Not particularly the patient in the elevator but a patient in general. How do you react in such a situation? You are the 3rd year med student and a resident has diagnosed a patient with appendicitis butyou were just in there comforting the patient and didn't notice symptoms of such. You know the resident never actually checked on this patient. The attending has 2 min. to make a decision on the situation and asks you whether surgery is needed.

What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING! I loved this school! The admins were amazing and so invested in the day, we always had a faculty member or student with us, they have a homestay program with a dinner the night before so we can meet current students and interviewees to ask questions, they provided breakfast and lunch at the interview, they gave us rides to the airport after the interview if we needed them, the interviewers actually had personality, beautiful facilities, passionate students...overall it was spectacular." More from this Member | Report Response

"Attention to detail by faculty and students. They really put a lot of effort into interview day and it showed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The family atmosphere, everyone is so caring" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's vision for their students and their facilities. Student wellness initiatives were huge here. Available resources and facilities as well as overall environment were very impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything! The students and staff were so incredibly welcoming. The College of Medicine building was beautiful. I loved the integration of tech into the curriculum, buildings, and campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The positive tone of both of the interviews. They showed me that they were impressed with me, rather than drilling me and testing me" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back and encouraging throughout the day! Everyone on faculty and the students were great and welcoming" More from this Member | Report Response

"They genuinely cared about our welfare" More from this Member | Report Response

"Where do I begin? EVERYTHING. I absolutely loved this interview and school. Faculty, staff, students were all kind, friendly and extremely open. Dean German has a very ambitious vision and it is clearly coming to life. The school and surrounding "medical city" are growing and improving rapidly. Facilities are brand new, very high-tech and beautiful. Wide variety of teaching hospitals/environments for clinical years. Lots of time with students both the night before at a pre-interview dinner, during my home stay, and on the day of the interview. One of the most impressive things about the interview day was the level of transparency from the admissions office - REL told us exactly how and when admissions decisions are made." More from this Member | Report Response

"Rel is great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything - the staff, the facilities, the students. They do a very good job of selling their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"UCF COM is amazing. Dean German and all of the admissions staff and faculty truly care about the students. Every part of the medical school was created with students as first priority. Traveling to Celebration Hospital was a great experience on interview day. Incredibly laid back and stress-free. Wonderful school." More from this Member | Report Response

"So I interviewed here last friday and I was blown back. It was the most well organized and thorough interview I have attended to date, and I just have to write a review. This will be deja-vu for those who interviewed but those who are wondering whether to make the trip, I highly recommend you read this before you decide. The day started really early which I came to realize was because they had many many things in store for us. After arriving from seemingly the middle of nowhere the immense and impressive buildings appeared tall and proud. The inside was equally impressive and after a small breakfast and orientation, a general overview was given, standard fare. REL and his colleagues were extremely welcoming and very funny to listen to. The interviews were afterward, and although they were very nice and relaxed it was comparable to other schools. I did like how they gave some direction to the interviewers using standardized questions (which is also great for assuring a similar interview from student to student), but allowed the interviewers ample time to ask additional questions or let the conversation take its course. After the interviews we were shuttled to nearby Celebration Hospital where we were given a thorough tour of the facility lead by REL and a concierge from the Hospital. The tour was very impressive but the amazing part was when we were allowed to watch a minimally invasive robotic prostatectomy performed using the da Vinci machine. We were able to watch the entire surgery and afterwards the surgeon came out to meet us. As if this wasn't enough, we were then taken to a room full of da Vinci Trainers as well as laproscopic surgery trainers. We were then able to actually dive in and try our hands at 3 of the modules. This was above and beyond what any school has done, and especially for someone who is considering surgery, made a fantastic impression. The overall effort and final product of the interview day made it hard to believe this was only their 5th interview season as a medical school. They made every thing go so smoothly, and promptly took care of any problems that arose. On the way, our bus' A/C broke. It is Florida so it was a bit warm, REL apologized and said they'd have a new bus for the way home. Sure enough they did, and the ride was very enjoyable. The lunch was more than just thrown together sustenance, but was actually good food, well prepared and thought out. There was ample room and time for discussion with medical students during lunch and afterwards we had a tour of the facility. We were actually shown the majority of the campus, and this was the first interview for me where our tour guides had appropriate access to the areas of interest such as the anatomy lab. Believe it or not all of my previous tours the anatomy lab was either not intended for the tour (hrmm) or our guides didn't have badge access (understandable, but bummer). During the tour the facilities were very impressive, state of the art facilities with ample projectors and TV screens in classrooms, histology labs, anatomy labs, etc. Of interest was the obvious significance the administration provided in making learning as easy or enjoyable as possible. They have treadmills specifically designed for walking and reading/studying strategically positioned overlooking the nature preserve. The library fitted with plenty of couches as well as traditional tables with ample outlets/lighting. Also it is equipped with a white noise makers in the general area, as well as a large quiet area. Near the couches are plenty of lap cushions for your laptop with cup holders. The student lounge is big and well furnished, with pool table, ping pong, video games, kitchen, tables, counter, etc. The library has very few books (which means more seating) because all the books are available 24/7 online. The school provides you with an iPad and a laptop, preloaded with all the books you'll need for your courses. This is more impressive when you notice that the tuition and fees do not see a noticeable bump to cover these amenities, compared with similar schools that do not offer such things. Speaking of which, their combined tuition and fees are currently under 27K, which is astonishing without even considering the saved money on books. One final comment on money, the cost of living here is pretty cheap. Overall, I was clearly very impressed with the campus and the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"The awesome new facilities, the transparency of the admissions process, and the ability to build up the program for ourselves. Interviews were done first thing in the morning, so we were pretty relaxed on the tour and during the rest of the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interviewed by a physician that was new to the school who has been a residency director in a competitive field for 10 years. Seems like they have put together an impressive faculty. All cadavers are CT scanned before being dissected, all imaging is available one flat screens at end of dissection table. Facilities are beautiful, would be a nice environment to study in. Admissions committee is honest, up front on policy, and say it like it is. Dean German has a huge vision and it is being realized. A lot has already happened and a lot is going to happen in coming years. Good amount of prep time for step 1." More from this Member | Report Response

