What are your general comments?

"For the interviewers (I hear they review this site)- You need to deflate your ego and be SERVE US in a respectful manner. Is this how you treat your patients? You're a poor reflection of UW. If this is how people treat one another, NO THANKS. Here's MY evaluation of YOU- you're all a bunch of arrogant, smug geeks and your MD title does not mean shit. UW is obtaining a rather poor reputation amongst medical schools. You are a big part of that. I look forward to being a much better, more compassionate doctor than ALL OF YOU." Report Response
