What impressed you negatively?

"when i interviewed, i got the impression that wsu is really for people who want to live at home/live independently in a city and go to school...i was really unimpressed with the fact that students attend lecture less than half the time and choose to stream them from the internet (in the words of the tour guide) ''because they would much rather sleep and get up in the afternoon.'' there seems to be no camaraderie within the class, there is an utter lack of ''student life.'' if you're working, have kids, or are married...this would be the school for you but if not why would you want to give up the amazing college-like experience medical schools like UMich can give you? there's also little research at this school and little encouragement to do it (i.e. nothing is built into the program). even if you don't want to do research, i think the research background to a school is fundamental to the quality of teaching. why does a school like duke tend to focus less on textbooks? b/c the professors draw from their research and cutting edge basic science to teach you material. thus, people who graduate from a place like duke are taught to be the leaders in their fields...and they truly know what it means to be that. that being said, i was impressed w/ wsu's clinical program...and their students get into a wide range of specialties. all this goes to show that it DOES matter where you go for medical school...these schools are incredibly different (in their own right) but can produce very different types of physicians have different goals."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That you should read the letter to find where to go for the interview. Don't read their directions on the website." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was not happy w/ this school. I know that I'm not going to be coming here...there's a big difference between this school and the other schools i've interviewed at. it makes me appreciate the unique programs top 20 schools have that much more. read below for the type of person WSU is made for... the interview was chill. my interviewer was very nice and it was obvious to me that he was a sharp and excellent clinician. however, the questions he asked me were kind of the ''duh, did you read my application...it says it right there'' type of questions. he did the whole ''eye-burn'' thing very well as an interviewer...you know, when an interviewer locks eyes with you to make you feel uncomfortable and maintains eye contact even during moments of silence LOL. I will not be surprised if I am rejected from this school as it was glaringly obvious during the course of the interview that it was not a fit for me and that i wouldn't come here if i were accepted b/c i want much more from my medical school experience that wayne can't offer me. wayne's for a different type of person/student (read below)."
