What impressed you negatively?

"Who plans that tour? I found myself hoping that there's something more to the school than the cavernous concrete tomb that we tunneled through for 15 minutes. Also, they need to put some guy-related magazines in the A-300 waiting area. In Style?!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The state of their facilities. There may be world class facilities around there somewhere, but I didn't see them." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good interview, but mostly because I was prepared for everything they asked. If I hadn't been, it would have been rough. I don't think UW is arrogant, but I also don't think they know how hard other schools try to sell you on their school. UW didn't do much recruiting, they just presented the facts and seemed to think that they being who they are is enough. I was treated very well there, and will probably go there if I can."
