What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing and state-of-the-art. I did a lot of research ahead of time on the school, but was still impressed by the building, especially the famous CLC. My interviewers were great and seemed to genuinely want to get to know me as a person. I could tell they had taken time to really peruse my app and come up with questions specifically for me. It was so laid-back and relaxing that I wasn't stressed out at all. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I don't particularly care for the Tallahassee area, probably because I'm biased and from its rival school. But overall, the city doesn't intrigue me like other cities I've visited. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. No surprises. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both my interviewers were incredibly congenial. They really wanted to get to know me. My first one went through each of my experiences listed on my AMCAS and asked me to talk about them more, which was great for me to be able to flush those out more. My second interview was really conversational and I felt like I was just talking with someone. There was no pressure that I had to have the right answer. I felt comfortable and they made me feel like a guest, not like someone that THEY wanted to see if they liked ME. " Report Response
