What impressed you positively?

"The school is in constant flux. True, the facilities are not state of the art, but rennovations are completely underway for many of the facilities, such as the interactive learning center. The curriculum is not static, in that, it is constantly evolving and improving. Mrs.Sullivans speech will definately give you the best picture as to if GU-SOM is or is not meant for you. The students seemed genuinely happy about their decision. THe city of DC is spectacular. There is so much to do. Overall, I loved this place and it is definitely my #1 school of choice."
