What are your general comments?

"they day is pretty standard - i'd say that the breakfast in the morning isn't very necessary, you'll get opportunities to talk to students at lunch anyway. i didn't go to the pizza party, but i had friends in STL so i didn't feel like socializing with other applicants was that important. overall, it's not a bad place, it's a pretty relaxing interview day and the education, allegedly, is top-notch. i've seen more impressive hospital facilities but Barnes-Jewish and its associated hospitals is definitely pretty huge. how this actually translates into your med school experience, i can't say, but it probably won't suffer for a lack of opportunities, if you look for them. maybe i'm just tired of interviewing, since this is my fifth, but i didn't get that great of a vibe from washU, although i'd be more than happy to get accepted."
