What are your general comments?

"It was a long day, from 9-5:30, however, it did not seem that dragged out. We were constantly doing something. The demeanor of the students was great, they all truly seemed to be happy there. There seemed to be a great sense of camaraderie. They went on and on about how great the faculty was. First interviewer was an older faculty member that seemed very indifferent and uninterested. Second interview was with a 4th year, very comfortable. Overall a positive experience that bumped up UF on my list. Not one question about healthcare at all though, kinda surprising. Of course its the topic I prepared most for. " Report Response
