What are your general comments?

"I was preparing for a very intense and stressful interview. It actually wasn't that bad. They asked a lot of questions related to my application and they seemed interested in getting to know me and my motivations to study medicine. They asked only one ethics question and one health policy question. Overall, the interview was a good experience. Attention to UW undergrads: I think they have access to your undergrad file including your undergrad personal statement. They knew that I played jazz saxophone in high school, something that I know I did not mention in my med school application." Report Response
