What do you like most about this school?

"The supportive faculty, great teaching, how everyone seems to go the extra mile. I'm not sure what the other reviewer experienced but we never have had any 8 week modules. All of them are 6 weeks except for two (now)- no test is ever worth 90%- the most was 85% but the other 15% are "gimme points" for essentially showing up. For first year, all you need to succeed is powerpoints, no textbooks. Second year, like most places, you should be reading Robbins. We have a great student academic support office which offers free tutoring, review courses for almost every module AND step 1, and one on one and small group help." | Report Response

"Nothing, it's horrible!!," | Report Response

What do you like least about this school?

"Nothing." | Report Response

"No teavhing takes place for many classes, you're uust on your own for so many classes and there's just one cu,ulative test at the end of an 8 week module that 's 90 percent of your grade. Please don't go here!!!," | Report Response

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"Do not go to ucf com!!!! Unless you like to learn on your own, don't go here. If you're someone who relies on powerpoints to learn the materia, you will be totally out of luck. Don't let the charisma and shining building make you a decision YOU Will REGRET and ruin your medical career. There's no help offered if you're not the type of learner who learns on their own by reading textbooks. Tests are very commulative to the point that one test is 90 percent of an 8 week course, which is insane for medical school. Curriculum is not well put together at all. Oh and they want to make the tests more cumulative!! They want to combine it so that one test covers 24 weeks of material!! There are also no scribes or note takers for any classes, which by itself is a reason to avoid this place!!, ," | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
