"stan was kinda neat" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The whole day, I felt like I was being sold a used car, not just by the admissions folks, but also by the students that were trotted out by admissions; they did not strike me as honest at all. I did, however, manage to pull aside a few random students at the med school, though. They weren't nearly as enthusiastic as their counterparts, and they struck me as kind of petty, negative toward their classmates, and possibly (?) competitive. Also, Gainesville seemed like a dead town." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I would caution very much against forming an opinion based on what the admissions office throws at you. Pull aside those students who weren't sent there by admissions and get their opinions on this place. Overall, I wasn't pleased with this place, and I have serious doubts about the 3rd and 4th year clinical training." Report Response
