To start off, $54K is not the price of tuition. At the interview, they give out a sheet that tallies up the cost of living and books and come up with $54,000 as the out-of-pocket expenses for out-of-state residents.Originally posted by ErinG
(I tried to pm you, but for some reason it's acting weird)...
Anyway, I'm wondering some general questions, and please don't feel compelled to answer if they are too personal:
-do you know how they feel about alternative/older students? (b/c I'm one of "those")
-how well do their students match?
-what are your sats?
-are you going??
It is my top choice because: I like their emphasis on community involvment, it's more clinicall training vs. a strict, research-based education (like some of the "higher ranked" schools), and it's so incredibly beautiful! (not that this is a reason to pick a med school, but I love Vermont-- the scenery, the people, the "feel" of the place, etc. I was married there too!)
Anyway, thanks for any info regarding these questions, and more info that the school's brochure might not necessarily include...
About 30 of our 96 students are either from VT or ME.Originally posted by ErinG
Yeah, I'm wondering about the out-of-state question for UVM as well-- are there any current UVM students out there who have input on this question? (we're wondering if UVM med accepts many out-of-staters, and what are the stats differential between VT residents vs. everyone else??)
