"how they are keeping up with technology" More from this Member | Report Response

"VIC and COMET are fantastic; students get their own notebooks from IS pre-loaded with COMET. The facilities (library, study spaces, etc.) are amazing & the students seem to genuinely enjoy being there & one another. UVM really fosters a positive environment that relies on cooperation rather than competition. It's definitely a place that I could see myself being happy at for 4 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The use of technology is very impressive. I sat in on a Convergence (PBL) class, and thought it was very neat how they used COMET to get information about the patient. Also, all material from your 4 years there stays on your COMET webpage and is organized nicely. Virtual microscope is a plus. The PBL faculty member was very nice and attentive to me. The students are chill. Burlington is pretty, but I am partial to New England anyway. I was also impressed by the undergrad institutions represented by the fellow applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"Curriculum sounds great, COMET is cool, everybody seems relaxed and chill" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions office, students, $12500 UVM GRANT for students who qualify financially, how new everything is and how much more money they are planning to put into upgrades, the school is attached to the hospital, VIC, COMET, the doctor teaching the Generations class on herpes, elective rotations at any hospital in the country, massive amounts of electives, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"setting of school is gorgeous (right on lake with mountains in background). undegrad campus is right there so you can use gym, library, etc. This school is a hidden gem--top notch research especially with translational applications, top 5 in US for primary care, and state of the art new facilities for both the med school and hospital which is 150 feet away from the school! The facilities are just amazing, you will have to see for yourself, very 21'st century with awesome architecture. Curriculum seems very forward thinking. Financial aid talk was best I have seen and answered many questions other schools couldn't. The students we met genuinely seemed like they were stoked on the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"very supportive environment, integrated curriculum, very laid back students" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students! I really felt like I clicked with them. The integrated curriculum has TONS going for it. The centralized online repository for lecture notes, study materials, exam questions, and the student-updated wiki for each class. The easygoing collegial atmosphere that drips off of the students. The town is beautiful and has progressive politics. The compression of the front part of the curriculum allows students to have much more clinical time than at other schools. You receive a numerical grade that then translates into pass/fail/honors. Some students don't seem overworked or stressed at all. All exams are board multiple-choice format." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly everyone was. How technology is integrated into the curriculum. Students take the USMLE Step 1 in January of their 2nd year, leaving more time for clinical rotations/electives." More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"Everybody was incredibly friendly, the Dean of the college spoke to us and asked us for questions, my interviewer and I actually left the room to go look at things during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town of Burlington (New England quaint yet liberal-minded and open-armed in a mid-western kind of way). I found it an idyllic place to study for 4 years, as well as to raise a family or retire. Also - the facilities - the new medschool building, the new hospital atrium and communicore additions with a new medical library - they are simply out of this world modern and cool. There's twisting metal surfaces that remind me of Frank Gehry's Bilbao museum and the Seattle Project for Music. Small Group rooms have 20'' LCD's connected to digital microcopes, large whiteboards, 42'' plasmas, a conference table with electrical and ethernet hookups, etc. And huge windows that give on the main plaza between the school and hospital. Spectacular facilities, truly worthy of an upscale architecture consortium." More from this Member | Report Response

"The VIC is an excellent program. It allows for early clinical experience, proper and thorough intergration of the basic science and clinical sciences, ethical/medical leadership/teamwork group discussions, the re-learning method to reinforce material over the course of the four years spent in medical school and much more. Additionally, a lot of construction went into the new areas and availability of course materials. The standardized patient facility is excellent as well.

She responded to my answers, helped conversation to flow, and told me at the end that she thought the interview had gone well. It was nice that she told me what she was thinking, it showed that she was sensitive enough to know that that would be the question that would be burning in my mind when I left. It made it much easier to wait the three months it took for the decision to come. I was accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

They gave a 1/2 hour financial aid talk which was boring but VERY informative and gave very important info. My interviewer was very sweet and nice and asked many questions and I felt like I was better able to represent myself at this interview than at any others. Burlington is a very nice little town and a friend who goes to UVM says the town is a blast year round.

"Everything, I was in beautiful Burlington for two perfect fall days, the city is small but fantastic. The school itself is finishing lots of new construction and is in the 2nd year of a massive curriculum change. The new curriculum sounds great, lots of integrated learning, very open to student input. It utilizes a lot of new tech as well (like integrating imaging--X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound--into all the courses from the getgo) they give you a new dell laptop 1st year which you can buy for $1 3rd year, it has everything you need to do classwork from home if you need to or learn better that way. However, MOST impressive were the students, all the 1st and 2nd years had a major exam the next day and they all seemed low-stress and would stop us to ask how things were going and give us advice on how to impress our interviewers. They all seemed really happy with UVM, not just the folks that gave the tour but everyone I met." More from this Member | Report Response

You get the impression that they think they are at the best med school in the world -- they genuinely have no regrets coming here. The faculty really do care about teaching the students -- there personality pervades the feel of the campus: chill, fun-loving, hard-working, focused but also can see the big picture. The curriculum is great too. The length of the interview day is perfect: not a dull moment because talking to students filled up any free time, and it gave you a great impression of the whole of the school."

