What impressed you positively?

"Facilities were nice and Shands is always adding additional building. STAN was pretty cool as well. Also, UF students have really good board scores and they make sure you know it. They give you all these graphs showing how everybody passed last year and that their score are independent of what MCAT scores would predict. Students seem very happy and upbeat despite being in the middle of tests." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great experience and pretty stress free. Although the day is long, it goes by pretty quickly because you are always doing something.

The hospital/med school complex is huge and continues to get bigger." Report Response
