How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed AMCAS application, had an ex-committee member mock interview me, read everything on SDN, talked with friends who interviewed and attended the school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The size of the complex is awesome, but I was most impressed with the "attitude" or "feeling" of the students. Many random students went out of their way to say hello, offer good luck, or mention that it was a good choice, and that made me feel more comfortable. Dr. Hinkley is a funny and caring man, and very approachable. Agnes, the secretary, is also amazing and very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I am most concerned with safety and overwheming size of the city. That will be a difficult transition, and the hospital isn't the Ritz Carlton, but would provide outstanding clinic exposure (which you get first semester). Also be prepared for sweltering heat. It is hotter than Hades." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Prepare yourself by studying the area, I was completely lost. Forget about parking, and leave EARLY so that you find it OK. Try to arrive at 8:15, any earlier and they may not let you in the door (security stopped me)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed the school, it is amazing and I have many friends there that love it. It is expensive. It is almost twice what you will pay at the other Florida schools, so you must decide how important that is to you. For me, I want nothing more than to get in, and the experience you will get in a city like Miami will make it a worthy lifelong investment. " Report Response
