How did you prepare for the interview?

"I generally keep up with public health issues which aided in conversation ease and flow. we discussed everything from malpractice to physcian shortages in urban areas. I went to the bioethics sight for University of Washington. This sight is pretty up to date on bioethical issues. There is also the Kaiser Permanente sight for health care issues. I also made sure I knew my research. If you have ever done any research they will match you up with someone in that area of reasearch. Know the ends and outs of your project. Reading their paphlet was very helpful." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Words can not express my shock when I discovered, how happy the students were, the falcutly and staff go out of their way to help the students, and the level of support just might be unmatched. For example, if for some reason you can not take all of the classes of a quarter and perform well there is the option of decompressing your course load and only take half the classes. now, you will have to stay and extra year or two, but you only pay for four years. This is great if you want to do research or start on an academic medicine path." Report Response

"I could not believe that I bought into all the wrong rumrors about this school I almost didn't apply...talk about a big regret." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Other than the superb support nothing else." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school was wonderful, but keep in mind it is extremely challenging. The curriculum is quarter based so it is fast. I have come to discover that more is expected of the third and fourth year students than most medical schools. You actually have patients you are responsible for. They will call in the middle of the night for you to administer care. So if you are up to the challenge and plan to be in research involved in academic medicine this is the place to be. In addition although there were not a great deal of minority students the school is very supportive of those students traditionally under representated in medicine and is working hard to recruit more talented students who fit this profile.
