There's also the prestige of the "Georgetown" name, along with abundant research opportunities, and being in DC, opportunities to get your hands dirty with policy. There does appear to be a strong emphasis on clinical skills and preparing for a positive residency experience. According to the admissions office, the school emphasizes service to the underserved. Ms. Sullivan's speech about selecting a medical school was excellent. Also, there are some unique curricular opportunities (mind-body-medicine, health justice scholars track, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Culture of the area. The relaxed mindset of the students. They emphasize having a social life outside of med school. School is more focused on producing clinicians instead of researchers." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was expecting to not like this visit based on what other interviewees had said about their experience. I think it really depends on who you get as your school speakers that particular day! I had heard they would stress the conservative catholic nature of the school but our guy came right out and said that the only real difference it made (besides their emphasis on caring for underserved populations) was that on your OB/GYN rotation you wouldn't be able to see abortions at THEIR hospital but that they would be happy to set you up with a rotation elsewhere where you could see one.. Hard to say if they are really that chill or if that one guy represented the far left of their admin.... The internist who runs the Hoya clinic spoke to us at lunch and she seemed really awesome! Also I love the location that has some trees and isn't right in heart of downtown like GWU" More from this Member | Report Response

"The other interviewees, the area, the guide." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really don't know where to start with this question. First off, the campus was the most beautiful campus I think I've ever seen. The architecture and brick buildings were magnificent and the vegetation surrounding campus was lush and abundant. Each corner I turned as I walked through campus made me want to take out my camera and snap away. And the neighborhoods surrounding campus were very quaint and charming. The two tour guides were extremely upbeat and informative. Their positive attitudes really made me feel like I would welcomed there. I really liked the 'feel' of the medical school facilities. I always have to picture myself in a place (considering it would be a 4 year commitment) and I could definitely see myself spending time there day in and day out, walking down those hallways, and sitting in those classrooms. The library was very impressive. Many courses will be available on audio and video starting next year (fabulous!), the classrooms looked really well-equipped and technologically up-to-date. People around campus were really friendly. Personally, the cura personalis philosophy captures what I've always thought a medical school curriculum should offer. I was hoping that this wasn't a fleeting statement that doesn't really stick when you delve into the medical school course load. But our tour guide, who I really felt was trying to give us an uncensored picture of the school, said that it has always been a constant throughout her time there (she was a 2nd year) and I learned that courses based on morally, ethically, and culturally delicate issues of the profession are a continuous part of the education here. I felt really encouraged by Mrs. Sullivan's talk. What I got out of it was a much different story than what I've read from some other posters on here. Of course she was trying to help everyone come to terms with whether we truly wanted to go to GUMS-- or just get into 'a' medical school, but I also think she came from a genuine place and was trying to help us understand that whether we received an acceptance was OUR choice to make. Loved the idea of working in the Hoya clinic, NIH, WHO, getting involved in health care reform on capitol hill, a gazillion different affiliated hospitals and facilities, doing international electives, and many many other opportunities you can't really beat.

A lot has been said about her infamous orientation brief - from my perspective, it was very informative and provided a realistic insight into what you could expect to receive from your medical education at Georgetown. She does not deserve the criticism she has received because of her firm belief in accountability (by the way, if you do happen to read this, my name is Dan ;) ). I applaud her conviction!"

I wish this had been my first interview because she made some really good points about questions to ask at interviews and ways to evaluate schools. I found her to be very informative...she also memorized each interviewee's name, school, and various other info...this makes a nice impression.

Very articulate, and she's very clear...if you interview at a school and don't get in, you were not able to adequately convey why you are a perfect fit for their school. At least for me, that comment was empowering. In the one hour introduction to Georgetown med, Mrs. Sullivan makes you want to be a part of the Georgetown tradition of community outreach and patient advocacy. Dr. O'Toole is also great. Very friendly, very funny, and you can sense his sincere desire to help the underserved and make changes for the better in medicine. Out of all my interviews, Georgetown really had me at attention and inspired. " More from this Member | Report Response

The school also has very unique programs-namely alternative medicine, ethics, and religion in medicine classes. The people here are fantastic-down to earth, relaxed and happy.

They also gave us their emails to address future questions. Altough the tour was pretty disorganized, I had a good time and I felt like the relaxed atmosphere of the tour suited me. I was amazed that Georgeen and Mrs. Sullivan knew my name especially coming from a large university where no one seems to care what anyone's name is.

The intro to the school--Mrs. Sullivan made such an honest and strong statement about what Georgetown is all about, the facilities, the surrounding area, the students, my interviewer--probably the nicest man I've ever met, besides that he's got an MD, law degree, multiple PhD's, he's a Priest, and he used to be a military officer" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's willingness to acknowledge other forms of medicine (i.e. accupuncture, they point out the meridians during anatomy lab) Also, the non-religious approach of students and faculty. Even though it is a Catholic school, it only shows itself very subtley, in a positive way.

Great opportunities for everything from community service to spending time abroad! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Ms. Sullivan is awesome and Georgina talked to me in Spanish knowing that I was fluent. They all know you when you come in. My interview was supposed to be closed-file, but my interviewer read my file before coming to get me, which was good. It was supposed to last 30-40 minutes. Mine lasted an hour and 20 minutes. I just really clicked with my interviewer. The school's philospohy is great- they want to make sure you really want to go there. They basically told us what we had to say to get accepted.

"The school is in constant flux. True, the facilities are not state of the art, but rennovations are completely underway for many of the facilities, such as the interactive learning center. The curriculum is not static, in that, it is constantly evolving and improving. Mrs.Sullivans speech will definately give you the best picture as to if GU-SOM is or is not meant for you.

Of all the people I have personally met in my life, she is one of the most memorable speakers who exudes amazing character and a genuine concern about others (including the interviewees!). If one were blind or deaf to her wisdom and intelligence, it would be a shame. Pay attention and remember what she has to say, for it applies to most areas of life and one would probably have a richer life if they are aware of such things. Reggie G."

"I really have no idea why everyone is so scared/intimidated by Mrs. Sullivan's talk. She tells you straight up what Georgetown is about (it is unique), its Cura Personalis philosophy, and goes on to say that it is not the best choice for everyone. She's honest and simply tells it as it is. She even offers a set of wonderful guidelines that can be used to select the best medical school for us. I don't understand what everyone's problem is with her; I guess no one likes her for actually caring about helping us find the school that fits us the best. After reading everyone's reviews about the facilities, i was expecting a garbage dump. However, what i found was decently nice facilities, with many improvements in the works. This is a school rich with tradition and will teach you how to become an all around healer, not just a master of the basic sciences. Listen to Mrs. Sullivan carefully: if you like what you hear, G'Town might be the place for you. If you do not, don't just bash the school: just say it wasn't for you and move on with your life."

"The interviewer spoke only about their own research, asked very little to get to know me, and really scared me with his opinion on an ethical scenario which seemed 100% antithetical to Georgetown's mission and values. The interviewer told me they had discouraged their daughter from coming to Georgetown (she ended up going to another school) and that Georgetown physicians were subpar in the treatment of the interviewer's spouse. The tour was incredibly limited and led by an M2 who had very little knowledge about years 2, 3, or 4 (she had just started M2). Only students I got a chance to speak to were the tour guides. In general, there seemed to be a pervasive arrogance about the place and an appeal to the name of Georgetown without actually backing it up with substance." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we would have been allowed into the hospital to get a peek. The tour overall could have been much more in-depth, although they do make a point of providing you will information for a self-guided tour at the end of the interview day for those of you who do not have a strict travel time.

