What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are very impressive, many of which are amazing like LifeLink, the transplant facility that works in conjunction with Tampa General Hospital. Mr. Larkin was also a very impressive person, the director of admissions. He was very honest and very friendly, like most of the faculty and administration. Class rooms are completely "wired" Students love it there, especially my student interviewer who gave up acceptances at top schools to come to USF. The teaching seems to be great too. Pretty impressed overall." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There might be something, but I can't really think of anything that would prevent me from taking an acceptance here and run." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How relaxed the day is. Its a long day, you'll be there from 7:45-3:30, but its a relaxed day, so be relaxed!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had an interview with a surgeon and a medical student, while some had two faculty members, either MD or PhD. They ask basic interview questions because it is closed-file so be prepared for that. For me, this interview was much more conversational than other interviews I have been to, but I can't say that its a good or bad thing since every school looks for different things. But you must come up with at least three intelligent questions to ask your interviewers, they seem to almost expect it from you. Again, be relaxed! " Report Response
