What impressed you positively?

"Having interviewed at other schools I can compare my experience. Enthusiatic and helpful staff and students at WVSOM. You get a feeling that they want you to be part of their family. The atmosphere reminded me of my private high school. A lady student was very informative about the PBS program during lunch. We had a good tour of the facilities. I got to see the head of a cadaver in the anatomy lab, and I did not freak out! The interview was conducted in a warm but professional manner, unlike some schools that treat you like a "worm" during an interview. Overall, the experience was good. " Report Response
