What impressed you negatively?

"Students take Step I in Feb. of second year (vs. May at other schools), and start clerkships right after that. This means the preclinical years are more intense than usual, because they have to cover 2 years' worth of material in 1 1/2 years. Also, there's no summer break in year 3, so year 4 lasts 16 months." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't book a JetBlue flight out of Burlington, because they don't have that many flights there. If they cancel on you (like they did to me), you'll have to stay overnight or pay a fortune to get out on another airline." Report Response

"UVM seems like a wonderful place. The town seems nice, everyone is friendly, and the students look happy.

I had a very positive visit to UVM, and would love to go there if I get in." Report Response
