What do you like most about this school?

"I love the flexibility to set up rotations with chosen doctors who I feel would benefit my education most. Unlike other schools who insist on assigning you to a particular physician, WUHS gives you the freedom to choose doctors/hospitals/practices outside of their large network of attendings. If you navigate this correctly, it gives you the opportunity to do your rotations with some of the best physicians and departments in the country!" | Report Response

What do you like least about this school?

"I dislike dealing with the financial aspect, I understand why it is organized the way it is, but I would prefer if it was more organized and had a centralized payment portal for all students." | Report Response

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"WUHS is really fantastic with the freedom they provide, they are always helpful and accommodating, and even have a separate block dedicated to step one prep! The 1st pass rate is pretty impressive, and student services is always available and easy to get ahold of! All in all, Im very satisfied with my program so far!" | 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.
