"What do you feel about the current state of health care in the US?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read interview feedback. Otherwise nothing. The school only interviews people who meet their academic criteria, so just be yourself. That's why you're there. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Nice location. Just far enough from the beach that it's not tempting to blow off studying. PBL is a great method of learning if you learn concepts better than memorizing details. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Clowns every where! The building is decorated exclusively with clown art (sort of creepy). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Be early! I was 5 minutes early and everyone was already there. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Contrary to what others have said, you DO NOT have to setup your own rotations. Bradenton has a match system for these spots. You give the school your preference for order or timing of (3 and 4th year) rotations and they assign you. However, if you would rather leave the Florida area (and say return to your home state) you can, and those rotations are up to you. It's a best of both worlds scenario. Also, this isn't a school you can go to just to be going to med school. You have to be willing to do PBL for 2 years. Unlike other schools where you can hide in the library and study, at Bradenton you have to be good at group interaction. If this isn't your thing you will be miserable. " Report Response
