What impressed you positively?

"The students. We caught the first-years on neuroanatomy exam day, yet they still took time to talk to us during their breaks and a few had lunch with us. Medical school is on main University campus, providing a nice academic environment as well as use of University facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A lot of construction; things will be nice in a few years, but right now it is a bit tough to get around and the temporary library is a little cramped. UVM tutition for out-of-staters, and Burlington itself for that matter, is very expensive; you definitely pay for the lake and mountain views" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"A LOT of Californians; more than half the candidates that day, the tour guide, the asst. dean of admissions, etc... I think I read that Californians make up 40% of the class." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. " Report Response
