What are your general comments?

"The interview day at EVMS was great. The day started with an introduction and a presentation on the school's SP program. the admissions staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. the standardized patient program is amazing; definitely a big reason to attend EVMS - as a student you get massive amounts of patient exposure and clinical experience. Next was a tour of the children's hospital, excellent facility. Then came lunch along with a financial aid briefing. Lastly, the interviews. I had interviewed here a couple of years ago, and I can definitely say that the experience this time was totally different, much more relaxed and friendly. Maybe because i had different interviewers? Regardless, the interview panel was very down-to-earth, quite jovial. The healthcare and ethical questions were to be expected; reading SDN and consulting with someone with clinical experience helped alot. " Report Response
