What impressed you positively?

"The emphasis and amount of community service completed each year- very impressive. There seemed to be a great deal of camraderie amongst students, which I feel is important in a medical school class. And of course the focus on clinical skills is a wonderful aspect of the school. Gosh I wish they had asked me why I wanted to attend EVMS..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Well I thought I was prepared to deal with healthcare issues, but apparently I should have gotten an MBA before I interviewed.
