"Regarding the school itself, UW-Madison is unique in that it offers a "state-wide campus"--you can do your rotations at many different sites all over Wisconsin. Also, PDA's are issued to all 3rd-year students, and they become a part of your rotation experience. Students seem very friendly and happy, and they are relaxed enough to have fun, dressing up for Halloween on the day of my interview. They also have a community structure within the student body so that you can socialize with both upper- and lower-classmen in the medical school. Outside of school, Madison and the entire UW-Madison campus is absolutely breathtaking. My student host took me on a tour of the entire campus (undergraduate and other grad school campuses included), and it's good that we drove a car because the area we covered was enormous. The buildings are beautiful and full of historic character, and the maple trees in autumn there look amazing. The medical school itself is newly built, and both its interior and exterior have a very aesthetic design, and it is connected to all(?) the other buildings in the health sciences campus, including the main hospital. Wisconsin is very lively and full of character (and crazy football fans), and Lake Mendota seems like an excellent place to have fun and sightsee. Also, housing there is relatively cheap (like most locations in the Midwest). My student host really seemed to love her school, for good reason." More from this Member | Report Response

The ability to pursue clerkships in urban, suburban, inner city and rural settings is a very strong point for a medical student seeking a well rounded clinical experience.

All support staff and students were extremely kind and went out of their way to answer my questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"the new school that we will be in next year and the great things that everyone said about the faculty. "they are patient and willing to bend over backward to help you succeed"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone were very nice, and the students were truly happy to be there." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the admissions people were prepared to discuss the school's negatives as well as its positives. That the students seemed happy and even said that med school was more fun than college." More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed the interviewers made me feel." More from this Member | Report Response

"The new facilities that will be ready next year, the openness of the faculty and staff to incorporating changes, and the students! " More from this Member | Report Response

"All students appeared very happy and friendly (faculty, too); there will be an entirely new medical sciences facility next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude of the students and faculty and the emphasis placed on how the faculty is working to improve Madison?" More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitudes of the admissions staff, interviewers, and students. Very laid back environment!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is extra nice, they were very happy to be there, and the new facility which is going to be used by our class looks amazing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Attitude and friendliness of the students, staff and teachers." More from this Member | Report Response

"The new building. Both interviews were simply conversations. No real "questions"." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was VERY laid back, and we were able to see a 15-min video of the construction of the brand new facility that will be completed next summer, YAY!" More from this Member | Report Response

"how nice everyone was, and how happy they were to be there" More from this Member | Report Response

"How NICE everyone was (interviewers, presenters, tour guides, med students, even fellow interviewee's), everyone is really honest about their experiences and strengths and weaknesses of the program" More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice everyone was. Both interviewers were so nice. The dean was honest about the medical school. The interviewers wanted to get to know the real you, not to drill you on medical issues and things of the sort. The other interviwees were great also, and there was so much positive energy. There is so much to do at madison! I heard that the warm season is booming with cultural activities, and seems like the quality of life is rich there. There are 3 beaches (pretty good for a midwestern town). Also, as a medical student, you have access to al ot of recreational facilities such as yoga, iceskating, cycling, etc. There are numerous bike paths, especially along the lake. The capitol is near the campus, which is also beautiful. If you want somewhat of a city life, but in a small city, UW is the place to go!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was absurdly friendly and welcoming, from the students to my interviewers to admissions staff. That in itself made me want to go there. Plus, a new facility is being built that will be really cool. And there were barns with cows between the medical school and the hospital. How crazy is that???" More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendliness of everyone there, from faculty to facilities personal." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was VERY friendly and helpful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This isn't the first time I interviewed here. (wait-listed last year) I still love how outgoing and laid back people at UW are. It's totally not an up-tight, overly-competitive environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the dean listed the weaknesses of certain courses and aspects of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"People were generally very friendly and the campus is in a very lively part of town. Also, the presentation on the school by the dean of admissions was pretty honest, summarizing course strengths and weaknesses." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly everyone was. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Teaching staff are amazing (according to the students) and the new medical school that is being built." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Long day, lots of lecture about the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wisconsin is a really cold but that's nobody's fault." More from this Member | Report Response

"Certain classes are off campus (e.g. for anatomy you have to bus downtown to the old medical school)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are about 5 towers that release smog into the air." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the other students interviewing." More from this Member | Report Response

"End-of-the-day talk about why Wisconsin is a "Top-10" school. The dean made an awkward compilation of different rankings that put Wisconsin in the top-10, which was obviously contrived. We don't need an arbitrary ranking to know that UW is a good school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hard sell presentation at the end of the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, it was amazing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cold!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A bit cold." More from this Member | Report Response

"Every single person asks you if you have any questions. It's nice at first but gets old halfway through the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Madison is much smaller than the big city I live in and therefore does not offer the "big city" things that I am used to. Probably a good thing, actually... for both my finances and study habits." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm not sure if this is bad or good, but the interview is supposedly only worth another letter of recommendation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just that they review applicants in random order post-interview. That seemed like an odd way to do it, but that's what they told us on interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I guess I expected the other health care professional schools to have some integration with the med students, but the only real interaction is them all being in the HSLC." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that I had to leave my house at 5am to be there on time. Everything else was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, I guess if I had to choose it would be that I had pay $10 for parking? lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really really wish we could have seen the hospitals, but we couldn't because of H1N1. Driving in Madison is a little crazy with all the undergrad pedestrians." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very little about the school made a negative impression." More from this Member | Report Response