Despite Ms. Sullivan's speech about Georgetown's institutional "cura personalis" values, I'm not sure the rest of the faculty and students gave me the same impression; I did not feel that the student experiences there are radically different from anywhere else, but at least I did like what Ms. Sullivan had to say about the school's mission and approach to medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Still not sure if I want to go to a Jesuit school" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer. He was an M4 and it may have been his first time as an interviewer: he was obviously very nervous and scrambling to find questions most of the time.

"Students who came to talk to us in the conferance room about how much they spend on drinking and how much they get drunk after tests.

I'd suggest reminding students to tone this type of talk down or screening those who talk to applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"Where to begin? The day began with an awkward introduction by two of the admissions staff, followed by a ridiculously long, melodramatic rhetoric from Ms. Sullivan about how "medical school all teach the same thing, so you need to be right for Georgetown." Presumably this means cura personalis, which the tour guides insisted they didn't teach in the lectures anyway. So that leaves you with old facilities in a yellow basement, a hospital that bleeds money and a school that is clearly paranoid about their lackluster ranking. Tour guide claimed GU was her only acceptance. Don't tell people that. Interviewer was unwilling or unable to understand the nature of my research and wanted to discuss cura personalis, not the focus on international care that GU purports itself to have. I had trouble discussing an idea that I wasn't sure existed." More from this Member | Report Response

"They have done some recent changes to their curriculum so there might be some kinks to be worked out. Also, even though the interviews are "open-file," my interviewer had not looked at mine before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything. If I had known what I know now, I wouldn't have wasted my day there. The curriculum has a bad track record - it seems to be continually evolving due to student complaints. The facilities are awful. Just see for yourself. The admissions staff are the rudest I've come across yet. Georgetown is too focused on emphasizing that it selects a very particular kind of student for its class, and after meeting some of the students, I seriously question the criteria. Georgetown continually ranks poorly as a medical school, and the reasons become apparent on the interview day. Also, I asked the students if the teaching faculty was good, and they unanimously told me that they were disappointed with their lecturers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer never read my file before interviewing me." More from this Member | Report Response

"-The facilities weren't nice at all (bummer) -The students who gave the tour (seemed a little too immature to be grad students) -The staff (unfriendly) -The fact that the med school meshes with the undergrad facilities/students. It doesn't create an environment that makes you feel like you're in grad school. -The delivery of curriculum has been changing left and right due to student complaints. Not a strong track record in that area. " More from this Member | Report Response

Sullivan... she seemed more interested in bashing other schools than on talking about Georgetown... her talk was easily the longest 2 hours of my life... after her talk I could have cared less to even stay around. I was very disappointed in Georgetown, I guess I need to realize that they are known for basketball and law... not for medicine. The tour didn't even include the hospital, kind of odd considering med students spend over two years there... instead we got to see some hotel/banquet center. The tour guides were awful and quite honestly some of the most unintelligent people I have ever met. They made some big deal about having A computer in their anatomy laboratory.... wow! A whole computer for the class? Honestly, I would throw everything away that I have done up to this point in my life than to attend Georgetown." More from this Member | Report Response

So I will have to come to terms with more aggressive driving in DC (and probably anywhere else in the country for that matter). Since I'm originally from CA, I guess have been spoiled by the most stringent pedestrian protection laws in the country...but oh well, not that big of a deal!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude of the faculty, students and staff (pretty arrogant but with a large inferiority complex to boot). The whole 'cura personalis' thing which is really not unique to their school. The extent to which the Catholic affiliation effected the school (no stem cell research!). Cost of attendance and debt at graduation. My interviewer answered his phone no less than 5 times during the interview. Most of all: the teaching facilities, in the basement, very run-down looking." More from this Member | Report Response

"1) the facilities were definitely the worst that i've been 2) Georgetown hospital was sold to MedStar apparently because the med center's in hundreds of millions of debt (found this later in the news); they are still in debt after the sell 3) the med library seems underfunded (someone got trapped in the elevator; according to the librarian, that is quite common) 4) the student body was very homogeneous ethnically and in other aspects as well (surprising for a school located in D.C.) 5) first-year med school is spent competing with non-med students that comprise almost 50% of the class (SMPs as they call it); apparently it's the school's way of making money to counter how much debt it's in" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions officers seemed ridiculously insecure about the school and its future. Furthermore, they were not friendly at all to the interviewees compared to all the other interviews I've been to." More from this Member | Report Response

"I highly discourage anyone from going to this school for many reasons. I stayed with a student host who was an exceptional person, very well accomplished, and down-to-earth. The downside is that my student host was so miserable at this school that s/he is looking into transferring into a different medical school, and strongly discouraged me from going to Georgetown. This says a lot about the school: poor program, faculty that does NOT care about the students, high costs, generally a very bad experience. I decided to not let my hosts' opinions affect my views of the school, so I went to my interview completely neutral-minded. Unfortunately, my interviewer was the worst interviewer I have ever had out of about 8-10 prior interviews at other much better schools (Vandy, Sinai, NYU & others). He was completely unfriendly, rude, stoic and unresponsive to my answers. The tour proved rather informative in showing the schools mediocre facilities and students.

Tour guides were M1/M2, we were not introduced to any M-3/M-4 students, so didn't get a feel for what clinicals are like. Georgetown is completely restructuring the M1 and M2 curriculum, so students and staff were both unsure of the details." More from this Member | Report Response

We sat for much of the day in a really cold, impersonal glassed in space by ourselves, with long gaps of time between presentations. Our tour was rushed, with one first-year student who couldn't answer many of our questions and didn't stay for lunch. There were no other opportunities to speak to students, which is when you really learn more about a school." More from this Member | Report Response

"1) The med student hosting was no essistent, I had to make last minute arrangements with a friend of a friend 2) There was no one there to great the interviewees as they arrived. 3) The facilities, i.e. the ventilation in the anatomy lab is nonexistent 4) We were only introduced to one med student the whole day, she was the tour guide. And she didn't seem to know much about anything. As a matter of fact we were lost for a short bit. 5) My interviewer canceled on me, so I was interviewed by someone who hadn't seen any of my information at all and spent 30 seconds scanning over it after I arrived 6) The interviewer talked for the first 15 minutes straight. I had to start interjecting just to be able to get a word it. 7) I didn't like the location of the school, it is kind of set aside from everything else and is in a pretty affluent area. Not great when the reason you want to be a doctor is to help the underpriviledged. 8) The ridiculous rents in DC, and that is coming from someone that lives in the bay area."

"The students did not seem terribly enthusiastic about their school. They said they liked it - but weren't all that convincing - and had so-so things to say about their professors. There is no mannequin for heart/lung sounds (almost all schools have these) and no microscopes for histology. The curriculum is not organ based, it is by subject.

"The first school I've interviewed at where students and faculty openly admit that there is a fair degree of competition. They claim this cannot be avoided and takes pressure off of USMLE exams. I find this argument convincing, but I'd still prefer a place that is more laid back and doesn't need competition to compel students to study. I think one can learn something (albeit minor) about a school by the type of people it interviews...This is a consideration I've made at each school b/c those people at the interview may end up as my classmates. Realizing its a tiny sample though, (and that the jerks may not be offered admission) I look for the overall attitude of the applicants. A few of the students seemed arrogant - ones I wouldn't want as classmates." More from this Member | Report Response

Plus physician salaries are going down." More from this Member | Report Response

"The MD/PhD structure was a little difficult to understand for me. I thought the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education is the department that oversees it because all communication goes through his office, but according to the students, its someone else. And I only had 2 PhD interviews because the third one was unable to make it due to the weather--one interviewer was very talkative and asked few questions and the other asked me some questions and told me much about the program; but I am not sure how much they learned about me."

