"I got blindsided- Instead of asking me a specific ethical question, he asked what types of ethical issues I'd heard of milling around in medicine right now. I listed a few, to which he replied, "now what would you do about each of those situations?" (In all fairness, he was cool about it, though. It may have been a panic test)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"It is a wonderful school, that is HONEST with you! They are extremely interested in you as a student, and treat you as their own. Their standardized patient program is one of the first and best in the nation, from what I've heard, and the school is so intermeshed with the community that it's hard to not have something to do if you need it. Wonderful children's hospital!" Report Response

"parking..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was a little stressful, since it is by a group, but they're very nice. I really think that the students genuinely believe in helping each other. There seems to be little to no competition between them, which is great. Fantastic school. Since it is new, it doesn't have the repuation of other schools, and can be looked down upon for that, which is completely a farce! They can't rely on a history, so they do everything they can to make sure that they create a wonderful environment for teaching and patient care. I've heard from doctors who say they can tell which residents are from EVMS (in a good way)- that says a lot. I see others complaining about Norfolk, but I've spent time there, it's actually a pretty cool place. On top of that, there are seven cities right there (Hampton Roads), giving innumerable experiencess locally (along with Virgnia Beach to relax). " Report Response
