What are your general comments?

"I was picked up by my interviewer, who I had a lot in common with. He was an ER doc, I was in EMS for 10 years. Very conversational, very easy, very laid-back. More like a conversation with a colleague - very welcoming. The tour was a bit disorganized, but the guides were VERY candid in their answers, so overall the tour was very good. The meeting with the admissions staff was absolutely outstanding. She laid out the process in great detail so there was no question about what was going to happen when. I really love VCU, and hope I get an acceptance soon. " Report Response
