Short answer: Don't put too much thought into this. The VCU thing is a little weird. The only time this might get sketchy is if you've recently jumped ship from another health profession (especially post-rejection).
admissions boards want to accept those candidates they think will stay in school. proof of commitment is in a) work ethic (GPA) and b) passion (volunteer/experiences).
doesn't matter how early or late you were in hopping on board
