What impressed you positively?

"The VIC is an excellent program. It allows for early clinical experience, proper and thorough intergration of the basic science and clinical sciences, ethical/medical leadership/teamwork group discussions, the re-learning method to reinforce material over the course of the four years spent in medical school and much more. Additionally, a lot of construction went into the new areas and availability of course materials. The standardized patient facility is excellent as well. Lastly and most importantly, the students, faculty and admission staff that I met with were sincere, outgoing, enthusiastic and very helpful." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Before going up to my interview, I had really did not know what to expect about Vermont and the northeast. The scenery is beautiful, there appears to be a lot going on at the lake and the downtown area is small and fun (like my undergrad college town). It may not be as warm as I am used to and I might not hear the expression "yall" for a while, but it would be an exciting experience." Report Response
