What are your general comments?

"Overall, this one was more stressful than others I had done but it still wasn't bad. Most of the questions were very general - why medicine? why UW? - but they did make a point to ask one or two ethical questions. They were tough questions, but the interviewers were nice about it. I got the impression they weren't trying to be mean, they just wanted to see that you have thought about things like that before and you can formulate a logical and confident answer. Just be ready for something like that and you will be fine. I would really recommend reading through everything on the UW's bioethics site: http://eduserv.hscer.washington.edu/bioethics/topics/index.html" Report Response
