What are your general comments?

"The facilities, campus, and students were very impressive. The interview itself was what was a negative experience for me. EVMS will surely scare away potentially good students becuase their interview process is poor. It needs to become a better school before it requires one to undergo such a painstaking process for admission. Its lack of research opporunities is a concern for me, but if not accepted into a more research oriented school I would go here for the location and the congeniality of its students.