I was also very impressed by the flexible 3rd and 4th year schedule. Some students spend much of their clinical time in Portland, Maine (b/c they want to). Even though Burlington is very small, it has a lot to offer: the Church Street Marketplace, the mountains, and Lake Champlain.

"the area (Burlington) is small and isolated. It is cold for most part of the year." More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interviewer wouldn't enter into a dialogue with me. I expected a conversational-style interview from a place like UVM but got much the opposite. I understand that the interview is their chance to get to know us, but it's also helpful to be able to view them as people and possibly future colleagues." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital seemed pretty small compared to others I've seen. The interview itself felt like an hour-long interrogation, but perhaps I had just been spoiled by the conversational interviews I had at other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students take Step I in Feb. of second year (vs. May at other schools), and start clerkships right after that. This means the preclinical years are more intense than usual, because they have to cover 2 years' worth of material in 1 1/2 years.

My host studies 12 hours a day or more, and although he says there are students there who work harder than him, the students we had lunch with all seemed incredibly laid back and like they hardly worked hard at all.

"The library - visually interesting, but worthless as a study space, as there are maybe 50 seats for studying. The tour guides said it was only temporary, as there is major construction going on, but the "temporary" period will be during the next couple years, which is when we would all be there.

"There was nothing negative - though some people might feel a detraction from the small-townsy nature of Burlington, I fell in love with its New England charm and open-arms and minds. There are plenty of great restaurants (oh, the food is exquisitely tastey and fresh), plenty of bars downtown, a small outlet mall with the best shops (think Armani with outrageously low prices), and a movie theater, stage theater, etc. The one detraction I found was my interviewer - though nice, the particular ER physician I was assigned was kind of dead-pan and quiet and gave long piercing stares during my responses (felt like a renegade shrink at first), but the tone softened up later on. That said - everyone else seemed to have had very calming, conversational interviews. I seemed to have gotten one of those interviewers who enjoys making you feel uncomfortable to see how you gauge stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school overall claims to be a genuinely friendly, non-competitive environment. However, my interview was extremely cut-throat, and my interviewer seemed to dislike me and be biased against me from the very start. In reality, the school almost seemed a bit... communistic. Any sort of competitiveness or desire to accel was looked at negatively. Everyone is discouraged from studying alone. You are supposed to do just as well as everyone else, not any better."

"the interview. It focused on my weaknesses." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus - kind of quiet, students don't seem to be very involved in activities outside of school. Also not much research goes on there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student tour was the least impressive. I work at the school so I know what it has going for it. UVM is in the middle of a "Renaissance Project" so the construction makes things seem sort of in a disarray. i.e. the temporary library is not very appealing. I think that more focus could have been placed on the upcoming renovations. Also, seeing the anatomy lab would have been nice and also walking through the hospital where students do their clinical rotations might have made the school seem more appealing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost of the school, especially if you are from out of state." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is under renovation therefore we could only tour the older, more archaic portions of the school (which most likely were the motivation to renovate in the first place)." More from this Member | Report Response

"There wasn't much of a tour (which I didn't really care about, but someone else may), and while the main campus of UVM is very old and nice, the med school itself isn't that nice. However, they are doing a huge renovation which should be done in July 2005. If you can't stand/don't like cold, DON'T GO HERE! It was 30 degrees, ridiculously windy, and at times snowing. Oh and it's insanely expensive for out-of-staters." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, I was worried about clinical opportunities in such a small setting but they have students doing 3rd and 4th year work in NYC, Boston, and internationally even though their primary sites are Burlington and Portland, ME. Also, with a new curriculum some of the students were concerned about the USMLE pass rate. The man that gave us our intro to the school (and was a big part of the new curriculum) is one of the directors (or something intimately involved) with writing the USMLE and he put concerns to rest. It is also one of the MOST expensive schools out there, but hey, if we didn't love debt we wouldn't apply to med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour guides who seemed to think they were "cool" for giving the tour and talking to prospective students. 1 girl seemed tired, 1 girl seemed not very intelligent, 1 girl was both intelligent and informative.

" More from this Member | Report Response

"too cold for too long, medical school is under much renovation until 2005, diversity of patients is nonexistant. everyone in vermont is 90% caucasian white catholics as i was told by medical students there. I went to a pizza uno on route 7 headed toward burlington (do not go there) and there were blatant racism in my face by everyone who worked there. also during the tour at uvm, for lunch in the cafeteria, the cashier ladies were very rude and almost insulting (ex- i tried to add a candybar to my meal and they wouldn't allow me to do so just because i handed my voucher in 2 seconds before). give me a break. the student in front of me already handed her ticket in and was adding to her tray! unbelievable. ignorance and racism is still rampant here in burlington, although i did meet numerous friendly and nice people on the uvm campus.

