What impressed you positively?

"I knew UW has a great reputation and there are wonderful opportunities for rural and international experiences. Plus, who can beat the in-state tuition??" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Seemingly arrogant attititude from some of the people I encountered- I'm not sure if this was part of the admissions process or if it carries over to the education or not. It seems the students are more competitive than collaborative. Lunch was ok." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really- I've been through this process before." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt that although the committee was not mean, it did not seem all that interested in truly getting to know who I am. I felt the questions were fairly generic and I was not able to highlight my strengths or reveal my character adequately. I do think however, that some positive changes have been made in the interview process. When I applied previously, the interviewers were rude and inappropriate. I did not encounter anything of the sort this year, perhaps because I had different interviewers. In any case the feedback smiley faces should be evident of some changes." Report Response
