What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"UF is very selective when it comes to interviews. My interview group was told that if UF invites you for an interview that they expect that you will get in other places. The way the numbers broke down that about 60-65% of the people interviewed eventually (after some candidates decline, etc.) received an acceptance." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"An interview at UF is not so much an evaluation of you but more UF wants to get an eyeball on you as a person. My interviewers were very relaxed and just wanted to get to know me. Basically if you have an interview with UF: Don't sweat it; UF already likes you otherwise you wouldn't be invited. " Report Response
