility for the school; they share with the nursing school and others." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was in the second round of interviews, so this was expected: there was a little bit of disorganization. Quite a bit of standing/sitting around waiting for the next step in the process. This wasn't a problem though because the other applicants were great to talk with." More from this Member | Report Response

"How hot Miami is!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Presenter took several calls during his presentation. Admissions staff spent ~ 10 minutes trying to sell us on how great Leon Medical center is (where they do the geriatrics rotation). Most people from Miami know that this place is NOT where you want to be doing your rotations, I think they knew this too which is why they were working so hard to convince us otherwise. Medical Library is far away from classroom building." More from this Member | Report Response

"Still in the process of taking over the building from public health and nursing students." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really. The medical school facilities are still small but they are expanding every year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day wasn't very well structured (we interviewed in 3 time slots, and while our group wasn't interviewing, we just sat around, which nothing planned. Most of the interview day was waiting.) I felt like this was indicative of other things with the school as well. I think they have tremendous ideas and potential, but are still kind of getting their act together." More from this Member | Report Response

"it's just weird that they don't have a reputation yet, also they kept emphasizing how great the curriculum was, and no one has taken step ones yet....." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's in a relatively small shared building. They are not even sure how they're going to fit our new incoming class into the small auditorium" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was unable to meet any med students, they happened to stop by when we were all on the tour. Some of the facilities that were emphasized were silly things like the spa, dry cleaners, and game stop. I did not like having two people interviewing me, I found it hard to make eye contact, I had to keep looking at the one who asked the question or switching my head back and forth. It took three people for them to answer my question as to when they thought we all would hear back, I thought it was a relatively simple question though. They took a long time to meet over my file, which as longer than they had originally said, about 2 1/2 months. They claimed they had plenty of spots left in their class when I interviewed in October, but when they started reviewing files, people from my interview time were automatically accepted/alternate, meaning they did not have plenty of spots left." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour of the hospital, no anatomy lab, small campus and facilities, nothing that impressive about the school other than the friendly admissions and staff" More from this Member | Report Response

"Limited view of college of medicine facilities...tour was more of general campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Hugely expensive for out-of-state students! It's a great school and it's all about providing healthcare to the underserved, which is wonderful, but for those who might want to take that skill set back to their home states, FIU wants you to pay through the nose."

"Lots of construction going on; we visited the library and there were only 2 students there studying and they weren't super excited to speak with us (maybe because they were studying...)." More from this Member | Report Response

"There won't be many upperclassmen to share experiences(I'm interviewing for just the 2nd class), and practically all the buildings are still under construction and the majority won't be completed until "10-20 years later."" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really." More from this Member | Report Response

"out-of-student tuition/ fee - over $80000/ yr" More from this Member | Report Response

"They kept saying how nice, easy, and conversational our interview would be but one of my interviewers was really harsh (with the ethical questions). However, only 25% of the interviewees got this doc and this doc probably won't be there everyday, so there is very little chance that you will have an interview like mine. Everyone else I talked to said their interview was very relaxed, nice, and conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they are a first year school that is not fully accredited yet" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish the facilities were finished. Right now it's in the top floor of the Health Life Sciences II Building and much of the school is kind of spread out b/c they're taking up available space.

"They say that if what they are going to doesnt work, they will just change it." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school tries to sell the strange anatomy curriculum as a plus but it really isn't. There doesn't seem to be a strong cadaver program, so first year students do not get to dissect and instead learn from models and prosected bodies. Also, the course is 4 WEEKS LONG which is insanely stressful. In addition, the students only take Step 1 after their 3rd year and most opt to take Step 2 immediately a month after which can be stressful. They boast higher scores but it seems like the curriculum puts a lot of undue stress on the students. Also, FIU is a commuter school." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"Really loved the feel of the school- it gives off a vibe that students are happy and carefree and have access to endless resources. However, you could feel the newness of the program in a couple of things, especially in its ever-changing curriculum and interesting innovative changes to hide weaknesses to the program. I think its a perfectly good school for any student to attend and I would be excited to be admitted, but I am also wary of some of the potential obstacles in receiving an education there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendly and open staff and students. Dean is someone you wish you could be friends with after, and while you should relax and be yourself, remember you are also trying to impress them..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Gorgeous campus, relatively affordable tuition, expensive living costs (more to do with the area than the school)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, easy interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"School has allot of potential, and if living in a big busy city is your selling point, then FIU is great for you! The Deans try very hard to address student concerns, and do a pretty good job." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome school, awesome program, awesome people. Top of my list" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a new school. Doesn't have a reputation yet and I am not sure of the direction it's taking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day at this school bumped the school up in my list of choices. They did a great job of selling the strengths of the school (and there are many). Any concerns I had about the relative youth of the program were gone." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had low expectations so I was actually quite impressed with the school. It's definitely better than what I expected. New facilities and clinicals at a wide variety of hospitals throughout Miami was definitely a plus. However, when you compare it to more established medical schools it's deficient in some areas (like research opportunities which is very important if you want a shot at a competitive residency like derm. or rad.)." More from this Member | Report Response

