What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"More tour options" More from this Member | Report Response

"Rewrite the interview notification. It was little awkwardly written and not really positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"The supplemental application for admissions cycle 2013-2014 had multiple digital glitches. I'm hoping that these are worked out and corrected for subsequent cycles. That being said, WSU's IT support person (Brandon Burch) was wonderful and very helpful. He made sure that any and all issues that I experienced with the supplemental were handled and fixed well before the submission deadline. Very responsive and timely." More from this Member | Report Response

"I fell in love with the school due to how friendly the staff and students were! It was really great that normal students who not being paid and were not trained came up to me throughout the day to talk about the school and share their enthusiasm. The whole process felt very genuine and non-contrived. They did a wonderful job making applicants feeling welcomed and comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Notify students of lacking prerequisites prior to interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview dates could have been more structured. I wish there had been a Q and A or student panel (like other schools had). I was not welcomed when I arrived for the tour, and actually had to track down someone to begin my pre-interview essay. I felt like the admissions office did not take an interest in the students there for interviews, and actually decided not to go to the pizza mixer because of it. The only faculty that spoke with me were the ones conducting the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
