What impressed you positively?

"VIC and COMET are fantastic; students get their own notebooks from IS pre-loaded with COMET. The facilities (library, study spaces, etc.) are amazing & the students seem to genuinely enjoy being there & one another. UVM really fosters a positive environment that relies on cooperation rather than competition. It's definitely a place that I could see myself being happy at for 4 years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That my interviewer wouldn't enter into a dialogue with me. I expected a conversational-style interview from a place like UVM but got much the opposite. I understand that the interview is their chance to get to know us, but it's also helpful to be able to view them as people and possibly future colleagues." Report Response
