What impressed you negatively?

"Everywhere I turned there was a subliminal put down of UF. Someone actually said, we teach to be good doctors, not just to take tests (referring to UF's bettr board scores). They care more about proof of Florida residency than UF because they get money for every Florida resident. They just committed to getting more out of state students (30 out of a class of 160 up from like 10). This bugs me and they need to change their philosophy if they want to be a top med school. It just seems that they have all these resources but don't use them to the fullest. Eg. they went on about this great electronic application process they have that lets them all vote quickly on your application and then told us how we should not expect to hear any time before March. (2 mons. after interview)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing new" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was the most laid back I have had... DON'T STRESS, you will feel stupid if you do. Know why you want to do medicine... thats all really. They just want to make sure the applications didn't kill you. The real benefit of UM is the last 2 years. Many students have told me that after the 1st semester it is easy. You will have to work a bit harder for the USMLE step 1, but after that, it is the best clinical experience (save Grady hospital in Atlanta). If you want to do rural medicine, not the place, if you want to specialize in trauma, a great education" Report Response
