Interview Impressions

Washington - Seattle
University of Washington Program
10/8, 10/11
10/28, 11/12, 11/18, 11/25 (full), 12/9, 12/16, 1/13 (all full)
Yes, dinner at restaurant/external location
TONS of residents at dinner! Almost 1:1 ratio, and each day interview ~16 candidates. Very friendly and easygoing people, from all over the country but almost everyone chooses to stay in seattle for fellowship and life. On interview day, the PD and APD read out blurbs from your LORs in front of everyone. Breakfast and lunch, day ends promptly at 1:30, PD offers to stay and chat afterwards. We were told to not send thank-you letters, and that they would not be replied to. Also tons of residents available on interview day to chat.
Lots of powerpoints? Can't really think of a negative.
