What are your general comments?

"I had an extremely positive experience at University of Miami School of Medicine. The people were SO helpful and friendly. Dr. Hinkley gave us our orientation presentation, Mr. Garcia gave us a financial aid presentation, then we went on a tour of the facilities with both a third year and first year student (some people interviewed first), next came the interview (which is very relaxed - just be yourself), and then lunch with the students (lunch was very good and the students were enthusiastic and honest), and then Dr. Hinkley gave us our closing pep-talk. They got us out of there by 2pm so we could try to beat the rush hour traffic. I was extremely impressed with the program and atmosphere at UM overall. " Report Response
