What are your general comments?

" The facilities are AMAZING, and during the first part of the day I was very impressed with all of the faculty and medical students I met. However, one of my interviews was quite bad. The interviewer had not read ANY of my application; in fact, I was stunned as I watched them casually peruse my application (and insult my choice of a major) and all of my letters of recommendation and actually stop the interview to check e-mail and talk to an assistant. I did not feel that the interviewer even really cared that I was there vying for a spot in the medical school class. It was as if I was inconveniencing them . . . which didn’t really impress me and make me want to attend FSU even though the students seemed happy and the facilities were amazing. " Report Response
