What impressed you positively?

"Diversity of the other people interviewing. Beautiful hospital." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That the beautiful hospital is mainly owned by an HMO (remember the troubles MCP got into by having an HMO own their hospital?) ; Darrell was condescending; Washington D.C. was freezing; the lack of financial aid and high cost of the school; that we did not get to eat lunch before our interviews; the fourth-year students that came to speak to us were pretty arrogant" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much debt I'd be in if I went to this school. It's just not worth it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had two interviews, one student and one faculty. Neither was stressful. I think GW's strength (for me) is in its location, choices of hospitals for 3rd and 4th year, and pretty good emphasis on diversity. Overall, however, I was not impressed, esp. b/c of how expensive it seemed. Even after interviewing, I couldn't get a sense of the school." Report Response