"n/a" More from this Member | Report Response

"Since interview was so laid back, not much chance to manage myself up. Also, interview does not factor that much into final decision." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like my 4th year med student tour-he was disinterested in giving it. Apparently the school also has bad cell phone reception-nothing really bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the students I was interviewing against. It did not leave a bad taste in my mouth, but I just felt some of them were underprepared compared to other students I had come across. " More from this Member | Report Response

"you dont have a whole lot of control over where you go for your 3rd year rotations" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students and their hierarchy-ness. The confusing hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hospital is a little like a maze, but very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of diversity in patient population and student population (almost everybody is from Wisc) The hospital is a MAZE" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, hospital was very poorly laid out" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school sells itself a lot. And I'm not sure I'm a fan of traveling all over the state for third and fourth year rotations " More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking is an issue, but what else is new??" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't know if it could be considered negative but all the students pretty much didn't say a negative word about the school and or program. Also the snow and freezing temperatures." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing except for the weather. it snowed the night i arrived, and coming from california, i wasn't used to the freezing cold =(. " More from this Member | Report Response

"everyone that talked to us tried to convince us that Wisconsin was the greatest medical school ever" More from this Member | Report Response

"Having to travel to complete your rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview is a small part of the application process" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not one student I talked to claimed to have anything they disliked about the school. It's great that they're happy, but I don't buy that there isn't ONE thing they don't like about their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"1)wisconsin is very, very far from california. 2)had a cabbie/aspiring film grad student with an anti-immigration slant, (that didn't make me feel very welcome- i'm korean). he also said, ''these immigrants bring down the education standards of america...so i like to support businesses that require high-skilled labor (i guess so immigrants won't come) and not the businesses that need lower skilled labor. i said, ''oh, that's kinda funny coming from a guy who drives a taxi.'' silence. take that. f*cker." More from this Member | Report Response

"Diversity needs work, but looks like they're trying harder." More from this Member | Report Response

"The main hospital is worse than the labyrinth in ''The Shining'' and one of the interviewees had to walk us through it cause the M3's and M4's were in lectures." More from this Member | Report Response

"A large portion of the day was PR (administrators coming and telling me why the school is amazing)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The affiliated hospital is poorly designed. However, there is a large amount of new construction occurring, which is exciting." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are all the same breed: white and from rural wisconsin. there is very little diversity at UW." More from this Member | Report Response

"the location, lack of diversity, how stressed out the student interviewers seemed" More from this Member | Report Response

"No one denies that the UW hospital is poorly designed and has a very confusing layout. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student who was supposed to give the hospital tour did not show up, so we had an on the fly tour by an M2, who wasn't that familiar with the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"The ''sales pitch'' about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The pre-interview ''social'' with medical students wound up being twelve applicants hanging out in a small conference with no more notice than a note taped to the table indicating that the medical students may not show up because classes were not in session. I had fun chatting with the other appicants, but come on Madison, how about a little courtesy?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't get a host, stayed at a dorm. " More from this Member | Report Response

"lack of diversity (everyone's from either Madison or rural, northern Wisconsin); school's unwarranted pompous attitude (it's a ''good'' school, but I wouldn't call it elite); obvious preference for conducting stress interviews (if someone tells you he doesn't do stress interviews... odds are, you're in the middle of one, or will be very shortly) *<rolls eyes>" More from this Member | Report Response

"didn't really like the group ''interview'' w/two med students" More from this Member | Report Response

"More than 80 percent of the students are from Wisconsin and many seem a little sheltered (never left Wisconsin)." More from this Member | Report Response

"THE WEATHER!!! Even though I'm from Minnesota, so I should be used to it...but the rain and the cold, not a good combination. Also, when we toured the hospital it was eerily quiet. Like there was no one there. But it was 11am on a Saturday..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really comes to mind." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have to go across campus to anatomy lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hostility of faculty and condescending attitude regarding applicants. Also, the school has next to no diversity with respect to its student body, faculty, or patients. Furthermore, there is little professional school housing and no on campus parking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Many of the people that give the presentations were at a conference, so there was a lot of improv and down-time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cramped hospital, how rural WI is, how much like Ann Arbor Madison appears to be . . . A very rude admissions office worker (who was very much the exception - everyone else was lovely). " More from this Member | Report Response

"students seemed discouraged that they could only do half of the disections. also, there isn't any parking at the medical school for students!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The schools gives grades. The winter." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital is poorly designed. Its like a maze." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of diversity, location (I grew up in Chicago, so I strongly prefer large cities)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Most students accepted are from UW-Madison undergrad programs (about 50%)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The curriculum and grading system looked like it needed a little work. Everything at the school looks good on the outside, but could be better on the inside. For instance, the "houses" thing they are doing isn't working (all of the students I talked to recognized this) and nobody can figure it out. The hospital is small. The emergency department doesn't get that many interesting patients (my tour guide told me this). Based on my interactions with some of the students, this felt like is a school where a lot of very smart people end up because they didn't get in anywhere else and they are bitter about it. I had cold interactions with some of the students including one who coldly and intentionally ignored me when I reached out to shake her hand to say thanks for having me at her party and a tour guide who responded with a "no" when I asked him a detailed question about his research experience (I know, WTF). Everyone else was very nice, but those two interactions were enough to influence my decision not to attend. In addition, the COLD weather and lack of diversity make it hard to consider this a place I want to be for the next four years. Plus GPP should be once a week, not once a month!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were completely canned. They were not listening to me, they were more interested in posing the next, rehearsed question. Not very friedly either. The facilities are old and run down. Parking is a nightmare. I definitely got the sense that there was no way in hell that I was getting in after the interview. If the staff truly does read this, here is a review for you (we're always getting evaluated, but you need to be as well!)- treat us with respect. You should adopt the attitude that your working for us (the interviewee); not vic-versa. You've establish one hell of a terrible reputation for interviews and my experience confirmed this. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No lasting negative impressions except the reality of out of state tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing much, I would say location, but if I was from WI this would not be the case." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is not a one-on-one student mentor or faculty advisor program; 3rd and 4th year preceptorships are required to take place outside of Madison." More from this Member | Report Response

