What are your general comments?

"EVMS is way underrated. The school has very solid curriculum that emphiseizes human values and clinical skills. Their standardized patient program is among top 3 in the nation. If you are looking for school that will make you the best physician you can be, EVMS is the one. The interview itself was really low stress. It consisted of 3 people: student, adcom member and scientist. They had really great sense of humor and the interview itself felt more like a conversation than an interview (which hard to accomplish because because its 3 against 1). They did ask however about typical physician day, healthcare problems, abortion etc but nothing hard. Overall, I really liked the school and people who interviewed me. " Report Response
