"where do you draw the line between euthanasia and letting someone die peacefully--i.e.--would you take a feeding tube away from someone in a persistant vegetative state if the family wanted it?""

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. " Report Response
