"The entire experience was very positive and has really bumped VCU up on my list of schools. I would feel good about taking an acceptance into their school right now. The interviewer was very nice and did not make me feel at all uncomfortable. The students that I interviewed with were very down to earth and friendly. The tour guides and the entire admissions office was amazing and did a great job of making a relaxed atmosphere. The interviewer did ask a lot of questions and really seemed to try to get to know everything about me - from personal issues, to medical issues. At any other school, it may have seemed like a stressful interview, but my interviewer made it real easy for me to answer each question openly and honestly." Report Response
