What impressed you negatively?

"You spend pretty much all day sitting in the "fish bowl" hearing talks about Georgetown. The tour was brief and didn't show much of the campus. The only students we met were our tour guides, who of course were friendly and loved the school.....but no school would pick tour guides who are unhappy with the school. I wish we could have met more students to see if they really like Georgetown." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I really wish I had stayed with a student host to get a better feel for the school. I don't feel like I learned much about the school I coudl'nt have read on their website. I think interviews should be about getting a feel for the campus and studnet life, not just listening to talks about curriculum and financial aid." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went to Georgetown with very high hopes, expecting to love it and want to go there. Nothing that I saw negatively impressed me, but I don't feel as though I got a good feel for what the school is really about. Mrs. Sullivan gives a very thorough talk about what Georgetown is not and why its not for everyone. I liked everything she said and feel that Georgetown's curriculum is definitely for me. But we had very limited student interaction and not a great tour, so it was very hard to gauge whether I would truly be happy living at Georgetown for four years of my life. I can't say I wouldn't like it, but I can't say I would either. I feel like I need to go back again to really get a feel for the school. It was frustrating. " Report Response