"the UW Hospital is pretty jumbled together, even for those who should know it. Most hospitals I've been in are nicer. You also have to spend at least 16 weeks of your rotations outside of Madison. In general, Madison is a bit small for me, although State St. definitely has an active nightlife." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students giving the tours seemed a bit in a hurry while giving the tour or unsure of what to say about some of the facilities. But I'd understand, they are probably very busy too." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought they could have done without the student groupd "interview". It definetly didn't feel like an interview, and I felt like when I left the room that I hadn't said enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"the student panel interview (given in addition to one-on-one)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospital, although very highly ranked, is very confusing to walk around. Even the M4 students still didn't know their way around. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a whole lot. The M1 that gave a tour couldn't really tell us a whole lot about the school considering she had only started a few weeks ago. " More from this Member | Report Response

"gross lab is in old building" More from this Member | Report Response

"While the faculty seemed caring and involved there wasnt that spark I was hoping to see." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer didn't really seem focused on the interview. He didn't show any evidence that he had looked over my application, and he followed up on my answers to the questions he had posed by answering the questions again himself." More from this Member | Report Response

"With a class of ~207 I feel like you don't know your class as well. Everyone was sort of off in their own little corners studying by themselves." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students have to do rotations all over WI during their 3rd and 4th year. The presentation made it appear as if students had the option to go all over the state, but in reality there really is no choice. Parking is an issue on campus, but most people live close and walk. " More from this Member | Report Response

" Virtually no electives offered; Lack of forthrightness, e.g. no mention of being sent all over the state during your third year (admin made it sound like it was a choice). Also there was a shortage of third and fourth year students to talk to, but an abundance of first years (no offense, but how much can I learn about med school from a first year?)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Many of the students literally grew up in Madison and think it's the best place in the world even though they've never been any where else." More from this Member | Report Response

"The airport--connecting flights to Chicago are often canceled or delayed. The students felt that the curriculum was a little dated and should be more intergrated." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is only worth a letter of recommendation. Not much diversity. I say about 90% white, and majority in-state and from UW-madison." More from this Member | Report Response

"long day, aside from the 45 min interview its mostly sitting around or touring" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking might be an issue, but I'm willing to put up with that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tours really were a waste of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arogance of students/faculty. Administration doesn't care about students. Research faculty knows little about medical school operations so don't bother asking questions during the "Do you have any questions?" portion of your interview if you get a Ph.D. Anatomy is at old medical science building in a dungeon like lab. Campus near State St is really ugly. Major roads/train tracks run through campus. Housing is expensive, school has no parking, and the city doesn't provide adaquete public transportation to offset costs." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer, the student tour guides, the overall feeling that the day had been put toegther haphazardly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, but there isn't much diversity on campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Our tour of the medical school was really too short." More from this Member | Report Response

"students are unimpressive, unmotivated, and boring!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was late, so I ended up being the very last person done interviewing. Our student tour guide was a first year and it was her first tour, so the tour could have been a bit better." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much information on match available, nor about research." More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking and driving in Madison is a nightmare." More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy lab is taught half-half. That is, your four person group switches off with another in terms of cutting cadavers, etc. The group that didn't do the cutting is taught and shown the relevant anatomy by the other group. Could be good or bad- less cutting time, etc, but you get teaching experience and learn the stuff anyway." More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewers were dorks, and there wasn't coffee at 8 am." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of ethnic diversity in the class, faculty, and staff. The student tour guide was unimpressive, non-enthusiastic. " More from this Member | Report Response

"1. Parking. Always an issue at Madison, I knew this coming in. 2. Gross Anatomy will be held at the old medical science center until the new Health research complex is built." More from this Member | Report Response

"very little diversity. it seemed that 90% of the students are from UW and half the students went to the same high school in Madison (certain interviewees kept noticing med students they new in high school.) i got the distinct feeling that it's the Madison-area medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"We were never given a tour because of a miscommunication between the M2's and the admissions office about the timing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Well everyone (including current students) says that parking is such a huge issue, but I'm from a big city so I didn't think it was so bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"Next years students will have to travel to the old med school for gross lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dean Skocalak (sp?) - the woman is NOT a good representative of the school. I've heard her speak several times and she always rubs me wrong. She claimed that ten percent of people who fail the boards do so because they didn't do their work for the first two years but rather went golfing. She just generally failed to take responsibility for the school's shortcomings and didn't seem to care about the students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"my interviewers were awful! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Social aspects: No one lives on campus. No med student dining hall. Student population is not too diverse." More from this Member | Report Response

