What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Hinkley and the admissions office staff are very nice and helpful. Hinkley explains things thoroughly and is very concerned about us having a good experience, understanding everything about the school, etc. The med students were nice and talkative; they were enthusiastic, but not high-strung stress cases. They had great things to say about the school and experiences at Jackson. It was very nice to hear from them about their feelings about the school, housing, living in Miami, volunteer projects, school debt, etc." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The worst thing about the day was walking around in the heat in a suit, getting sweaty right before the interview. (It would be nice if the interview invite specified business casual dress to make the interviewees more comfortable...) I also would have liked a more extensive tour of campus and Jackson...we just peaked in the ER. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I would recommend staying with a student. I didn't and I think I would have gotten a better feel for the school and students if I had. If you stay at a hotel, ask about parking availability and cost. Bring plenty of money for cabs. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We met at 9, Dr. Hinkley gave a talk about the school, then there was a talk about financial aid, then some of us went on a tour while others had interviews, then vice versa, next was lunch with med students, then another discussion with Mr. Hinkley. We were out by 2. Overall, it was a good experience. Very low stress. I left with an even better impression of the school. " Report Response
