How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"This was the first and only interview that actually felt like one. I was asked questions about my character, my reasons for going into medicine, my goals as a practicing physician, how I would deal with ethical issues, etc. It's actually what most students expect on an interview when they are preparing for medical school interviews. It was nice to actually have a conversation that showed that I had some depth as an applicant. That was very impressive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student tour. It was terrible. It was not very informative, and it seemed to be very last minute. I was not impressed at all with the perception of the school that I got, but fortunately, I had many other opportunities to view the school in a positive light. However, had that been my first and only impression of UM, I might have been very put off." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UM has some pros and cons. It's not a bad school and I feel that it is well on its way to national recognition. Its location provides excellent teaching opportunities and it tends to draw very capable students who may have gone to elite institutions for undergrad, but because of their Florida residency, have decided to stay in state for medical school. Still, it's a work in progress and its age works against it in ranking and competing with other medical schools. I found in later encounters, that many of the students are not happy there. This is probably due in large part to some changes in the curriculum and in general, that are still taking place. Just do your research, but it's not a bad school to consider for medical training.
