What are your general comments?

"It was great. I really loved the school. It is beautiful, typical new england style university with red brick. there still wasn't too much snow yet. I arrived late the night before my interview and without my luggage, so i was freaking out. took a cab to my host's house. she was really sweet and let me borrow clothes to sleep in and a towel. she took me downtown the next morning where i bought new clothes for my interview. i cabbed back to the university. the other interviewees were very friendly. we had an info session and all the staff were really fun and relaxed. not uptight at all. they explained the VIC curriculum which sounds really appealing. They integrate everything like embroylogy, histology, anatomy, biochem, and physiology when working on parts of the body. so there is redundancy but in the short-term so it gets engrained. Not redundancy in the long term, where you visit systems months later like in a blocking curricullum. I was very impressed. They also take their boards really early-Feb. Then we were led on a tour and then waited for our interviews. mine went smoothly, i had a radiologist interview me. He's from burlington and very sweet. No hard questions. " Report Response
