What impressed you positively?

"The beautiful new 110 million dollar hospital with the virtual reality surgery rooms on the 6th floor, and the spanking brand-new gym. I also really enjoyed interacting with the students, who were all very friendly and helpful, and create a cooperative learning environment for the study of medicine. Student happiness runs sky high at this school =)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of on-campus graduate housing (read: NONE!) - living in the surrounding DC/VA/MD areas will cost you a ton, unless you're lucky enough to have connections or find something close to $1000 . . . if not be prepared to have roommates for all four years or pay rent that's closer to $2000/month. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Relax and breathe, and realize that they already want you at their school - that's why they invited you for an interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed visiting GW, for its emphasis on patient care and cooperative learning. The interview was EXTREMELY low-stress . . . it's more to supplement your application than to evaluate you (or so I think . . .) Definitely a great interview experience, designed to be as little stress as possible." Report Response
