What impressed you positively?

"The students were genuine and extremely happy to be at the school. One student even mentioned that the balance between the rigorous material and the great student lifestyle makes him forget he's in med school at times. The school is a true pass/fail school, which eliminates competition and promotes a family-like culture. This in conjunction with UF's new integrative, team-based curriculum is making a great impact on student learning and performance on STEP 1. During interview day, they showed us a chart of UF's performance vs the National Avg for USMLE Step 1 and each year (especially since starting the new curriculum a few years ago) UF students performed well above the national average. Also, UF is trying to become a Top 10 Public institution and due to this they have a great amount of funding coming in and a lot of that money is being used on the medical school and students. I will be entering as the class of 2019 and when we start they will have a start of the art new medical school building that is built to really help us succeed. UF blew me away, not exaggerating, and cannot wait to start. They put their students first and you can tell! OH! And they took us out to eat for dinner the night before the interview, for FREE at the restaurant the Swamp with medical students! So awesome." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing much but the anatomy lab did appear a bit drab and their wasn't a gym located in the same area as where classes were held but we learned the gym is a quick 5 min bike or bus ride to one of the main campus gyms, Southwest Rec." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
