What impressed you positively?

"Just walking around, people noticed I was in a suit and they asked if I was interviewing, and asked how it went. They then told me how great the school was. Very nice staff/students!! They gave a 1/2 hour financial aid talk which was boring but VERY informative and gave very important info. My interviewer was very sweet and nice and asked many questions and I felt like I was better able to represent myself at this interview than at any others. Burlington is a very nice little town and a friend who goes to UVM says the town is a blast year round. If you don't like Burlington, you can leave for your 3rd/4th years and go to Maine, NY, and I think even Boston." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There wasn't much of a tour (which I didn't really care about, but someone else may), and while the main campus of UVM is very old and nice, the med school itself isn't that nice. However, they are doing a huge renovation which should be done in July 2005. If you can't stand/don't like cold, DON'T GO HERE! It was 30 degrees, ridiculously windy, and at times snowing. Oh and it's insanely expensive for out-of-staters." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you can, drive there. It's nice to be able to drive around the school/town after the interview, because you don't get much of a tour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was over 60 minutes, but we talked the whole time. No question was too difficult, and the interviewer would "introduce" questions so I had time to think of answers while he was still technically asking the question. He was a good listener and seemed to actually care about the answers I was giving to his questions. The three listed below were three out of about 20 questions I was asked." Report Response
