What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they really don't push students to do any research." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You meet in this room called the fish bowl (you'll see why). The very nice staff talks to you about how you should consider if Georgetown is the school for you and not worry about doing well at the interview. Next, you get a financial aid talk which is pretty intimidating since the cost of living and tuition is high. You also get a long talk about the philosophy of the school which should give you a good idea of if Georgetown is a match for you or not. The tour and lunch with students is informative and you do get to see some of the hospital and the anatomy lab. The interview is pretty low key, mine was with a fourth year student who was very nice." Report Response
