What are your general comments?

"My faculty interviewer, the dean of admissions, was abrasive and frequently asked the same questions. It was obvious the interview was phony and intentionally stressful. My student interview, an M2, played with her water bottle and was unknowledgable about UW. Also, the interview day was far too long. The med students were callow and very unimpressive. Our tour guide said he “sometimes” goes to class. Furthermore, there was a lack of diversity; it seemed like every student went to UW for undergrad and was a bio or biochem major. I’m a state resident and I was accepted; however, I’m not coming here." Report Response
