What are your general comments?

"I flew into Tampa the morning before my interview, drove down to Sarasota (where my hotel was) and went to the beach to relax. I wouldn't recommend the Quality Inn and Suites in Sarasota off of 41 -- my room smelled heavily of mold. I arrived at the interview on time/early. They had a group of eight students interviewing at a time (they provided a light breakfast and lunch) and gave us an overview of PBL and Bradenton residential life. Very friendly staff/faculty. Also, they allowed us to sit-in on a 2 hour long PBL session. This experience really confirmed my desire to do PBL. " Report Response
