What impressed you negatively?

"The small patient pool. Also I was supposed to be interviewed by 3 people. After 10 min the third person didn’t show up and so they started without him. The dean of admissions yawned like 3 times during the interview. She did not even seem the least bit interested in what I had to say. Although she was all smiles during the group presentation she did not smile at all throughout the interview. I felt she was cold and a little condescending. The other interviewer was much nicer and seemed to listen to what I had to say." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I took an accelerated Organic Chemistry/Biochem course at UF. I was assured by the head of the chem dept that the credits would be accepted by virtually all dental,vet and medical schools. At the interview the dean of admissions at UF said that the class could not count towards both prereqs. She suggested I take summer classes to fulfill 2 credits for Organic Chem or take another Biochem class. To add insult to injury she said she personally knew the head of the chemistry dept and knew first-hand about the fine program he teaches. " Report Response