"The letter-grade system, the school starts in the middle of August, there's not much to do in the city, the students seem much more domestic/older than me, it's a small city" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is unable to provide adequate parking for students, at least not until 2008. This a major drawback for anyone in need of commuting, and an unfortunate issue for this very fine medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Alot. The interviewers were both late and the faculty interviewer seemed intent on asking irrelevant psychoanalytical questions. Madison is a extremely cold and dull city. No student parking will be provided at the new med school they are building so be prepared to take the bus!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that not too many out of state people are accepted to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Old current building. Many students lost the tour. The tour was uncessary because the medical school will no longer be in that building next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The (relatively) high cost of living in Madison" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were old and cramped. Fortunately, there will be a brand new facility next year. Also, the med school is becoming more and more segregated geographically from the rest of campus--it is moving out towards the hospital. That will limit interaction with undergraduates and other grad students. Finally, parking is a nightmare!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a lot of class time, but none of the students seemed to mind. They actually enjoyed it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers, one could barely speak English, and the other didn't know which hole in his head to pick next. I was surprised at some of the low people skills of some of the students admitted to the school. It shows that the admissions process is truly a random entity." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the day seemed impersonal. I did not like that the final two years occurred at various places around the state, some rural, etc. The day was way too long, and started way too early. We had a waste-of-time tour during which we were shown the old facilities -- we will use the new building next year. Also, I felt like I was wasting some of the interviewer's valuable time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of organization at the beginning of the mroning presentations." More from this Member | Report Response

"The electives that are offered seem a little scarce (but they are changing that)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traditional curriculum (lots of lecture hours)--but they are working to change this." More from this Member | Report Response

"The old facilities, but it doesn't matter because next year's class will be in a BRAND NEW medical school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just how old the school was, and how crappy the parking situation was...otherwise everything was impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers was trying really hard to get me go into research." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of adequate parking areas." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of waiting around (for next interview, for lunch, etc)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was pretty boring, especially because it was of the old facility which none of us will be using when we start." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is pretty old and the lecture halls are claustrophobic, but a new one's on the way...." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really had a postive experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"How cramped the school was (they are constantly building!!!), the lack of parking (but they have a good bus and shuttle system), the numerous one-way streets and the weather (it was quite cold). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Madison itself. Bear in mind that I come from a farm and cringe at city life. " More from this Member | Report Response

"parking and old building (but new one is on the way)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, but new school is coming!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Yup - med sciences building still ancient. BUT - new building open next winter." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour of the med school was poorly given (not a major complaint)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Medical school is separate from hospital, so getting to your clerkships seems like it might be a pain." More from this Member | Report Response

"The physical state of the medical science center -- it looked like the whole building could topple at any time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The current medical school is very, very, very old. The curriculum is traditional and not very intergraded in the first year." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't feel like you have to do the social gathering the night before or the round table, neither plays a part in the interview process, just a chance for you to as questions, It seemed like UW weighs the interview like another letter of rec, so that was really nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were about 40 people having the interview on the same date and a lot of the kids only applied to the top 10 schools, which made me feel a bit intimidated." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, I had researched the school pretty extensively. The day is really casual and fun!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed the day was." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing... I was pretty well prepared. I'm ok for hours in heels, but there is a lot of walking so others regretted wearing them." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviewers don't ask health care or ethics questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"-Bring your own coffee mug so coffee doesn't spill all over your overcoat hahaha. -Add 2-3 hours on to your estimated time of arrival to account for weather and traffic. -Prepare more questions than you believe satisfactory, since everyone you meet will ask you if you have any questions. At the same time, a lot of the people you will meet will not have a say in the selection process." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the mapquest directions were not correct." More from this Member | Report Response

"How informal the interviews were. They really just try to see your personality and see if you can connect with them. The student panel was rough because if you have a gunner with you (as I did) they shadow over the other applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview counts about as much as a LOR. Not a huge deal, I guess--could be good or bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"To get cheesecurds at the state capitol. Apparently that's the #1 place to get them." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really didn't discover anything I hadn't already known." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing- It was a great experience. There was no need for jitters." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the interview was not as important in this school as I thought" More from this Member | Report Response

"Madison is really committed to blending your MD education with public health studies (thus both being part of one school), and is hoping within a few years ~25% of the med students will also pursue an MPH." More from this Member | Report Response

"They are doing a lot of new construction. By 2008, the facilities will have completely turned over (into all new buildings built after 2003 [except the hospital, which is still state of the art])" More from this Member | Report Response

"that my student host would not have an extra towel, i'm hoping i have a rich roomie because so far my student hosts (at another host as i type) live in spartan conditions-most noticeably the absence of furniture-he gave me his bed (and only pillow) and slept on the floor-he was pretty awesome like that."

"The location of the office we were supposed to meet. The amount of down time. The files are open in that they know your extra curriculars and essays, but that's it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The purposes of the interview are (1) to sell the school to you, (2) to learn what motivates you to do medicine, and (3) to give you a chance to add things to your application -- updates, new ideas, whatever. Your interviewer will submit a letter to the committee with whatever you say you want them to know. Also, there is a real emphasis on selecting students who are comfortable in the setting and modest.

