How did you prepare for the interview?

"This website, EVMS' website, AMA, current health issues" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The Children's Hospital was wonderful. On Fridays, interviewees are shows the Children's hospital, so I wasn't able to see the main hospital. The library is nice and the students are really happy and actually have time to have social lives. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The Physiology lab seemed pretty old and rather small. The school does not require you to purchase a laptop (which may be a plus in your opinion), so everyone does not have access to the same software, and there is not wireless internet at the school. The school is underfunded and students made it clear that that is probably the only problem. Change is hard to make due to the money shortage. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my interview would not be stressful. I don't think that all interviews were as easy going as mine though. There were supposed to be 3 people interviewing me, I don't know what happened, but I was happy about it. Oh yeah, the school is really expensive for out of state students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was really organized. We got a really nice demonstration of how the standardized patients are used and how they give feedback. The tour of the hospital was nice and for the tour of the school, there were several groups. The lunch was okay and the financial aid presentation was very helpful." Report Response