"Construction won't be done until 2006. That's not really their fault though. Students have to compete for study space in the meantime. It takes a lot of travel time to get to Burlington. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Burlington is a wealthy, homogeneous town. My interviewer reflected that Burlington was not like the rest of Vermont, in that Vermont has serious health problems related to access and the issues that come with a rural environment. Burlington just felt a little too perfect." More from this Member | Report Response

"the fact that it seems that construction will be ongoing while our entering class would be there; the current facilities are a little dated" More from this Member | Report Response

"Burlington is smaller than I thought and there is not much of a "metropolitan area." It's kind of funny that UVM considers Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME to be their "urban" hospital. I'm not sure what I think about the new curriculum either." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they give a $12500 grant to any student who qualifies. For an OOS student, this cuts the costs down to about $58000. Still a lot of money, but far more reasonable and very comparable to my IS schools. It's based on your FAFSA and has nothing to do with merit (they also have merit scholarships).

"I really enjoyed my time in Vermont!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like my interviewer, he ahd me go through my entire application and didn't leave room for discussion. Because of this I did not feel like he wanted to know me and my goals in hoping for an acceptance to medical school, instead it seemed like he just wanted to know what I had done.

"Great school, great program." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great school, though the type of environment it's in (socially and geographically) may not be for everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was very relaxed, but it depends completely on the interviewer. Some interviewees said that theirs went down a list of questions that included healthcare and ethics. I think either format could be advantageous and my advice is to just be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school...faculty truly care about the students and work together in a collaborative learning environment. Students match into great specialties...the extra time for clinical rotations is a huge plus." More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM is my top choice. It is such a positive place to be - students and faculty were all very welcoming, and many wished us luck as they saw us waiting to be interviewed. The technology is awesome and the Integrated Curriculum is unmatched. Fletcher Allen would be a wonderful place to train, as well. I'd recommend GOING to your interview if you are invited, even if you aren't used to being in a rural area. UVM is the place to be!" More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM, thumbs up" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school and hospital are beautiful and physically attached. Students seem happy and relaxed and the environment is very collaborative. The curriculum is truly one of a kind and will give you much more clinical experience than other programs." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview lasted about an hour, approximately 10 minutes of which I spoke. I was worried that my interviewer wouldn't be able to get any sort of impression of me. He said I did well, but I'm not entirely sure how he came to that conclusion, seeing as I hardly got to talk to him." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, just not on my wavelength (I'm from NYC). Of my +10 interviews this was probably the worst, the guy was unyielding and not very friendly. But he might have been this way because he saw through my BS about how I liked mountains." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a good day. I think they should shorten the first morning presentation by the admissions person--it was way too long and the speaker sounded like he was on autopilot and droning on and on. I know they are are probably trying to make sure they cover everything but it really was too long. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is not very well integrated/diverse. If you are a multicultural person, it is probable that you feel isolated. There is lady that always sings when everyone gets together to meet the dean or whatever. OMG! she needs to stop that charade because we end up clapping or fake a smile even though we were not impressed for one bit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Considering UVM's high primary care ranking, I expected to see a school that pushed its students in that direction. However, I got the sense that they encouraged any and all career paths. The match list is impressive (probably due in part to the innovative/integrated curriculum), with people going into all sort of fields. That being said, UVM is not a research school, and when I asked about research, people were a little unsure of the opportunities -- still, I'm sure they can be found if you look hard enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM seems like a wonderful place. The town seems nice, everyone is friendly, and the students look happy. My interviewer was incredibly kind and really seemed to care about getting to know me; he had obviously read my application closely and asked me questions that were tailored to my situation. I had a very positive visit to UVM, and would love to go there if I get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Once you visit it's easy to see why they rank so high for primary care. The VIC is amazing and logical. I don't see why every school doesn't have their curriculum set up this way. You take step 1 anytime in February of your 2nd year. This way you get to start rotations extremely early. My interviewer was great. She clearly took the time to read my application in great detail because we talked about almost every activity I had listed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"If I was to open a med school and need a model of how to run a good interview day, this is it. 9:30 start (not 8, god that kills those of us coming from west coast), learn about school, tour, then interview. This school is phenomenal, I can't believe I almost didn't apply here. The VIC (curriculum) is a very progressive systems based learning mode with lots of PBL and the longitudinal patient care program seems to be excellent. Students here actually take the step 1 early and have time for clerkships in year 2, which allows more time for research or elective clerkships in later years--students say they killed the boards with the VIC approach I got my acceptance email recently and I enjoyed my day so much that it made a UC school I visited look pale by comparison. if you get an interview here go, but beware, you may full under UVM's spell :" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great day and I enjoyed imagining myself as a medical student there next year (crossing fingers!) Appreciated the friendliness of everyone I met and the vegetarian food available.

