What was the most difficult question?

"Is UF your top-choice school? (I then answered that it was at the top of my list but after today, it was my number one) then my interviewer rebutted and asked "why it wasn't before" which I had to think quickly on my feet with. Gave an honest and truthful answer that impressed my interviewer" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"LOTS of research, attended Swamp Social, read interview feedback on SDN, compiled list of most common questions and things I would like to touch on but also just practiced with several mock interviews" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers knew my application inside and out. This was the only school I have interviewed at so far that truly cared about my application and read over it. They remembered minute details that I had mentioned in my application and both spoke on my personal statement and secondary application, even quoting particular points of it and asking me to elaborate. So so organized and everyone is so passionate about the school's vision and mission! Loved the director of admission's presentation as well about the art of medicine." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing at all, this school blew me away with their organization" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
