What are your general comments?

"If you want to specialize, UW is NOT for you...you won't find much support for specialized residencies; they want to keep their #1 position as the best primary care school. Also, read the interview that was posted a few back. It was the negative from last January...this is true, although a distastefully stated. I have numerous friends from the WAMMI who interviewed last year and had horendous expereinces with Dr. Nottebom. Don't sweat it if you get him. Just know that he has adopted a self rightous attitude and loves his power. Be humble yet honest. If he cuts you off don't get frusterated- STAND YOUR GROUND! Remember, this is not that great of a school anyway, just cheap. You'll do fine and have other, better options!" Report Response
