What are your general comments?

"The medical school interview experience at UF is great. I'm living in Gainesville right now and really hadn't put UF at the top of my list b/c of the town (desire for more metropolitan area), but after the interview I think UF is at the top. I've been on other interview trips, and UF has a great student body (much happier/friendly than other schools). UF's board scores are incredible, which demonstrate the strength of the well-known faculty. The two interviews were also very laid-back and conversational. Some challenging questions, but it made for good discussion. This was the first interview I had where the faculty, instead of ask me questions where I had to defend my opinion, actually complemented my file and discuss how strong my application was. UF doesn't hide the fact that once you garner an interview, they will actively try to recruit you. They do a great job of that and I know I would be very happy to attend there. Oh and particularly with my 2 faculty interviews, I could tell they read my application in detail and it was nice to know they had thoughtful questions prepared." Report Response
