What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was the best one I've had so far. The stress was my fault alone. I've interviewed at 4 other schools, but GW is my first choice. Without a doubt, the best organized with the least amount of downtime (removed the stress of waiting around). The discussions, tour, lunch, student interaction, and interviews were well done. GW offers everything I liked at other schools - early clinical exposure, focus on primary care, diversity, residency placement, and the opportunity for a scholarly tract. Interviews were with a student and a physician. Both were very closed-file, so be prepared with a "tell me about yourself introduction"...and be sure to include everything important."