"Got there at 9:15am and was picked up by an admissions person at 10am and taken to a conference room where we had an overview of UVM, a couple more staff/faculty members stopped by to welcome us, which was nice. Then we had the financial aid talk followed by one of the deans who came to speak to us about UVM. Next, we had lunch/tour with the med students and then were dropped off to get picked up by our interviewers. While waiting several med students dropped by to comment, answer questions, and wish us luck." More from this Member | Report Response

"The actual interview was great very honest people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school in a beautiful, but bubble-like location. Fantastic new curriculum, great use of technology. This place will prepare you to be a great physician, but limited experience to urban hospitals, and Burlington is small. Had a great time, though. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience. The students, faculty and admissions office staff were all very nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrival was 9:45, which was nice. It was a little hard to figure out where to go from the website, so you might want to plan ahead. They present some curriculum and financial aid stuff, and do the ''tell us something interesting about yourselves'' thing. (Note that they stress that you take ''only one class at a time'', but if you get a student to show you their actual schedule you will see that while they are studying one general area at a time, they are taking multiple lectures a day on different sub-aspects of that area, plus labs and other stuff. I think they try to sell it as one class so it doesn't seem like as much work as it is. They also try to stress that ''you meet your first patient during orientation'', but this is just a talk by someone with a particular disease; you really meet your first patient the spring of first year.) Lunch with students was tasty and informative, and about 5 or 6 students showed up, which was nice. Tour is all indoors (so we didn't have to go out in the snow), which is nice, but we saw hardly anything (they said we couldn't see the anatomy lab due to strict VT HIPPAA laws). Interviews are all in the afternoon. My interviewer came to pick me up 10 minutes early. Very conversational but it was clear she had some stuff she really wanted to know about me. She asked me several times if I had any more questions, even though I said no the second time." More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxed, mostly conversational. " More from this Member | Report Response

"While I heard it was meant to be low stress, it was actually worse than I expected. I interviewed in an examination room in the hospital and was uncomfortable throughout the whole process. When I mentioned a stats class I took five years ago, the interviewer drew a graph and asked me to explain the significance of some of the points... that was unexpected. In general, while it was conversational, it didn't appear that the interviewer cared much about getting to know me. He would routinely ask questions and then not let me answer fully. It was kind of disappointing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely my first choice! I really hope I get accepted!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty good. I always freak out prior to these experiences, but staff was friendly and welcoming. One student who lead the tour was a little hardcore and told interviewers he had a tough ethical question in interview...kinda set a scary tone for a little while. The pediatrician I interviewed with was so nice, and only asked me one question about a bad grade I had had that I kinda struggled explaining. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Fantastic experience overall. They really have a lot of confidence about their school. The students seem to love the curriculum. I went in with high expectations and the school far exceeded them. I'd absolutely love to attend. They seemed incredibly nontrad friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"I applied to UVM back in July and was invted to interview in February, a pleasant surprise. It was a low-stress day and totally positive. I'm a poor interviewer so I doubt I did well, but I'm glad I got the chance. They seem to put a lot of thought into which interviewer you get. My interviewer did a good job, really knew my file." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer obviously took the time to review my file--asked very specific questions about my academics,volunteering. It seemed more like a discussion rather than just being asked questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"I walked away from UVM even more impressed than I had been prior to the interview. The staff was quite friendly, helpful and sincere. The students seem well-rounded, interested in having lives outside of the classroom and collaborate well with each other. I really got a positive impression from this school (though I was expecting my experience to be pretty positive, the great energy flowing out of this place blew me away)." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was a bit aloof/cryptic but we covered some areas of my AMCAS in great depth. The interviewer had obviously taken notes on my AMCAS ahead of time. However, I left feeling as though I hadn't spoken my case fully." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive, the interview was very non-standard. I wasn't asked why I wanted to be a doctor, why UVM, any of that stuff..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just relax and answer your questions truthfully and without much ado about nothing. I remember about 5 interviewees who told me they were asked something unconventional, one even had one of those imponderable ethical questions - and when I consulted with Admissions staff, they nodded and admitted they like seeing how you react to a stressful situation in which there's no way out. (They're not mean about it, mind you). They'll just give you en ethical preponderance that has no clear answer - and they want to hear you say - A) no real answer, B) I'd have to discuss that with someone who's an Ethics expert, C) don't appear flustered MOST IMPORTANTLY; they want you to seem humble and calm about not knowing how to approach that mountain of a topic."

