    I was not impressed.
    The interview was basically every behavioral question that you can find on the internet. The interview went fine; there are no wrong answers, but I was just very turned off by the school and people in general. :thumbdown:

    Ouch! Sorry you had a bad experience, I hope it wasnt the freshman that turned you off (I was one of the volunteers, I tried to be nice/friendly/encouraging!) but what specifically bothers you about UF? It's been tough, but the school and faculty have treated us so well! Most of the interviewees I spoke to seemed really excited/happy wonder what went wrong with you?

    I had a great experience. My interviewers created a very laid back and comfortable environment for me. Dr. Thompson, the interviewers, and the Freshmen volunteers gave a very warm and inviting environment. Thank you ReinaDeLuz and all the other Freshmen volunteers for your help!

    Does anyone happen to know how UF applicants were chosen for their interview spot? Like, is the time we're chosen to interview reflective of our application packet score (i.e. applicants with higher scores interview earlier), was it alphabetical, etc.?

    I don't know. It's might've been alphabetical. I'm near the end of the alphabet, and the two dudes who sat next to me in the room both had last names adjacent to mine. We were the last interview of the day.

    It may not be alphabetical, as I interviewed (in the last slot of the day) with two girls who have last names C and K (and my last name was S). But probably it was more random than anything else, as even if we were considered the "less desirable" its strange because 7 or 8 of the people I interviewed with in that group got in. So who knows. Only Dr. Thompson!