"There will be deans and students in and out of the interview holding room all day. Use this opportunity to ask questions and get to know the faculty and students. Everyone was very enthusiastic and excited to talk to interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"great program, great school, friendly and supportive staff! I definitely recommend applying to this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"A really kind, altruistic, and awesome group of people with big plans for the future. They're still in the learning and growing phase, but I think FIU will be come into its own soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"it looks like a fine medical school, but just doesn't have the resources or reputation of a established medical school.....I think I will go here if I don't get in anywhere else (but hopefully I will)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I believe that FIU has a good chance to soon be among the top schools in the state, given the design of the curriculum and type of students recruited. With strong clinical sites and exciting opportunities for med students in research, community service and clinical experience, the school offers a really impressive opportunity." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think they need a lot of work in general to impress their interviewees more." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome Curriculum, very supportive faculty and staff, great community service and leadership opportunities, great chance to learn or improve your Spanish!" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you love the underserved south florida community, and want to stay in miami for awhile this school is for you!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school for an aspiring primary care doc, or anybody who wants to get into medicine out of a desire to help others. Too bad it is far from home and very expensive. Unless it's the only school I get into, I doubt I will go to FIU." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, very diverse location, excellent curriculum (so far), expensive" More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the school. Friendly staff and friendly interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview so I didn't know what to expect." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview - so I was nervous, but I think I kept it together fairly well. I really liked the school. My interviewers were two very funny guys who were definitely having fun interviewing MS0's. The day can be very long and tiresome - so if you're a coffee drinker, like myself, stock up - because there isn't any at the interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school! Some of the questions were tough but nonetheless I think it was a good interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"We took a tour of the school after the interview portion, which was great, because it was really hot outside and of course I was wearing a suit. They also gave us food while we were waiting to be interviewed and afterwards. The building that classes are in is very nice, and the students were all very friendly and open about talking to us." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 2 interviewers, one seems to ask ethical questions, while one seems to ask more "normal" questions like "Why FIU."" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have improved a lot since last cycle. It's very well organized and they have enormous support from the Miami community. I think it will end up being a decent program given the population it will be serving." More from this Member | Report Response

"I took an overnight flight and public transportations only - it saved me some money. Miami public transportation system is actually quite good - on time & affordable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school. Very unique, so not everyone will like it but those who do will love it :D" More from this Member | Report Response

"If anything the interview day made me want to go there even more!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I came away from this interview inspired by the school's commitment to community health and the inaugural class." More from this Member | Report Response

"Look into the NeighborhoodHELP program before you go for your interview... FIU is taking an interesting community based approach in their curriculum. Also, try to go to the 8 am interview if possible so you can relax and enjoy the rest of your day!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Matriculants will need a car for attendance. The facilities are not yet complete, but there is plenty of space for the students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Impressed with the staff and mission of the school, would love to go there if I could get the money somehow" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is amazing and it's an excellent opportunity to be a pioneer in South Florida medical education. I hope I get in here lol. And it's only 15 min from home WITH traffic, so I definitely wanna go here. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The afternoon interview session started at 11 AM. The day started with a brief introduction about the medical program and the unique aspects of the FIU curriculum. After the presentation, we were treated to lunch in the school cafeteria. Afterwards, I had a 45 minute break period before my interview at 1:45. The interview itself lasted 30 minutes and the day ended with a brief tour of the campus and a presentation by financial aid. The day was over by 4:15. " More from this Member | Report Response
