Did they make mention of how full the class is at this point? I've been accepted at Miami, but would really like an interview at UF, just to get a feel for the school. I've been complete for a while now, and am getting the feeling that time is running out.
ghgi8 said:i think it went pretty well. Both of my interviewers were real laid back and the other interviewees said the same. Great tour of Shands. Long day but thats expected.....I got waitlisted, keeping my fingers crossed.

I ask because I am.
pinkice said:Right now I am debating between UF and Pitt. Of course I won't hear from Pitt until next month but based on my interview there and the favorable response I've gotten from all the other schoools where I interviewed I'm pretty confident I'll be accepted. Did you interview elsewhere? If so what was the deciding factor for UF?
BeatArmy said:In-state tuition and the fact that I like gainesville were probably the biggest factors for me. I also really liked what I heard during the interview day. Academically, I am impressed by what they are accomplishing with board scores. They are committed to growing and improving, but they are also cautious about making large changes to the curriculum and grading scheme. So many schools right now are moving toward PBL and P/F. I think most of them are doing it to attract students. UF is staying lecture and letter grades because they think it is the best way to teach and learn. I would prefer not to go somewhere that is using a curriculum that is brand new or going through major rework. Clinically, I think the Shands system is great.
To answer your other question, it was my only interview because I cancelled all my others after getting in to UF.
