to all those who read mdsiren's post I just thought I'd inform you all of a different opinion: I had an exceptionally weird interview at Miami and Dean Hinkley personally went out of his way to make sure my concerns were addressed. he is NOT arrogant and he is probably the nicest administrator I met during the whole interview circuit -- at some interviews the admissions dean didn't even bother talking to us. Furthermore, Miami was an excellent school and I would recommend it to ANYONE -- you have to see this place to believe how nice it is, it's truly state-of-the art and i have no doubt they'll one day be up there in the national rankings. if it weren't for financial reasons, i would be going there. i think it's an utter shame other people would go on this board and just plain out bash a medical school and a really sincerely nice and honest man -- this is a forum for sharing informed and constructive opinions and we shouldn't resort to baseless name-calling.
