How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN and got a good night's sleep." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students I talked with seemed happy and the way the school integrates technology is amazing. I can't think of any other school that gives you a laptop and a PDA. Integrating technology with everyday clinical decision making is the way of the future and FSU understands this. Despite the school's young age, I think anyone coming out of FSU will have a great medical education and be well prepared to practice clinical medicine." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Even after the interview, I'm still confused on how the school decides which satellite campus you will go to for years 3 and 4. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I read the interviews were very laid back and conversational. I wish I had taken this to heart and been more relaxed during my interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day starts off at 11AM with a meet and greet with Dr. Eveland. Dr. Eveland is a real nice guy and he gives you a great overview of where the school is now and where it's going. After that, you have lunch with a couple second year medical students followed by a tour. When I was there, the CLC was locked and we didn't get to see it but the rest of the school was impressive. Both of my interviewers were great and I learned a lot about the school. Dr. Van Durme was great and told me how FSU is integrating evidence-based medicine into the curriculum." Report Response
