What impressed you positively?

"The students are so happy and enthusiastic about their school. There seems to be a strong social cohesion. Administration seems to be strong and supportive of their students. It is definitely a ripe learning environment. Also, the statistics for USMLE impressed me!--and the fact that the standardized patient began at UF! The students there are helpful and even led me to different parts of the med school when I became lost! They are happy for the interviewees--we were the first group of the class of 2009. Also, Robyn and Denise had written for each interviewees, their schedules and directions how to get to the rooms where our interviewers would be. No maps and leave us alone--very nurturing and hand-holding, it seems." Report Response
