What was the most interesting question?

"Tell me about your high school visits (I went back to my HS last year and I'm going back this year again to talk to kids about college. We actually spent a good deal of time on this.)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Who is someone you don't want to be like? I couldn't think of an answer, so she changed it to name a situation where it was difficult to work with somebody." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Glanced briefly over SDN. This is an interview you don't really need much prep for. It's very laid back." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The admissions office, students, $12500 UVM GRANT for students who qualify financially, how new everything is and how much more money they are planning to put into upgrades, the school is attached to the hospital, VIC, COMET, the doctor teaching the Generations class on herpes, elective rotations at any hospital in the country, massive amounts of electives, etc." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing about the school (this is a trend for me LOL). But be aware that cancellations and massive delays are quite frequent for Burlington International. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they give a $12500 grant to any student who qualifies. For an OOS student, this cuts the costs down to about $58000. Still a lot of money, but far more reasonable and very comparable to my IS schools. It's based on your FAFSA and has nothing to do with merit (they also have merit scholarships). I will definitely qualify for this, so it's something I'll keep in mind." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Once you visit it's easy to see why they rank so high for primary care. The VIC is amazing and logical. I don't see why every school doesn't have their curriculum set up this way. You take step 1 anytime in February of your 2nd year. This way you get to start rotations extremely early. My interviewer was great. She clearly took the time to read my application in great detail because we talked about almost every activity I had listed. " Report Response
