What impressed you positively?

"Without a doubt, the most impressive aspect of UF's medical program is their student body. Every student I talked with seemed so positive and enthusiastic. Students are also more than willing to help each other out and their is non of the typical "I can't help you because you are my competition." Aside from the students, the Admissions office was more than helpful with everything. Lectures were kept short and to the point, and staff went out of their way to make sure you were calm and relaxed." Report Response

"Students are very active in atheltics and the board scores are phenomenal. A very large percent of students score above the 90% percentile." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I have to say kudos to the UF COM admissions office. As a current Gator, I knew UF COM was a great school, but the interview experience far exceeded my expectations. The interviewers are not out to get you. They are more interested in your personality and what makes you tick. For anyone worrying about this interview, you shouldn't. It is more like talking with a friend than being interviewed. The interview is from 10:30 until about 5:20 but it's not a long day at all. Also, even though the interviews are an hour long, you actually might find that it is too short, so don't be worried about how "long" an hour seems. Just be yourself and more than likely you'll have a great time. Also, be prepared to talk about your essays as most interviewers took a good amount of time asking the applicants to expand on stuff they wrote about." Report Response
