"I wish we had opportunities to speak to more students. There was ample time to talk with the M2s at lunch, but it would have been nice to hear from some students in their clinical years as well. I only got the chance to speak to a few students, and a little more diversity of experiences at Georgetown would have been nice." Report Response
