What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Keep Mrs. Sullivan's talk in the interview day: it was by far the best discussion I've been a part of regarding medical school admissions. I would suggest getting rid of the grumpy guy who "greets" the interviewees, or maybe getting him a bigger cup of coffee in the morning. Also, with all the talk about the excellent rotations and how prepared Georgetown grads are, let us talk to some M3's and M4's. Meeting the 1st and 2nd year students was awesome, but they have such a limited knowledge base as far as the clinical rotations go, and that's what I wanted to know more about." Report Response
