I really want to live in Florida because it's so warm. Some people may see the heat/humidity as a negative, but not me. The school is gorgeous. You're in the same building as future dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, etc... There are tons of things to like about this school, I encourage anyone to investigate further.

Very supportive environment and really want you to succeed as a doctor! Evryone says the Anatomy faculty is wonderful! " More from this Member | Report Response

They were at our breakfast, tour, lunch, and many just stopped by to talk to us while we were waiting around for our interviews!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were superb and the students seemed to really enjoy NSU and were happy they had chosen to go there. The dress code and attendance policy is not as strict as is made out to be in the information packet.

Breakfast was offered while a third year medical student spoke to us about what our first two years would be like there. I liked the fact that lunch was prepared for us.

"Everything was impressive. The Campus is beautiful and high tech. Palm trees line the driveways, computers are everywhere and monitors hang from the ceiling in every lab. Technology is obviously integrated into a strong curriculum that prepares the student early for the interaction with patients (IGC, integrated generalist curriculum). Harvey, a manikin that mimics heart and lung sounds is available to all students and gives an edge to NSU students with regard to auscultation skills. Nothing I could say describes the new library, IT IS AWSOME! Wireless web and laptop computers for check out. The faculty and staff are committed to the betterment of the student. Overall the facility and program exceeded every expectation! The students are happy and very supportive of interviewee’s, they boosted my confidence and made me less nervous! Thank you to Lynne Cawley for your “pep” talk and making me feel welcome. Also thank you to Mary, Dr. Simpson, Dr. Greber and Dr. Aye and the students of NSUCOM, I enjoyed the time I spent with you all. I can’t wait to study at NSUCOM.

"There were several impressive things during the visit. The library was beautiful and huge. Wireless internet is available on campus and within a 2 mile radius of the school. All the health profession division buildings are connected so each building blends together seemlessly. You may think it is one large building but in reality it is many buildings linked together. Apartments are available in close proximity to the school. One is next to it and another is across the street, plus many more in the immediate area. The HARVEY program was simply amazing."

"high cost of out of state tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel like the health professions school has so many students and they are struggling to accommodate with parking, living, amenities" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great impression, nothing popped out at me as negative." More from this Member | Report Response

"That students are required to attend all lectures (have to slide ID card). Some of the student reps said this isn't exactly true, but that professors notice when students are missing. There is a dress code of either scrubs or business casual, which may be a problem in the dead heat of summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"bad biochem department, having to wear scrubs everyday" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewers was very negative and condescending, but to be expected (I guess)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The actual medical school facilities and resources were not very impressive. My group only got to meet with medical students for a little less than an hour while eating lunch. My interviewers never gave me the chance to ask them questions and neither did anybody else throughout the entire experience. Life and rent is expensive in south Florida which is not very appealing." More from this Member | Report Response

"A reoccuring theme from all students we me with was, this is the worst medical biochemistry course in the western hemisphere. I was impressed with the frankness and candor from the students, but concerned that school has not improved this class with every person admitting it was terrible."

"high cost of living in florida :(" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer was purposely hard on me. I realized this after several other applicants went into the same room and came out freaked out. I talked to a couple med students there, and they also said that the interviewer did that on purpose and is in actuality, a really nice guy. Also, my interview was really short. I wish it had been a longer so that I could get more of my personality across. I also found out later that we were running behind so the interviewers were told to hurry it up. I wish they had just cut the time out of lunch instead." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing real to report" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was a bit rushed, and I felt that I didn't have a lot of time to express myself sufficiently. The other interviewees felt the same way however; we think it's because there were so many of us so they were getting behind in time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. The attendance policy is a bit silly, but all things considered there are much worse things a school could impose." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers' lackluster personalities" More from this Member | Report Response

"NO COFFEE! I flew half way across the country at significant expense, and this was the ONLY school that didn't have pastry and caffine...that's just cruel. Also cramming me into a tiny waiting room with a bunch of frighten younger applicants all in the same interview suit, most talking sports, few talking medicine... well, that could have been better orchestrated: Put us in a meeting room, with a skirted sideboard, rugella and good coffee.

"The interview was VERY short and basic. There weren't any pointed questions, just broad sweeping ones. I didn't have a chance to talk about numerous aspects of my file and it didn't seem like the interviewers really cared about much of my file. I felt like a 15-20 minute interview for such an extensive travel and application process undermined me and my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewers, did not take enough time to go over my file.. they did not realize I was a returning student... and was asking about grades I got 6 years ago. The one doctor kept calling me a different nick name." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is in a congested area, alot of traffic, also not many good places to eat around the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mandatory 3 months fo rural medicine, mandatory attendence, dress code" More from this Member | Report Response

