What impressed you positively?

"Tour was very well organized. Very good board scores, which will almost positively be the highest ever this year (step1)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dean of Admissions is very cocky and loves admitting students with musical backgrounds, no lie. For example, according to a second year student, approximately 2/3 of the class plays an instrument. Luckily this is the last year of his tenure, I believe. Also, Gainesville is the epitomy of a college town. Everything revolves around UF. For example, during the fall med. students must move their cars by 5PM on Fridays to make room for all the football fans with RV's." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nearest apartments are 1/2 mile away. Nearest parking, except on weekends, is 1/2 mile away (I measured it). So expect a hike to and from campus EVERYDAY." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, UF will give you a great medical education but the experience will be hell. The students have no lives and are extremely competitive (about 12 students with straight A's). And since all students evaluate one another (the evaluation goes into your permanant file) everyone is extremely fake and walks on eggshells trying not to tick one another off." Report Response
