What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Shands Hospital is basically a mid-sized hospital in a little back woods Florida town. Everyone seemed intent on telling me how great it was. Personally, I didn't see any advantage of going to UFCOM other than it's cheap in comparison to other schools. Maybe you get what you pay for!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The Admissions staff were very friendly. But once out of the office things got really "pro-forma" including the student tour which was conducted by a student who seemed to be doing me a favor. I think UFCOM is a good school to attend if you're a Florida resident (cheap tuition) and plan to spend your career in a little rural town treating people just like yourself." Report Response
