What impressed you positively?

"The School's facilities. I've interviewed at alot of MD schools and none of these schools have as nice of a facility than WVSOM. The anatomy lab is state of the art and everyone has ethernet hook-ups in the many classrooms. This place is teeming with technology even though it's out in the middle of nowhere." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"At first, Lewisburg was kinda a downer because it was so small. However, after receiving my acceptance letter to WVSOM I went up there to find a place to live and it really isn't so bad. There's golf and horseback riding and skiing and everything you really need. Beckley is about 45 miles to the West and Snowshoe, WV is just a short drive up hwy 219. The people are super friendly towards the students and I urge you to try to find a better Hardees than the one that Lewisburg has. You can't, best fast food breakfast I've ever had. :P That's important when you know you'll be dragging arse every day to class!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It's 3000 bucks to reserve your spot. Of course I put it on my credit card but also be prepared...it is a buttload of money to go here. You're looking at a 245,000 loan if you are from out of state. But hey, you want to be a doctor, it's worth it. trust me, I have 3 degrees in computer science, philosophy and chemistry. The corporate world sucks, be a doctor and do what you like no matter what the cost! WVSOM seems like money well spent." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Positive. The staff are very friendly as are the students. You will eat breakfast at the General Lewis Inn, then go in for interviews at the school. Afterwards you get a tour of the school and then a financial aid session. Whole process took me from 8AM till 3PM. All I can say is don't be turned off by WVSOM because of the small town. It's better than it seems and the school is state of the art. The staff really cares about their students and they even have a Problem Based Learning Track. Once you are in you are family."
