What impressed you positively?

"Great atmosphere. I had heard that there was this cut-throat competition amongst the students, but I did't see it. I also realized that it varies by year - one of my interviewers said that the 4MDs are pretty competitive, but all other years are great. Also, the faculty were really nice and helpful. Interviewees were also a good crowd. Students were very cool - the whole 1st year class came out to say hello (or at least it felt like the whole class). But they were nice and helpful - ready to answer questions. Faculty seems awesome and accesible. While we were there, Dr. Gessner gave away these awesome concert tickets to a 2nd year student." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the facilities aren't that nice - the halls are kinda monotonous." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Stan is pretty cool. Also, they try and pair you up with someone who they think will relate to you. I was paired up with a hispanic doctor because I'm hispanic - it was nice. Also, eat what you can because the students there aren't shy about eating your food. One of my interviewers talked about how UF places high value on research and community service during the selection process - they do a thorough job selecting people to interview so that acceptance rate is about 50% once you get an interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I like that the day starts out at 10:30am - kinda late compared to other interviews. We had a welcome session and a financial aid session, then the group split up into 2 parts - one went to interviews, and the other went on a tour. There were two interviews and two tours. Interviews were very laid back - no tough questions really." Report Response
