"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Georgetown places emphasis on clinical training early and often. Their third year is almost a "pre-residency" training period with some pretty ridiculous horus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. The interview was EXTREMELY relaxed - it was definitely a conversation more than an interview. Everyone who is there (facutly, staff, students alike) all seem to love it." Report Response
