"How would you tell a 68 year-old woman that she has 6 months to live?" More from this Member | Report Response

"SDN" More from this Member | Report Response

"Read MMI books." More from this Member | Report Response

"Looked up practice interview questions, read blogs, and read the news about current healthcare related news (research and other issues)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Read interview prep books, studied the school and the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"Study about the school and review questions that might be asked. Also brushed up on national health related issues." More from this Member | Report Response

"SDN, mock interviews, practice" More from this Member | Report Response

"Brushed up on my knowledge of healthcare systems, read my application, and read the schools student handbook." More from this Member | Report Response

I recommend this." More from this Member | Report Response

"Secondary, med-ethics website, SDN" More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't! " More from this Member | Report Response

"reviewed SDN interview feedback" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Interviewers and staff very friendly and relaxed" More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy lab and curriculum is fantastic. You will know your anatomy well at this school. Students and staff seem freakishly happy. Very much a family atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"The two professors I interviewed with were great." More from this Member | Report Response

"How happy and welcoming everyone was! They made me feel at home and were all so nice I felt so happy thee entire day!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff, students, and presentation" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school facilities, the staff, the student/faculty ratio (3:1)" More from this Member | Report Response

"So many things. I love this school, everyone is friendly, helpful, and attempted to make everyone comfortable. Also, lunch was delish." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student centered focus. Since it is not part of an academic medical center there is a lot more emphasis on the students and as a result a much more close family feel to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are nice, especially the gross lab. The staff, students, and faculty all seem very committed. The schools seems to have a lot of community support." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were friendly and helpful in answering the questions I had for them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Student and faculty friendliness, new facilities, community support. They are very committed and want their students to excel because, as a new school, their success depends on the students. Already have many rotations in place." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students and staff appear genuinely excited and committed to success. The campus is brand new and built with growth in mind. I saw nothing that made me think, "I wish that they had done X instead" when it came to facilities. Students were very friendly. Based upon conversations with residents in Yakima, they community is very supportive of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Dedication of the staff to students and school. Teachers seem to have great credentials, and the whole atmosphere was definitely laid back. Staff was joking with one another during parts of the presentation and made it fun. Classrooms had great technology, and they have a mock clinic complete with exam rooms to practice clinical skills with volunteer patients. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I like the small class sizes. The facilities are really nice and given that they are a newer school, they are really receptive to student feedback and continuous improvement. I also loved LeAnn Hunter's comment during the orientation, "Once you are admitted, the competition is over. We want you to all pass and become doctors."" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the campus was great. It's small but has an at home feel. Yakima is a great area to go to school, with lots to do. It is not a huge city, though, which I prefer but some may not." More from this Member | Report Response

"School has very caring faculty. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has their stuff together! Being a new school, I was kind of intruiged how "together" they would have everything and what they could do for me as a student there. Seriously was impressed with the setup, as well as the attitude of the faculty and staff. The mood there is a very positive one, with the main goal being to provide the best possible environment for medical students to be successful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is super-nice. The faculty need the students to succeed and respond to their feedback as the program develops. Nice, new facilities. Over next 10 years, PNWU will build 9-10 buildings on a 42-acre campus including schools of various health sciences. Traditional 1st-year lecture format with full gross anatomy lab. Wide variety of clinical sites in the Northwest." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is out to prove themselves, and it seems like this correlates into fairly high standards." More from this Member | Report Response

"Leanne sat with the students in the lounge/hall as we waited for our interviews. Also, there were many students who talked with us and answered questions about the school. Be prepared to talk with both candidates and students in the morning." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most everything. They are a family; from the maintenance guys, the security guard, the students and faculty/admins are all on a first name basis and bend over backwards to help each other out. The school is also extremely committed to providing docs to the underserved areas and is making it a point to create quality rotation sites near or in these areas so the students can get exposure and connections. " More from this Member | Report Response

"they pick up students from the airport!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the admissions staff and students. Although the school is small, they are employing top notch technology with robust plans of expansion." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"CASPer" More from this Member | Report Response

"Small, Yakima, no gym, no cafeteria, no dedicated board study time, unclear research opportunities???" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the professors that interviewed me had a poor attitude and seemed aggressive. Turned me off from the school completely." More from this Member | Report Response

"Housing for students was sort of vague about what the best options were. My impression is you need a car, especially one that can handle snow." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too long, too stressful." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I didn't get in :o(" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nada" More from this Member | Report Response

"Yakima is a small town so if you grew up in a big city it might not be the best place to go to school. (I came from a small town so it didn't bother me) Also, South Yakima has a bit of a crime problem, but that is nowhere near the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Yakima is nearly OK, but the school is in the very sprawly section of the city. The non-refundable deposit ($1k!). The student health insurance sucks. Students have to pay out of pocket for dental care!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much; the interviewers are supposed to act "scripted" and not allow prompting or express emotion but mine did. Some people had interviewers that were very stoic, as they were supposed to be, so it depends on who you get." More from this Member | Report Response

"They are so new that they haven't been able to prove themselves. The location is not that great, but the community loves and supports the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I personally hated this interview style. It isn't very stressful per se but it is very awkward. I felt as if my answers were stilted even though in the (short) interactive portion at the end I was told I am was very articulate. I am usually a strong interviewer but this type of interview format neutralized any skill or advantage I would have had. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I think they will eventually succeed, but it will take a few years to fill out and become more attractive to med students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has issues with study space. I know they are trying to fix that, but it is a common concern among current students." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like the interview format. It was very structured and you had to figure out how to incorporate parts of your application into each question to stand out. I would have rather had a less structured format that let the interviewers and interviewee guide the conversation more." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very new. Lack of full accreditation. Still much work to establish the school. Also, since they rely on private donations, I foresee issues with the downturn of the economy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much.... its a new school, but they seemed to have it on lock" More from this Member | Report Response

