What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the admissions office at 8 am; I was the first applicant there. They give you juice, fruit, coffee, water, and crackers to eat while waiting for the day to begin. They then give you a sheet of paper with your interview time. Before and after the interview, you are free to walk around campus, sit in on classes, and talk with whomever. The interview was with three committee members - the Dean of Admissions, a clinician, and a professor. It was a very laid-back, easy going conversation with three knowledgable people and myself. Everyone at WVSOM is friendly, and they all convey that family demeanor! After the interview, we were given a short presentation on financial aid, third and fourth year rotations, and the PBL track. Then it was off to lunch at the General Lewis Inn with current medical students and a walking tour with Angie! Then we were done. If you are called for an afternoon interview, your day begins with the presentations and continues on in the same order, with your interviews ending the day! Good luck!" Report Response
