How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, Ethics review (turned out to go unused for this interview), AMCAS and UW Secondary reviews." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Friendly, approachable, knowledgeable faculty. Students are laid back, very open about the school and willing to answer ANY questions you might have. My interviewer, a professor for M1s, M2s, and M4s, was highly regarded by the students. It was very cool to see that, at a larger school like UW, there are still avenues for developing personal relationships with faculty." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They are doing a lot of new construction. By 2008, the facilities will have completely turned over (into all new buildings built after 2003 [except the hospital, which is still state of the art])" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Average interview day length (~6 hrs). Presentations early in the day overview the curriculum, facilities, and the merits of the school. Tour of school and hospital(s) by med students. One on one interview with faculty: 1/2 hour, they have your amcas and secondary minus your grades and MCAT. Group interview with students ~4 pre-meds to 2 M2s. Both want you to ask questions. Bring a lot of questions, since most of your basic ones will be answered by the presentations and tours. Campus, facilities are beautiful: that's a heck of a bonus!" Report Response
