What are your general comments?

"Be prepare to stay calm during the drilling. The interviewers were never disrepectful but they were constantly serious and are very attentive to what you have to say. Know when to stop bsing on subjects your not well versed in, like the National Health care topic that is probably played to death by pre-med offering a solution to the American Health Care delivery system. Overall the UW interview was tough and you might walk out feeling like you completely bombed it, but you might be surprise at the final decision. Be prepare for it or else your gonna look stupid. I hope what I have posted has helped(I know this site has helped me prepared). Goodluck future interviewees!" Report Response
