What impressed you negatively?

"Pretty much everything. These people know that Florida residents are dying to go to their school for the simple fact that it is cheap and, consequently, they act accordingly. The school is also a complete mess under construction and I don't care what they say, it is like a dungeon and those are poor excuses for windows." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That having an interview doesn't mean much. I had one section of my DAT that was average and they told me to take it again or I wouldn't even be considered. Who wants to study for the DAT in two months? I also really felt sorry for the people from out of state. They have pretty much no chance of getting in and unfortunately, they wasted money and time to be told so. " Report Response
