Now that it's getting close to Halloween, we're running a contest to hear your scariest stories! These can be scary stories that you've experienced or stories that you've heard and the story with the most reactions will win!
You will find out on Wednesday morning. The coordinator will give you a folder that will contain a page with the interviewers' names and departments. I hope, for your sake, that you are not interviewed by Dean Samson. Apparently there is some rumor that those poor folks that he interviews do NOT get in. Of course, this is most likely just a rumor. I think that he is probably intimidating as an interviewer, but I've only spoken to him one-on-one, and he seemed very nice. The med student who interviewed me (it is a panel interview - 2 sci/clin faculty and 1 3rd or 4th year student) was obviously sleep deprived and toggled between spacing out and being ultra-confrontational. And there was a prof from the biochemistry faculty who was almost argumentative when I was talking about my research.
I hope that you have a better experience than I did. I was rather unimpressed by UW, which is surprising, for a top 10 school. I expected more out of the students (who seemed miserable) and the faculty (who seemed preoccupied). And I worked there at the dept. of medicine for three years...you'd think I would have known. Oh well. Good luck.
