What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed extremely happy to be there. The staff was overwhelmingly helpful and enthusiastic about USF. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"USF's facilities weren't up to par with some of the other schools I've visited. Their computers and buildings are outdated, and I didn't see much in the way of technology. Everything looked like it had been around since the 80s, including their student lounge. They should really do some remodeling, considering the medical school is where students will be spending most of their time. Plus they don't do much research which is a negative thing in my opinion." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"My only concern is that the interviews didn't seem to hold much weight - they weren't given by members of the admissions committee, but rather with students and M.D.s or PhD's anywhere in USF. My MD interview was with a doctor at the V.A. who didnt even know she would be interviewing someone that day. However on the spot she was extremely encouraging and I was surprised at her adaptability to the situation" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were relaxed and comfortable. Almost no pressure. Both interviewers seemed interested in everything I had to say (even if they weren't, it was nice of them to act like they were!). No difficult questions were asked and we spent most of the time talking about what I had mentioned in the "Tell me about yourself" questions." Report Response
