What are your general comments?

"Overall, the school was impressive. The clinical opportunities are strong and students had a lot of positive things to say. The downside is that they are on an undergraduate campus so there does not feel like there is a lot of professionalism except later on when you are in the specific podiatry building. First two years are spent in another undergraduate building. There were not state of the art facilities or a locker room for changing out of scrubs after anatomy. The pre-clinical professors are supposedly very tough and you have to really look out for yourself. The student ambassadors confirmed this and said to keep focused on your work and to do well. There is also a mandatory Florida externship your senior year that takes away from your choice of electives. This isn't a school that should be discounted before visiting/interviewing. Very generous with scholarship money for the students that seem to be worth it." Report Response
