What are your general comments?

"Overall, I guess I'd say it was disappointing. The interview was kind of a poorly run good cop-bad cop, with the overall effect more irritating than stressful. There's a fine line between general disregard and outright disrespect, and it seems like the UW comes right up to it. I'm from Seattle, and before the interview, the UW was far & away my first choice. Although I'm still waiting (I know, it's getting late in the year), after the interview I have reservations where none previously existed. I'm lucky enough to have a couple other options by this point, and if the UW came through I'd really have to think twice about it. But hey, when you're the best and one of the most inexpensive, I guess you can afford to play hardball--it's a great school any way you cut it." Report Response
