What was the most interesting question?

"None. My interviewer was a very old member of the faculty and he seemed bored to be there. From the get-go, he was looking at the clock and asked me only very general, rote questions like, "What book are you reading now?" "Oh, well what about the last book you read?" Georgette in the admissions office told me before my interview that my interviewer was big into football. I suppose that would have been good for me if I could have given a damn about the sport." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

""Where is your college?" I go to a very good school, though it is small. Still, it was an awkward question because it made it clear to me that he didn't know a thing about my school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Georgetown is a beautiful campus, but you have to REALLY like living in a big city" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My crappy interviewer, the day was long and interview was at the end, they just dump you as soon as you are done with the interview, Mrs. Sullivan gave a really boring talk, my tour guides were immature and made comments like "I must have gotten into this school because I'm not white."" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"GT was not worth the plane fare. I interviewed at six other med. schools, and this was by far the WORST" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The 12 other interviewees who I got put with talked about how GT was a good "back up school" for someone. Maybe I agree; I would only have gone there had I not gotten into any other schools. The interviews are cold and unfriendly. " Report Response
