What are your general comments?

"Great weather, outgoing faculty, plenty of clinical and research opportunities. For everyone not from Florida, go check out all the great sites (coconut grove, south beach)...Miami is absolutely beautiful. Definately stay with a student as well. The host I stayed with was great, he even cooked me dinner. From hearing the other interviewees talk, it sounded like they also had great hosts. The interview was very laid back. Just be yourself and know why you want to enter medicine. As for the curriculumn, Miami is currently undergoing changes in their curriculumn and should have everything solidified for next year's incoming class. The sophomores that we had the opportunity to talk to said that it should be pretty good. Their classes are in modules, so you learn one subject for a couple of weeks, take its exam, then you switch the subject, and so on. So basically, you are concentrating on one thing at a time and not bombarded by many different classes at once. They also have "societies" that you will be assigned to should you become a student there. It's a system where second years tutor first years, third years help second years ready themselves for boards, fourth years help third years with their clerkship, etc etc. You'll also have a lot of volunteer opportunities. There are centers there such as the Mailman center for children and activities such as their annual Health Fair where you head out to the keys and provide care to people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it eceive it. This is pretty cool in that you actually get to begin working with patients right when you enter medical school. To close: I enjoyed my visit at Miami, I learned a lot about the school that I didn't know before. Coming into the interview, Miami was probably my 3rd or 4th choice, now it's probably my top."
