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.
