"THE ADMINISTRATION!!! They are totally unresponsive to student concerns. Student mistreatment is a HUGE problem at VCU. Anytime student mistreatment occurs here, the administration always sides with the faculty member who is being charged with mistreatment. Also, students are discriminated against here for everything from having ADD to outside activities." Report Response

"I am currently interviewing for residency. I have double 99 (averaged over 250 on steps I and II) so I got interviews at competitive programs. i cannot tell you how many interviewers have never heard of VCU. I have to explain at every interview that I do not go to UVA. I would not go here unless you have no other options. I only applied to three medical schools, and ended up going here to save money on in-state tuition. Apply broadly. Good luck." Report Response
