How did you prepare for the interview?

"Closed-file interview, so just make sure to bring up points that you want the interviewer to know about you." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school's facilities are really impressive! I came thinking that USF was maybe top-10 on my list of schools, but right now it's at least top-3. Go with an open mind, and really take a look around you. The admissions staff were incredibly nice, and every student we met took time to speak with us. I think it would be a lovely place to study medicine for the next four years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The comparisons to the other Florida schools. I don't think it was necessary. USF can stand on its own without making any reference to other schools." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class was full by the time we interviewed (end of January) and has been for some time, apparently." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"USF is a great school with lots to offer! I think you have to really walk around and see if you feel comfortable there, and if you can imagine yourself studying there for the next few years. Tampa is a great city (home of the 2002 World Champion Bucs!!!) and living there would be a lot of fun. Be ready for the longest interview day you have ever experienced, and don't sweat the interviews. As one of my interviewers told me, they are just trying to get a "gut feeling" as to whether or not you will make a good physician." Report Response
