What are your general comments?

"i had a really nice experience. i enjoyed meeting the applicants from Montana (I hope I'll see you guys in class next year!) and I thought the interview process was fair, efficient and informative. i had three female interviewers, which actually made me really comfortable, and they gave me a chance to talk about all the things I had hoped they would (traveling, tango, my background, job-shadowing). I think UW is a great school and I am sorry to hear that not everyone has had a positive experience interviewing there. I hope everyone can find a medical environment where they feel welcome and at home. For me, that place is UW, and I would even consider reapplying next year if I get rejected and get into other schools this year. " Report Response
