What impressed you positively?

"P/F. Great clinical curriculum. People were nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Hypocrisy (interviewed by a surgical subspecialist who was grilling me about my interest in primary care? wtf). Lackluster facilities. Mediocre pre-clinical years. It rains here all the time. Very different admissions requirements for people from different states (much easier to get in if from Alaska vs. WA. It seems odd to have different expectations for different applicants at the same, well-ranked school.)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Students here seemed extra crunchy granola. I felt like I would probably be ostracized if I didn't ride a bike to class and eat only locally sourced produce from whatever Whole Foods equivalent is in the U District." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The best part about this school is the clinical curriculum. They push it as some unique arrangement, but in reality anybody could do a large number of rural/AHEC/away rotations at almost any US medical school. The natural beauty of the region is undeniable, and it would be nice to travel around to different clinical sites." Report Response
