What impressed you positively?

"1. What's going on here with regards to research and recruiting is incredible. I'm convinced UM's ranking is going to skyrocket in a couple years. Spoke with a number of students who were actively involved in research projects. 2. The clinical training seems to be unbeatable. One 4th year student remarked that the residency program director at his first choice essentially told him they'd be ranking him highly because of UM's clinical reputation. 3. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the students seemed very warm and friendly. I really feel like I'd fit in here. 4. USMLE Step 2 scores appear to be through the roof. 5. Miami. Enough said."
