What are your general comments?

"Great school! If you are flying in I recommend taking the Metrolink from Lambert to Central West End and then walking ~ 5mins to Olin Hall. Go to the pizza party if you can. We had the chance to meet with many MS1/2s and they all seemed very relaxed and happy to be at WashU. I stayed in Olin Hall and they provided a pillow, sheets, towels, and soap. You can also ask for an ethernet cable from the front desk if you need to go online. There is an early breakfast the next day that I also recommend (there is no food other than candy in the admissions office). Most people will have 1 open-file interview lasting ~1hr but a few have a second, short "quality-control" interview. The interview itself is low stress and more of a getting to know you experience. The tour of the hospital complex was one of the best I have been a part of. We had the chance to see the main hospitals, the anatomy lab, and also sat in on one of the first year lectures. The facilities were excellent and there was a diverse patient population. I think most people were done around 2-3pm. If you have some extra time I would also recommend checking out the nearby park and zoo." Report Response