It is really disconcerting when someone who is not a part of the decision-making admissions comittee tells you that she has read everyone's files, says that some of us might not be the best match for Georgetown, and then singles out an interviewee, saying he had the best essay. She also lectured us on firm handshakes and looking our interviewers in the eye, which some people might have found helpful, but I find unnecessary (by this point shouldn't we already know that?) and condescending."

I wasn't certain why we just walked around aimlessly for such a long time...totally disorganized (which, again, is a shame mainly because the rest of the day was very, very organized). I also didn't like waiting in suspense for my interviewer - it just seemed a bit excessive. Why make us wait for so long? Why not have our interviews set up at the beginning of the day so we know?

Of course I was there one day and had to make a quick judgement." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students. Unlike other schools, the students did not come talk to the interviewees. The student tour guides were not knowledgeable about the school or program at all (perhaps because they were first years) and they did not seem that impressive and were kind of dull. My interviewer also negatively impressed me. He was a MS4 and had absolutely no facial expression and was very monotone. It appeared that he wasn't even listening to what i was saying almost as if he couldn't be bothered with it. The questions were just recited and there weren't really any follow up questions that there should have been. It was a lousy way to end the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"You spend pretty much all day sitting in the "fish bowl" hearing talks about Georgetown. The tour was brief and didn't show much of the campus.

In your surgery rotation you're expected to be there 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. You are also on call either every third day or every other day. They haven't even taught you most basic procedures by then. Again, why are you there? And two, how are you expected to pass the shelf exams if you have no time to study."

The 4 students that had lunch with us were the most unenthusiastic I have seen at any interview, and one tour guide was outright obnoxious. The facilities are definitely not worth the price.

"The facilities were really disappointing...very old, and run-down. There are rumors of renovation, but who knows if that will happen in our lifetime." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt that the tour was a bit disorganized and incomplete, but under the time constraint, it was understandable. The cost to attend Georgetown is very expensive, but you also have to remember that these costs are comparable to most private medical schools in urban areas. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, especially the anatomy lab with the dirty floor. I'm still concerned about Georgetown's financial problems, and how that affects certain opportunities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff seemed to want to deter people from coming to Georgetown. I took this, however, as their way of letting people know what to expect and trying to help people decide whether they would fit in at Georgetown or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost!! It's pretty much the same as most of the private schools... but there is a big difference when you are comparing the costs of a private school to a state school! Also, parking is horrible, but that is true with a lot of schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost and the apparent stress level of the students. They get high quality clinical training, but at a high cost: both monetary and physically." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities weren't the newest.." More from this Member | Report Response

"None of the interviewees spoke to each other. It was the most akward silence since we were in the "fish bowl" quite a bit. Made me question the type of applicant Georgetown attracts. In my other interviews, the applicants all spoke to each other throughout the day and got to know each other." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were not impressive at all - dingy lecture hall, pathetic student lounge, small library with scant hours, dirty floor in the anatomy lab (yuck!), Georgetown seems like an inconvenient place to live (no Metro stops, no parking, too expensive to live in G-town so you must live in a surrounding neighborhood). Also, the fitness facility is said to be not-so-hot." More from this Member | Report Response

"extremely expensive to live in dc. welcome to big cities. no parking. med school a bit dated." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't realize that the school had fallen out of the U.S. News Top 50 (not that rankings always matter). The cost of living in Washington is quite high." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't very impressed with the students, one in particular..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't really care for the weather. It was a bit too humid for my tastes. I don't think the interviewer really was interested though. He was a bit late, and during the interview, he was trying to hide yawns a few times." More from this Member | Report Response

"they interview too many people, and this fact permeates some of their admissions process: ie, closed file interviews, they have had problems with interviewers not paying full attention to interviewees or cutting out early (my interviewer glanced at his watch). The facilities are very unimpressive (many classrooms are on the basement level). HUGE financial problems at G-town...that's why they ask you to submit a credit report..." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really--the tour could have been better, i guess, and the cost of tuition is pretty depressing, but i knew about that ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"the day was very long - an hour or two could have been cut out and the program would have still been just as effective." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost, though I did appreciate them breaking it down for us." More from this Member | Report Response

"Like with all private schools: ITS FREAKIN EXPENSIVE!" More from this Member | Report Response

"price (cheaper than GW, but still), and LONG hours in clas through years one or two" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour wasn't the greatest" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour--it lasted barely 20 minutes and we didn't even get to see their hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school seems...small. and very expensive. and there's no on campus housing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Money." More from this Member | Report Response

"how stressed everyone seemed" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of financial aid. I also wish I could've talked to more students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities/medical library seemed dated. Financial matters are a serious consideration." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems like it's financially strapped. The financial aid presentation was very thorough and useful, but they're pretty clear that you're going to be in ALOT of debt of you go here. And then you meet with a dean who defends why the hospital merged with another group which apparently was controversial to some people but which i had no idea about. " More from this Member | Report Response

"price and students" More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities and other applicants. well, one in particular really bothered me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students I observed could have been more friendly and didn't seem too happy/outgoing. However, the students I spoke to were great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Ancient facilities, no attempt to incorporate technology into the curriculum, lack of class diversity as stated on our tour given by first-year students!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Too religious, seem to have serious financial problems, not great facilities, and no housing." More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilities are a bit... well-worn" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To bring something of my own to write on. Also, that there would only be one interviewer per person." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Gtown has "societies" and "families" to help make the large student body feel smaller and closer" More from this Member | Report Response

"How humid it would be lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour has you walking all around campus and it can be very muggy and hot in D.C. This is right before your interview, so you might be sweaty or winded right when you have to interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had read about how low-stress the interview was, yet I still managed to get myself very worked up before it. Please, please listen to what everyone says about the interview. 99% of the time, it will just be a casual, very enjoyable conversation!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I assumed this ahead of time, but everyone ended up going to the "optional" breakfast." More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interviewer had decided he didnt like me before we met" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had heard bad stories about interviewing here, that the staff was unfriendly, and they were right. Otherwise the interview was my toughest, but I think it was just because I was interviewed by a surgeon who was busy at the time and who didn't quite "get" me (I'm a nontraditional applicant)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be sitting in one room the whole time I was there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Eat breakfast. The med school building is on the opposite side of the campus as the entrance on 37th and O street." More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely read up on cura personalis if you haven't already. I was happy that I had, that the class size is so large, that the optional morning lecture (which every interviewee attended) would be so boring" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just relax" More from this Member | Report Response

"that you can take the metro and then the GUTS bus. and it is easy." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wish I'd known that being interviewed by an intimidating MD who asked tough questions (rather than a student, like most of my fellow interviewees that day) was not necessarily a bad thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"know about health care reform" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would like the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"That it wouldn't be as stressful as I had thought..." More from this Member | Report Response

"to have LOTS of questions--most interactive day so far at every point they want to have a conversation not just an information session. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviewers can grill you with medical scenarios-- I didn't get that but one of the interviewees did and he was pretty shaken up coming out of it." More from this Member | Report Response

"How much sitting I'd be doing." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the whole Catholic/Jesuit thing wasn't so bad..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure to come early if you're driving yourself. Parking may be a problem. Also, bring quarters for the toll on the freeway. I barely had enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Georgetown was no where near as bad as people make it out to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer had not read my file beforehand, but it turned out great because I got to tell my story and express my enthusiasm to him in person firsthand." More from this Member | Report Response