"It was very pleasent. After arrival, all applicants waited together, then we were taken to a conference room where we heard about the school from multiple aspects (curriculum, residency, tuition...etc). Then, we spoke to students and had lunch. Then, we toured the school and interviewed. Interviewers were very nice, and it was a great experience overall. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The entire experience was really positive. My interviewer had my AMCAS and UVM applications, along with a list of questions he could choose from. The interview itself was pretty conversational, he would ask questions from his list and put them in the context of my experiences, eg. So how did experience X help you to decide the MD route? At the end of the interview he asked if I had any questions, then talked about the fact that despite being in rural Vermont, you'll still get good exposure to a broad base of patients. During the interview it felt like the interviewer was really just trying to get to know and befriend me rather than a grill and drill session. Overall, quite a good experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't love the big group dynamic of the day (13 interviewees) but otherwise everyone was friendly and it felt personal. The location is beautiful so if you have the time, stay an extra day and hang out. Curriculum, technology and staff are top notch. I would love to be there next fall (or July, really)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview! Interviewer was really relaxed and easygoing. No really tough questions. I found out earlier that he was the one interviewer who was tough but also really fought for you if he liked you. I didn't find him to be tough, but I'm sure glad he fought for me! " More from this Member | Report Response

"There weren't really any questions, per se. We just had a directed conversation. The intervewer knew my AMCAS inside and out and wasn't afraid to touch on anything. I didn't handle the format well; although, in retrospect, it was much more enjoyable than a full-on interview. Remember to be calm and don't fall for the 15sec. pause following your answer. Just say what you mean and be confident, yet respectful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer didn’t let me talk a lot. He seemed to talk for the entire time. But we hit it off. He liked my background, and we shared surprisingly similar interest (especially when it came to the topic about global AIDS epidemic). He even referred me a book, which I bought and currently am reading. Very very interesting indeed. At the end of the interview, he told me straight up ''I would love to see you here, you are UVM material''. Was surprised I got waitlisted, but, I think he convinced them to accept me...I was accepted 2 weeks after I was initially waitlisted. Woohoo!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was pleasant and low-key. Started with presentation on the VIC and admissions process, then lunch with students and brief tour, then interview. I stayed with a student and had a chance to see downtown and hang out with some students the night before." More from this Member | Report Response

"My advice: -try to arrive early enough in Burlington so you have to time to walk around and smell the roses. Trust me, they smell good ;) -do not waste your time preparing for ethics questions here, their goal is to get to know you to HELP you. The interviewer is not on the Executive Committee. Rather, they leave a 1-page summary of your interview in your file with everything else, and your entire file is reviewed later. -The school is a non-competitive community that is very tight-knit. It's not a shark tank like most pre-med filled institutions. If you're into that, definately a good place to interview. If not, have fun in the tool box." More from this Member | Report Response

The new curriculum and facilities are impressive. My interview was very laid-back. I didn't feel like I was being grilled. If you don't mind the cold or living in a small city, then this is a great place to go to school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was centered more on my questions about the school and Burlington. My interviewer liked to talk, so most of the time I listened to him answer my questions. He asked only a couple of questions about me, which made me feel like he got no additional information than what was in my file. It was a different experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was suffering from a nasty cold, and so it was very hard to gauge his body language.

"It was great. I really loved the school. It is beautiful, typical new england style university with red brick. there still wasn't too much snow yet. I arrived late the night before my interview and without my luggage, so i was freaking out. took a cab to my host's house. she was really sweet and let me borrow clothes to sleep in and a towel. she took me downtown the next morning where i bought new clothes for my interview. i cabbed back to the university. the other interviewees were very friendly. we had an info session and all the staff were really fun and relaxed. not uptight at all. they explained the VIC curriculum which sounds really appealing. They integrate everything like embroylogy, histology, anatomy, biochem, and physiology when working on parts of the body. so there is redundancy but in the short-term so it gets engrained. Not redundancy in the long term, where you visit systems months later like in a blocking curricullum. I was very impressed. They also take their boards really early-Feb. Then we were led on a tour and then waited for our interviews. mine went smoothly, i had a radiologist interview me. He's from burlington and very sweet. No hard questions.

" The school is great, but then again this was my first interview, so its hard to say if my interview experience went well or not. I stumbled on the difficult question, but other than that, I did not feel nervous at all. It was very conversational. The orientation day was very well organized and everyone was extremely nice and enthusiastic. You can really tell they were trying to sell their school. Also, I met a person from my high school all way in Vermont while we introduced ourselves. Other than that, people came from all over: Cali, Montana, Penn, Florida, Minnesota, and Connecticut.

