What are your general comments?

"The day was very informative and they do a great job selling the school. I've applied to a lot of big name schools, but UF is my first choice now. Robyn Sheppard is terrific- such a sweetheart, but you probably already know that if she's called to tell you you've gotten an interview. The orientation gives you a lot of important info about UF, but I would have liked it to come later in the day- it takes a long time to actually get to your first interview. I guess they're trying to warm you up first (sort of a rolling start), but you might have to wait almost 4 hours from the start of the day before you get to the first interview. Both of the interviewers, however, we're extremely down-to-earth, humble guys (even though they're both heavy-hitters in their fields) and the interviews were very relaxing and conversational. I actually wanted more time for both of them because I was having such a good time. My best advice would be to RELAX and be yourself- its not necessarily what you say, but how you present yourself that's most important. " Report Response
