What impressed you positively?

"UVA is a very nice med. school. The hospital and facilities are really nice and really busy. I really liked the atmosphere of the med. school and hospital. Students are super friendly, judging by the few students I met. The campus is really beautiful. Charlottesville is really cute and people seem friendly. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"UVA is not a diverse school at all. If that is something you are looking for, this may not be for you. Charlottesville is nice, but there is no big city nearby. I kind of felt like I was out in the middle of nowhere. Seems like a very undergrad-friendly atmosphere, not sure how it feels to be in med. school there. My interviewer (one of them) was pretty harsh...I am not sure why." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my experience at UVA. The day was organized well. The tour by the student was great and the lunch was GREAT! I have had 8 interviews and the lunch here was byfar the best one I have had. I had two interviews. I do not know if this was planned, but one was very friendly and the other was very harsh. This interviewer criticized my job, my training, and my future plans. If this happens to you, just try to remain composed. Maybe I was just unlucky! " Report Response
