What impressed you positively?

"1) the day is very organized (though it starts early!) 2) my interviewer, for knowing so much about me and for, immediately when i walked into his office, pointing out the impressive things in Forest Park, which made me feel like he was really promoting the school and its location to me 3) the fact that i felt the school very much took interview day as a time to sell itself to the applicants, not just a time where the applicants needed to prove themselves to the school 4) facilities & the responsiveness of the administration to the students 5) The provide overnight housing for you, even if you're not Md/PhD. Thanks!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"very little. st. louis may not be the place for me though, and that is the only reason against washU for me. otherwise, it is obvious why this school is so highly ranked." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there are a number of full scholarships available. I also discovered, after receiving my interview invite, but prior to going for the interview, that WashU is very numbers based in how they make their cut offs and that intimidated me. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviewing at WashU is a wonderful experience! Their considerate nature is epitomized by the fact they put you up for a night, and in the course of your stay cover you for 3 meals (one of which is a really nice buffet!). I was very impressed that the school used the interview day very much as a platform to sell itself, and also that my interviewer really took the time to study my file and get to know me. It is a great school and very obvious why it is so highly ranked. I'm not sure if St. Louis is the place for me though, but other than that... the school is fantastic." Report Response