"how much I would really dislike the school. Georgetown is definitely not for everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the school seems to be in serious trouble financially and that the situation does not look optimistic" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student body is comprised of small-town, less prestigious schools, and that the school lacked diversity. Also their avg MCAT/GPA are quite a bit lower than expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"i wished i got a different interviewer, but i guess thats uncontrollable." More from this Member | Report Response

"not to waste my 100 dollars sending a secondary. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That Georgetown was certainly not worth the trip. If I could go back, I would not attend this interview..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone raves about Mrs. Sullivan's talk but I thought she was abrasive. She definitely is completely honest about the school and whether you will fit, but her attitude is off-putting" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview wasn't as tough as I thought it would be! (I was expecting ethics questions, seeing as they are Jesuit... got none whatsoever)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That Georgetown is so great I want to cry" More from this Member | Report Response

"the metro is ridiculously easy to use" More from this Member | Report Response

"be prepared for tough questions by the admissions staff before your interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't know that Georgetown now has a research requirement.

More from this Member | Report Response

"There were no real surprises." More from this Member | Report Response

"That i was going to LOVE it. This school quickly climbed to becoming a top choice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nuns/priests teach ethics classes" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cura Personalis." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was told that out of each interview round, they only accepted 15 out of 75 applicants. I was a little turned off by this because since I had such an early interview, many of the candidates in my group were exceptional. I would hope that Georgetown chooses people based on their backgrounds and not because they have a set number they abide by. Also, my interview was closed file. Since I do have varying experiences, I was hoping that my interviewer would have asked more in depth questions to get to know me and get a feel for my motivations. Instead, I found myself volunteering a lot of my information. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the lunch would be so plain and boxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school didn't reflect the negative interview feedbacks I read on this page. I went in there with an open mind and I was glad I did. " More from this Member | Report Response

"that Georgetown is so isolated from the rest of DC (no subways, just buses)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Georgetown's financial problems - their hospital system has had a lot of cutbacks and in my opinion, is not a place I'd want to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"The georgetown, and Georgetown University bus are differnt busses." More from this Member | Report Response

"just how different their curriculum is from other schools, in terms of the strong emphases on clinical work and community service (and thus less on research)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That first years take quite a few classes with post-bacc students... Makes for a very crowded lecture hall." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is cold in DC this time of year!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The passionate nature of everyone on the campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Do not place much stock in the negative feedback that has been left about the school. If you are fortunate enough to receive an interview, do yourself the favor of attending with an open mind. As long as you are not looking for a bunch of pomp and circumstance to win you over, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the school - you cannot help but be impressed with the school's ability to place their graduates in top residency programs!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Too many to list." More from this Member | Report Response

"Sigh. Chinatown bus can sometimes be a no-show." More from this Member | Report Response

"How right the other SDN negative impressions were." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have liked to know more about the Georgetown/DC area before visiting. I liked the campus and its surroundings, but wasn't certain I could see myself living in DC full-time." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school is just as interested in impressing us as we are in impressing our hosts and interviewers." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had heard (I believe on SDN from another interviewee) that Georgetown students are the most in debt of any other med students in the US. The financial aid representative who speaks at the beginning of the day said this was not true, and it is a rumor going around that discourages a lot of potential students, I was one of the potential students semi-discouraged by that, but I'm glad I found out its not true!" More from this Member | Report Response

"we would have no interaction with students during the scheudled interview day/time. but you can meet up with students later or on another day to get more info." More from this Member | Report Response

"The details listed above." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is open file, except grades, MCAT, and references. I wish I would've known how laid back the atmosphere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"that the day would start off inspiring (mrs. sullivan's talk about the school) and that it would all down hill from their (crappy tour, crappy tour guides, bad lunch, worthless interview) in other words, i wish i had known better than to waste my time, money, energy, and part of my paycheck on this interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"A claim that 3rd-year students will frequently have 16-18 hr. work-days 7 days a week..that seems excessive. Nobody learns best when miserable, and having 6 hours a day to divide between sleep, talking with loved-ones, eating, and exercise is just not reasonable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That students at Georgetown are viewed as open bank accounts. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The notorious reputation of the I-495, and the fear of 1 inch of snow, which causes widespread closings throughout the DC/Maryland area (I'm from NY where schools do not close until we have 3 feet of snow)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The GUTS bus is white, not blue, and is not the same thing as the normal Georgetown-Metro shuttle." More from this Member | Report Response

"That flying out of National in the winter is entirely impossible." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer does not see your file until you walk into their office to interview. You take a folder with portions of you AMCAS application with you to the interview so they are reading it for the first time during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"see above." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had brought an umbrella!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I understood the Metro system better. I fell asleep on the Metro, woke up and got off the wrong stop. " More from this Member | Report Response

"they don't give you any sort of itinerary, so you don't know who is interviewing you or when. you just wait in the fishbowl until you're summoned. really weird. " More from this Member | Report Response

"-it was super easy and fast to take the metro to the dupont circle stop and take the shuttle from there to GT" More from this Member | Report Response

"How incredibly beautiful the surrounding area is, some students leave GT with over $200,000 in debt" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much fun Georgetown is. I would've stayed longer. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would love the location and the city. I wish that I'd done G-Town early acceptance. I can't wait for the 6 weeks to be up." More from this Member | Report Response

"not a lot of time to ask questions, most of the day is spent having people talk to you; don't get to meet any other students than the one who gives the tour (are all the other students completely unhappy there so they try to hide them??)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That Georgetown was so much cooler than I thought" More from this Member | Report Response

"The great opportunities for early clinical experiences that Georgetown offers and how important this aspect is to their curriculum. Better than all other schools I have looked at." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are much more easy going and laid back than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"How amazing their program is. It is a unique program, so I would advise understanding it as well as you can to ensure you know if you could be happy there or not. Mrs. Sullivan is great." More from this Member | Report Response

"They have a 5 year research track program." More from this Member | Report Response

"A long day and a lot of waiting. I should have brought something to read." More from this Member | Report Response

"You can keep your bags in the fishbowl. The day is long and mostly spent in the fishbowl. I wish I had brought a soda or something to perk me up a bit before the interview at the end of the day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had brought more money to spend because I forgot how good the shops in Georgetown are. " More from this Member | Report Response

"was well prepared and Mrs. Sullivan and Georgeen filled in any gaps." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had heard that they were HARDCORE against abortion, stem cell research, etc, however Mrs. Sullivan addressed these issues and discussed how one will learn about them. While abortions are not performed at the Gtown Teaching Hospital, one could observe them at one of the affiliates. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have been more relaxed. The whole day was interesting and turned out way less stressful than I thougth it was going to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing i can think of." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing in particular" More from this Member | Report Response

"Having read SDN and the Georgetown website, I felt very well-informed." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would be possible for an interviewer to ask too few questions. I didn't prepare myself to fill the void created by his relative quietness." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students didn't seem all that happy (only met like 5 though). " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known that the school doesn't use its jesuit affiliation to hinder any of its curriculum. In fact, it enhances it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was going to write down so much and that i shouldn't have forgotten my pen at the hotel signing my credit card bill. Also, there is a Georgetown University bus and a Georgetown city bus, which I didn't realize until I got on the wrong one." More from this Member | Report Response

