What impressed you positively?

"The admissions staff was GREAT!! my second interviewer was nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We had to go and find our interviewer's office. I also had to do my interviews back-to-back-- no break! My first interviewer was aggressive and confrontational, which made me feel unwelcome and did not make me want to go to UF. He had a sarcastic tone at times. Also, the student facilities are awful! You are in the basement of Shands, and there are no windows. It's drab. The lecture halls were also very depressing considering how much time you spend in them. Pretty much everything needs considerable updating in terms of where the students are.. which is too bad since UF has a good reputation." Report Response