The scenery is beautiful, there appears to be a lot going on at the lake and the downtown area is small and fun (like my undergrad college town). It may not be as warm as I am used to and I might not hear the expression "yall" for a while, but it would be an exciting experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer seemed tired, I think because 3 interviewers called in sick so he had to do alot of interviews that day. He seemed relaxed, and just had a few specific questions. I was somewhat surprised that he didn't ask me more questions, I asked him a few questions and we just kind of chatted for a while. I'm not sure if the fact that the interview seemed short was a good or bad sign. I came out of the interview with an ambiguous feeling." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mixed - some things very positive, others not so great" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was generally very easy going. My interviewer asked good questions and smiled. I could tell that she was making an effort to make me feel more relaxed. This was important because I want to go to a medical school that takes the quality of the students experience into account. I understand that professors and clinicians can not always be so empathetic but at least there seems to be an effort at UVM to treat medical students with respect. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my interviewer. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and everyone was very pleasant." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was, as most students describe, very laid back. My interviewer made a conscious effort to avoid the traditional, patronizing rhetoric and instead focused on those areas of my application that were really exceptional. There were no trick questions, just open-ended directional comments that allowed for a free flow of ideas." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admin director gave a little presentation about the admin & selection processs, which I thought was very nice of them to disclose. The staff & the students were very friendly & helpful. The inverview was very low-stress. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was over 60 minutes, but we talked the whole time. No question was too difficult, and the interviewer would "introduce" questions so I had time to think of answers while he was still technically asking the question. He was a good listener and seemed to actually care about the answers I was giving to his questions. The three listed below were three out of about 20 questions I was asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM was just full of extremely nice people. The students love it there, the faculty seem to love it, and people are smiling a lot!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer was very nice and friendly. He knew about my essays and seemed genuinely interested in the things I have done. If it ever got awkward, he was quick to move on and keep things running smoothly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Few concerns... Why is the female/male ratio tipped towards the female side more than any other medical school? An article at the school states that their admissions feel that women make more compassionate doctors than men. Do they really believe that? The curriculum is also brand new and seems to be untested. Students said there were problems with it and that it needed to be changed many times for it to work with the students' schedules. Nobody would answer how UVM students did on the national boards with the new curriculum which is suspicious. Sounds like you might be a guinea pig to test out their new project if you go there. Not so sure about that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was really comfortable and easy-going. UVM is a really great school and all the students were awesome. It's a good idea to prepare for some ethical questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive, my interviwer had clearly done a lot of looking at my AMCAS and supp. as they had a full page of questions based on my info. After the first couple questions we found some points of common interest to sidetrack us and just chatted for 90 minutes. I had a coughing fit during the interview which could have been a nightmare situation but my interviewer got me a pitcher and glass of water and put me at ease." More from this Member | Report Response

"While the actual interview experience went well because I hit it off on many fronts with the interviewer, I sensed fatique and forced excitement about the school from the tour guides. The new curriculum is young and so hard to say how well it is working. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was impressed with the school. My interviewer made little eye contact and made me more nervous than I should have been. The students here are friendly and more well-rounded and the school will have impressive facilities for the fall of 2005. I also really liked the town and surrounding area. With the exception of the somewhat odd interview, I had a positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"besides being a bigot, the interviewer was also a very bitter old man. the students seemed great though, but the experience only reaffirmed my desire to stay in a big city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful experience -- loved the people and the environment. Still waiting on the admissions committee to get back to me. Learned that they only review applicants 3 times a year (December, February, and April), so future applicants, try to interview before February if you can. They do waitlist most OOS applicants, so that is a drawback. The only thing keeping me from making Vermont my top choice (because I really do think I would be amazingly happy with my fellow students, the curriculum, and my training here) is the geographic location. Vermont is cold and rainy/snowy/sleety for much of the wintertime, and there really isn't much to do for a CA warmblood who doesn't ski, loves to run/bike/swim outdoors. Also as an ethnic minority who loves many ethnic foods, I'm worried about finding people of similar background and good restaurants. Still Burlington is a pretty charming town, the University of Vermont undergrads probably add life and vitality to the area, and the summertime will be great. Still undecided where to go if they accept me." More from this Member | Report Response

