What impressed you positively?

"DC, obviously, and the area. GWU is in the hub of the city and close to a myriad of attractions, cool neighborhoods, etc. Also, MOST impressed by the emphasis on clinical work from Day One - this was promoted as one of the school's strongpoints, and I agree. Free, professional notetaking service/videotaping and audio taping of EVERY lecture. Absolutely non-competitive environment - students are laid back and the type I'd love to get a beer with." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Like everyone else, the cost. Your in the hole when you get out. PERSONALLY, I didn't find the classrooms that bad - the building is circa 1970 and the room reflects that- but it's not so bad you couldn't learn. Anatomy lab seemed a little outdated, tho. Library not open 24/7." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Students are the #1 asset of this school. This is not a research institution, and personally, I was relieved to discover that. Huge, huge, huge emphasis on clinical approaches to medicine." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I've spoken enough! If I were independently wealthy, this is a school I'd consider without a second thought. That not being the case, I'll have to consider finances when making a final decision on GwU." Report Response
