What are your general comments?

"I slept at my buddies place the night before, he is a current 1st yr at EVMS. I arrived at the school for the day, and mingled as always. We went in and discussed the schools curriculum, with a focus on the school's primary care medical interview session. Pretty impressive. Then, we went on a tour of the hospital, which was very lacking. Then, had a tour of the school by great students. This was followed by lunch and a presentation of the school and its programs by students. Then we were free until our interviews. My interview was good. There were 2 Dr.s and one student. It kind of seemed set up with the questions that they were asking me, and less of a conversation. However, they were all nice and seemed to be interested for the most part in what I had to say. One ethical question, the rest about what I am up to now, why EVMS, why medicine. Then, I flew home." Report Response
