What are your general comments?

"I arriced the night before the itnerview and stayed with a 1st year host, which I totally recommend doing. I got a lot of my questions answered about the school, the interview, and going through the med school process as a whole. Plus I was able to go to classes the next day before the interview. There are 6 people interviewing on one day so it's not a huge crowd of people. Everyone says it, but the interviews at UVA are VERY relaxed, and the interviewers are very nice. You get the sense that they are totally on your side and really do want to know you better. One interviewer pulled heavily from my AMCAS personal statement rather than my UVA essays. This was the best possible interview experience I could have hoped for." Report Response
