"Beautiful campus, thorough explanation about the unique aspects of Georgetown" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The introduction was odd. People in the admissions office memorizing my name and using it sporadically in a presentation does not make me want to attend their school. The 4 students that had lunch with us were the most unenthusiastic I have seen at any interview, and one tour guide was outright obnoxious. The facilities are definitely not worth the price. This seems like it is a great school for someone who just wants to be in DC. (and wants a very conservative environment)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"First year lectures are shared with 2 other programs, so there can be up to 300 people in class - no wonder students complain about lack of faculty involvement." Report Response
