"If you could be any cell in the body, what would it be?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

How did you prepare for the interview?

"AMCAS and SDN Honestly this interview was very straightforward, nobody was out to get you." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The location- Tampa is a great city to live in. Also, the people went out of their way to make they day informative and enjoyable (they even gave out chocolates!) " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day was too long, I was exhausted by the time it was over. As with most other med school interviews, I felt that the financial aid speech should be optional. Most interviewees are more concerned about being accepted, then they will worry about all of that stuff." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it would rain (bring an umbrella if it looks cloudy)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was overall quite happy with my interview experience. The school is a good choice for in staters and offers a more big city environment than the other state med schools. The med students seemed happy too. The only thing that would have made me LOVE the school would have been a straight pass/fail grading system (not honors, high pass, etc). But most schools are not, so what can you do?" Report Response
