"Nothing - I was already familiar with UF Med." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went into the day at UF feeling sure that I wanted to come here. However, by the end of the day I was not quite so impressed. When a prospective student interviews for medical school, he or she expects a reasonable amount of professionalism from the school and its faculty. I was shocked by the treatment I received but I believe my experience is probably the exception and not the rule. UF is a good school but at the end of the day it left me disappointed."
