A banner sign went up across Campbell Avenue yesterday morning welcoming applicants of Roanoke’s Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
The prospective students are here today for the school’s fifth round of interviews. I’m told 30 students are interviewing today using the same process that was put in place last year when VTC was selecting its inaugural class.
A final interview date is set for March 5, with all the offers for a spot in the school’s second class made by the end of March.
You can read more about the interview process, which is adapted from a Canadian medical school, in a story I wrote last year. School official likened the interview day to a speed-dating set-up.
