What impressed you positively?

"the facilities are great! the students were awesome and very peppy considering that they were in teh middle of a day of class." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"they had nearly 30 med students come in and field questions during lunch--almost all of them were from UF undergrad. Nearly 70% of the class is from UF...maybe not so good if youre from another school (like me)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"there are TWO interviews, each of them is one hour long! this is probably some of teh longest interviews you will find, but they are relatively low stress. ALSO--they place nearly everyone on a "hold list" following the interview. it isnt a wait list, but you wont find out anything for a while." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the day is pretty informal and not rigidly structured. the admin staff does not make you sit through presentation after boring presentation (as they do in some places); its justa brief morning fin aid session and then the director talks. after that they pretty much cut you loose and you talk to students, eat lunch, and find you interviewer's office (they give you directions). the day will depend on who you get, but nobody got anybody really bad the day i was there."
