What impressed you positively?

"Everything. The building is amazing. The tuition is very low, and it includes a laptop & PDA which are pretty highly integrated in the curriculum. The learning communites are fantastic, and really foster a great study environment. The clinical learning center is great. The faculty are genuinely concerned with your well-being and your education, it is apparant that they love what they do. The students are very happy. Clinical experience from the very beginning - not just standardized patients." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"While I got a great sense of what the first 2 years will be like, I didn't get a good understanding of the last 2 years. Since the third & fourth years are all off campus, and many scattered about the state, there is no one there to speak from personal experience, rather just faculty & staff talking about the programs. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How amazing FSUCOM really is. Too few people respect the school, simply because it is new and "untested". But the first graduating class had pretty decent residencies, and step one scores have been above the average." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It is a very nice, stress-free day. There are no long, boring powerpoint presentations. The days starts at 11am, where you get introduced with a few people. Afterwards, lunch is served. Food was good except that I didn't like having to cut chicken off the bone while worrying that I was going to flick a piece of it at myself. You eat lunch with a couple students, who are very honest. They then take you for a tour, and then you wind up at your interview locations. Both interviews were very laid back - I honestly felt as if I were talking with friends or colleagues. Bother interviewers were sincere and honest, as well as interested in what I had to say. " Report Response