"tech and happiness of students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was so friendly. The dean really cares about the students." More from this Member | Report Response

"EVERYTHING. The facilities, curriculum, technology, staff, etc. Oh, and particularly the other interviewees--they were all people I could see myself being friends with." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, the curriculum, the enthusiasm of students and faculty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities, esp. gross anatomy labs. The awesomeness that is REL larkin director of admissions and his friendly attitude towards students. The interviewers who both seemed chill but were both surgeons in the community. The celebration hospital tour and witnessing of live robotic prostatic surgery." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff was AMAZING! The tour was AMAZING! the facilities are AMAZING! The anatomy lab is top-notch. The dean of the school came in and gave a speech to us interviewees which was very inspirational. The med students who we had lunch with were really nice and helpful. Celebration Hospital is beautiful- doesn't feel like a hospital more like a Disney hotel. The school is very open with how they base admissions decisions and keeps you updated on your status frequently unlike other schools. Once this school becomes accredited, it will definitely become the top medical school in the state. It's just the attitude the school has which is full of passion and drive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything! Amazing school, atmosphere, enthusiasm etc...." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff was so nice! The curriculum and staff look like they work together to cater it to each student" More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty much everything; Everyone was friendly, the school is moving very quickly with 2 new hospitals being built and the newly constructed medical school and research building. Also, playing with the da Vinci robot and the opportunity to see surgery was really cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"everything, especially REL & all admission office staffs. REL explained every detail of process very clearly" More from this Member | Report Response

"The organization of the information (especially for a first year class). The frankness of the admissions adviser who travels with you the entire day. Celebration hospital and the da vinci robot demonstration and practice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"EVERYTHING... How welcoming the faculty is, the technological opportunities that will be available, the beautiful (interior) design of the future COM building." More from this Member | Report Response

"the program and curriculum they have set up! it seems like one of the best opportunities to get early hands-on experience with dealing with patients." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is only one cafe in the building to get food but you can bring food or go across the street to the VA Hospital and eat at their cafeteria." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing on the school's part. It is quite humid in the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of a thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Driving to teaching hospitals, cannot just walk there" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lake Nona and the med campus are somewhat isolated from Orlando and the main UCF campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lake Nona is somewhat isolated from the rest of Orlando. I needed gas after the interview, closest gas station is 3-4 miles away. Clinical sites are in downtown, most students move to downtown for 3rd and 4th years, but I would really prefer not to have to move." More from this Member | Report Response

"Isolated campus - still, this leaves room to shape the school as a student, a positive." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"As with USF, it requires traveling for a lot of hospitals where you will have rotations and is not like the NE where you can do without a car. Still rather undeveloped in the surrounding areas. Thus too quiet at times. If u are a Northeastern person it may bore u the quietness of the school. But other then that nothing. The school has mostly positive vibe about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a little bit far to travel from my home state and back." More from this Member | Report Response

"none" More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the initial class. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the actual COM building won't be completed until the inaugural class' 2nd year." More from this Member | Report Response

"hard to see how the med school will be since it's not fiinished being built yet..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"To relax a bit more" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would love this school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interview was chill. The second interview as NOT chill. The second person was a devil's advocate so be prepared! I was not expecting a stress test, but I'm fairly certain that I experienced a purposeful stress test. So keep your composure, but be aware that you might be questioned and get a button pushed."

The interviewers aren't part of the admissions committee; they are actual clinicians in the community. I heard from the students that all of their interviewers, especially my two, were very laid back and just wonderful. Definitely did not feel like an interview, more of like a conversation."
