What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The car ride from Manchester, NH to Burlington seems long, especially if you're getting off a plane coming from the west coast. It's a long travel day. Oh and if you go clothes or shoes shopping in Burlington (and I think anywere else in VT) and you don't spend over $100, no tax is charged. I love the state of Vermont." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a very positive interview experience. My interviewer did an excellent job of making me feel like I could be myself around him--not too formal. We covered a lot of ground during the interview. I felt like he had a pretty honest view of the person that I am. UVM really makes the effort to present themselves in the best possible light without bragging. My interview day at UVM was very well laid out for everyone involved. I never felt like I was just sitting around, waiting for stuff to happen. The student tour guides and fellow interviewees were amusing and easy to talk to. The campus is beautiful. The town of Burlington is Birkenstock friendly and eco-conscious! And if you ski/board, you have great snow/resources to take advantage of." Report Response
