What are your general comments?

"UVA SOM is awesome in terms of admistrative works. I interviewed on 2/11 and got an ACCEPTANCE (Yeah, baby) letter sent out on Valentine's day ( 2/14 Sweet!). The interviewers were friendly and tried to put you at ease. Just be sincere and talked with passion because it will show on your face. I am a nontraditional (5 yrs out of school) Virginia resident with stats (GPA, MCAT) below their average but made up for them in many other aspects such as extracirriculars and research (they love research). Good Luck to you all and See ya' in the Fall." Report Response
