What impressed you positively?

"Large facility, well organized, nice people, happy students, Gainesville is great, reasonable tuition, top rated school, good preparation for the board..UF is great!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was concerned by the difficulty getting a chair in the clinics to get enough experience. You are assigned to groups and each group gets x number of chairs in each clinic to use. You have to talk amongst the group to see who gets each chair and when. What if your patient doesn't show? What if they need a specific order of work and you can't get a chair in the clinic? Some other schools asssign each student a chair that they can always count on to be able to work at. Scheduling and getting enough practice seems difficult at UF. Thats the impression I got from some students I talked to, but most had nothing but positive to say. Also I may be misinformed so ask around and find out for yourself! Everyone was very nice!"
