            As we move further into fall, it brings back memories of walking the beautiful tree-lined paths at the University of Washington. I loved going to classes there - great educators and friendly students. I couldn't have asked for me.

          • 2007-2012, BS

            There are so many things: from the diversity, to the instructors, to the organizations and learning opportunities. UW has it all. I loved my time at UW and miss it tremendously. You never realize how great things are until they're over. I hope to join UW again for my Residency after I graduate with my M.D.
