How did you prepare for the interview?

"This was the most relaxing interview that I've had all season! Read some feedbacks and maybe review your application, but you shouldn't need more than that." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"All of the students that I met were very down to Earth and friendly. The medical complex is huge and in good condition. The faculty are very dedicated to their work and students. The financial aid packages sound pretty good. Olin Hall is a nice option to have, but it seems like housing should be very cheap around there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Second and third years are intense. I did not meet many students from those two years. I'm glad that arrangements were made for us to stay in Olin Hall, but that place has super thin walls, so good luck if you have loud neighbors! The pizza party was a little awkward because a lot of Med Buddies didn't show up and the students were more content talking to each other. It defeats the whole purpose of the event. St. Louis is not for everyone, but I can think of far worse places to go to school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How convenient and cheap it was to get from the airport to the medical campus using MetroLink!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I didn't know what to expect because of some things that I had heard about the school. But honestly, this was one of the best interviewing experiences that I've had all season, and I've gone to many. My interviewer was very nice and we literally had an easy going conversation for the whole hour. They are willing to talk about anything, so as long as you have some direction to what you're saying, the interview will be great! I came away very impressed with WashU and the opportunities that going to a school of this caliber entails." Report Response
