What impressed you positively?

"The location in Georgetown could not be any better, in my opinion. The students and faculty I met were all wonderful. The meal in the faculty dining room was incredible -- easily the best meal I've seen at any school. Enjoy it." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish we would have been allowed into the hospital to get a peek. The tour overall could have been much more in-depth, although they do make a point of providing you will information for a self-guided tour at the end of the interview day for those of you who do not have a strict travel time. On that note, spend as much time in DC as you can while you are there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had read about how low-stress the interview was, yet I still managed to get myself very worked up before it. Please, please listen to what everyone says about the interview. 99% of the time, it will just be a casual, very enjoyable conversation!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If Georgetown's "cura personalis" philosophy really resonates with you, then this is the place for you. If it doesn't, then the interviews and the interview day will really demonstrate how if you aren't committed to the same philosophy as Georgetown, then it's probably not the place for you. And that's okay. Just go with an open mind and really have an understanding of their philosophy and how it is reflected throughout the curriculum, as they are very proud of this (as they should be)."
