What impressed you positively?

"curriculum, including the patient contact during years 1 and 2 as well as the simulated patients; Moffitt, the cancer hospital/research center, is a beatiful facility and very state-of-the art in terms of treatments and integrating technology into day-to-day practice (they have PCs in every exam room and are moving to electronic charts); students were really friendly, and not in a showy way (ie, one just randomly came up to me and started a friendly chat); overall atmosphere seemed very "family-like" and the administrators come across as rather parental over the students (in a good way)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the campus is ugly (drab colors, boring architecture... you can tell the school was built in the 1960s); they compared themselves to UF and UM a bit too much - we know it's a good school or we wouldn't be interviewing there" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Lunch sandwiches come with mayo on them. This is becoming a common theme for me, so maybe someone in an admissions office will catch on and request that the caterers bring condiments on the side. A boy can only dream..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are two CLOSED FILE interviews... I mean, they don't know a thing except your name. I had one with a clinical faculty professor and my other with a 4th year student. Both were extremely laid back and they just seemed to want to get to know me. I got asked a fair number of questions having little to do with medicine and more to just find out how I converse. " Report Response
