So what are you doing your last semester in college (I said I was only taking one class...but I explained everything). And what do you do in your classes now, specifically business strategy?

What are your general comments?

"It was pretty laid back. My first interviewer asked all the traditional questions (why a doc? what's the deal with med now? explain this part of your application. etc.) and was very amiable and gave much insight into the awesome community there. Then the second interviewer (who was apparently a "hit or miss") was AMAZING. Dr. Vogel was his name and he just talks to you about life - his life, his kids (one of which goes to UF and the other is thinking about medicine), your life,...everything - and there're no specific questions. He's just an amazing guy - very intelligent - and makes you feel really comfortable while relating the depth of his life experiences to medicine and why going to UF is an amazing choice. The students you get to talk to are also amazing and vivacious. And I got my acceptance letter a week later, so that's awesome too!" Report Response
