What are your general comments?

"I had an overall positve experience at UM. I didn't know too much about the school when I applied, but after being there for one day I know I could be very happy there. The students were wonderfully welcoming, stopping in to the admissions office throughout the day to say hi and answer any questions I had. They were all very excited about the upcoming Health Fair on the Florida Keys. I felt their sense of enthusiasm about the school. Dr. Hinkley and the rest of the admissions staff was great. He was very nice, being open and honest with us about the process and urged us to contact him with any questions/concerns. My interviewer was very friendly as well. We had more of a conversation than an "interview" and he asked some specific questions about my application. Other questions were more general. The luncheon at the end of the day with the med students gave me the opporunity to ask ANY questions that I had, in a low stress environment. (Although the whole day was pretty low stress!) Throughout the day I had the chance to really get to know UM." Report Response
