What are your general comments?

"This is the one time in your life that you must compromise who you are. If you are outgoing and ambitious you must present yourself as quiet and serious (specifically for the WWAMI program –they must see that you are the type that will stick to a small community). Huh... I have gladly come to learn that most med-schools are looking for the extroverts of this world. Also, the interviewers seemed to have a hard time staying awake, expect yawning (if at the end of the day and if the interviews were running late) so I had to do most of the talking (which could be a bad thing). Overall; if you have traveled around the world –don’t elaborate, stick to a small view of things, be somewhat nervous –so they don’t view you as too relaxed or “overconfident”, and play on the emotions of the executive member of the group –get her/him to like you. Remember, this may not apply for the in-state UW applicants. " Report Response
