What impressed you positively?

"The campus is beautiful and the area is nice (even if Florida is mostly a swamp). The programs seem solid, and the students seem very, very happy. Having all of the students in various programs together (but separated by their color-coded scrubs) seemed like it worked pretty well and made for a great, high-energy environment. The OMM fellowship sounds awesome (same for the research fellowship, if you're interested in that). Also, the cookies were fantastic." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They weren't sure if students would be able to dissect for anatomy lab, as they had alternated actual dissection with prosection over the last couple years. Attendance policy is a little lame. Also, they really hyped up a dummy that really didn't do much more than simulate chest sounds." Report Response
