What are your general comments?

"The interview day begins at 10AM with an introduction and campus tour through the academic building and the sixth floor of GWU hospital (the teaching floor). They show off all the newer stuff like Harvey the heart dummy and new online slides (a replacement for microscopes). They don't take you through any labs. After a short financial aid presentation and lunch I had two interviews, one with a second year and one with a doc. Both were very laid back and conversational. The day is over about 1PM. The cost of living in D.C. is quite high, especially if you get an apartment around GW. It's a little cheaper if you live farther from campus or in VA. Overall an extremely positive experience.
