What are your general comments?

"The interview at EVMS was great. First was the Standardized Patient demonstration, which was so interesting. Then a volunteer lead us on a tour of the general hospital followed by a tour of the med school given by a student. After that, we ate lunch and listened to a financial aid presentation, followed by a presentation by the Dean of Admissions. Then, we were free to wait for our interviews, which took about an hour and a half. The interviews were panel intervews, with three people on the panel. Everything was very laid back and I actually enjoyed my interview a great deal." Report Response
