What are your general comments?

"The committee was running late- I waited over an hour and completely missed the lunch session and other presentations. My head interviewer seemed to be paying very little attention to my answers and actually appeared to be nodding off after a while. They drill you with ethical questions and then make you feel like you are completely wrong. One of my interviewers actually told me that he wanted a different answer. They made no attempt to make me feel like the school wanted me to come- something that I felt at every other school I interviewed with. It was very much a "you'll be lucky if we take you" attitude. UW was my first choice when I went, it became one of my last after I left. However, I did end up getting in, deciding to go because of the price, and am very happy with my choice so far...so I guess you never know..." Report Response
