"Academically, UW has a great reputation. They're really focused on churning out primary care physicians to serve the rural parts of the Pacific Northwest. If that's what you want, then God bless. Just don't mention to them that you'd like some urban experiences as well. Everyone's demeanor immediately soured as soon as I mentioned enjoying urban life. " Report Response
