What are your general comments?

"Since I've already been accepted at another school, this interview was very "low key" for me. I didn't expect to like it, seeing as how it's urban-based. I was suprised by the program, to be honest. I loved the block scheduling, and the facilities seemed up to date and very nice. Their hospital is quite large, and being a level 1 trauma center and the 8th largest medical center in the US, they see LOTS of cool things. Richmond is very historic and pretty city, and it felt "smallish" even though it's quite busy and bustling. Parking is heinous, but that's what you get for being in the middle of downtown!! The interview was laid-back and relaxed, and felt more like conversation than anything else. It's a large class (184 students) so they send out a lot of invites. Even though I'm a small-town type of person, I'd go to school here in a heartbeat. Technologically advanced, progressive, and the students seem happy." Report Response
