What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How a short walk to the admissions office made me sweat? I arrived super early and sat down in the office. Little did I know that my interviewer was sitting next to me. We started talking and he told me that he was my interviewer. I was so relieved because he was such a nice guy and at that point I knew that I was going to have a great interview! Lesson learned: arrrive early and be nice to everyone you encounter along the way. You never know. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Miami was and is my first choice all the way! I absolutely love it hear. There are so many opportunities for hands-on clinical experience in an easy-going environment. Also, the research facilities in the vincinty like the Diabetes Research Institute and the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis conduct nationally recognized research projects through collaborative efforts with other leading institutions. UM Med is also looking to expand which is wonderful because students have the option to choose. The FAU program has a lot of offer, namely: small class sizes, intimate relationship with professors, excellent professors dedicated solely to teaching, brand new state-of-the-art (classrooms, medical examining rooms, research facilities, student lounges, student study rooms), each student gets his/her own personalized desk for the two years, lots of extra love <3. Dr. Hinkley is one of the most down-to-earth Deans ever. He is friendly and approachable...and has a great sense of humor. He takes the time to listen to students and address their concerns/questions. Yeah, maybe he is not able to call or email recent interviewees of the committees decision when he said he is going to...but what other dean tries to commit to a deadline like he does. Dean Warren at the Boca campus is also a wonderful dean and very forward-thinking. " Report Response
