What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing!! They will have a new building with three floors. I think they're called LCL's learning community something. Anyways, a class is divided up into these communities. For example, the current freshman are divided into two communities and have two rooms. Each room has four rooms that are equipped with 2 dry erase boards, a computer, a projecter, a huge desk and nice chairs! The main room has a shower, almost a living room type area, fridge, and lockers! They planned very well for their students are very equipped and technologically advanced! Next, they're open minded! If you're interested in missionary trips internationally, and want to organize fellow classmates to join you, the will support and help you for the mission. -they currently have international trips over spring break. The free laptop, pda, and wireless internet given to each student is also a plus!!!" Report Response

"I asked one of the students about research, and he had no clue how to go about pursuing research. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They are focus on primary care, however you do not have to specialize in it. You spend 2 years at FSU and transfer to either orlando, st. petes and somewhere else. The research thing scared me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I totally didn't like the guy that interviewed me. He NEVER smiled; he occasionally smirked. I couldn't really tell if he was pleased with my answers or if he was just really stern. I had another interview with a lady, she was very cool!! Very easy to talk with and just a great person. It was very conversational, yet she did ask me questions. " Report Response
