What impressed you positively?

"I really like the emphasis G-Town makes on ethics and serving the underserved. All the other schools I applied to barely touch on these two things whereas G-town integrates them fully into the curriculum. Also, the Georgetown area is GORGEOUS!!!! I fell in love with it...it's just too cute. The faculty that I met were great and seemed really student-oriented. In summary, I think this school is GREAT!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish the tour guides had their act together a little more. I felt like I really didn't see anything. No class rooms because the doors were locked...no anatomy lab... We got lost 3 times trying to find the peds floor of the hospital. The only beneficial aspect of the tour was that we were burning off our lunch calories by going up and down the stairs." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the school doesn't use its jesuit affiliation to hinder any of its curriculum. In fact, it enhances it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved it! My interviewer was from my state and his wife happened to have graduated from my undergrad institution so we immediately bonded. It's always more calming when the interview is more conversational than you just speaking. Georgetown has definitely been put in a positive light after this experience. Apparently they accept 15 out 100 applicants (minimum). I'm just crossing my fingers." Report Response
