What was the most interesting question?

"If the government offered to pay for your medical school tution, fees, etc., would you be willing to spend 3 years practicing in a rural part of the country? This could be considered a form of socialized medicine, how do you feel about government intervention such as this?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"So I see you have held several different jobs working under physicians... why not stick with one of those positions? Why go the extra mile and become a doctor? (This shouldn't have been as hard as it was, but my interviewer would not accept any answer that involved my desire to care of patients because he said I cared for patients in my other jobs as well.)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty were incredibly enthusiastic and the facilities were very modern and clean." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I don't think my second interviewer did a good job getting to know me. He seemed more concerned with trying to crack me by throwing out bizarre questions. Disregarding this one interview, I would have given the overall stress level a 2 instead of a 5." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To get to the second level of the parking garage you have to exit out of the bottom level and then go through another gate on the second level. (It actually took me a few laps around the first level before I figured this one out!) Get there early if you don't know the area because there is some construction going on that can slow you down." Report Response

"The day was long (9:15-5:15) and included several different meetings, two tours, two interviews and an introduction to STAN. Overall though, it was great and I'd be very happy attending UF next year. " Report Response
