"I really like the Seattle area of Washington. The school itself- not much. Not that great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that I have to prove myself to people whom I don't know. I guess that is the theme of academics though. There's no better way. That does not change the fact that it royally SUCKS that my fate is now in the hands of someone who thinks they are able to make such a significant descision. Lottery..." Report Response

"Nothing really. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I enjoyed the previous two comments on this site- everyone I was with expressed resentment toward their interviewers afterward at lunch. I can't beleive they responed the way they did on this site. They are complete phonies!!! "Hi Dr. Samson," GIVE ME A BREAK. I guess some people want this so bad they will completely sell out. Good luck. For those who have not yet interviewed at UW- just go in there, know what you beleive in and be able to sound it out logically. If you meet resistance or are treated poorly (as many of you will) take your business elsewhere. You've made it this far, so stick to your guns and demand respect. This school needs to realize that it's being evaluated via this BS process as well!" Report Response