It has a rich cultural package, where you can visit museums, orchestras, and broadway shows. They give you a lot of opportunities to grow at that school. You have a choice of what to pursue and I was told by current medical students that their clinical rotations are hand-on right away." More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is amazing! The faculty interviews are typically only 30 minutes but mine started early and ran late. Questions were kept to a minimum and we mainly talked. It appeared as if certain applicants missed the memo of it being relaxed in tone. All of my interviewers were great. The M2s that interviewed the applicants just had an exam and still had prepared unique and fun questions. Both the most interesting and most difficult questions were during the medical student group discussion." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview could not have been more perfect. Madison really wants to impress its interviewees, whether its the fact that you meet with a M1, M2 and a M4, or that they handpick exciting interviewers; they impressed me. Furthermore, my interviewer and our speakers explained to us how the entire process works after interview. Two cool things are that your interviewer writes feedback on you for the committee and plays no other part in the process, and that the Dean of Admissions is not a part of the Admission Committee, so she is there solely to be of service to you.

"Very laid back , interviewer just went thorugh my primary with me and asked me some simple questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed with a rather elderly female on the science faculty. Basically the first thing she said was that she didn't even need to ask me why I wanted to be a doctor because she felt that my essays had done a wonderful job of explaining my journey to this point (I'm a non-trad) and she knew exactly where I was at. Things just went up from there. She really didn't ask any questions, we just had a very free-flowing conversation about health care policy and financing (from an ultra-liberal perspective). She repeatedly stated that she thought I was a great candidate and that she would definitely recommend that I be admitted and that she hoped I would choose this school because she thought I would be a great fit. It was basically a dream interview, except that in my wildest dreams I never imagined that it could possibly go this well! I will be stunned if I don't get an acceptance after this experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. All the interviewees got along well. The medical students treated us like we were part of the school. My interviewer barely asked any questions. We just talked about my personal/childhood life, what I did in college, and my current job. It was basically a conversation, and didn't feel like an interview. The facilities were awesome, especially the children's hospital. It was honestly the best interview experience I've ever had. Everyone at the school really wanted us to feel comfortable. The food was also great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great facilities. My interview was relaxed, almost too relaxed. Besides asking me the necessary questions he kind of didn't know what to ask me or what to talk about. Pretty much the whole interview was dictated by me and I just made sure to talk about the important parts of my application. Wish I actually had more questions asked."

"Day started around 8am at the medical school, which is right next to the university hospital and children's hospital. Good description of course work and student life. Toured the medical school with current student who was very helpful in answering questions. My interview was extremely relaxed. I basically had a conversation with a MD and talked about my life and how I ''discovered'' medicine. The group interview was ok, though it seemed unnecessary. It was 4 other applicants and two current students. They answered questions and gave a good description of student life." More from this Member | Report Response

"very chill, laid back, conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started at 8 AM and finished around 2:30 PM. It is extremely laid back. You have a few different presentations (about the curriculum, school, hospitals, financial aid, diversity, etc) throughout the day. Two tours: the med school and the hospitals. Two interviews: one-on-one with a faculty member and a group interview with 2 med students and ~4 applicants. The student interview is 45 min long and is also really informal. Come with questions though, as the med students ask very few and mainly want to tell you about their own experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Average interview day length (~6 hrs). Presentations early in the day overview the curriculum, facilities, and the merits of the school. Tour of school and hospital(s) by med students. One on one interview with faculty: 1/2 hour, they have your amcas and secondary minus your grades and MCAT. Group interview with students ~4 pre-meds to 2 M2s. Both want you to ask questions. Bring a lot of questions, since most of your basic ones will be answered by the presentations and tours. Campus, facilities are beautiful: that's a heck of a bonus!"

"it was a very long day, get lots of sleep the night before. i was the only californian and the only asian in a group of 20. other applicants were nice people. student interview was with two interviewers and 4 students, the only purpose is to see if you're normal. one interviewer said that everyone always sits across the table when they can sit right next to them, thought it would have been interesting.

"We started the day at 8am. We had an introduction with Dean Wall (she's really nice and friendly. totally awesome b/c at some places i didn't get to meet the dean at very beginning.) Then there was a ppt presentation by Dr. Krauss (sp?). Later, Dr. Getto gave a talk about residencies, the hospital, and the programs at UW. He was a funny guy and I was very impressed by what UW has to offer. Then there was a quick 1/2 hour tour of the med school building (HSLC). There were a couple other speakers and then we had our 1 on 1 faculty interview. My interviewer was a great spokesperson for the school and convinced me that UW madison is one of the top places to go to med school. Afterwards, there was lunch and a talk about financial aid. Then we went to our group interview. There were 2 M2's and 4 interviewees. We just chatted and asked q's about the school, nothing scary about it. Then there was a tour of the hospital (I was soooo impressed). That's pretty much it. One of the best interview experiences I've had." More from this Member | Report Response

"My visit to Madison was very laid back. My interview was simply a conversation with no truly formal, difficult, or akward questions. I very much enjoyed talking with my faculty interviewer, and the ''group interview'' is actually more of a casual Q&A session with some chilled out medical students. I came away pleasantly surprised by UW. Good people, nice facilities, and a young, active town. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It's not exactly an interview. and it's partial closed file, since they don't know your score and grades. The interviewer seemed impressed by my ECs and research.

"it wasn't necessarily bad... it's just that they made a big deal out of not conducting stress interviews at the beginning, then they give you one anyway... the admissions director or whoever said at the beginning of the day that sometimes ''personalities don't mesh'' or that the ''interviewer may be having a bad day'' which can lead to ''unpleasant experiences''... but it's completely ''unintentional'' and that if you feel you were ''treated unfairly'' then you can request another interview... riiight... if they're going to all the trouble of bringing this up at the beginning of the day, it's pretty obvious what you can expect later...

