What are your general comments?

"Hard to get a good feel for the campus/atmosphere as it was the weekend and the area was pretty barren. The 2nd years were working on their show, and the enthusiasm with which they went about prepping for that was endearing, but otherwise there was nothing going on around Vandy/med school. Facilities are nice, students are friendly, I really enjoyed my interviews. " -Posted 01/15/2006 | Report Response
