What impressed you positively?

"not much. burlington is a small town with nothing to do unless you are a winter person and go ski/snowboard all the time. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"too cold for too long, medical school is under much renovation until 2005, diversity of patients is nonexistant. everyone in vermont is 90% caucasian white catholics as i was told by medical students there. I went to a pizza uno on route 7 headed toward burlington (do not go there) and there were blatant racism in my face by everyone who worked there. also during the tour at uvm, for lunch in the cafeteria, the cashier ladies were very rude and almost insulting (ex- i tried to add a candybar to my meal and they wouldn't allow me to do so just because i handed my voucher in 2 seconds before). give me a break. the student in front of me already handed her ticket in and was adding to her tray! unbelievable. ignorance and racism is still rampant here in burlington, although i did meet numerous friendly and nice people on the uvm campus. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"it's a good school but the enviroment/atmosphere is highly unfavorable. i encountered severe and obvious racism in burlington just because i was not white. vermont also allows civil unions for gays, and i saw many openly gay people in burlington, which i didn't like quite frankly speaking." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"interview was casual, everyone on the admissions staff are very very friendly and nice. the medical students were very welcoming. however, burlington is a small city, and i encountered obvious racism on more than one occasion. patients in the fletcher allen center are almost always white caucasians so not much diversity there. there are also not enough variety of medical procedures and cases, since nothing really happens in burlington. i also found out that clinicals are done in upstate ny and maine, both places i rather not be.
