What are your general comments?

"I could tell my interviewers were trying to be friendly. They drill you, which is just fine. Be prepared to be shown no respect though. I'm not part of the WAMI sending states, but LISTEN TO THIS ADVICE! If you recieve Dr. Notebom from Montana, request a different interviewer. EVERY person I know from WAMI who had him hated him. Just a heads up. Mine interviewers were not as bad, but they were definitely canned and insincere. This school is old and run down. If you want to specialize, consider other options. If not, it's an OK place to go to school and a great place to live." Report Response
