What impressed you positively?

"The new hospital, which has lots of facilities for teaching (rooms for standardized patient experiences, and a vitual operating room) and will be truly wireless at some point. The new gym's pretty nice too. Also, this was the first interview where I saw a cadaver!" Report Response

"The lack of housing -- either you commute from the suburbs, or pay a lot (~$1500 for an efficiency/studio) for rent in Foggy Bottom. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The lack of financial aid available. The financial aid officer starts his presentation with details on the military program, which stuck out as a sign that the school doesn't have much to brag about when it comes to packages given/debt after school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really liked my second interviewer, a PhD; we talked about my research a lot. There wasn't one big tour -- an admissions counselor showed us the hospital, neighborhood, and gym, while a student showed the lecture halls and labs. The main tour was at the end of the day, an hour after my last interview, so we were all tired. The fact that it was a rainy day didn't help, though the Metro stop is right by the entrance."