"That GT was so into underserved populations. That's a big draw for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the negative feedback on this site about Georgetown was way off base. I came in trying to have an open mind, but definitely ready to be unimpressed b/c of all the bashing on this site. The school was sweet, and the group that I interviewed with was the nicest/coolest group of interviewies I've seen so far. I could not have been more impressed with any aspect of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You can store your luggage in the "Fish-Bowl" if you need to. It gets locked." More from this Member | Report Response

"Their commitment to social justice isn't just a smoke screen. My interviewer was really involved in changing health care delivery for the underserved. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That they had absolutely no interest in me. Every person I met told me to stay at home and go to my state school. I wouldn't have wasted the time or money if I had known how I would be treated." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cant think of anything" More from this Member | Report Response

"Georgetown's US News & World Report ranking really should be higher. The school has remodeled some of the facilities and the students really are pretty cool. (They were dragging a keg around when we were touring.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Georgetown is a beautiful campus and DC is a great town to live. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That this was not the school for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really wish I had stayed with a student host to get a better feel for the school. I don't feel like I learned much about the school I coudl'nt have read on their website. I think interviews should be about getting a feel for the campus and studnet life, not just listening to talks about curriculum and financial aid." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the questions I had prepared to ask during my interview were going to be answered through the numerous information sessions they gave before the interview...basically, I had to think of new, interesting questions in a time span of about 5 minutes on my way over to the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is supposedly an opportunity to do research, but it's hard to see how that would be possible since the students spend a great deal of time in lecture." More from this Member | Report Response

"4th year med students live more like residents than students. good or bad...not to sure! " More from this Member | Report Response

"I took courses at Georgetown and I had heard a lot of negative things about the medical school. I wish I had listened and never applied." More from this Member | Report Response

"First interview, was less stressful than I would have thought" More from this Member | Report Response

"No coffee available in the "fishbowl", I was counting on that after a sleepless night before." More from this Member | Report Response

"Residency placements were so-so. I didn't get a sense that the student body was terribly dynamic, just there to study. That undergrad classes are free to med students. $57K per year (tuition + cost of living). " More from this Member | Report Response

"That you will be the school's indentured servant during 3rd and 4th year" More from this Member | Report Response

"although g-town does have a catholic affiliation, you don't have to possess catholic views. i am pro-choice and although abortions are not going to be performed at the school, you'll still learn about them and they won't dissuade you from your opinions. Also, g-town has some amazing classes such as a class in alternative healing...how cool is that! The only big problem is that there is no diversity of the student body ethnically." More from this Member | Report Response

"You spend the majority of your time in the "fish-bowl." SO, sit in the chair and not the bench. Im glad I sat in the chair because those benches would have done a number on my back and could have made my interview later in the day difficult." More from this Member | Report Response

(When someone pops a question at you they aren't looking for anything sophisticated - just say something short and normal.) This whole thing was a little weird, but it shows that they're really concerned with the acceptance process and take it very seriously." More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking really is as bad as they claim." More from this Member | Report Response

"The warnings on SDN about Ms. Sullivan were unnecessarily strong. She believes strongly in the mission of the school, and it is part of her job to help to select students who will be comfortable.

"If Georgetown's "cura personalis" philosophy really resonates with you, then this is the place for you. If it doesn't, then the interviews and the interview day will really demonstrate how if you aren't committed to the same philosophy as Georgetown, then it's probably not the place for you. And that's okay. Just go with an open mind and really have an understanding of their philosophy and how it is reflected throughout the curriculum, as they are very proud of this (as they should be)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Mrs. Sullivan's talk gave some fantastic insight into the school and helped me determine whether it was a good fit for me. She said that any med school will teach you to be a physician-scientist, but Gtown will teach you to be a physician-healer and a physician-advocate as well. Pretty cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Sullivan gave a dramatic, cynical, and rather obnoxious heart-to-heart talk during which she told us how homogenous every med student is, how Georgetown is probably not for us, how 15% of students are gunners and she can't change that, etc...just a bunch of end-of-days nonsense that scared us all." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a great school that I'd love to attend, but I was turned off by the huge, throbbing boner they have for their match list. I found this odd when juxtaposed with the cura personalis philosophy and Jesuit tradition of service to the poor and underserved. The COA (~80,000/yr) is absurd and probably pushes a lot of potential generalists into higher paying specialties, but they don't seem particularly interested in changing their specialty percentages. Compared with other schools I've visited, the students and overall atmosphere seemed fairly immature and frathouse-y. But that doesn't mean much since interview days only expose applicants to a tiny subset of the student body and the older students are probably less likely to be hanging out on campus. Unlike a lot of schools, they provide a lot of real, detailed information and plenty of opportunities to ask tough questions of people who actually know the answers. I liked that and definitely sensed the "cura personalis" philosophy more than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"I very much got the vibe that Georgetown wasn't anyone's first choice. Most of the students I met were non-trads or Georgetown was the only MD school they had gotten into. Even the Dean of Admissions acknowledged that he knew it wasn't anyone's top choice in the room. The students are nice enough but don't seem particularly happy. The preclinical building adds to the sort of dreary atmosphere - there aren't any windows and your classes are underground in a basement. That being said, the location in DC can't be beat if you're interested in advocacy of any sort, and the Georgetown neighborhood is gorgeous. The students all agree that they are well prepared for boards and 80% of students matched their top choice last year. Ortho seems like a particular favorite, and I heard several people talk about the large number of orthopedic surgery residencies that successfully matched last year. Given a choice, I would probably choose elsewhere, but it may just be that Georgetown isn't the place for me." More from this Member | Report Response

Mrs. Sullivan seemed quite defensive by the fact that Georgetown's ranking was low on usnews & world report both in research and primary care and that students would select many other schools over Georgetown. She seemed to have memorized a speech about cura personalis (a concept every med school I interviewed at does anyway w/o using a latin-sounding name) and vaguely defended how the school was against abortion but not entirely. The doctor who spoke to everyone during lunch time was trying to tell us that despite the fact that Georgetown University Hospital was sold to MedStar, its location in the nation's capital still attracts many students.

The interview itself was one of the more difficult ones that I have had. Still, my interviewer was friendly and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say.

"Aside from Mrs. Sullivan, I was really disappointed by how the interview day was structured. For a great school, they could have made the day much more welcoming, but maybe it's part of a love it-or-hate it strategy, since they do a good job of making it clear that they have a specific identity and they only want students who understand and match it exactly. But I think providing more opportunities to speak with students and not keeping interviewees isolated for most of the day would help package the things that they do have going for them."

"I'm surprised there isn't a whole thread devoted to Mrs. Sullivan on here as apparently she is the most indelible part of the interview experience. I was a little taken aback at they way she addressed people and by some of the inappropriate questions she asked, e.g. ''Say something. I want to hear a Chinese speak in a Southern Accent because thats so funny'' and ''You're Catholic aren't you? How many times a week do you pray on your rosary?'' To be fair, Mrs. Sullivan is an engaging speaker and had interesting things to say. I just think that the whole spirit of the day and the school should not ride on one person. How many of these interview feedback respondents haven't mentioned her? I didn't enjoy my interview. My interviewer was a moderately combative and distant. This was probably her interview style- make the person feel uncomfortable to see how he/she responds- but I didn't like it. The tour guides were nice enough even if they had no clue where they were going. And I don't like the SMP program because I think it may detract from the M1 experience and education."

