Summary of Experience:
Application Complete 09/18; interview experience was really great. I loved all the people that I met and everybody was super friendly. The school is good but they really try way too hard to sell themselves as a top-tier med school. I thought it was excessive. Interviews were very laid-back, not stressful at all. if you like public health, there really is no better place to go. Madison is also a wonderful city.
I GOT ACCEPTED. What an amazing way to start Christmas early. I was getting worried with how this cycle was going too, but #YONO. (You only need one.)
