"Who is my hero and why?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"As a followup question, I was asked for some details on a class I'd taken more than a year ago. I wasn't quite ready for that." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site, read my stuff, read the website, thought long and hard about what I wanted to say during my very long drive to Gainesville" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I think the most important thing I took away from my visit was that UF seems like an excellent place to learn if you want to be a practicing physician. Every last student I talked to mentioned how great the teachers were. Students at this schools do very well on their boards, and get good residency matches. I came in not expecting that I'd want to go there for med school, but I left knowing that I'd be very happy if that's where I end up. Also, if warm sunshine is your thing, this place has plenty of that." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospital tour wasn't much. It's a long day. Best to just let us leave an hour earlier. Also, the lunch. The sandwiches had just about every condiment under the sun on them. And picking apart your food probably isn't the best way to make a good impression. Then again, maybe I'm just a picky eater." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I can't find my way driving around Gainesville. I got lost every time I got in my car, and was 10 minutes late for the interview. Also, traffic is horrendous. I would aim to get there a half hour early." Report Response
