What impressed you positively?

"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!" Report Response
