WWAMI Admissions Interviews in Laramie, WY

Interviews for all Wyoming WWAMI applicants are one week long and take place in either January or February. The next series of interviews will begin Monday January 9, 2017.  If you would like to visit the Seattle campus, you may make arrangements to do so some time after your interview in Laramie. The faculty, students, and staff of the WWAMI Medical Education Program at the University of Wyoming and at the University of Washington School of Medicine look forward to introducing you to WWAMI and its programs.

Candidates are reviewed by the Executive Committee of the Committee on Admission several days after the interview. At this meeting, one of three things will happen: you may be accepted, you may be denied admission, or you may continue to be under consideration. Some applicants who interview in January remain under consideration until the final decisions are made in late March.

Interviews for applicants from Wyoming will have one to two members of the Wyoming WWAMI Admissions Committee as part of the interviewing committee. WWAMI applicants are interviewed by three committee members at one time.

Admissions Process & Interview Structure


Every medical school applicant's file is carefully assessed by two members of the Executive Committee of the Committee on Admissions. Each member makes a separate, anonymous determination concerning the merits of an application and whether or not the applicant should be interviewed. If the two reviewers disagree, the application is screened by a third reviewer.

Admissions Committee

The Admissions Committee is comprised of over 120 faculty, student, and community members. Twenty faculty members of the Admissions Committee members serve on the Executive Committee (EXCOM). An EXCOM member leads every interview group and becomes the applicant's representative at the Executive Committee meetings, where final decisions concerning acceptance are made. The Wyoming WWAMI Admissions Committee consists of four Wyoming physicians and/or Wyoming medical educators.

Interview Structure

Your interview will last 30 to 40 minutes and will be conducted by a committee of three individuals. The chairperson of the interview committee sits on the EXCOM and will have full access to your entire file; the regular committee members will have everything but your grades and MCAT scores.

Final Decisions and Alternate Lists

The Admissions Committee will have its final Executive Committee meeting several days after the interviews. Up to twenty applicants may be accepted to fill the Wyoming WWAMI Program Entering classes.  In addition, an alternate list will be developed from other acceptable candidates.

Exit Interviews

The University of Washington School of Medicine's Admissions Office will hold four educational sessions for unsuccessful applicants. Each session will cover one of the common reasons for non-acceptance to medical school, and each session will be podcasted and made available on the UWSOM website.   In addition, the University of Wyoming Preprofessional Advising Office offers its services to help these candidates strengthen their applications.
