What was the most interesting question?

"Many questions asked me to draw from experiences and think aobut things a little more in depth than in some interviews. For example, did a particular patient stand out to me? Has a patient/family member of a patient ever angered me? What was my favorite book? Why was it my favorite book? What about the characters could I relate to?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Do you really think you have enough clinical experiences to know what being a doctor is all about? (This caught me off guard a bit, and I'm not sure I responded as well as I would have liked)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, talked to a physician about our health care system, read up on current events a little" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The people at UVM and in Burlington were so friendly. It seems like a wonderful place to spend 4 years. Classes are small, the curriculum is exciting, and clinical exposure begins early. I was also very impressed by the flexible 3rd and 4th year schedule. Some students spend much of their clinical time in Portland, Maine (b/c they want to). Even though Burlington is very small, it has a lot to offer: the Church Street Marketplace, the mountains, and Lake Champlain. It has some great restaurants and shops as well as a really progressive feel for a small town. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was -18F one day I was there!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class of 2003 will be the guinea pigs for the new curriculum. I knew this somewhat but did not realize much of it has not been tested out before. 80% of UVM students are non-traditional!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UVM was great! They designed the day so that we didn't have to leave the building, which was great b/c it was so cold. People were very nice and seemed genuinely happy to be there. UVM seems like a wonderful place to study medicine, and I was impressed with everyone I met. I was interviewed by 2 people, which sort of psyched me out at first but ended up being fine. If accepted to UVM, I would have a hard time turning it down in favor of another school (even a much higher ranked school), because it seems like such a great environment to be in. " Report Response
