"That knowing the details of some specific health-related issues today would have made me look cool during the morning talk." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt removed from the students in a way that I did not at any other interviews I've had thus far. We were only exposed to 4, and 3 of them were our tourguides, and were a bit stressed out/disorganized. They were all first-years, thus they had only been at Georgetown for a few months and were probably a bit overwhelmed. The talk in the morning was inspiring. I also enjoyed talking with the Dean over lunch although it's never ideal to be scarfing down lunch while the other person just talks to you and is not eating. The curricular overhauls sound well-thought out and will make for an amazing program. Opportunities abound. I waited over an hour and a half to have my one interview. Although it's less stressful to only have 1 interview, I also feel that you have a better chance of clicking with someone if you have two chances. The interview was not too stressful, pretty conversational. " Report Response
