What are your general comments?

"The entire day, including the interview, was welcoming and laid-back. I liked my interviewers, and they seemed very receptive to what I was saying. Many of their questions went off of my responses, or were based on my application. WVSOM is wonderful and the faculty and students (some of whom you get to meet when you go out to lunch with them)are very kind and open to any questions that you might have. Everyone is easy to talk to. I hope that others have the great experience that I had. " Report Response
