What was the most interesting question?

"It was a few days ago and I've had another interview since then, so I've forgotten the details about specific questions. There was the usual, why georgetown, why medicine, and there was nothing strange or difficult." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"the five interviews before this one." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"That this school seems to really have a philosophy behind what they're teaching which includes promoting your own personal growth. Therefore the curriculum and the school in general seems very flexible in allowing you to do what's best for you. They just seemed very honest and upfront and i like that. No pretensions, very real. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school seems like it's financially strapped. The financial aid presentation was very thorough and useful, but they're pretty clear that you're going to be in ALOT of debt of you go here. And then you meet with a dean who defends why the hospital merged with another group which apparently was controversial to some people but which i had no idea about. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You'll do a lot of sitting, esp in the morning when people come to talk to you which can get tiring, esp when you're trying to stifle a yawn after a while. but the speakers are both interesting and informative. The school is in the Catholic tradition, but my impression is that I wouldn't worry one bit about not being Catholic or Christian (I'm not) because I just don't think they really care so long as you are a basically good, moral person." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself is very laid back. My interviewer was a lovely old man who seemed genuinely interested in my experiences and thoughts on medicine. There were no tricky questions and he made me feel very comfortable." Report Response
