"The most difficult question was also the most interesting: Many people are bored in Gainesville, so why stay in Gainesville? Do want to go to school somewhere exciting and different?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I practiced questions that I got from studentdoctor.net and other online sources. My father (a psychology professor at UCF) gave me a mock interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I am from UF, so I knew most of what they were going to show. However, STAN impressed me immensely. The organization of the students and their successfulness after med school was also very impressive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing much, really. I know that Gainesville is a slow city and there is not much to do here; but after living here for 4 years, I have learned how to enjoy myself." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The comments from studentdoctor.net really helped me and I was aware before hand that the meeting room would be cold, that I was going to only eat once. However, I thought the food they served was fine. Oh yes, for the ladies, be sure to bring an alternate pair of shoes just in case your feet hurt: you will be going on two 30 minute tours." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience overall was low stress and rather enjoyable. It was an opportunity for the school to know who you are. The interviewers are like your personal representatives who will vouch for you in front of the decision committiee. In fact, the mock interview with my father was much more draining."
