What are your general comments?

"My interview was a nightmare. I want to say that I was almost accepted to this school, but I decided not to go when they put me on the "competitive list." Whatever. I'm sure I would have gotten in, but the interview made me so mad that I decided to take an acceptance offer at an osteopathic school (I recommend this to any pre-med who still has a heart beating in his or her chest). I told them I wasn't interested basically because just like the last applicant who gave a negative review, I think the UW sucks the soul out of decent people just to get them to step up to their standards (Hello, is anyone at US News and World Report looking at the sick system of degradation that this school is using to choose its students?) By the way, I'd like to shout out to my sister up there who cried during her interview: "Don't sweat it, girl. A better school will let you grace it's halls. Guaranteed." And to the suckers who write in the date of their interviews in a lame attempt to garnish favor with the admissions commitee ("Hi, Dr. Sampson!!!!!!!" Whatever, that applicant makes me sick): I hope all of the pandering and bending over is worth it, you sheep." Report Response
