"Everyone was entirely too nice. Mr. Larkin made this an absolutely stress-free day. Also, Tampa General has some awesome views of the bay. It was nice to see other areas besides the med school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviews seemed a little disorganized. For example, my first interviewer said he had not received the forms he was supposed to fill out about me, some of the interviews were rescheduled on the fly, etc. In the end, it all worked out though. Also, the school facilities were adequate, but not impressive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, great experience. We were bussed to LifeLink for a tour and to Tampa General for our interviews. Both of my interviewers were very friendly and conversational. There was food everywhere, so come hungry. We changed locations often, but I don't think we were ever more than 10 meters away from a bagel. A little long, but very low stress day. " Report Response