We discussed things that were not necessarily related to medicine, but eventually found its way back. Had lunch, the the group interviews were next. The group interviewers were awesome! It was so chill and laid back. So don't be worried! The purpose is for you to ask them any questions you had and get a perspective from students that attend there.

"It went very well. Many speeches, followed by a tour (by an M1) then the interview. Finally, we toured the hospital (M4). I spent the night at a M2's place (offered with interview). This was great because I got an inside scope, and I parked at his place (parking sucks otherwise), and he walked me down there the morning of, so I got there on time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was okay. The interviews don't account for much which made me think afterwards that going to Madison was a waste of time. They interview a lot of people on the same day (20) so my visit didn't feel personalized at all. It was easy to get lost in the crowd, and my attempts to ask students about their perspectives were unsuccessful. Throughout the day they make it a point to ask if you have any questions but I prefer to see what goes on away from what the admissions people want you to see. It definitely felt like the student body was very cliquish and there really wasn't an overwelming group identity at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got to Madison a few days early so i could get a feel of the town. I was picked up from the airport by my student host, who coincidentally also happened to be from the San Francisco Bay Area. It was damn cold, but at least there was snow. It was amazing seeing snow for the first time in seven years. I was glad i got the new wool coat. The next day i went to class with my host, and met a bunch of students, one of which just happened to be my MCAT verbal instructor from Princeton Review. I checked out the facilities (brand new, and the whole med school is wireless) found out where the interview would be the next day, and walked around the city. The day of the interview I arrived ten minutes early, 7:50, and was practically the last one in my seat. There were at least 30 people in the room, which was not very encouraging. The competitive pre-med spirit came right back at me. Hate that! But i guess it comes with the territory, or we wouldn’t be here. A few minutes later the admission and financial aid people came in and stared the long introductory presentation. That was great since it gave us all time to relax. I know when i got in there my hands were shaking. After the presentation we were split into two groups, the one that was headed for the faculty interviews and the other for the tour of the med school and the hospital. I went straight to my interviewer. I was supposed to be led to her office, which was pretty close by, but i missed the escort and started running back and forth from the first to second floor trying to figure out where it was. I got there at exactly 10:15, the scheduled time. She opened her door, welcomed me in and told me to take a seat. I was pretty hot, and a bit sweaty from the confusion. I think she noticed and asked if i would like to take my jacket off. During one of my mock interviews (with a second year med student from Stanford) i was specifically told NOT to take my jacket off. So i did. Anyway, she was in academic affairs and began a long introduction, probably about 10 minutes. She told me about her work, family, schooling, hobbies. So, i asked her what kind of music she listens to. After a thorough answer she responded with the first and only question i would be asked "What kind of music do YOU listen to?" I don't know how...but from that i ended up talking about myself for the next 30 minutes. Everything from where i was born, to where i was working, and what kind of medicine i am interested in...to taking pictures of the ducks walking on the newly frozen lake Mendota, and the crazy kids that play hockey on thin ice. I was myself, she was herself...it was awesome! At the end I gave her a big hug. She was so warm and hospitable, with the kind of nurturing bosom one just wants to nestle into. Weird…but so true. I later sent her a thank you note. It was sincere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back and everyone was really friendly. There are two interviews, one with a faculty member that can be just about anyone, an MD, PhD, Master's, etc. Each interview is 45 min. each. The second interview is when about 4-5 applicants get into a room with 2 med students, an M2 and M4 most likely. The second interview felt more like a question answer format. There are lots of presentations talking about the school, financial aid, and tours, if you think you might get a little tired (the day is from 8am to 3pm with interviews around 11am and 12pm), you may want to bring a small snack to re-energize you."

"There is an introduction, then a few small presentations on the school and financial aid, then a tour, then interview. This is followed by lunch with students, a discussion with two students, and a tour of the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"I never considered UW as a high pick, even being an in-state resident, but my visit changed that perspective. Really seems like a great school with excellent students and faculty. It also seems (from what I've heard and seen) you are well prepared for residency." More from this Member | Report Response

"There are two interviews. One with a professor (PhD or MD) and the other with a group of 2 students. The first interview is the most important, the second is more relaxing. The whole day was very stress free and the campus is beautiful. Just plan your route ahead of time because there is construction on almost every street of Madison." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great facility with really friendly students. During the day we were routinely offered encouragement by many of the students at the school. There didn't seem to be the sort of cutthroat competitiveness that plague other schools. Even the fellow interviewers seemed cool; we chatted openly and joked about the application process. The whole day was really relaxing it itself, so don't stress over it at all. Technology is top notch, and their hospital is currently being renovated. All in all, a really great school.

"A terrific and beautiful school with a unique curriculum. My interview was itself not the best one I've ever had, but my student host and the medical students were very nice and produced an excellent feeling overall about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The moment I sat down, I was told by the interviewer, "You know this doesn't really count for much, right?" And I was told by other admissions staff that they're thinking of doing away with the one-on-one interview. Basically the interviewer fills out a sheet that goes into your file as a letter of recommendation (of which you already have minimum of 3). Most of the interviewers are in academic medicine, so they tend to push that. On the whole, most people (including myself) come away feeling the interview was pretty laid back. Interestingly, the interviewers get your AMCAS application, but not your secondary essay, letters of rec, or transcripts." More from this Member | Report Response

"I came during a diversity weekend, and was impressed about the time and effort the school had invested in us. We attended the reception on Thursday, and of course the interview on Friday. On friday night we went to a holiday reception, and were invited to a med. school party. On sat. we visited one of their free student-run clinics and participated in a community service project. Overall, I had a great time." More from this Member | Report Response

