    Today i received an email asking me to fill out their secondary after they reviewed my application. I'm not sure if anyone else got this email, but from what i know, it's very rare for a california resident to get an interview at UW unless you're a MSTP. does anyone know if UW screens? About a month ago, i received the first email saying they encourage us applicants to apply to their MSTP program, and pointed out that they accept a certain population from wyoming, montana, and the dakotas. Afterwards, i was a bit discouraged so eliminated them from my list of schools. Should i reconsider and send out the secondary?

    They take very few out-of-state applicants from outside of the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) area. To be considered I think you have to be a very outstanding applicant and be very passionate about primary care. They have some inforamtion on their website about it which I would recommend checking out.

    great job,

    I have also received the secondary as an IL resident, though my my alma matter is UW-Madison, so that may have some effect.

    In any case, they accept few out-of-staters, except those that fill some niche, such as diversity, etc...

    If you read the fine print you will see that a secondary actually means you have an interview, they will be sending out the schedule later.
    So yes, they screen HEAVILY.

    we need to clear up whether dirtybob is talking about U Washington or U Wisconsin. SMW is talking about U Washington, Mr. H is talking about U Wisconsin. U Wisconsin screens for secondaries and has already given out rejections. U Washington accepts maybe 1% out of state (not including WWAMI). I asked them about this once and they said it's EXTREMELY difficult to get in out-of-state/region. MSTP is prolly different though.

    Good catch, athena. But I think dirtybob is talking about UW in Seattle, WA from what he said about Montana and Wyoming (I assumed he just got the Dakotas part wrong). I think if you're an MSTP applicant the geographical constraints do not apply.
