What are your general comments?

"I still really like the school, but I did not feel like they did a great job of convincing me of why I should choose them over another school. There are many perks to going to school in Miami (and at the UMMSM at that), but in comparison to other schools, I felt pretty "foreign" on campus (if that makes sense). I had a harder time picturing myself there...just felt a bit disconnected. The interview day made me feel like I was just going through the motions." Report Response