"interview was casual, everyone on the admissions staff are very very friendly and nice. the medical students were very welcoming. however, burlington is a small city, and i encountered obvious racism on more than one occasion. patients in the fletcher allen center are almost always white caucasians so not much diversity there. there are also not enough variety of medical procedures and cases, since nothing really happens in burlington. i also found out that clinicals are done in upstate ny and maine, both places i rather not be. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Hello everyone! I hope the information provided will be of good use to future applicants and good luck on the interviews! My interview here was the last day for the UVM season and there were 12 of us today. The schedule is as follows: @11am, Dean of Admissions presentation, Lunch with medical students, tour of the Given Building, Financial Aid Info, @2pm or 3pm, Interviews. My interviewer had already reviewed my file and application thoroughly, and asked a lot of questions about my activities and some parts of the essay. My interviewer was extremely friendly and smiled a lot, which made me feel more comfortable and relaxed during the interview. It was a great interview and many other students felt that their interviewers were great as well. In general, it was more conversational than the typical interview and I had a great time at UVM. Burlington is a quiet yet fun city with 40,000 people, so you must love the small city environment to be happy here. They generally wait-list many out-of-state applicants before making final decisions on acceptances. Good luck and God Bless everyone!" More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"I absolutely loved the school. The tuition is a bit pricey being out of state...but I would overlook that to attend UVM. Definately one of my top choices now. It will be a tough decision if I get in, but I would love to attend this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a VERY pleasant experience and I am really impressed with the school...despite the heavy $56,000/year to attend UVM!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. Out of the interviews that I have taken, this was by far the least stressful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, this is a very nice school and would consider going there if accepted for any program. A little expensive but let's face it, financial consideration is the last thing on my mind right now. Burlington is not diverse but the people are respectful and cool. I actually overtipped my taxi driver because he gave me a lot of tips about UVM and Burlington which helped me in the interviews. Cool place but I am a city blood and that may be a problem because I do not consider Burlington to be a city." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had 2 interviewers interview me at the same time. I thought Vermont would be "low stress." Nope! It was the most stressful of 8 interviews I had! I felt like I was being drilled by my interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"ppl were really nice. they have a new curriculum now (not really tested but supposedly they really care about students feedbacks and will readily improve upon the curriculum)... so applicants this yr are pretty much guinea pigs..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't know that a medical school interview could be fun until I went to UVM. I had the best time there. If you go, I hope you have as good of a time as I did!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had the most overall fun at UVM compared to all the other schools I have visited. This was surprising since I wasn't expecting much from this school. But they definitely changed my mind about them. They may not be a top tier school but I am sure going to treat them like one." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students are all down to earth and very happy, they are an active bunch so if you despise the outdoors uvm is definately not your cup of tea. the class is also very diverse with traditional and non-traditional students-- the atmosphere was also very supportive, the students know a ton about each other too and that was nice to see- ps...ask about "Man-cave" and play a round of foos-ball" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer seemed very dubious from the beginning of my interest in medicine. And seemed to try from the beginning to belittle my interest in medicine, and show how clever she was." More from this Member | Report Response

"I stayed overnight with a student host which was helpful in finding out more about the school. This would be an awesome place to go to school if you don't mind working with a less diverse population than in a big city. If your social scene looks like late nights at loud dance clubs, don't come. If your social scene looks like a long hard day skiing and then chilling at a cool coffee bar with friends afterwards, this may be the right place." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer knew my AMCAS application very well. She had specfic points that we talked about. The whole interview was very conversational and we talked alot about ethical issues, almost the entire interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, especially if you're interested in doing rural medicine. No gun shot wounds here, more like "a cow bit my hand" or "hit my hand with an axe while chopping wood" accidents. Good luck everyone!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive experience, and changed my opinion, I am now strongly considering comming here if accepted. Most enjoyable interview yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't expect to like the school, but I really liked it. Students would come up to us and talk to us and most people seemed really happy and friendly. My interviewer was very funny and nice and the interview was very laid back and short. UVM has definitely become higher on my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"all in all, a very pleasant experience. the school impressed me moreso than i thought it would and it's now in my top 4. the students love the place and i got a good vibe from the faculty/administration in that i feel they really care about their students. once the construction is complete, they'll have beautiful facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview itself was pretty relaxed and purely conversational until the last fifteen minutes or so when my interviewer realized that he had a page full of questions that he had not asked and started spitting them out one-by-one. Although the interview itself was fine, but nothing special, the overall visit to the campus was enjoyable. The admissions staff and students are very friendly. They love UVM and seem to have a relatively laid back attitude on life." More from this Member | Report Response

"On the whole it was a good experience (though there were some negatives). The new cirriculum seems well thought of and is continuing to improve (it is a work in progress). Heavy contstruction, comtinuing through 2005, is a major factor (not their fault, just bad timing for those of us applying this year). " More from this Member | Report Response

"we didn't have to be at the school until 10:45 which was nice; got presentation by assistant dean, lunch with med students and financial aid talk before our interviews. all the current students seemed to really love the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I found it interesting that the day didn't start until 11am, typical of the laid-back Vermont atmosphere I guess. The financial aid presentation was informative, if daunting (approaching $60k a year for out-of-staters). Interview was relatively low-stress, although we did delve into some of the trickier ethical questions. Burlington is very affluent and yuppie; there were as many slides in the initial presentation of the yacht club, ben and jerry's, and the view of the lake from the presenter's back yard as there were on the actual curriculum and hospital. Burlington is hardly a city, so be prepared for rural life. And cold, snowy winters. But you should already be expecting this. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff puts together a good day for applicants. Interviewees get lots of information about the area and the school. The financial aid presentation is a good feature. When the staffer passed out the information on indebtedness, you could see the faces of some applicants just drop. Those numbers definately test your committment. My interviewer was a retired faculty member. He was well-versed in my application package and he had some pertinent questions. As another poster noted, he left numerous pregnant pauses. I felt no need to fill the silence. He didn't seem bummed by it either. He harped a bit on some elements of my background but I answered those questions and moved on. I did spend a fair amount of the interview disagreeing with him on several issues. I was disappointed that he was unable to answer some specific questions regarding the curriculum change. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school atmosphere, students help each other here. Do you know how much tuition is for out-of-staters? Would love to have another interviewer who is interested in getting to know me individually." More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM is a nice place to interview. They are very friendly and offer a financial aid meeting. It was a very low-stress day and the students were very friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"UVM was great! They designed the day so that we didn't have to leave the building, which was great b/c it was so cold. People were very nice and seemed genuinely happy to be there. UVM seems like a wonderful place to study medicine, and I was impressed with everyone I met. I was interviewed by 2 people, which sort of psyched me out at first but ended up being fine. If accepted to UVM, I would have a hard time turning it down in favor of another school (even a much higher ranked school), because it seems like such a great environment to be in. " More from this Member | Report Response

