If you would like to take the shuttle, please arrange to arrive at the airport by 7 p.m. to provide adequate time.

The evening before interviews, the social starts at 8:30 p.m. and takes place right on campus. It features an informational presentation about MCW, a question and answer session with a student panel, free food and drinks, and a chance to meet first and second year students. The gathering is informal, lasts approximately an hour and provides an excellent opportunity to get student insights, freely ask questions and sample the exciting atmosphere at MCW.

After the social, Applicant Host offers the opportunity to spend the night prior to your interview day at a medical student’s home. The overnight stay provides a more in-depth experience and eases some of the financial burden of your visit. Your student host will provide his or her unique perspective on life as a medical student, a comfortable place to sleep, breakfast, and a ride to MCW on the morning of your interview.
