"nothing" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Basically everything. The students were incredibly smart and happy and loved being there. My interviewers (a faculty member and a student) were just wonderful, and the administration was amazing. They try so hard to sell you on their school so that they can compete with some of the big names that will also probably admit you." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I still just can't see myself living in Gainesville. UF is a lot like my high school: really smart people whose boundaries are unfortunately reduced to the peninsula they live on." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't wear a black suit. Everybody's doing it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was just SO impressed with the administration and the students. The facilities are much better than I expected, the students have these labs/study spaces that they basically live in, and everyone is intellectual and outgoing. For your state school, which many people will view as their back-up, this would be a pretty great place to be." Report Response
