What impressed you positively?

"Very friendly staff, students, and city. It was great, I fell in love the moment I left the airport for Seattle, and I've never been there before. The people were so accomodating and the interviewers seemed like they REALLY wanted to get to know ME. The neglected GPA/MCAT at that point, it was all on the essays and interview!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"CAn't say much here, possibly that during one of the questions I was asked to stop and another question was asked. But I guess that wasn't so bad because I found it soon after I got in so I guess the interview went well! :-)" Report Response

"As stated above, it was great. I really felt like I was not trying to sell myself, but rather trying to just converse with my interviewers. The second interview of the day for me was even better, we didn't even formally interview, it was more like a chat. WE just talked about everything from sports to weather, it was wonderful! What can I say, I loved it!!" Report Response
