What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Burlinton International Airport is NOT AN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. It's more like a terminal of a local , jet only airports. The security was up my a** and I hate small jets." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, this is a very nice school and would consider going there if accepted for any program. A little expensive but let's face it, financial consideration is the last thing on my mind right now. Burlington is not diverse but the people are respectful and cool. I actually overtipped my taxi driver because he gave me a lot of tips about UVM and Burlington which helped me in the interviews. Cool place but I am a city blood and that may be a problem because I do not consider Burlington to be a city." Report Response
