What impressed you positively?

"The positivity and enthusiasm of the students, and the dedication that the faculty and staff had to the mission of producing physicians who would be good clinicians and who work well in teams. Also, the study areas are AWESOME!!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of third and fourth year students to talk to, lectures are mandatory and they are not videotaped and posted - only the notes are, the having to move for your final two years, and the lack of hospitals for clinical experience in the first two years - although you are matched up with a physician in the community for a semester in your first and second years." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very laid back. Everyone was extremely friendly and accomodating. I admit to applying to FSU as a ''back-up'' school, but after visiting, if I am accepted, I will be seriously considering their program. The interview day would have only been better if the second year student you gave us our tour hadn't gotten lost when attempting to take us to our interviewers, although I felt badly for him because he was a very nice person and seemed to be more stressed about being lost than we were :) " Report Response
