"We had a small group interview of 6 students from a variety of schools. Started out with a nice breakfast and a chat was some med students, followed by a presentation about UM and FAU by Dr. Markowitz and Dr. Rose (both very friendly). Then a presentation about the new curriculum. Had the interviews, followed by a tour of the school (very nice and new...I loved the nerdieries, the anatomy lab..etc).
