What impressed you positively?

"the students, faculty, everyone. EVMS obviously makes up for areas where it lacks. there are going to be more research opportunities becuase there is more reserach funding but i was especially imprssed by the degree of cordiality among the students. everyone knew each other and even when they didn't, they were just having fun like they did. lots of interactions with faculty and staff including retreats, Fall balls( dancing stuff ), community projects. This is the only school where i know that students get dressed up and do stuff with faculty members. oh yeah, fellow interviewees were just the best, i guess it shows how well EVMS picks it students" Report Response
