What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty at UF are amazing!! Their energy is contagious and I was on a total high all day! There is a true sense of camaraderie at this school - everyone seems to genuinely want to help their peers - they're not cut-throat. I left Gainesville with UF #1 on my list." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the shared student spaces were a little unexciting. Then again, this was my first interview so I have nothing to compare them with." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"UF conducts some student-run interviews which I had always assumed would be great and totally relaxing - but I found it to be just the opposite. I thought it was intimidating and a bit patronizing. Plus, my student was writing comments during the interview which made me self-conscious. My faculty-run interview, on the other hand, went extremely well. It was close-file and it flowed like a conversation." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UF is an incredible school, GREAT student body and faculty, the students are extremely well prepared for their boards, and you can't beat the in-state tuition!!" Report Response
