What are your general comments?

"Hello everyone! I hope the information provided will be of good use to future applicants and good luck on the interviews! My interview here was the last day for the UVM season and there were 12 of us today. The schedule is as follows: @11am, Dean of Admissions presentation, Lunch with medical students, tour of the Given Building, Financial Aid Info, @2pm or 3pm, Interviews. My interviewer had already reviewed my file and application thoroughly, and asked a lot of questions about my activities and some parts of the essay. My interviewer was extremely friendly and smiled a lot, which made me feel more comfortable and relaxed during the interview. It was a great interview and many other students felt that their interviewers were great as well. In general, it was more conversational than the typical interview and I had a great time at UVM. Burlington is a quiet yet fun city with 40,000 people, so you must love the small city environment to be happy here. They generally wait-list many out-of-state applicants before making final decisions on acceptances. Good luck and God Bless everyone!" Report Response