"I attended a diversity recruitment interview weekend and encountered a truly diverse group of students: out-of-staters, minorities, parents, non-trad etc. We spent the whole weekend with students who mirrored us exactly. Unfortunately, this group makes up a tiny fraction of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was very low key. The student interview is more a chance for you to find out about the school than anything else. This was my first interview, and I'm glad of that because it really was much easier than I'd expected it to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"I do not think the interviewer has any input on whether you are accepted or not, as long as you don't go bananas and start swearing or using racial slurs during the interview. the interview was very relaxed and revolved around specific attributes of my application file. the interviewer did not have any designated questions, he just inquired about things as i talked." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was totally non-stressful!!! It was more of them trying to sell the school to me. Since it was MD/PhD it mostly consisted of seeing graduate school faculty who mainly wanted to talk about their research which was fascinating to hear about!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was treated very well. Intro by the dean, presentations by financial aid, info on the selection process, interview, tour, lunch, discussion with 2nd and 4th year students, extensive tour (like an hour)." More from this Member | Report Response

"she asked me only to describe myself and if I had questions the rest of the time we talked about things unrelated to medicine, very casual" More from this Member | Report Response

"UW was not my first choice going into this interview, but now I'm very impressed and excited. I had no clue it was this nice. I'd jump on an acceptance from this school in no time at all. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone talks about how the interviews at Madison are a piece of cake. Well, my interviewer was relentless. We didn't shoot the shit or make any sort of small talk. It was all business. Not that I hadn't thought of answers to his questions, I just didn't think It was going to be that type of interview. People complain about the campus, the weather, or Wisconsin itself, but they couldn't be further from reality. The campus is very nice. It has plenty of green space and is situated on a beautiful lake. And yes, Wisconsin has what you would call 'seasons.' That means sometimes it is cold and sometimes its not, deal with it or go to school in Cali. I really liked it at UW." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a state school so if you're out of state and get an interview they like you. If you're in state, its a token interview. For in state students all they really care about is your grades/MCAT & volunteer activity. They expect your service hours to be in the hundreds. As I say in the negative impressions area, the research faculty have no clue about the way things run. Neither does Beth Menzer or Tena Krummel. If you really want to know things like their residency placement/student satisfaction/statewide medical school ask to speak with Lucy Wall. They base admissions on a point system giving and taking points for Academic Record (GPA/MCAT), Community Service (medical and special populations), LORS~personal qualities, and Diversity (take it as you will)."

"My interviewer was not a particularly pleasant person, and seemed to seek out ways to trip me up in my line of reasoning. Just as I'd get rolling on a topic and become excited about it, he would cut me off and send me off in another direction. When I'd begin to put together a cohesive picture of the thought process that I sought to illustrate, he'd deliberately interrupt me and make sure that I could not complete my comment. The tour was disorganized and essentially worthless. Guides did not know which rooms would be open, nor were they particularly knowledgeable, as MS1s, about the school. I don't know when these schools will begin to realize that MS1s do not give good tours when they are 2 months into their first year at the school. Several folks did not show up for our tours, and the day felt like it had been put together 15 minutes before we arrived. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a good experience. The person who interviewed me wasn't real great - she showed up late and kind of made me nervous - everyone else seemed to have much more laid back of interviews than I did. We did get a lot of valuable information and we were kept busy all day. The new facilities are great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a very plesent day, extremely laid back. Many of the people interviewing weren't wearing suits/ties. None of the students looked stressed out." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very conversational - mostly just a "getting to you know" kind of thing. The enthusiasm of the students was very encouraging. They really seemed to love the school and program. Overall it was a very positive look at the school and a great experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I initially didn't want to go to Madison, because I went here for my undergraduate. Now, Madison is one of my top-three picks. The new building is incredible--especially the lecture halls, which are INCREDIBLE, the faculty are excellent, and the students are really happy. Teamwork is really stressed, there's always activities to do, and as was told to me: "teachers often think of you as colleagues instead of students." I was REALLY impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a great day, my interview was laid back...but he had to keep to a list of questions, which made it a little stressful...although it didn't really bother me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's my first interview, and I came in knowing a lot about UW Med. Definitely a good school for primary care, but I don't like their method of teaching (lectures, grading scales, etc)" More from this Member | Report Response

"A truly laid back experience. The interviews were conversational, the interviewers truly wanted to get to know us on a personal level. Low stress. I could clearly tell that the great majority of students were truly happy with their choice to attend Wisconsin. This is my number one choice and I hope i can go there." More from this Member | Report Response

"very canned, as has been stated by others on this forum. the woman simply read the questions from her sheet and offered no responses in return, probably because she had no knowledge about the school! I asked several questions about the school and every single question met with "i'm not sure." even basic questions about schedules and student resources!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The questions weren't too pressing or unexpected. It seemed that they genuinely wanted to know more about me than was in my application. The student was honest with me; he gave me his opinions on both the good and the bad things about the school. I would up interview with a PA instead of a doctor. I had to meet with her in the middle of the hospital, far away from where all the other students interviewed. Her questions seemed mostly formulaic as she asked my question primarily off of a sheet of paper. Her primary concern seemed to be that I understood the responsibilities and problems that physicians face. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was extremely positive and relaxed. I honestly don't know how anyone could NOT love UW! Every single student I spoke to talked about the great atmoshpere at the school and the fact that everyone works together. I think that student satisfaction is the most important way to evaluate a school and the student here definitely seem happy!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Over all a good day. Plenty of info to keep my interest. It was nice to talk to the first year students to a flavor to student life at UW." More from this Member | Report Response

