What are your general comments?

"We started the day at 8am. We had an introduction with Dean Wall (she's really nice and friendly. totally awesome b/c at some places i didn't get to meet the dean at very beginning.) Then there was a ppt presentation by Dr. Krauss (sp?). Later, Dr. Getto gave a talk about residencies, the hospital, and the programs at UW. He was a funny guy and I was very impressed by what UW has to offer. Then there was a quick 1/2 hour tour of the med school building (HSLC). There were a couple other speakers and then we had our 1 on 1 faculty interview. My interviewer was a great spokesperson for the school and convinced me that UW madison is one of the top places to go to med school. Afterwards, there was lunch and a talk about financial aid. Then we went to our group interview. There were 2 M2's and 4 interviewees. We just chatted and asked q's about the school, nothing scary about it. Then there was a tour of the hospital (I was soooo impressed). That's pretty much it. One of the best interview experiences I've had." Report Response
