What are your general comments?

"EVMS is a small school in a semi-urban area (and close to the beach!). The interview day was really laid back. I was nervous when I first got there, but after the full day of touring around and talking to students, I wasn't nervous at all by the time my interview rolled around. The children's hospital is amazing, the standardized patient program is impressive, and the students seem to love it there. Parking on campus is free for students, which is great. But they seem to have very little social life. They have tests every Monday, which essentially rules out any fun on the weekend. And they're in class from 9-5 every day. But it's a great school and would be perfect for someone looking to practice primary care. " Report Response