"clinical professor was an awesome interviewer. very relaxed experience, more like a conversation of him trying to get to know me to see if i would fit in at UVM. no stupid ethical questions asked. a couple of questions asking me to draw on real-life experiences though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Burlington and UVM rock. I'd come here in a flash. I absolutely loved the place. The town and it's inhabitants are Birkenstock-friendly and eco-conscious. I really enjoyed my time there. My interview experience was also very, very positive. I did not feel intimidated to be myself around my interviewer--he did an excellent job of making me feel at ease. The interview was very conversational, very laid back and non-stressful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked uvm and would definetely accept an offer of acceptance. the faculty I met were approachable as were the students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Though Vermont MD/PhD program is relatively new (in its 3rd year) and small, the students seems happy and the faculty seems nice and enthusiastic. Research programs are well defined with appropriate themes but there are plenty of opportunity for interdisciplinary research. It's cold up here but the people are super friendly. I was arranged for staying the night before at the Radisson overlooking lake Champlain. Come early and you can watch the spectacular sunset over the mountains and the lake right from your room. The dinner on the night before the interview was a good ways to learn about the school from the director and the students. I interviewed with 2 MDs 1 MD/PhD student 1 PhD faculty and a brief talk with the MD/PhD director. I was interviewed in a room that has the view of the Green mountain. It was a really relaxing view and helped initiating small talks. I stongly consider going here if accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"If it cost less it would definitely be my first choice. Might be anyway." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid back and the interviewer really focused on how I would balance my personal and professional life. Everyone was friendly, but for me, UVM is too small and too expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing school. Super cool people there. But also a super expensive place to get heavily in debt." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day went very smoothly except for the interview. We first had a presentation on the new curriculum, then had lunch with the medical students and a tour. They were all very down to earth and had good things to say of the school. Then had a presentation regarding financial aid (very expensive for out of staters). Then the interview, which was very slow, confusing, and I am completely unsure if it went well or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview day was really relaxed, but the actual interview was very intense. it was fun - my interviewers were very nice, and the interview took the form of an intense conversation. not stressful, but i felt like i had to be alert and really think about my answers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good day. Very friendly people who all seem to work together. I would deffinately suggest this school to others and I will probably go if I am accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school and the program. I didn't feel like my interviewer represented the school's image. However, other interviewee's I talked to seemed to have had laid-back interviews. Unless my interviewer was trying to test me, that person was very rude. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The people of vermont are very friendly but can't say the same for the interviewers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer came across as serious, yet down-to-earth. The questions he asked were fairly general in nature, however there were some that required a great deal of thought. He certainly made sure that my responses were not a bunch of bosh; he expanded upon nearly every question. I am not sure what type of impression I left on my interviewer. I attribute my ambiguity largely in part to the fact that I was extremely nervous; and because I felt it difficult to truly express who I am in just 30 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"We began in the morning with a brief presentation on the school, focusing on the new curriculum. We then had lunch with students, a tour of the campus and then interviews. I had a chance to explore the campus after the tour and before the interview which was nice. My interview was pretty laid back- we mostly talked about my research experience and volunteer experience- what I had learned from these." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall, fantastic. everyone was very friendly - med students would randomly approach us to see if we had questions, wanted info, one even took me on an informal tour of campus! seemed like a very comfortable place to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really easy. We arrived around 10:45, were presented with stats about the school and the new curriculum, ate lunch (free), took a tour and then had our interview. It was tiring to have the interview at the end." More from this Member | Report Response

"the best interview experience i could ever hope for. the interviewer was extremely encouraging and sympathetic to my background, very easy to talk to, share jokes with... a wonderful experience overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"i didn't feel my interviewer was hostile towards me, in fact he was pretty nice, a sweet retired doctor/professor; i just felt i couldn't read him and could not connect; the interview also didn't move forward very well; sometimes i felt we got sidetracked for relatively long moments; i felt he didn't ask very good questions; he would mention something from my application and then stop and smile at me and i didn't know if i should just talk about it or if there was a particular question to answer; it was just an odd interview that felt very long and drawn out; i was exhausted by the end of it; i tried very hard to keep the ball rolling, but it was tough, and i usually have an easier time talking to people; the students were very nice and friendly and seemed happy to be there; i think my experience here was unusual b/c i heard from other people that they had very good interviews" More from this Member | Report Response
