What are your general comments?

"Wonderful. I had known that UF was my top choice in FL merely because of reputation,location, and the power house of a teacing hospital, but I learned so much more at the interview. The faculty and students we met impressed everyone in my group. I was suprised at the other interviewees though. Everyone was tense and shy. I dont know whether that is a good thing in their eyes or not, but i was defintly not nervus or shy. It was my first interview and my first time seeing a hospital like that and i was extremly happy."
