What are your general comments?

"Waited around some. Interviewers were running behind. Ate lunch. Went on a tour (poor tour). Interview was typically. Three people (one person had an open-file, two people (one was a fourth-year) had everything but grades and MCAT scores). Then a meeting with Offices of Multicultural Affairs - the highlight of my visit. Seems like UW has a lot of great programs if you are interested in rural primary care (like, no duh?!)."
