What are your general comments?

"I was extremely stressed not only bc it was a panel interview but also bc this was my very first interview. My other interviewees were very social, EVMS students were really nice (a lot of them who were passing in halls stopped to talk to us). Im sure after a few years, when this school is able to become more visible to applicants, its reputation will soar. " Report Response
