What are your general comments?

"I really didn't think I was going to like VCU, but now I'm so glad I applied. As an out-of-state student, I've never been to Richmond and didn't think I would like the city. The interview wasn't all that intimidating at all, and he really seemed to want to make me "sound good" to the admissions committee. The interviewers seem to want to be your supporter when your files brought to the committee, or at least that was the impression that I & the people that interviewed on the same day got. I didn't get asked any ethical questions or the "what are the problems with health care" questions. It was a really relaxed day. The only curveball type thing was that my interviewer asked over & over if I had any questions about the school, and I definitely didn't have 6 questions prepared. Overall, I'm glad that I was invited to interview here & I would definitely go here if accepted..." Report Response
