What are your general comments?

"This is pretty important, this school is a lottery really. First off, I'm accepted here, so this is not a retaliatory submission. The positive comments on this website have been by those whom already attend the school or have been accepted. I don't think they should blow off the negative submissions by those who are frusterated and did not get in. "Slander" is inappropriate. This is my school now, and I admit it's defects in the interview process. I've come to accept that students will be overlooked in this process, and that respect may never come until we achieve the title of our profession. Let's just not forget that when we are doctors interviewing scarred stiff students. An effort has been made at UW, but the system fails. I will consider myself and pray that future physicians will not become bitter by this experience. The interview is nothing more than theatrics." Report Response