"The interview day started with a rousing monologue about Cura Personalis and the Georgetown philosophy by Mrs. Sullivan. In my opinion, it seemed a tad contrived. The financial aid presentation was sobering, as all probably are. The tour was given be a very competent 2nd year student. I was a little disappointed by the facilities - truthfully, they do a lot of liver transplants, but with the large number of hospitals in DC, most tertiary needs are referred on to other hospitals. Consider this as well: Georgetown is somewhat set apart from DC proper, so their patient population is limited, and when students go into DC for rotations, they may compete with Howard and GW students for spots in subspecialties. My interview was completely closed file, and started with ''tell me about yourself'' question. The interview was fine, but like the admissions presentation, I was turned off that my interviewer seemed so intent making sure I knew medical school was going to break me. He also scoffed at my humanities background, and literally said ''medicine isn't philosophy and I don't care what you've accomplished, medical school will be the hardest thing you've ever done.'' I found it pretentious, especially coming from someone who hadn't even read my file. I hate to sound negative, but my interview day made me realize Georgetown isn't for me, which is fine.

"The applicants met in the fishbowl area between 9:30 - 10:00 am. After about an hour and a half of introductory briefs (Mrs. Sullivan's included!), we were given a tour of the facilities that was led by one MS2 and two MS1 students (see comments about facilities). All three of the students were very happy with their medical education at Georgetown. In addition to the availability and helpful nature of the faculty, the tour guides cited student camaraderie as reasons for their happiness. After lunch, the Assistant Dean for Financial Aid gave a brief on important points to consider and ways to prepare for the cost of a medical education (not just at Georgetown - he provided information that would be helpful regardless of which school you decide to attend). Finally, the one-on-one interviews were scheduled for either 2:00 pm or 2:45 pm. Some applicants had to walk to another building to meet their interviewer, but most were met by their interviewer in the fishbowl area. While the interviewers have the option of reading information from your AMCAS application (i.e. biographical information, ECs, and personal statement), they may choose to have a closed file interview. While one individual who left feedback complained about a long day, and a lot of walking, this could not be farther from the truth. A day that began at 10:00 am and ended at 3:00 pm is short in comparison to many other schools. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I came into the interview day with a pretty open mind -- I knew the school was Catholic, but Georgetown has a reputation for being the "Un-Catholic" Catholic school. I thought it was interesting how much of their informational presentation centered around their Catholicism (and mostly around assuaging the worries of Non-Catholics). They also came across as very sensitive to what people have written here on this site. I think they mentioned it 4 times, and were very quick to point out the inaccuracies of people's comments. I felt this was unecessary (I don't think the school should feel the need to defend itself against someone who comes to interview at a Catholic school and then complains about the presence of crosses on the wall), and overly reactionary. Also, as a Catholic, I felt that the school was overly eager to cater to and make non-Catholics welcome, to the point of making me feel apprehensive about how I, a Catholic, would be received. They spoke at length about all of the opportunities for peoples of other faiths -- prayer services for Muslims and Jews, fellowship groups for Protestants -- and then just stopped. They didn't say a thing about the opportunities for Catholics (maybe those are supposed to be obvious, but it seemed really odd). I'm not saying that other faiths shouldn't be welcome at Georgetown, just that they shifted so far to the other extreme in their presentation that they actually made me feel less welcome as a Catholic. I also felt like they were continually apologetic for their Catholic principles, providing excuses, disclaimers, and loopholes for their policies on Abortion/Euthanasia/Stem-cell research. On a last note, I feel the need to discuss the specific comments about this website. Specifically, I felt like Mrs. Sullivan's challenge (to sign my name on this feedback) was out of line. Whether Georgetown likes it or not (and I suspect they'd like it a lot more if people didn't keep saying negative things about them), this site provides a valuable and widely-used resource to applicants, and anonymity is an important part of people's ability to write honestly. On this site I've tried to be fair, but haven't been blindly positive, in all of my feedback -- if I was signing my name on every posting I'd be concerned that I would jeopardize my chances of admission based on the slightest of negative comments. I also think it interesting that Georgetown claims to so highly value the opinions of its students, yet they shrink from any criticism on this forum. Rather than defend themselves rabidly against any and all criticism, they should simply ignore the unmerited criticisms (the aforementioned complaint about crosses) and take to heart the merited ones. While anonymous forums are not a completely reliable indicator, the fact that nearly every other post on this site is negative suggests that Georgetown's interview day needs improvement. While I'm not going to sign my name here, as a compromise to Mrs. Sullivan (who, aside from her complaints about this site, I very much liked), I will post a link to this feedback on my (easily identifiable) MDapplicants profile at the conclusion of the application season. I don't feel comfortable posting my name on this open forum, but if the people at Georgetown would like to know who I am, they will be able to find that information out in the near future with a little bit of digging. I also hope that those at Georgetown who read this site recognize that my relatively negative feedback here does not indicate a lack of interest in the school -- I am maintaining an active application and can separate my negative feelings about how the interview was handled from all the positive things I have read/heard/seen about the school."

"Overall, i didn't like georgetown. the impressions of the school were very mixed that day (from the lack of interaction with students to the poor planning of time by the admissions committee). also, they stressed in the morning how much they value feedback from the students on cirriculum, student life, grading, testing, etc. but at the end of the day i asked them if they had a feedback form to interviewees to fill out and they said no and looked at me like i was crazy. i know i am not a student, but in all the visits i have had with med schools this was the only one that didn't ask for my feedback and was the one school that needed it the most. Also, our lack of interaction with students and faculty at the school sends the message that they don't enjoy life at georgetown enough to want to sell the school to perspective students. that makes me want to get my medical education at an institution that people are excited about--not georgetown."

"I was excited to visit Georgetown because of its location, its curriculum, and its good reputation. At the beginning of the day, Mrs. Sullivan from admissions gives a very informative and inspiring presentation about the school and its mission. She made sure to emphasize the fact that Georgetown is looking for students that area good fit. After meeting several students, including our tour-guides, I discovered that GU does a great job of picking a certain type of student. Yes, everyone I met was embarassingly immature, completely un-intellectual, and was more conceited than anyone I have met at any other school. Cura Personalis?? I got the impression that the students flushed this idea right down the toilet the second they got their acceptance letters and bought their Georgetown Medicine car window decals. All in all, Georgetown may be a good school with some noble goals for medical education, but the students representing the school really ruined it for me. If you interview, please be pro-active and try to meet as many students as possible. If not, you'll be shielded from the majority of them, and I now know that admissions has good reason to do that. Thanks but no thanks, Georgetown. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was late because the Georgetown shuttle was running way behind, and I ended up taking a cab which took a long time to arrive and was more expensive than I'd expected. The fishbowl wasn't as weird as SDN makes it sound and the presentations before lunch were great. The school obviously has greater dedication to explicit clinical education than most other schools, but I'm not sure that all the hand-holding through your clinical learning is necessary. I wasn't impressed by the students particularly: they seemed nice but not really that excited to be there. Also there's very limited interaction with students during the day. The facilities were very nice. It sounded like it was fairly easy to find housing in the area but that it is a pain not to have a car and a pain to pay for one in the city, and overall really expensive to live in Georgetown. I was very thrown off by having my first closed-file interview, since I spent most of the interview telling basic information about me instead of sharing more in-depth interpretations of what those experiences meant."

