What impressed you negatively?

"There was only about 1/2 hour put aside for the student tour. I barely got to see the campus or the hospital. I only viewed the basement where most of the classes took place." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was told that out of each interview round, they only accepted 15 out of 75 applicants. I was a little turned off by this because since I had such an early interview, many of the candidates in my group were exceptional. I would hope that Georgetown chooses people based on their backgrounds and not because they have a set number they abide by. Also, my interview was closed file. Since I do have varying experiences, I was hoping that my interviewer would have asked more in depth questions to get to know me and get a feel for my motivations. Instead, I found myself volunteering a lot of my information. " Report Response

Mrs. Sullivan really got down to what Georgetown represents and if you are the right candidate for Georgetown." Report Response
