What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer asked very fair questions. Nothing was out of the blue, out of the ordinary. She responded to my answers, helped conversation to flow, and told me at the end that she thought the interview had gone well. It was nice that she told me what she was thinking, it showed that she was sensitive enough to know that that would be the question that would be burning in my mind when I left. It made it much easier to wait the three months it took for the decision to come. I was accepted. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student tour was the least impressive. I work at the school so I know what it has going for it. UVM is in the middle of a "Renaissance Project" so the construction makes things seem sort of in a disarray. i.e. the temporary library is not very appealing. I think that more focus could have been placed on the upcoming renovations. Also, seeing the anatomy lab would have been nice and also walking through the hospital where students do their clinical rotations might have made the school seem more appealing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"A lot of students from California end up going to UVM, especially those from UCLA. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview was generally very easy going. My interviewer asked good questions and smiled. I could tell that she was making an effort to make me feel more relaxed. This was important because I want to go to a medical school that takes the quality of the students experience into account. I understand that professors and clinicians can not always be so empathetic but at least there seems to be an effort at UVM to treat medical students with respect. " Report Response
