What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"The interviews are closed-file (though your interviewer will get a copy of your file that you bring to him/her) so be prepared for anything!" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing- my interviewer was completely unprepared. She pretty much wanted me to just explain my interest in medicine, etc." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Questions were conversational, but since she was visibly irritated that I was there (she mentioned that she forgot I was coming and was already very busy), the entire thing was difficult because she cut me off a lot, took calls, was working on her computer, etc.. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read Georgetown's website, MSAR, looked over my application, current events, etc." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The personal contact with admissions staff, and the meeting to discuss the school's financial situation. It felt very honest and they were very forthcoming with information, good and bad." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Ancient facilities, no attempt to incorporate technology into the curriculum, lack of class diversity as stated on our tour given by first-year students!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The lack of elective time in the 4th year. You have 4 months of electives, but the rest of your fourth year is booked with acting internships and more classes." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although the interview day was low stress, I soon came to realize that this school is not for me. Everyone was nice though, Ms. Sullivan IS a bit intimidating however. Think carefully and be sure Georgetown's very traditional curriculum is for you. It's not a bad place though and the students seemed happy but stressed." Report Response
