What impressed you negatively?

"The high stress level of interview, but it wasn't that bad. As always, stick to one side of the issue and do not waiver; there is never a correct answer to an ethical question. The teaching/lab facilities were slightly worse than average." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Norfolk is congested and can make you late for the interview. Also, the area around the school is really nice (but I hear there are bad areas). A high percentage of students enter the military scholarship, because tuition is extremely high (esp. for out of state-residents). There is a Navy base nearby." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I left feeling good about the school. Its commitment to primary care in Virginia is nice for those seeking it. The tuition is too high and the school is not well known. The students are friendly. The library and children hospital are very nice, but other facilities are below average. Primary care is the focus, not research." Report Response
