What impressed you positively?

"Next year (Fall 2010) UVA's going to roll out a brand new curriculum along with a huge, brand new building to centrally house the med school. The new building has 6,000 sq. ft. of simulation labs, another 6,000 sq. ft. of standardized patient areas, and tons of computers and technology. They both sound completely amazing. UVA also seems to care very much about having happy, well-rounded students. The interview shot UVA up to my top choice school except for maybe Pitt." Report Response
