What impressed you positively?

"Cura Personalis (I may have spelled it wrong)-- means that Georgetown's curriculum has it's foundation in the Jesuit belief of treating the entire person, not just an objectified body. Very cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilties are terrible!! Are they having money problems or what? For such a well-know university, I was very surprised that the medical school, including the library (even with the renovations) are so old and shabby. How do they expect us to spend hundreds of hours in an anatomy lab that is probably the worst I have ever seen? Plus, a good, comfotable and nice library is very important, especially considering how much time I'll be spending there!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"DC traffic is horrendous" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Georgetown U has an great curriculum, begining with an awesome philosophy that truly forms the foundation of all that the school does. Furthermore, the intense and early clinical exposure appears to be excellent preparation for residency. I love the school for these reasons, but I am very *distracted* by extremely poor facilities. Additionally, if I understood correctly, the hospital had to be leased out to a private company last year. That may be indicative of a money problem. Lastly, while the neighborhood of Georgetown is very, very chic, nice, and apparently cool, the traffic leaves something to be desired (but hey-- thats probably true for any city)" Report Response
