What impressed you negatively?

"The day was way too long and many parts were entirely unnecissary. STAN was cool, but I've seen similar things at other schools. The Harrel center is nothing new, and I've seen much better facilities at other places. The video for the program looks like its about 20 years old. The day seemed very disjointed, there was nobody to tie things up at the end and nobody took us around to interviews and such. I was hoping to leave with a favorable impression, but I was VERY displeased with my experience. UF didn't represent themselves well at all. I know the school is better than they lead the interviewees to believe from the crappy interview day." Report Response

"How disappointed I'd be with my interview day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"WAY TOO LONG! Also, very disjointed. I feel like there are two different people who interview at UF and I have advice for each. For the people who are seriously considering UF and are moderately or less competitive applicants: the school is not bad, and don't be misled by the interview day. To the people who are competitve at other schools and applying to UF because its their state school: don't go here just because its cheap. The kind of experience you get for the interview is likely to be similar to the experience of going to school there." Report Response
