What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guide seemed to be running late for something and made me feel like we were runnning around the school and the hospital. Didn't really feel like we had enough time to take everything in. It was very hot." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How long it would take me to get there. I overestimated and ended up being in the admissions office over an hour early." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Arriving early, I got to talk to the director of admissions for awhile before any other interviewees arrived. The day was very organized and the presentations on the campuses of UM were very informative. Lunch with the students was also beneficial: I live in the area and I wanted to know how many students that live in Miami live with their families or sought other places to reside. Walking around the hospital really made obvious how highly trafficked the facilities are and how many opportunities are really available to the medical students because of this. Dr. Hinkley is a real nice guy and really tried to create a relaxed atmosphere so we wouldn't be too nervous for our interviews." Report Response
