What impressed you positively?

"I was blown away by the school. Honestly I think this is where I want to be for the next four years. I was very impressed by the facilities, the cultural diversity of the area (I heard more spanish and Haitian Creole than English) and getting my training at Jackson with the beach 10min. away seems amazing. I also really loved the students I met. They were all very positive and helpful and were very relaxed. Overall Miami was pretty awesome and I hope I get an acceptance in a few weeks!"

"How amazing the medical campus really is. The buildings and centers all look great and the diversity of the city is far beyond what i imagined.

"I think this was probably the best interview day I was at. This was my 6th interview and I felt like it was the best orgainized. The information sessions were informative and not too long. The tour took us pretty much everywhere and lasted over an hour (so wear comfortable shoes!). The student lunch was really sweet because we all sat at one table and asked M1, M2, M3 and M4s questions they could all share about! " Report Response
