What impressed you negatively?

"MANY THINGS. Charlottesville is more of a middle-of-nowhere small town than I was led to believe. Also, they give you a really rosy picture about the 3rd year rotations. I recently met a girl whose fiance is attending UVA med. He is almost always in such rural communities that there is no cell phone reception and they don't even have internet. If you are married or in a committed relationship this school is definitely not for you. (Unless you have kids, in which case they will keep you in Charlottesville for the full year). Also, my tour guides kept talking about how much everyone parties and flat-out told me that married people who attend don't fit in and are considered different than the rest of the student body. I do not want to attend a school where I'm an outsider just because I'm married. Also, they don't make it easy for you to sit in on classes or talk to anyone other than your tour guides, making it hard to discover how most students feel about the school." Report Response
