What impressed you positively?

"The students, faculty, administration are all extremely friendly, open and honest. The students seem like they work hard but also have time to enjoy themselves because of a modified curriculum that decreases lecture time. They only have one single class at a time which can go for just a couple weeks to several weeks. The clinical exposure available at Jackson Memorial is incredible- it is the 2nd busiest hospital in the nation. The students say that you can do more at Jackson as a Med student than a lot of other places, but I think this is true of any public hospital in a diverse urban area. Jackson will see anybody with or without insurance, and it is funded by a half cent sales tax. Miami has a very diverse population- it serves as a gateway into the US from many foreign countries, and the population is 60% Hispanic. There are a lot of opportunities to go on medical trips to countries in the Carribbean and in the Florida Keys. The University now looks favorably upon out of state applicants because it is trying to gain national recognition- (which obviously is good for out of staters " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"but I sensed a small amount of surprise from Miami students when I said I was out of state- a common response was that they were surprised because there are very few places for Florida residents as it is in Florida schools.- (But really I can't do anything about that) There really wasn't any thing very negative about the whole experience, I got the impression that there was very little in the way of research available there, but I'm more interested in the clinical opportunities, so it is fine with me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That wearing a suit and pantyhose in 80 degree Miami weather can be an ugly experience. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview day was great!!!!! Everyone was seemed happy to be there and friendly including the people working in the admissions office. Stress free interview- she spent most of the time selling the school, rather than me selling my self. I'd love to go to school here. Don't stress over this, just enjoy the day! " Report Response
