How did you prepare for the interview?

"MMI Prep" More from this Member | Report Response

"Read MMI practice questions and responses; studied ESFCOM's website; studied my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Ran through a few MMI scenarios, but you can’t really prep" More from this Member | Report Response

"Went over my application (no need for this in hindsight), practiced articulating my motivation for medicine, went over general practice questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"practice MMI questions" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Coordination and resources on campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Faculty and students were wonderful and kind. Facilities were nice. Spokane is a nice place." More from this Member | Report Response

"Camaraderie among students and faculty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice little campus, laid back vibe. All of the students seem very enthusiastic to be going there, and most seem very "chill". Awesome school if you are interested in rural medicine in Washington w/their community-based curriculum and clinical sites." More from this Member | Report Response

"warmth and relaxed demeanor of interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school very clearly cares about the success of their students and seems to do everything in their power to help their students succeed. They also have resources available to their students even after they have graduated." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Having to tour before interview while other group interviewed then toured" More from this Member | Report Response

"Separate from WSU main campus (which is in Pullman, WA) so there aren't many student amennities to have access to. No affordable parking near campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Majority of the campus tour seemed irrelevant and more just something to do for the group who wasn’t interviewing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Currently (Dec. 2018) seems like a bit of an experiment, and they are figuring things out along the way. A couple of the students gave off the "I'm so great/entitled millennial" vibe, which was kindof annoying." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am not a fan of having different regional sites for years 3 and 4 with questionable input into which one you will be placed at for 2 years." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not to stress as much" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the MMI was going to be really chill and easy." More from this Member | Report Response

"How chill the MMI was and how warm/friendly the interviewers were" More from this Member | Report Response

"That they truly do their best to make you feel at ease on the interview day and during the interview. There are no acting scenarios and no questions specifically designed to stress you out." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was nervous about the MMI format, but it was actually just fine. The scenarios were pretty simple and the interviewers were very nice and help you feel calm." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great in-state school" More from this Member | Report Response

"You get the opportunity to interact with a number of the students (you have lunch with them and go on a tour with them), see the anatomy lab, and see most of the campus (which is tiny). Seems a little risky for now since having only started a couple years ago (Dec. 2018 when I interviewed), but WSU in general has a reputable name and is a quality university. My advice would be to go here if you for sure to go into rural medicine in Washington, but otherwise I would pursue other opportunities." More from this Member | Report Response

"the 13 minute one on one went by fast" More from this Member | Report Response

"Clearly an excellent program. Although it is new, I would have no concerns about the quality of education I would receive from this school." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"They told us that they send out 2 batches of offers: the first at the end of October and the next in Feb/Apr. I wish that they would send out other batches in Nov/Dec/Jan. If you don't make the Oct batch, Feb is a lonnng time to have to wait." More from this Member | Report Response
