What are your general comments?

"The interview day was very well planned out. After welcoming us and a brief info session, they took us to the Harrell Center- a simulated doctor's office for standardized patients where students can get hands on learning experience starting in the first year. We then saw the HARVEY cardiac stimulator, followed by the Maren Reading Room- a room where students are allowed to do anything but study filled with non-medical books, dvds, art work, and a piano, providing a nice break from the rigors of med school. Then we had lunch and talked with the students who were very enthusiastic. After lunch we had two one hour interviews and tours of the med school and hospital. I thought my first interview went really well, my interviewer really tried to sell the school to me (although I told him that after the morning session, UF was definitely my first choice)and was very encouraging. My second interview with a 4th year student was less conversational and felt more like an interrogation, and I didn't get much positive feedback from him so I'm not sure what he thought of my answers. He was very nice though, I just don't know how much I impressed him. UF told us they would get back to us within week with either an acceptance or a "hold." Hold just means that they may accept the applicant at a later date until they form the alternate list around late april or may." Report Response
