What impressed you positively?

"I really liked this school. 1. Perfect town for me: medium-sized, cute and safe, beautiful neighborhoods, right on the water, 45-minute drive to nice beaches, great apartments for affordable prices right by school and hospital, not too cold 2. Teaches with two focuses: preparing you for the boards and giving you practical experience for your rotations. They've had good results (esp. high board scores). 3. Global health and volunteerism. For example, Operation Smile was started by someone at EVMS. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Small hospitals" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Lots of people post feedback about tough, grilling interviews at EVMS. On my day, everyone seemed to have relaxed interviews. We only had two interviewers, both faculty, but I think the usual is two faculty members and one med student. My interviewers were very nice and knew my file very well. The interviewers appeared to have a page in front of them with characteristics and/or questions followed by the numbers 1-5. I believe that they had to ask specific questions and look for specific things, which they rated on a scale of 1 to 5. " Report Response
