What are your general comments?

"I came into the interview seeing MCV as the option for people from VA that didn't get into UVA. However, after the interview and visit I'm second guessing my choice of UVA. The students at MCV are WAY nicer than at UVA and they are more down to Earth. Students at MCV get to spend all four year there which is nice. The medical center is huge and gets every case type from A to Z. Also, the admissions people there are insanely helpful." Report Response
