What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews and they are very laid back. I would bring some reading material or something because they usually run late and if you have an unlucky draw (like I did) you could be waiting for an hour both before and in between interviews....2 hours is a lot of time to kill... The tour was phenomenal though and their facilities are gorgeous. The curriculum is pretty traditional, but there is a decent emphasis on problem-based learning, small group learning, and early patient interaction. I was also pleased to learn that they have a fair amount of study-abroad electives in the 4th year. We had a really fancy lunch with 3 4th year students and they all said that 4th year was VERY flexible and laid back. Plus Cvill is a nice place and there is a lot to do." Report Response