"see above, also the students don't really seem that enthused about the school. The school seems to be a good facility, but after my experience I would never consider going there, especially if they allow their student or future-students to be treated so badly by a professor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic in surrounding areas, but mainly due to construction during rush hour(s). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"The INSANE traffic! One student told us it takes him 45 min. every morning to drive the 8 miles from his apartment. Also, I didn't really like the HUGE OMM and histo labs (row after row of microscopes and OMM tables). Makes it seem too big and overwhelming." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students complained about having bad profs." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student taking us on our tour was complaining about the program the entire time, which did not give me much confidence in the program. An MD/ MPH degree is offered at no additional cost but the med students said how the MPH degree was a waste of time and they were not learning anything. The entire day was very disorganized and they made no efforts to make it more comfortable for the interviewees. The campus was also very huge and spread out, I did not feel a sense unity for the medical school. Some of the classes also are taken with the pharmacy students so Anatomy for example has 400+ students in it. So overall, the attitude of the admissions people/interviews/med students was very negative and their program was extremely substandard when compared to other medical schools" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"one of the interviewers acted like a bad cop" More from this Member | Report Response

"South Florida is SO HOT." More from this Member | Report Response

"Was very disappointed that the staff seemed to play the whole "DO is the only true patient-oriented doctor" game. Although this is mostly based off of my rather older gentlemen interviewers, I still got the impression that this mentality is prevalent. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Students (not ambassadors) seemed less friendly than at other schools...but they had exams today so they may have been preoccupied. 10+ students per cadaver in Anatomy lab. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The large multitude of students and cars. Reminded me of my undergrad. Interviewers could have been a little nicer and, you know, at least act like your paying attention and give a damn (at least pretend a little?). The "bad cop" interviewer, come on, the day is nerve-racking enough). " More from this Member | Report Response

"1 cadaver with 2 groups working on it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dress code for students and attendance policy" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the interviewer had asked me where I was from excited me and I went on to explain my background, however, when they started talking about my religious views and the riots between palestine and isreal I felt I was in a politics class rather than in a med school interview.... What does that have to do with medicine ? As a doctor I am unbiased and I felt that these doctors in front of me were very very biased people...Very sad." More from this Member | Report Response

"kinda rude ppl" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers never looked up at me (I think he was playing the "bad cop" role). Also, South Florida living is not cheap." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Nova is pretty much just a graduate school, not much of a collegiate atmosphere, which is not necessarily a bad thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not the typical urban, built with city hospital, school. Instead its in the suburbs like you are going to undergrad again. Not really bad or good, just different." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very distant. One of the interviewers went out of his way to correct my pronounciation of "osteopathy" and then later pronounced it the same way I had earlier. Played good-cop, bac-cop instead of getting to know me. I also do not like south florida, if you could take this school out from it and put it in another state, it would be the perfect school. You also cant leave fl on your 3rd year so you're stuck. " More from this Member | Report Response

"During the actual interview, they seemed to question everything I said and acted uninterested in me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview. They seemed to question everything I said and the way they came across felt like disdain for my application rather than an interest in me as an applicant. They also seemed bothered by my applying to both allopathic and osteopathic schools. I felt I handled myself well, but did not feel that they would hold me in highest regards to the admissions committee. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, you can't take this school out of South Florida. Bummer." More from this Member | Report Response

"the length of the whole day (i was really worn out by the end)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers I had played "good" cop/"bad" cop. So I don't know how this interview went. We didn't get to see much of the facilities (like the anatomy lab)." More from this Member | Report Response

"8-10 students per cadaver. It may work out if the majority in the group don't want to be the surgeon. " More from this Member | Report Response

"there was no full-campus tour; a lot of down-time where you're just talking to the other interviewees (which was great b/c I had a fun bunch to talk to, but bad b/c you spend a lot of money on an interview and you don't want to sit around)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It felt too big. The med students seemed to get lost amid their hundreds of classmates and the dental students with whom they share gigantic lectures. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview itself...they didn't like the fact that i got interviews at other allo and osteo schools. also they questioned everything that I said..which really made think if I was talking in english or not" More from this Member | Report Response

"We were not given a tour of the entire campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Would have liked a campus tour. The traffic everywhere in Fort Lauderdale is TERRIBLE. High housing costs (compared to what I'm used to at least). The relative lack of research opportunities. The fact that the students were so against the "dress code" (it consists of wearing scrubs, not too extreme) and the attendence policy (come on, you're in medical school, you don't know that you might miss some small thing that could maybe help you save someone's life someday. Plus you're paying a LOT of money, you might as well get what you pay for). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Time was not so well planned out... I don't want to hear.. okay lets watch this tape till someone come to take you.. there. It is not useful... it is just a gap filler. We did not get a tour around campus... just the med building and even than it was short. I am sure it is all new, clean and high tech. Students where open and honest when asked questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"dress code, required class attendence" More from this Member | Report Response

