What are your general comments?

"I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The interview was fabulous and the school is top notch as far as clinical and research opportunities go. I was impressed with the honesty and integrity that the admissions staff possessed- they even gave us a detailed sheet of residency matches of previous years as hard data we could look at and take home with us. The staff seemed very open to suggestions and I even overheard students talking about a curriculum change to improve the great curriculum that USF already has. Another plus is that students gain clinical exposure beginning in their first year of medical school. Just relax and have a fun day- it really is a great school and a great experience!"
