What impressed you negatively?

"Maybe instead of viewing studentdoctor.net, they should just have us to eval forms. And I would have liked to be in a different room than the so-called "fishbowl," but neither of these was a big deal." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Georgetown's US News & World Report ranking really should be higher. The school has remodeled some of the facilities and the students really are pretty cool. (They were dragging a keg around when we were touring.)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very low-stress interview with someone who had been with the school for years. I think he formed his opinion of me from my file, before ever seeing me. Luckily, I think it was positive. We just talked for a little while and he gave me his eval to give back to the office. Felt a little awkward because I would say something and then there would be a pause while he came up with a new question. It wasn't as conversational as I would have liked, but it gave me time to collect myself. I had a really pleasant time." Report Response
