What impressed you negatively?

"Burlington is smaller than I thought and there is not much of a "metropolitan area." It's kind of funny that UVM considers Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME to be their "urban" hospital. I'm not sure what I think about the new curriculum either." Report Response

"The dry cleaners at home gave me someobody else's suit, and there are very few stores open before 10:00 am to buy or rent formal wear." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was pretty relaxed and purely conversational until the last fifteen minutes or so when my interviewer realized that he had a page full of questions that he had not asked and started spitting them out one-by-one. Although the interview itself was fine, but nothing special, the overall visit to the campus was enjoyable. The admissions staff and students are very friendly. They love UVM and seem to have a relatively laid back attitude on life." Report Response
