What impressed you positively?

"I really have no idea why everyone is so scared/intimidated by Mrs. Sullivan's talk. She tells you straight up what Georgetown is about (it is unique), its Cura Personalis philosophy, and goes on to say that it is not the best choice for everyone. She's honest and simply tells it as it is. She even offers a set of wonderful guidelines that can be used to select the best medical school for us. I don't understand what everyone's problem is with her; I guess no one likes her for actually caring about helping us find the school that fits us the best. After reading everyone's reviews about the facilities, i was expecting a garbage dump. However, what i found was decently nice facilities, with many improvements in the works. This is a school rich with tradition and will teach you how to become an all around healer, not just a master of the basic sciences. Listen to Mrs. Sullivan carefully: if you like what you hear, G'Town might be the place for you. If you do not, don't just bash the school: just say it wasn't for you and move on with your life."
