What impressed you positively?

"Students were super nice, facilities were brand new." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Room where you're in most of the time is freezing (even in a suit)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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.)."
