What impressed you positively?

"The day itself was very well organized. Their was a great "pep-talk" from a doctor about the importance of being a doctor and adding something to the body of knowledge (his focus was research, but he did not try to sell Miami in particular). The facilities are impressive. The trauma center is a hospital in itself - it has a triage to redirect patients to the appropriate section of E.R. " Report Response

"They interview only 250 applicants for 150 positions - getting an interview is a huge deal!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole day was well organized, with "guides" escorting us to interviews in different areas of the school. The interview itself was relaxed. The doctor who interviewed me was wearing scrubs, and treated it like a conversation. The tour was fairly comprehensive, and we had ample time to ask questions during it and lunch, when about 6 students joined us to eat. All the students were very positive and seemed happy and not faking it. The clinical training is excellent as well as the facilities. Fairly affordable housing (compared to LA) is available within 15-30 minutes, although a monthly parking fee is required. Of course, the surrounding area is beautiful! I left feeling incredibly enthusiastic about the school, much more so than before I arrived. " Report Response
