What impressed you positively?

"Really how nice my interviewer was! But there were a lot of things that were impressive - the students were smart and friendly, the facilities were simply amazing, the faculty were open and easy to talk to, and you were treated well from beginning to end. I think they really do go out of their way to make the whole experience stress free and enjoyable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The night before the interview they have a pizza party, which was definitely interesting as you got to meet some first year students. The only thing that didn't impress me was that some of the students were clearly there just for the pizza and just ate and talked in their own clique. But there were students who were willing to talk so overall this was still a good experience." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the financial aid is actually much better, even for people who don't get full-tuition assistance. The school is actually much cheaper to attend than it looks on paper. Also the lunch is with 3rd year students on some days and as one-on-one with a faculty member other days. I personally enjoyed talking to the faculty member, who was very nice and easy to talk to. I know some of the people who interviewed with me though felt a bit intimidated being 1-on-1. It's not part of the admissions process though so you should just relax." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my day at WashU. I thought the faculty and interviewer were very friendly, the students were nice, and the school itself amazing. I live in St Louis and I like the city, but it is a unique place - anyone not from the area should probably think about spending a couple of days getting to know the city as theres a lot more to it than just the medical school neighbourhood."
