It may not be the best but it is definitely excellent and on the right path to producing very competent physicians. One of the things that will impress you is that all the students will finish med. school with very unique experiences. There are vast opportunities to do whatever you want!

"I was a little worried that there would be a lack of ethnic diversity in the faculty and student bodies at Vanderbilt, but what I saw and heard at Vanderbilt during my interview day was very encouraging. For one, my interviewer was herself a woman of color. Also, during our group talk with several medical students, one girl who was Asian-Indian said she has had no worries so far despite the fact that most of the student body is Caucasian. The students and my interviewer were also quick to emphasize how supportive the faculty is of the students there and how the school values cooperation and camaderie among the faculty and among the students. Also, the Children's Hospital on campus, which was built only a year or two ago, is gorgeous." More from this Member | Report Response

In addition, when I slipped into a classroom to observe the student sitting next to me randomly introduced herself and gave me her email in case I had any questions.

The new Children's Hospital is pretty amazing, and if I were gung ho pediatrics I'd stronly consider Vandy...but I still don't know what I want to do. Vandy ranks in the top 3 every year in student satisfaction, which I think is partly due to the selection of a specific type of applicant (not much diversity), but it's still a pretty impressive stat.

" More from this Member | Report Response

"The collegiality of the students, administration, etc. Even my interviewer was incredibly nice. Also the Emphasis program is impressive. I think most schools of Vanderbilt's caliber have ample research opportunities, but with this program the funding is guaranteed, and the structure should lead to productivity with a tangible outcome (e.g. a publication). Lastly, the vast majority of students in both the first and second year classes attended the lectures we had a chance to peek in on. When asked why, they said because the teaching was so good."

"The facilities, their new Emphasis program, the friendliness of students and administration. Also, my interviewer directed the session such that we were having a conversation as opposed to a series of disjointed question-answer sets. I felt like he didn't come into the day with an agenda set of exactly what he wanted to know. Instead, he came prepared to listen and get a sense for who I am via a conversation focused on various life/global/medicine related issues." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are incredibly friendly and social...not your typical med school students. They seem very close-knit and supportive of one another. The school provides a lot of support (in terms of professors donating extra time/tutors) for any students who are having academic difficulties, and before my visit I didn't realize how well Vandy students did on the Boards. The medical school and hospitals/medical facitlities and undergraduate institution are all located is close proximity." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus and facilities were very nice. The faculty, staff and students were extremely friendly. Everyone seemed content. Being from the south, I find Nashville to be a pleasant city to live in. I was surprised and delighted to see as many minority interviewees there (around 50%, 25% URM). But only a dozen or so students were in my group, so take those stats however you'd like. Finding out about the first year P/F and second year H/P/F grading system. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall positive attitude of the students and the faculty. I really like the campus too. The cafeteria is not all that bad either. Their facilities are all modern.

"My first interviewer seemed to be unfamiliar with my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"My long interview, which was supposed to be conversational, was very difficult. My interviewer was initially rude, but I feel I began to earn his respect by the end. He asked multiple difficult questions about healthcare, abuse in retirement homes, and other questions that I would not consider "conversational" at all. I spoke to other students who interviewed with me and it seems mine was an isolated incidence. Most other interviewers are more relaxed, especially for the long interview. Hopefully you don't get the same person I did, it was a very unpleasant 70 minutes!" More from this Member | Report Response
