What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers seemed legitimately interested in who I was and what I was about. The clinical facilities are very nice. There is an incredible amount of opportunities for research and extracurricular involvement at UW. The faculty seems to be absolutely top notch and committed to providing a world class clinical education. You don't have to be involved in research but if you so desire, there aren't many schools that will present better experiences. The RIDE program looks great too and I would highly recommend looking into it. Smaller class sizes is also a plus, as is the quality of student at the school" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are old and not in great shape, walking around the building is like walking through service corridors in a 50 year old hospital. The actual clinics and sim clinics are very nice and have the latest technology, but the rest of the facilities are old and it shows. There also appears to be a patient shortage recently for the D3 (especially) and D4 clinical students, as well as probable upcoming tuition hikes." Report Response
