What are your general comments?

"They didn't ask about my research at all. I also worked for a year in a clinic for homeless drug addicts as an EMT, and they didn't seem to care about that either. It seems like they are mostly concerned with experiences like shadowing and hospital volunteering. So if you apply/ interview at UW be sure to sell those kind of experiences." Report Response
