How did you prepare for the interview?

"FSU website ( they don't give a lot of history to the school so check this out), SDN (all the extra questions in my interviews were exactly like the questions I saw here-I think they have a standard list of questions), AMCAS app (this is important because both interviewers simply went through my AMCAS and asked me questions about it), and secondary app ( I don't know if they even use this, but it's good to know what you wrote anyway)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were so nice. The facility is awesome. They have "Learning Communities" which are basically apartments for a small group of students. This really would make the long hours studying more comfortable!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that no one really knows of the school's name, because it is new. I guess it's a small price to pay if you are happy for 4 years. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How nice everyone is. There some extreme southern hospitality goin on in Tallahassee, it's shocking!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviews are always stressful no matter what, especially when you have two within a short period of time, but all the students were really nice. They tell you the real stuff, so talk to them a lot. They even give you tips about your interviewers before the interview. You will probably be surprized at how much you like the school, I was. Even the other applicants seemed cool. I think they like more personable people than the typical premed kid. I liked the school a lot and was accepted the week following my interview."
