What impressed you positively?

"How well organized the interview day was and how amazingly friendly and happy students seemed to be, even in the midst of exams. UVM really makes the effort to make you feel comfortable and relaxed the day of your interview. I also enjoyed my fellow interviewees! Positive vibes all around. If you partake in any kind of winter outdoor activities, this is the place to be! If you ride, check out the Burton Snowboard Factory store...that place is like a shrine!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. " Report Response
