What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything. The clinical exposure you can get as a first year is great, Jackson is amazing, the research opportunities are incredible, the weather is great, the students are very friendly, the quality of life seems good there. Since they've implemented changes in the curriculum 2 years ago, when we start school the problems with the new curriculum will have been ironed out. There are a lot of opportunities to work with underserved populations (Health Fair in the Keys, trips to Haiti during the break) " Report Response

"Nothing, really. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How laid back the interview is. I was expecting to get grilled (my last couple were like that)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Miami is a great school with excellent clinical settings, incredible research opportunities, and lots of volunteer opportunities as well. The students are friendly and happy. There's a lot you can do there if you take the initiative. Jackson is huge! They match to some pretty competitive places (those that choose to leave UM - something like half stay there for residency). Before I interviewed there Miami was probably 3rd or 4th on my list. After the interview, it's tied for 1st." Report Response
