What impressed you positively?

"The interview day was well organized and extremely informative. It was very good information, not just specific to georgetown but for medical education in general." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students. Unlike other schools, the students did not come talk to the interviewees. The student tour guides were not knowledgeable about the school or program at all (perhaps because they were first years) and they did not seem that impressive and were kind of dull. My interviewer also negatively impressed me. He was a MS4 and had absolutely no facial expression and was very monotone. It appeared that he wasn't even listening to what i was saying almost as if he couldn't be bothered with it. The questions were just recited and there weren't really any follow up questions that there should have been. It was a lousy way to end the day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That this was not the school for me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After visiting Georgetown, I realized it wasn't the school for me. If you are interviewing here, be prepared for a REALLY long day. All the interviews are conducted at the end of the day, so be sure to gather yourself. I was so drained at the end of the day, after several informative albeit boring presentations, that my interview did not go as well as I had hoped." Report Response
