What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Sullivan's schpeel about "cura personalis"-- treating the whole person. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That my interviewer, upon stating my like of Dr. Sullivan's ideas being taught in medical education, rolled her eyes and said "That's Sullivan's doing." Her actions, on top of the uninspiring tour guides, made me think Dr. Sullivan's words were just fluff. Construction around campus made tour almost useless." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Residency placements were so-so. I didn't get a sense that the student body was terribly dynamic, just there to study. That undergrad classes are free to med students. $57K per year (tuition + cost of living). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"While I think that the stated goal of Georgetown is wonderful in that they aim to treat the whole person and foster volunteerism, what I saw in the student body were individuals there to study, without deep passion and commitment to service. Could be a great (albeit expensive) place for an education but don't go there if you're looking to surround yourself with interesting, passionate students. " Report Response
