How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, Looked on the Georgetown website, read my primary and secondary applications, read about current healthcare issues, RELAXED!!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Their philosophy and curriculum... they fit me perfectly. "Cura personalis"- treat the whole person. They believe in treating the mind, body, and spirit. They teach you not only the science of medicine, but also the art of healing. Ethics is woven into the curriculum all 4 years, complementary and alternative medicine is woven into the curriculum, religion in medicine, etc. Georgetown seems like they emphasize the importance of a well-rounded physician... I like that! Also, the clinical experience there seems really intense and educational." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost!! It's pretty much the same as most of the private schools... but there is a big difference when you are comparing the costs of a private school to a state school! Also, parking is horrible, but that is true with a lot of schools." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Metro system in Washington D.C. is great (clean and safe too)!! I definitely recommend using it... much cheaper than a cab and you can get pretty much anywhere. A $5 pass will let you ride all you want for a day. Plus there is a shuttle bus ($1) that goes from some of the metro stations to the Georgetown campus. It is very easy to get around in that area. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I almost didn't go to this interview, but I am really glad that I did. I loved the school and the area. The ONLY thing that would prevent me from going here if I got accepted would be the cost. Putting that aside, this could possibly be my top choice." Report Response
