What impressed you positively?

"The amount of preparation & patient contact you get. I got the sense that they prepare you very well to be an excellent clinician. I also liked the fact that they have a very clear vision and a strong sense of their own strengths and weaknesses. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That they said about a million times "this is who we are, if you don't like it, go away." It is completely valid (and important) to choose a med school that you agree with their philosophy and goals and fit in...but after hearing it all day long i was starting to wonder if they were trying to convince us all to go away. Also, it would have been nice to meet with more students...sort of got the impression that the few we talked to were only at georgetown because they didn't get into other schools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I wish they wouldn't spend so much time harping on how you should find another place. Mrs. Sullivan was interesting...I guess the reason she inspires such a love/hate response is that she's not your mainstream motivational speaker. I think she made a lot of valid points and tried to give a clear view of what georgetown is and is not. The interviews were very laid-back, which was nice. all conversational, but kind of weird that they are "closed file" until you get there and then you hand them some info from your app. some people spent the first few minutes of the interview reading up on the interviewee, with the candidate just sitting there...this seems disorganized and odd. overall not a bad experience. DC is great, but expensive. The quality of the education is good and they seem to be working to deal with financial issues. just wish they would stop trying so hard to scare everyone away (especially those who agree with their vision and like their educational philosophy)!"
