What are your general comments?

"EVMS is an awesome school. Yes they aren't a very rich school but they have a great education (high board percentages) and a very friendly atmosphere. The interviewers were laid back, and quickly tried to make me feel comfortable. They really did seem to want to get to know me better. The key thing is to be friendly and HONEST. Make it into a chat and it will make it easier for you to answer their questions." Report Response