"Mandatory attendance enforced with card swiping along with long days of lecture cutting personal study time, even though the students seemed to love their school you could tell that most weren’t happy about the new attendance policy. 10 people to a cadaver (two groups of 5 alternating dissections and teaching other group). The tour was very rushed and the professor who was supposed to talk about the first two years at NSU didn’t show up and neither did the Dean for “wrap up with the Dean” later on!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the boring financial aid talk, who wants to think about that when you are first worrying if you got in or not " More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like I was in an ant farm, there were green ants, blue ants, and then normal ants. Everyone was in scrubs. I felt that would be defeating of the "dress code" concept. It certainly didn't seem very academic." More from this Member | Report Response

"The administration was very unorganized. One person who was supposed to speak to us didn't show up. But this could all have been due to a change of staff that was also occuring that day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lunch was lacking and breakfast was non-existent (good thing I ate first)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost." More from this Member | Report Response

"10 students per body during anatomy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Being the first group of interviewers they were somewhat disorganized from the itinerary they had provided us with." More from this Member | Report Response

"You have to wear scrubs and lab coat every day to school - it is a manditory dress code. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students did seem a bit stressed- they were in the midst of exams. So many students that you also have to share your cadaver with a whole other group- so you don't get to do/see all of the dissection!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ft. Lauderdale can be expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most the rotations are in Florida. In anatomy class there are two groups, so you're not a part of all the disections." More from this Member | Report Response

"The length of the day, way to long as compared to the brievity of the interview. I felt the interview could have been longer to get more of a feel for the candidates." More from this Member | Report Response

"The high cost of living." More from this Member | Report Response

"An anatomy professor Dr. TU who was very strange and moving around the room while other 2 persons interviewing me. He also said we have to respect him.....ask him no stupid question.....odd or what ?" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very pleased overall and there was nothing that did not impress me." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students seemed a little stressed out and high-strung...a little more uptight than i expected. overall i just didnt get a very good vibe from my tour guide. There were some nice MS1s who came and talked to us and they were really nice--kinda wished they had given the tour instead. Cost of living in Ft Lauderdale is expensive...and the ppl in FL are kinda rude to be honest" More from this Member | Report Response

"No gym, attendance policy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The technology, or lack thereof. SDN would have you believe that this school is way above the curve, technologically speaking, but I didn't see this at all. Laptops are not required, and the number of students who regularly carries them is in the single digits. In my opinion, this is a pretty low-tech school. Not necessarily in a bad way. There are ample computers available, and the whole campus is wireless. But unlike other schools, you don't have your textbooks online, and you won't be following along with Powerpoint slides on your laptop in lectures. If you want amazing technology, go to VCOM. The anatomy lab is nowhere near the caliber of that at VCOM, but again, a very hard act to follow. The positives FAR outweigh the negatives." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about the school was bad. But I thought people in FLA were generally rude. Being from the midwest I'm probably just too used to a more welcoming atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing... I went into this process with a positive attitude and came out of it with one too. It's what you make of it! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing I wouldn't find at any other school. I had a great experience. I was able to sit in on a full day of classes (get permission before the start of each lecture/lab) and was able to see what classes were like. I enjoyed each one and look foward to attending if accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students that I met seemed extremely stressed. During the tour of the building we went into the first year lecture hall and was so unimpressed with the 2 minutes of Microbiology lecture I heard. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students hate their school...Every M1 who I spoke with said if they could go back and change they would...There seems to be a mandatory attendance policy in which the students have to "scan" their ID cards every hour for attendance credit. " More from this Member | Report Response

"NSU seems a little behind in the technology aspect. Most other schools I have visited require you to have a laptop and give you electronic information for class, and I like that. Also, there is very little research going on at this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Board scores were not that great" More from this Member | Report Response

"Are you kidding me? Well, come to think of it, the tour after the interview was kinda lengthy and boring, and I was not able to sleep properly the night before, so I was hating every minute of it.

"The exercise facility needs some work. However a new complex is to be constructed very soon! If half as much attention is placed into the design and construction of the exercise facility as was placed into the library the place will be spectacular. Bally’s is across the street."

"No real gym on campus for workouts. Right now there is a small facilty. I was told it was to be tore down in August and a new building built that would be much larger and would meet the NCAA rules, so I expect it to be huge. Didn't really find Fern that great. She really got on my nerves. Kind of freaked me out. Don't stay at the Best Western. They denied me shuttle service, but allowed 2 other students to get it. I didn't find that out till after I had arrived. They also weren't very accomodating for my wife who asked for a late check out. I would stay somewhere else if I were to go there again. It is close to the school though, so that might outweigh the bad for some people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't get to view the OPP, OMT rooms" More from this Member | Report Response

"You will be given a list of your interviewers' names and e-mail addresses at the end of the day. We're informed that both interviewers will be friendly.

The public bus is wayyyy cheaper than a cab ($1.25/ride) and the schedule can be found on google maps." More from this Member | Report Response
