What are your general comments?

"I've been on about 8 other interviews and I think that this was the fairest and most appropriate one. My interviewer was very pleasant and I felt very comfortable. During the interview, she really gave me every opportunity to elaborate on my answers and I felt that I really had the chance to portray myself and my potential as a physician. The schools is in a great area and students coming out of GUSOM are incredibly successful in all fields. GU has a really great approach to teaching medicine and I wholely agree with their train of thought that it's important for med students to experience all realms of medicine. The students may face a very strenuous 4 years, but it's obviously a benefit in the long run." Report Response
