University of Washington Reviews

UW is a great school: excellent professors, interesting courses, and mid-size cohorts. Of course, Seattle is also beautiful with plenty to do and see! I would say that it was also pretty highly priced and- in my program specifically- it was hard to find funding. It has also been hard to find a job after my program; I wished I utilized the on campus career center more.

From the first moment everyone has been very kind, they always answer my doubts and when I have had problems with some requirement they have had tons of patience. I am very grateful and proud to have entered such a prestigious institution. They all motivate me to be better every day and to give my best effort, the courses they offer are of the best quality and I have to choose where I want to guide my career and my future. In addition, the facilities are huge and there is a place to choose from for all kinds of tastes.
I'm trying to apply to live on campus in the graduate student apartments because they are very comfortable and have great locations and a great price compared to other places, plus it's very convenient to live with your classmates. I know that graduating from this university will open doors for me everywhere and that whatever path I choose from this point on, I will have the right foundation thanks to the knowledge acquired here. I recommend to everyone, apply and try
Good medical program, although at times some disorganization in the PA program. Staff is definitely interested in supporting students, which makes it a worthwhile investment!