"The day starts at 10. First there is an introduction to the school by Ms. Sullivan (who is awesome by the way!)She does a very good job of laying down the facts about Georgetown, she also does a very good job of selling the school in a subtle way. Not that she really needs to, it is an amazing institution. This lasts about an hour, then there is a financial aid presentation that lasts 30 min. There isn't anything new if you've had one before. After that there is a tour given by first years. The facilities at the school are good, but nothing that stands out compared to the other schools I have been to. What really sells the school to me is they way they teach medicine there and the philosophy that they use. After the tour there is lunch with the dean. (Catered sandwhiches) Then the interview. I interviewed with a 4th year. He was way cool, and was interested in getting to know me as person. I guess there are 4 or 5 questions that all of the interviewers are supposed to ask, but he said to me that we'll get those out of the way first so that we could talk about real life which I thought was really cool. We hit it off really well, and the rest was very conversational, and he told me what his experience was like at Georgetown." More from this Member | Report Response

"Georgetown was my first interview, and I was more nervous than the rest of the pack.

Definitely good to have a second year student as one of the three tour guides. Wish could have interacted with third and fourth years." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt removed from the students in a way that I did not at any other interviews I've had thus far. We were only exposed to 4, and 3 of them were our tourguides, and were a bit stressed out/disorganized. They were all first-years, thus they had only been at Georgetown for a few months and were probably a bit overwhelmed. The talk in the morning was inspiring. I also enjoyed talking with the Dean over lunch although it's never ideal to be scarfing down lunch while the other person just talks to you and is not eating. The curricular overhauls sound well-thought out and will make for an amazing program. Opportunities abound. I waited over an hour and a half to have my one interview. Although it's less stressful to only have 1 interview, I also feel that you have a better chance of clicking with someone if you have two chances. The interview was not too stressful, pretty conversational. " More from this Member | Report Response

Don't let the rankings sway you. Although G-Town is ranked "very high," some people may choose a higher ranked school, solely on this factor alone. Georgetown has incredible residency placements, and rankings are based on many factors that do not translate to the quality of the medical school experience.

The schools is in a great area and students coming out of GUSOM are incredibly successful in all fields.

My interview was with a Ph.D. I was unfortunately misinformed by the interview coordinator who gave me the impression that my interviewer was an MD by saying that she was in family medicine so there was a slight moment of awkwardness while my interviewer explained that she is not an MD. It was also a little weird at first when I had to sit and watch her for five minutes while she read my file (which you are given to take to your interviewer), but afterwards it was fine. She had to fill out a sheet, which she did while I talked, and then she put it back in my file, which I then had to return to the admissions office myself. " More from this Member | Report Response

I didn't feel nervous until right before the interview. My fellow interviewees were all very nice and likable. They were a pretty diverse group. I've seen a lot of complaints on this website, about student tour guides in particular, but I liked ours. I felt that they were honest but definitely positive and that they are enjoying their experience at Georgetown. The faculty was great overall. My interviewer was very nice and comforting, but the interview was short (maybe even under 30 min., I didn't look at the time right as I went in) and I felt like I had more to say to persuade him that I was a good candidate. I really wished he'd asked more questions, and even some more difficult ones, like about medical ethics. But despite that, I still felt that I did well and made a good impression.

All of the talks were very informative and helpful - I would have preferred, however, that we had had our interview in between one of the talks. After Ms. Sullivan spoke, we were taken by MS1s and 2s first for lunch (yummy) and then on a tour of...well...I'm not sure of what. We saw some of the medical school building...and a floor in the hospital...and other buildings were pointed out - but we never went there. We did see the MS1 classroom (very nice) and some new facilities for patient-based clinical correlative exercises (also very nice), and the student lounge (nice), but that was it. Then we went back to the fishbowl (which, btw, looks nothing like a fishbowl and was really, really hot) and just hung out until our next talk. After that, we were plucked up for interviews one-by-one. Very long day. But I do feel like I know a heck of a lot about Georgetown now." More from this Member | Report Response

Jesuit tradition = we give you ALL the knowledge, and trust that you will do good with it. You learn how to do anything you would do at any other M.D. program in the USA. Interview was smooth.

Mrs. Sullivan gives a very thorough talk about what Georgetown is not and why its not for everyone. I liked everything she said and feel that Georgetown's curriculum is definitely for me. But we had very limited student interaction and not a great tour, so it was very hard to gauge whether I would truly be happy living at Georgetown for four years of my life.

"When Dr. Sullivan says, "We're not better, not worse, just different," notice that she almost always goes on to say something negative about another school. It bothered me that she acted so fair, as if this whole spiel was just to help us, not to persuade us that Georgetown was the right school for us, when actually it was. Especially since, while most schools do not call it cura personalis, they all believe in holistic care. I don't think Georgetown is light years ahead of everyone else just because they have a phrase for it. Also, make sure you know that they have a forced bell curve on their grading system, meaning that some students must fail every exam. The atmosphere is also much more competitive than they let on.

"Had a much greater depth in the messege of what it truly means to be a doctor than the 5 other schools that I have interviewed at (even though the other schools were 'ranked' higher). I have many of the valuse that were brought up (not necessarily religious), and I know that I will practive them elsewhere. Patient-Oriented-Problem-Solving (POPS) seems to be just another variation of PBL...which they also have." More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent school -- would recommend it to students who want to work very hard as there's lots of extra, rigorous training" More from this Member | Report Response

"I came to Georgetown expecting to hate the school, but I ended up loving it. I was concerned about the influence of the Catholic Church, but Mrs. Sullivan's talk erased my doubts. The school isn't for everyone though, there is one-to-one learning, not that much diversity, and the school is expensive. But everyone was really helpful, new facilities are being built, and lectures seem to be optional. I felt like my interviewer was trying to be tough, but by the end he was really nice and encouraging. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised at how fond I became of the school. The sentiment that you either love it or hate it has been repeated several times here -- perhaps that's a consequence of the school appearing to have such a defined character (cura personalis, intense clinical training, Jesuit history, etc.). I appreciated that they went over the curriculum in detail, esp. the third year (which is hardcore). The interview itself, with an M4, was very pleasant and conversational; other than those I've posted here, I can't recall any blatant Interview Questions. We discussed the state of the current health care system as well as outside interests. At the end of the day, I was happy I visited." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great day at Georgetown and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the school and its cura personalis philosophy. D.C. would be an amazing place to live for the next four years." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish they wouldn't spend so much time harping on how you should find another place. Mrs. Sullivan was interesting...I guess the reason she inspires such a love/hate response is that she's not your mainstream motivational speaker. I think she made a lot of valid points and tried to give a clear view of what georgetown is and is not. The interviews were very laid-back, which was nice. all conversational, but kind of weird that they are "closed file" until you get there and then you hand them some info from your app. some people spent the first few minutes of the interview reading up on the interviewee, with the candidate just sitting there...this seems disorganized and odd. overall not a bad experience. DC is great, but expensive. The quality of the education is good and they seem to be working to deal with financial issues. just wish they would stop trying so hard to scare everyone away (especially those who agree with their vision and like their educational philosophy)!"

"There was a small group of nine other interviewees.

"Georgetown is a good school in a great area but fails to distinguish itself from the private school heap. Could have been any school." More from this Member | Report Response

"very informative, encouraged introspection more than analyzing the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"You get there in the morning and sit in the "Fish Bowl." (God only knows why they call it that--it has no more windows than a regular room!) Mrs. Sullivan talks for a looooong time. Remember: Dont fall asleep, theya re paying attention! Tour and lunch are brief, then its time for the dean to talk. After that, you get called out for your interview. At this point you either luck out or you dont. I got a 4th year, so I feel like I lucked out. Some will get the dean and other will get doctors....its a real crap shoot I guess, so good luck."

