What impressed you positively?

"Students all seem very friendly and positive about the school. Dean Hinkley seemed very open to receiving feedback from us, which impressed me. Great clinical exposure, lots of opportunities for research, seems like everything you can hope to get out of med school is available if you just seek it out. All in all, it struck me as a great place to go to school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Honestly, not much. The school is not in the best area, but that shouldn't be surprising. There's a small free weights gym for students to use, but otherwise no rec facilities available unless you go to the undergrad campus in Coral Gables." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Apparently the traffic in Miami is even worse than the traffic in California. Who knew?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was held with one faculty member and was fairly conversational and low stress. She asked a wide variety of questions, but nothing too off the wall that really through me for a loop. Besides the standard questions gauging my knowledge and exposure to healthcare, she was interested in determining who I was as a person and whether I was happy and well-adjusted socially. I thought it was a good idea to ask these types of questions at an interview. Miami seems to like students who are well-rounded instead of gunner stress cases." Report Response
