"I already knew (along with everyone else) that UW is an amazing school and definitely has earned its position as one of the top institutes in the country. The entire experience reaffirmed for me why I want to be a part of the school. The tours/presentations were informative and interesting. The interviewers challenged me, but in a positive way and actually furthered my interest and commitment to medicine. I really felt the school treated me with respect and acknowledged everything I have done to get to this point. The other candidates interviewing with me were very pleasant and cordial. Extremely happy with the whole process...now just crossing my fingers until next week!" Report Response
