What was the most interesting question?

"[Note: I prefer not to answer the "which questions were you asked" questions to safeguard my privacy.]" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I lived a decent life where I tried each and every day to do what is right. I challenged myself to do things that would make me a better person, not things that I thought would get me in." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"What impressed me most was that my interviewers were impressed with me. They asked personal questions that might be difficult for some people to answer, but in the end they left me feeling good about myself. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A few of the the other applicants. To be honest, the current pool of medical school applicants is not all that it really ought to be. People who come to the interview with the attitude that the other applicants are nothing more than competitors who should be psyched-out make me sick. If this is you, grow up. Or, if you take revenge on a school that didn't accept you by posting nasty comments here, you might want to take a good long look in the mirror before you resubmit your application. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That trying to be friendly to other interviewees might not get the response you think you deserve. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although interviews are not really relaxing or fun (it is an interview after all, not a paid vacation), the staff and students did a great job at putting me at ease and letting me show them who I am. No, the student at lunch did not bubble into the room and squeal with glee while telling us about his experience, but I was glad he didn't. The UW is a first-rate school on all levels, and it's a bargain deal. However, medical school is hard work, and I appreciate the fact that he didn't sugar coat it for me. While some other schools really dig in with the hard sell on how beautiful their campuses are or how close they are to world-class ski lifts, etc. etc. the UW doesn't have to do that. Seattle is an amazing city (especially for students and young professionals) and the UW is an amazing school, so people who try to slam either one by whining about their interview just come off sounding like bitter little trolls.
