How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read up on sdn interview feedback, looked over application briefly. Was already accepted elsewhere so had a somewhat 'cavalier' attitude toward the day." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are aesthetically pleasing, problem based learning seemed like a 'fun' way to learn medicine. The staff and students were very friendly during the interview day. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The faculty seemed to lack something. I got the impression that they taught there because they didn't have to spend much time giving lectures, and would have more time to pursue other activities. As stated above, problem based learning seems like a 'fun' way to learn medicine, but the idea of going to med school without basically any lectures seems odd. Especially considering it is a new school and the average MCAT of entering students is 23! I think a new school with no graduates yet should have a more standardized form of teaching to ensure it's students' success. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You have to wear a suit and tie to school every day (in Florida humidity, no less). No food or drink allowed outside of the cafeteria. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two faculty members interviewed me. One, Dr. Baden, was friendly but strange.. (I didn't come up with that, another member of their staff said that after my interview!). He kept asking me 'why?' after most questions: i.e. after being asked "Why medicine?" and giving an answer, he said "No, WHY medicine?"...at first it was intriguing, but after five questions went by with him asking "But WHY?" after each one, it got old...The other member of the interview committee just read questions from a sheet, took notes, and didn't say much. My interview took over 50 minutes because I had a long talk with Dr. Baden, which seemed positive...they acted like I was accepted, but I later found out I was waitlisted (Therefore please take my 'negative impressions' of the school with a grain of salt).
