What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 10 a.m. to wait for our tour guides. There are six interviewees three girls three guys. The med students then take you to a fancy lunch, which could explain their budget problems and then take you on the tour. When you return there is a schedule that is followed for the interviews which are 30 minutes each one is a student the other is a faculty member. Watch out for the student. I was just told to talk about something anything I wanted which was pretty hard to do. Afterwards there is an optional financial aide session. Nice touch since they assume "students asked to interview at THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA are more than likely asked to interview elsewhere and have probably already had their fair share of Fin. Aide...so true. Overall the school is great and the students seem very happy." Report Response