"I will definately go here if accepted - much better than the other schools that I have interviewed at." More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interviewer, the dean of admissions, was abrasive and frequently asked the same questions. It was obvious the interview was phony and intentionally stressful. My student interview, an M2, played with her water bottle and was unknowledgable about UW. Also, the interview day was far too long. The med students were callow and very unimpressive. Our tour guide said he “sometimes” goes to class. Furthermore, there was a lack of diversity; it seemed like every student went to UW for undergrad and was a bio or biochem major. I’m a state resident and I was accepted; however, I’m not coming here." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great day. It was long, but at the end I felt like I knew that I would like UW-Madison." More from this Member | Report Response

"Comfortable, very enjoyable. Conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the faculty left me with a good impression and Madison seems like a great place to live, maybe more so for someone with a family or husband. The med students were nice, but not as excited/gung ho about Madison as students at other schools have been." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day is well structured and coordinated. The morning presentation includes a detailed powerpoint review of the curriculum (very helpful). Faculty, students and staff all seem very professional, dedicated and willing to be of assistance to the candidate. The open file interviews are a plus, as the interviewer is able to address specific issues quickly. The interviews ran on time. I was well impressed by the quality of the faculty and students." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was extremely disappointed in this school and expected much more. The city is boring and cold, the students seem disinterested, and the overall experience was borderline depressing (I actually saw a rat running around during the tour!) The curriculum also leaves much to be desired as they ship many students off to isolated/desolate parts of northern Wisconsin during 3rd and 4th year rotations. The new building is not exclusive to the med students as it will house nursing and PA programs as well. No parking will be provided for students. Overall, it seems like a depressing place to spend 4 years. I wouldn't wish the place upon my worst enemy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. They were the first school that really showed a lot of respect. They said while they are evaluating us as applicants it was important for us to evaluate them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Inteveriew was very low-stress, HIGHLY conversational. I would characterize it as a "get-to-know-you" interview. There is nothign to stress about, just be honest and be yourself. Students are unbelievably friendly and eager to meet you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Another great interview weekend in the Midwest -- plenty of time to talk to students/faculty and explore Madison. There are four formal MD/PhD interviews, but they're all pretty lowkey. In fact, the dress for the interviews was casual! Then there are four to six informal interviews with faculty whose research interests you, so it's a pretty long day. For the most part, they were just interested in hearing about my research and future plans." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview went well. Both interviews were conversational, and they never asked me anything that I was not prepared for. They answered all of my questions about the program and made me feel comfortable throughout. On top of that, both interviewers were extremely kind people with interesting pursuits. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student interview in particular changed my mind about UW Madison. She really loved going there and told me how she didn't want to be there until after she interviewed at other places and saw how much better Madison was. Now she is extremely glad she didn't go anywhere else. The faculty interview was also very informative. He compared where he used to work and told me why he liked Madison better. Overall the day flew by, the tour was boring because it will be a new building next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience, except for the interviews, a lot of the other interviewers that day complained about their interviewers being nervous, and awkward - as was mine. That was no fun, and surely didn't contribute to success in admission to this school. It seems they need to more carefully choose their interviewers. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Easy interviews. Spent the for 3 hours in the morning in "lectures" (video tour of new med. school, dean's speech, fin. aid speech, etc). Then interview, then lunch, then short tour of anatomy labs, then second interview. Lots of waiting around. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews themselves were very laid back. One with a student, and one with faculty. They had a copy of my AMCAS, but the grades and MCAT scores were blacked out. It was really more of a conversation in both cases, beginning with the basic "Tell me about yourself..." If you're coming to Madison to interview, please don't get too stressed, I realize now that I shouldn't have." More from this Member | Report Response

"I attended the informal gathering on Thursday night, which wasn't that helpful except that I then knew where to go the next morning. Day started at 8 with intro to school, financial aid meeting. Half the group had their first interview while the other half toured the school. After that, had lunch, followed by your second interview. An optional tour of the hospital followed, which I would recommend doing! The interviews were open file, but they do not have your secondary app or letters of rec. Both interviews were very relaxed and were just a converstaion. It was very easy to lead the discussion to talk about things that you want to. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a GREAT experience, I was really impressed with the dynamic of the day and everyone I worked with. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I felt very comfortable throughout the entire day. Because our interview was on a monday (normally the do them on friday) we didn't get to have a presentation form the financial aid people, which interested me. The building is old, but they will have a new one open Jan 2004." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts by meeting your fellow interviewees and Dean Snow. He talks about the program for about an hour. Then there is a financial aid talk for an hour. Next you have either an interview or tour... then you have the other. Next is a boxed lunch with current students who were very helpful. Then everyone has 1 more interview. Last there is an optional tour of the hospital... I found it helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The people that interview you (faculty & students) are vrey nice and do their best to put you at ease. They are also very honest about the educational quality and curriculum. They will tell you straight off which classes are not the best and why, but they also talk about what they're doing to improve that. If you interview there, write down the questions that you have in advance and any that you think of during the meeting before the interviews. The people interviewing you really want to help you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview, so some of it is a haze and I was probably a little more nervous as a result. The interviewers were very interesting and friendly people. They REALLY talked up the new medical school building, which will be next to the hospital and be completed in Dec. 2003. All in all, it was a good first experience."
