What are your general comments?

"The intent of this small reflection is not meant to be hateful in any respect; although I am going to be honest. Let me ask an important question, 'does the interview measure what it is supposed to measure?' Does it have any indicative reliability? I would say no, at least not at UW. They (interviewers and board) are more interested in seeing who can kiss the most and largest ass. WOW, was 'ass' mentioned, yes and I fully assure you that I had and still have stronger words for how I felt during my interview. These great doctors did not take the time to understand/know me as a human being and I assure you that I am more than qualified for a position in this school but would kindly seek out a better institution. This is my advice for you. Good luck and may the Lord bless you along the way!" Report Response
