What are your general comments?

"Got there real early. At 10 o clock we went into a room where Jim Kiraly told us bout how EVMS trains physicians to really care for their patients -- then a demonstration w/ a standardized patient (great job sarah). then we got to tour the children's hospital, and then a 2nd year student gave us a good feel of how student life is like. we stopped so much because so many of the students were kind enough to share their own experiences and help us with any interview/general questions. the interview was 2 on 1 and both my interviewers were AWESOME. i love this school right now."
