"This website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Great facilities, enthusiastic staff and students, the anatomy lab is phenomenal. The dean has brought in people from all over the country so it seems that everyone brought a lot of experience to the table when planning the medical school. Looks like it's about half MD/half DO which is nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"New school, won't get accredited until 1st class graduates. However, they have a provisional accredidation which is impressive for their first year in business." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are three 30 minute interviews but the good thing is they are over in the morning, so you can relax for lunch, your tour, etc. The driving tour of Blacksburg was nice and they pointed out the places to avoid when looking for apartments (Tech is a big party school and some of the apt complexes can get pretty loud even on weeknights)."