"The surrounding area is ok, your typical medium-sized town. Whether that's your cup of tea is up to you. You have to take some classes in summer between 1st and 2nd year. They expect you to do web videoconferences from the remote clinical sites." More from this Member | Report Response

"They mentioned that they have a dress code for their students - no denim! Now, I understand the rationale for having a dress code (to be more professional), but c'mon! This is the Pacific Northwest! Jeans and a fleece is ALMOST business casual!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish that the staff/faculty would have addressed what I think are pertinent concerns regarding the issues any new school would face. I felt as though my questions might have a negative impact on my acceptance chances, as they were pretty direct. I felt that two of the three students who sat with us rather dodged these questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview style this year :P. they give everyone 21 standard questions, and are not allowed to clarify them. They are also not allowed to add supplemental questions that might clarify or shed more light on the interviewee's answers. It was very impersonal, which was the complete opposite of the atmosphere at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"bad location/weather. bad financial aid program. school wasn't even built yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's youth and small size." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You may answer traditional questions too like greatest strengths and weaknesses" More from this Member | Report Response

"That there is no panel style interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the weather would be horrible and too bad to drive so then I wouldn't have had to buy a last minute plane ticket." More from this Member | Report Response

"Day's schedule" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I wouldn't get in... Ha!" More from this Member | Report Response

"my actual interview time." More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back it was going to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, the scchool is pretty transparent in their interactions." More from this Member | Report Response

"They give you coffee/drinks when you get to campus in the morning." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was not much that needing excessive preparation, so nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you rent a car, go drive the mountain passes. Beautiful! Also, bring a book or something to read. There is a few hours wait while the interviews are going on. " More from this Member | Report Response

"that my GPS system didnt have the updated street name where the school was at.... definitly made me panic for a second the day of the interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

""University Parkway" is labelled "North 33rd St." on most maps." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just how difficult the standard interview format was for me. I prefer an interview format where the interviewers can ask follow-up questions, even if this means that you get put on the spot more." More from this Member | Report Response

"A student told me the interview was paramount to acceptance- probably the most important thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The time we were supposed to show up..I never received the packet in the mail so i showed up an hour and a half early." More from this Member | Report Response

"that my interviewer was a raging republican." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I had a good idea of what to expect from prior responses" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"To be clear, the format is four MMI stations which are individual, and two groups stations that are activity-based." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I liked it, but didn't love it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition here is insanely expensive compared to other DO schools (almost $52,000 vs the ~$40,000's average elsewhere), which would not be a problem if this school was exceptional, but it is not. I was told that professors here are OK (not awesome), and location is in terrible part of WA known for high crime and gang activity." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely fell in love with the school. This was my last choice school going in but became one of my top choices leaving. Everyone was so kind and welcoming I could tell people were genuinely happy there." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school may be new but it seems freaking awesome. I wish I could have been" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview read out the description of the how the interview would precede, then we jumped right to the questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"PNWU love." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a wonderful school and it should be at the top of the list for anyone interested in practicing in a rural area or practicing family medicine in the Northwest. The facilities are also top notch (it has the only cadaver lab I have ever seen that has windows!) and they are a testament to the fact that value quality over quantity as they continue to expand their campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Someday it will be a great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was just amused by how they have a script they have to read to you at the beginning of the interview to make it "standardized," I suppose. For the most part, though, it's a pretty normal interview with relatively nice people." More from this Member | Report Response

"Because of staffing limitations, there was a lot of down time for some students between the end of lunch and tours and the start of their interview. For example, I sat around for three hours waiting. You can't really do anything (like nap) while you wait so you just sit and wait and wait and... At least it was a good time to get to know some of the current students and fellow applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"Contrary to popular belief, they ARE eligible for students getting federal aid loan funds. Very promising school, with a lot of community support. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had two reviewers. One had viewed my file, while the other did not. They use a standard set of questions. There are only two "ethical" questions which have been listed by previous posters. The format was actually easier than some of the less structured interviews I have been on. Also, given the interview questions, it is clear that they are looking at you as a whole person and not just your academic record." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has promise. If they can achieve their goals, I'm sure it will be a very good place to learn rural medicine. They are very dedicated to the northwest, so don't go here thinking otherwise. " More from this Member | Report Response

"awesome place, really impressive!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts at 9.30am. You don't need to show up before then; nothing happens before 10am. If you show up early, you'll sit around in the entryway with nothing to do. Anyway, PNWU is a nice school, and will develop into a top DO school over the next few years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview went well (so I thought anyway!). I didn't like the format, but my interviewers were nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff and faculty (including my two interviewers) were great. I had an awesome interview experience. My recommendation with respect to the interview is to truly be candid, thoughtful, and make those impersonal questions personal. That'll be helpful in standing out. I think that personality is important to this school- more than I have felt at the other schools I had interviewed at." More from this Member | Report Response

"Would love to go here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm relieved that the process is over. Interviewed on Friday and received accpetance phone call the following Tuesday" More from this Member | Report Response
