How did you prepare for the interview?

"sdn, mock interview with friends, read up on the current issues and asked people about their thoughts on current healthcare issues." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the students were super enthusiastic. they couldn't stop talking about how stellar the professors are, how they go out of their way (coming in on the weekends when they are not required to) to help students learn and prepare for the exam. also, the school has a room dedicated to the arts of medicine instead of the science of medicine, which is something different. in this room, students are asked to take a break from studying and encouraged to express their creative side through art, music, and literature." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"nothing really. everyone was so nice and they tried their best to make the whole interviewing process less fearful. i cant say enough about the students... they were great. they were eager to answer any questions anyone had, and it wasnt just a yes, no answer. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"i go to uf for undergrad so I pretty familiar with everything. I prepared myself pretty solidly that felt that there were no great surprises or anything. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was iffy whether i wanted to stay in state or go out of state because i've never been out of state before. however, interviewing at florida really made it seem like staying in state isnt so bad after all. i was really impressed with the enthusiasm of the students. they were so helpful and so happy, even with 5 exams coming up in a couple of days. none of them gave an aura of snobbiness, which is really really good. i felt like everyone was part of a big family. this atmosphere is exactly what i am looking for in a school. florida would definitely be among the top choices on my list. also, the interviewers were great. they really just want to get to know you. they arent there to throw you off the wall questions or anything. and if you dont know something, just say i dont know. the one thing you really have to know is yourself. It may be good to know something about current health issues; i got one question, but it wasnt bad." Report Response