"Georgetown U has an great curriculum, begining with an awesome philosophy that truly forms the foundation of all that the school does. Furthermore, the intense and early clinical exposure appears to be excellent preparation for residency. I love the school for these reasons, but I am very *distracted* by extremely poor facilities. Additionally, if I understood correctly, the hospital had to be leased out to a private company last year. That may be indicative of a money problem. Lastly, while the neighborhood of Georgetown is very, very chic, nice, and apparently cool, the traffic leaves something to be desired (but hey-- thats probably true for any city)" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was kind of confrontational. He asked me about Universal Health care and whether or not it would work in the US and what the US should do about the health care problems. I did a little dancing, but he kept on this subject for a while. He proceeded to ask basic questions regarding my application. He was a nice guy but it seemed like he was looking for something specific and specific answers during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"You meet in this room called the fish bowl (you'll see why). The very nice staff talks to you about how you should consider if Georgetown is the school for you and not worry about doing well at the interview. Next, you get a financial aid talk which is pretty intimidating since the cost of living and tuition is high. You also get a long talk about the philosophy of the school which should give you a good idea of if Georgetown is a match for you or not. The tour and lunch with students is informative and you do get to see some of the hospital and the anatomy lab. The interview is pretty low key, mine was with a fourth year student who was very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice school, nice area, good clinical opportunities, don't go if you want a top notch research school, but they really do have genuine and caring faculty and staff" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a positive experience, I liked the school and I really appreciated both the honesty and how informative the admissions staff presentations are, not only about Georgetown, but regarding medical schools in general. If I were in a different position, I would probably be considering it a great deal, but since I have already been accepted to a school higher on my list, I think the quality of the facilities etc are going to be the deciding factor for me if accepted at Georgetown." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts at 10AM, which is nice. You get an interesting overview from the interview coordinator and the admissions counselor - they are pretty intense, but they are truthful and up front with every aspect of the school. They specifically addressed what attending a Jesuit university means to you (important to me since I'm not a very religious person). Yes, they name drop, and it's a little out of place, but I appreciated that they took the time to learn my name. It made me feel like I wasn't wasting my time and money visiting the school. They will tell you the 8 questions the interviewer asks you before you go to interview, which helps alleviate any nervousness. My interviewer was completely friendly and welcoming. The students seem fun, happy, and unstressed. The facilities are fine - not extraordinary, but not awful either. The neighborhood is fantastic. Overall I would love to go to this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel like Georgetown, more than any other school I've been to so far, is either right for you or it's not. For me it wasn't right...and they must have sensed it too, as I got waitlisted there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was excited about my visit here, but was very disappointed by the fancy, formal introduction that was not backed up by good facilities or enthusiastic students and faculty. I couldn't fathom paying so much for such an average school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Calm, relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"I must say, the admissions staff do everything they can do weed out those applicants "on the picket fence." They are proud of their unique tradition in medical education and only want students that believe in them to study there. Listen to Sylvia's speech---she is brutally honest and very thorough. I do not think it is the school for me, but i apprecate the the staff offering me the wisdom to approach this process at other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interestingly and contrary to what I was told beforehand, my interview was open file. My interviewer was a very nice clinician and our interview felt more like a casual conversation than a formalized interview. (which I personally appreciated) It couldn't hurt to brush up on your clinical ethics a bit either." More from this Member | Report Response

"Extremely positive. There were a total of five interviews, with plenty of time to talk with students in between. Everybody from the office manager to the financial aid representative was extremely informative and extremely well-spoken. The MD/PhD interviews were relaxed, with the interviewers talking as much about their research as I was talking about mine. As a Christian, I find myself increasingly drawn to this school--they appear to be grounded in the Jesuit tradition and I see this as a strength, especially in light of the kind of education I am hoping for. Finally, they are extremely kind to applicants, and they allow you to feel like an active participant in the process. They want you to know that you have power in the process, even encouraging applicants to write letters of appeal if they are rejected. I will attempt to relate the most important interview questions at the bottom of this evaluation." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff at Georgetown really got me thinking about what I want out of a medical school. Although I was impressed by what I saw while I was there, I am no longer sure that Georgetown is the right place for me. If you are visiting, expect a fair an impartial presentation of the school.

"Of the 5 schools at which I've interviewed so far (2 of which rank significantly higher than Georgetown), I was most impressed by Georgetown. I just got that gut feeling from the school that I'd be really happy here. The area's gorgeous and the curriculum tries its best to cater to student's needs. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely think about if Georgetown's the right match for you. It seems that most of the school's diversity came from their GEMS program. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was the best place yet. The admissions staff are the nicest people ever. They truly go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are great. The school is awesome too. The curriculum is good, and the 3rd and 4th years are a great learning experience. The area is great. The environment seems very importants and the students seem cool too." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed the interveiw, although I was a bit disappointed in the facilities. The admissions people were friendly, but they are really putting the ball in your court: does the mission of Georgetown fit yours, and if so, you should come. If not, don't bother. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"As I mentioned before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I found the school to be a pleasant surprise, even during the dreariest of days. The classrooms aren't of the highest caliber, but opportunities for clinical education are enormous. My interview, which was the last part of the day at GU, was very pleasant. Having reviewed some of the reviews on SDN, I expected some tough ethical questions, but I didn't get any of those. It was a very laid-back, collegial interview - I wasn't stressed at all. More importantly, I felt that the interviewer was interested in me and my experiences. It was a pleasant experience overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"I almost didn't go to this interview, but I am really glad that I did. I loved the school and the area. The ONLY thing that would prevent me from going here if I got accepted would be the cost. Putting that aside, this could possibly be my top choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"You get a quick introduction by Georgine, then Ms. Sullivan gives you a one hour speech about the school and it's philosophy. Financial aid then comes to tell you how expensive Gtown is and how much debt you'll be in when you graduate. Student tour after that, a Dean then speaks to you about the whole MedStar/Gtown deal while you eat lunch and then it's interview time. The interviews began between 2-3 for everyone. The last person left around 4." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got a really good feel for Georgetown on my interview day. The people were straightforward (which I appreciated) and the other interviewees (10) were really cool. Disappointingly, the facilities did not impress me, which was a let-down because I hoped it'd be a strong contender. The students seemed moderately happy, but the administrators and my interviewer definitely had it all together. My interviewer was SO funny, he was such a riot!"

"Georgetown was a wonderful place but, as they told us upfront, it might not be for everyone. If you don't want to do community volunteering or thoroughly explore religious and ethical tenets in medicine, this won't be your cup of tea.

"Overall, I was pretty impressed by the experience--you will probably hear a lot about Ms. Sullivan's speech--it is very inspiring and i like the fact that GU takes a very different approach than other med schools--they tell you about the school's philosophy and ask you to decide for yourself whether it is the right program for you. As for the interview--i had a really nice doctor as my interviewer and he seemed genuinely interested in finding out about me and where i had come from, what I was looking for in a school, and my views on ethical subjects. I wasn't nervous at all and had a great time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The applicants trickle in the fish bowl and wait until someone comes to greet everyone. You sit there and various people come in to talk to you. Then, you go on a tour, which includes some outside walking. Then it's time for lunch. The interviews are at the end. Supposedly, the interviewers get to look at your application right before the interview, but my interviewer seemed as if he had looked at mine for a while, as he had a list of notes and questions he wanted to ask me. During one of the presentations, they will tell you the interviewers are supposed to comment on 7 criteria. My interview was less conversational than at other schools, and I found this a little bit intimidating. My interviewer had a list of questions and would shoot them at me one after the other, but my interviewer was very nice. " More from this Member | Report Response
