What impressed you positively?

"Pretty campus. Recently switched to pass/fail (about time!). Well-reputed residency placement and above average board scores." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Very very very conservative school. If you like progressive and liberal atmospheres, this is not your school. Not much diversity in the student body. Town was boring. Curriculum was overly traditional for my tastes. Too much tertiary care and the "Level 1" trauma center was sincerely laugable-- it seemed like half the patients were just hung over frat boys from the undergrad campus." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I didn't like UVA as much as I thought I was going to. Not a bad experience, just not the school for me. I think UVA gets a bit overly-reputed to us out-of-staters since it's flanked by nearby superior schools, i.e. Hopkins to the north, Duke to the south." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviews themselves went very well. Exteremely conversational and nothing out of the blue. Tour was nice, and followed by an (excessively) regal lunch. Overall though I didn't get hot feeling from the school and the town, so if I get in, I most probably won't be going. I've seen too many schools with more to offer. " Report Response
