What are your general comments?

"Overall, everything was very impressive except the day is long (9:15-5:20). Robyn, Denise, and Dr. Gessner are awesome and try to make you feel as relaxed as possible. They explain the process very thoroughly and commend you for making it to that point. My first interview was closed file but the second interview was open file. I felt like the questions asked during my interviews were tougher compared to the other students that I talked to. I love UF and after interviewing it reassured me of being my top choice."
