  1. I also haven't heard anything from my interview on 9/26. I sent an email asking for an update after couple of weeks, but never got a response. So you aren't alone and neither am I.
  2. Hello all, I Interviewed on Oct 25, and was notified that I was waitlisted on Oct 30. Yesterday afternoon I received a call offering me acceptance. I still haven't fully processed the good news. I think they waitlisted almost everyone and are now extending offers. Best of luck to everyone! Dean
  3. I just called and confirmed a reservation for Wednesday under my name. I look forward to meeting you all. Congrats again to everyone! -Dean
  4. Sorry, I meant to include a link to their website: https://www.facebook.com/costasontheave/ http://www.costasontheave.com/contact-costas-restuarant/ It's walking distance from campus and the hotel where the interviews are being help.
  5. Last year some people met at Costa's restaurant, which seemed to work well. They have a good variety of food, aren't too pricey, and it was large enough and quiet enough for us. I'll make a reservation with them again for Wednesday the 25 at 7pm. I look forward to meeting some of you there. Best of luck.
  6. I honestly can't remember where I found it, I was just googling to try to find sample questions, and it was the format they used last year. They will go over the format and explain everything the morning of, but this was my experience last year. There were three interviews, each with two other interviewees and two interviewers. Each interview was 45 minutes, shared between the three candidates. The first interview (theoretically) is getting to know the candidates, tell us about yourself stuff. The second interview was about ethics (either tell us about a time you faced an ethical decision, or here is an ethical problem). The third was about critical thinking/problem solving. There are lots of interview teams and you will be with different candidates for each interview and so there is some variation and luck. I think seeing a face or two from the night before can be a big help. I look forward to meeting you. -Dean
  7. Hello all and congrats to everyone who was invited to interview for MEDEX Seattle on Sept 26. I am looking forward to meeting you all on interview day. This is my second year applying and last year, some of us met up the night before just to talk and get to know each other. I found it helpful and I think we all went into the interviews a little more relaxed. Those of us who are local could answer questions about living in Seattle, for those who might be moving here soon. If you would like to meet up for happy hour on the 25th, there is a nice little place within walking distance of the hotel. Please let me know if you would like to attend so that I can get a rough headcount for a reservation. I was thinking maybe 6:30pm? I also found this PDF that describes the MEDEX interview process. I look forward to meeting you all and good luck. -Dean T217.pdf
  8. I have made a reservation at Costa's at 6pm under the name "Medex PA". I look forward to meeting you all.
  9. Its great to hear so many people want to meet up the night before. Since no one is objecting to my plan of Costa's I figured I would post the details again. Costa's Restaurant, 4559 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105 https://www.facebook.com/costasontheave 6pm I will call in the next few days to let them know and reserve a table. I look forward to meeting everyone.
  10. Congrats again to everyone making it this far. Several people have expressed interest in meeting up the day or evening before. I think this is a great idea so we can see some friendly faces and share any interview tips. There is a restaurant Costa's about a 10 min walk up the hill from the interview hotel. If other people would like to meet, I will be there starting at 6pm and holding a table. Come have dinner or a coffee with me. Please let me know in this thread so I can make sure to hold a big enough table.
  11. Thank for starting this thread. I found a PDF/PPT that appears to describe the format of the interview conference. I found it very useful. T217.pdf
  12. I just found this forum because I was searching for info on the interview. I would love to meet up with others as well. Congrats to all who got invited.
