Student Host Program:
If you are interested in staying with a current student, the
Medical Student Association has established an applicant hosting program for
individuals interviewing in Seattle. If you would like to take advantage of
this opportunity, please fill out this online form
. If you have further
questions about the program please email firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please keep in mind a response may take up
to a week. Accommodations will vary and are not guaranteed.
Although every effort will be made to match you with a
student host, requests made less than 2 weeks in advance may be denied due to
how busy our students’ schedules are. The Medical Student Association
prioritizes out-of-region applicants over in-region applicants living outside
the region, since they are less likely to be familiar with Seattle and have
somewhere to stay. We are unable to accommodate students who live or have
family within a 90 mile radius of Seattle.
