What are your general comments?

"After having been brainwashed into thinking that EVMS was a low-quality school, the interview day totally changed my perceptions. It doesn't have the reputation because it is a relatively young school, but I was impressed by their board scores. Their standardized patient program is well-developed, and they truly do emphasize the clincal aspect of medicine. Everyone, without exception, was very nice and friendly, from the people in the administration office to the random med students who walked by. The interview was very low-stress, and everyone did their best to put us at ease. Also, my interviewer told me flat out - if you want to do research, go to UVA; if you want to focus on the patient, come to EVMS." Report Response
