What impressed you positively?

"Great hospital; new technology so you don't have to use microscopes in lab--it is all computerized; the students seemed genuinely happy to be there (even though they were in the middle of exams). Several students just stopped by unofficially during lunch (in addition to the 3 who were supposed to be there) and they all were really friendly and seemed really excited for us and really happy to be at GWU." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It doesn't seem smart to group exams they way they do--first years have exams every 6 weeks in all classes so the week I was there they had 1-2 exams each on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It would be nicer if they spaced exams out a little more." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my second interview so it was even less stressful than my first. We started with a short intro by one of the deans, then went on a tour of the hospital and med school building. Then we heard more about the school before lunch when several students came in to talk to us and answer questions we had. The interviews were last (one with a student and one with a faculty member) and they were pretty low-stress since they were closed-file so most of the questions were just about getting to know me."
