What was the most interesting question?

"There wasn't a particular question that I was asked that stood out in my mind. The entire interview flowed as a conversation and I was allowed to direct the topic of conversation. The faculty member doing the interview went through my extra curricular activities listed on my AMCAS and asked about a few of them. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why did you apply to the University of Miami? I wouldn't consider any of the questions I was asked to be hard, but considering I am an out of state resident, I had to think about this one for a moment." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read the newspaper during my flight and I skimmed over their website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Although the University of Miami is not considered a "top tier" school," I really enjoyed my stay because the people I encountered were extremeley friendly and hospitable. The student hosts I stayed with offered to pick me up from the airport, which was beyond their responsibility. The friendly personalities were evident from the students to the administration. The Dean of Admissions is awesome and he comes across as being an advocate for the students. The administration people are very warm and welcoming as well. I am wondering if the bubbly personalities have any correlation to the sunny weather. Anyhow....a fourth year student gave us a tour and I was amazed by the fact that people stopped and smiled to say hi as we toured Jackson hospital. The capacity of the trama center is impressive and the Jackson ER is unique in that it is separated into different departments. Jackson is such a huge, busy hospital that patients are triaged and then sent to a particlar part of the ER. I think Jackson hospital is full of excellent opportunities to gain direct hands on clinical experience even before you begin your rotations. The University of Miami appears to be an excellent insitution that promotes generating clinically prepared candidates for residency. Apparrently last year was the first year they began admitting out of state residents and in the next few years they hope that as much as 40% of their entering class will be non-Florida residents. I suppose this change is to push the University of Miami towards becoming a nationally recognized institution rather than being only known as a Florida med school. There are lots of things to do in Miami and I really liked the cultural and ethnic diversity of the area. Being a California resident, I would like to ideally remain here, but if I can't, then Miami is just as good except my family wouldn't be near by. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The humidity bothered me a bit and the sporadic momentary showers were annoying, but I think I could get used to it. Everything in Miami is air conditioned anyhow." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Compared to other interview experiences, this has been one of the more enjoyable trips. The interview was very laid back and the people conducting the interview conveyed an interest in what I was saying. " Report Response
