What are your general comments?

"Very comfortable and thorough. The day is long: the morning (8-12am) is full of briefings (financial aid, research opportunities, UFCOM info), while the afternoon (1-5pm) is divided into 4 segments (2 are 1-hour interviews, 2 are 1-hour tours with plenty of Q&A time). The interviews (one by a 4th year, one by an instructor) were both open file, but my file was referenced sparingly. Both interviewers wanted to know ME and not the paperwork. Everyone I met was friendly and in a good mood. The best part of the entire process is the turnaround time: I did my interview on Friday, and received a call 4 DAYS LATER (Tuesday) saying that I had gotten in. Even if you're not admitted right away, you'll find out you've been wait-listed within a week, and there are several reviews before the May deadline for decisions. The application process for UF has been the best thus far." Report Response
